Robert Campbell
Robert Campbell, 58 Robert Campbell, 58, died in Philadelphia on Friday, July 9, 2011, after a prolonged hospitalization. Robert served as pastor at Tully Memorial Church since 2005 and as a Presbyterian minister for over 30 years.

He raised both of his children in his strong faith and ingrained in them both his values and sense of humor. Robert was as passionate about life as he was about his faith. Any person acquainted with Robert would not be surprised if he broke into song from Monty Python or a detailed debate on church doctrines. His warm smile and big hugs will never be forgotten, nor will the love and warmth that he shared with so many. Survivors: His wife Debby; son James; daughter Elizabeth; parents Frank and Jacqueline; brothers Don, Allan, and Ian; sister Cathy. Memorial Service will be held on Friday, July 15, at 10 AM at Tully Memorial Presbyterian Church, located at 126 Sharon Ave. Sharon Hill, PA 19079.

We recently moved to Princeton, NJ, and it occurred to me that I might reconnect with Bob, not having been in contact for a few years. Upon doing an internet search, I found a notice of his obituary, but could hardly believe it and couldn't access the site all day yesterday. I now see that it is true and am very sad.
The times we worked together in Oneida were full of rich discussions and supportive personal interactions. I greatly respected his personal and intellectual integrity.
My sincere condolences to all his family.

The Campbell family were our neighbors in Madison and Bob was my best friend in the grammar school years. How many 100's of hrs did we play, laugh, cry and break bread together? He was always a good - hearted guy and matured into a fine man who loved God and served his community selflessly. I am a better man for having known him and his loving devotion made the world a better place! I offer my heartfelt condolences to the Campbell family and friends. Big Love & Gratitude to you Bob!
Your Brother in Christ,

To the Campbell Family,
I am so saddened to hear of the passing of Bob. He and I graduated from MHS in 1970 and I had the pleasure of seeing him again at our class reunion in 2010. We were friends on Facebook and I looked forward to reading his warm, insightful words. He will be missed by all whom he touched.

I had not seen any postings on Facebook from Bob for a while so this morning I went to his page. I am saddened and shocked to learn of his passing. Bob was a wonderful teacher and I learned so much when I attended his Bible studies when I lived in Sharon Hill. My condolences to his family. I hope that you take comfort in knowing that he is in perfect peace with his Lord and Saviior Jesus Christ.

Dear Campbell Family,
I send sincere condolences in the loss of your husband and father. I was a classmate of Bob's from Madison and we became re-acquainted on Facebook. I enjoyed meaningful conversations with Bob on the topics of theology, history, politics, culture, and art. I will miss hearing the important and heartfelt "voice" he raised to life's cherished topics and will remember his words and wisdoms.

Dear Campbell Family:

I will never, ever forget Pastor Bob's kindness shown to my family just 3 months ago, when we lost my father-in-law, Kermit Walton. I remember thinking how lucky Tully was to have him, and what a kind and wise man he was. I had many people of different faiths come up to me after the funeral and say "If he was at my church, I'd go to church more often."

Please know you are all in our prayers at this horrible time.

I am so sorry for your loss. Rev. Campbell served as moderator for Darby Presbyterian for a few years. He was always very kind and patient with us. I kidded him at one of our session meetings that he "grew on me". He had such a great sense of humor. May God Bless you.
