Robert Wayne Campbell

August 4, 1937 — February 14, 2022

Salem

Mr. Robert Wayne Campbell passed to his next life with our Lord Jesus and Heavenly Father on February 14th, 2022.

Bob is survived by his devoted, loving, and honorable wife of almost 62 years, Sherry (Sherill), and his four children, Mark (children Casey, Scott, and Jason), Carrie (children Mitchell, Nathan, Jesse, and Claire), Tim (wife Diana and children Zachariah and Zebulen), Nathan (wife Lisa and children Kendall and Caleb), as well as four great grandchildren.  He is predeceased by siblings Don, Ken, and Sam Campbell and grandson Joshua (son of Mark) and granddaughter Caitlin (daughter of Mark), and is survived by brother, Jim Campbell and sisters, Mary Roodhouse and Peg Post.

Bob was known for his language arts teaching, his preaching and home ministry work.  He taught many elementary school children in Southern Indiana over 20 years and preached at several different church groups for more than 60 years.   He inspired many to follow a life of Christianity, serving others with an example of devout commitment to his beliefs and to a life of spiritual growth.

Bob loved tending the earth, caring for his animals, and grooming his property, and he had strong ties to nature and wildlife.  He enjoyed horticultural and greenhouse work for 45-50 years. His work ethic was exemplary to all.  When relaxing he would often be found reading a book or watching a college basketball game with Sherry.  He was also known for his love of Sherry’s good cooking and never missed a meal!

Bob’s push for excellence and hearty laugh will be greatly missed.  Please send your thoughts and prayers to Sherry and the rest of his family, who will miss him greatly.

A private burial will be held at Highland Baptist Church Cemetery.  A gathering to honor Bob will be held at Salem Agape Ministries, 1002 Lee Street, Salem, Indiana, on Saturday February 19 starting at 10:00AM with visitation followed by service at 11:00AM and a pitch-in lunch at 12 noon.

Please bring a dish to share as a gift to honor Bob and his family.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Freed From Within at 700 IN-62, Corydon, IN 47112.
