Robert "Bob" Franklin Campbell
Robert "Bob" Franklin Campbell, 87 of Deltona, Florida passed away on Monday, September 28, 2020. He was born on June 13, 1933, in Henry, South Dakota to Glenn Franklin Campbell and Alice Elizabeth Anderson. Bob grew up on a farm where he used lots of ingenuity to make things work. He applied those skills serving in the United States Navy, as an IBM customer engineer and to life in general.
Bob had a servant heart and was often found helping others whether it was woodworking, fixing or teaching - never expecting anything in return just happy to pass on his knowledge. He was also a talented writer, poet and superb storyteller.
Bob was the beloved husband of Marlene Erickson Campbell for 58 years. Much loved father to Wendy Schaefer and husband Rick Schaefer; and Brenda Thornburg and husband Mark Thornburg. Cherished Popo (grandpa) to Clay Schaefer, Garret Thornburg, Marlana Thornburg and Tori Thornburg. Big brother to Jean Nogelmeier and uncle to Susan Harms.
He holds a special place in the heart of all who knew him.
We will miss him!
