Bland Hayden Campbell, III (Hayden), resident of Columbus, passed away on July 27, 2020, at the age of 62 after a courageous battle with cancer.  Hayden was born on March 4, 1958, in Monroe, Louisiana to the late Bland Hayden Campbell, Jr. and Frances Johnson Campbell.  His grandparents were the late Senator Hayden and Georgia Hetrick Campbell of Jackson and Reverend H.M. and Fannie B.

Hayden was liked and loved by all who knew him and he was known for having a great love for his family and a big heart towards everyone.  


He is survived by his daughter Hannah Colburn (Daniel) of Duncanville, Alabama and three grandsons:  Trenton, Braydon and Asher.  He is also survived by three sisters and one brother:  Ellen Campbell of Flowood, Katherine Marsh (Jerry) of Columbus and Christy Campbell of Flowood, and Edward (Robin) Campbell of Vicksburg.  Hayden will also be sadly missed by his nephew Christopher Marsh and niece-in-law Janet and nephew Tyler Marsh and ex-niece-in-law Lindsey, as well as his great-nephews and great-niece:  Elijah (deceased), Ethan, Aaden, Savannah, and Carson.
