Family-Placed Death Notice

CAMPBELL, Charles Obituary for Charles Edward Campbell October 29, 1921 - October 9, 2013 On October 9, 2013, my beloved father, Charles Edward Campbell, 91 went Home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He passed away peacefully in Johns Creek, Georgia. Born in Salem, Massachusetts on October 29, 1921, Charles grew up in nearby Beverly and Marblehead, Massachusetts. In 1960, he married Ella Smith Bowman ("Ella") of Hagerstown, Maryland and they resided there with me, Catherine Marie Campbell, their only child, and Ella's father. Charles lived in Hagerstown for 39 years before moving to the Atlanta, Georgia area to be close to me and other family members. My father honorably served his beloved America in two wars -- in WW II as a Technician Fifth Grade in the U.S. Army and in Korea as a First Lieutenant in the Officer Reserve Corps. In between WWII and Korea, Charles attended the University of Georgia on a football scholarship. In addition to being survived by me, my father is also survived by several nieces and nephews and grand-nieces and grand-nephews. My father was preceded in death by his parents, Thomas Henry Campbell and Katherine Mary Campbell (formerly Katherine Kelly); his wife/my mother, Ella; and by all three of his siblings, Margaret Elizabeth Szutiak, Ellen Dorothy Sullivan, and Thomas Henry Campbell, Jr. A Christian service for Charles will be held in Hagerstown, Maryland at the convenience of the family. On November 17, 2013, family and friends in the Atlanta area will gather at one of my cousin's homes to celebrate Charles' life.
