Robert "Bob" Campbell III Obituary

Robert "Bob" James Campbell III passed away on January 10, 2024. He was 91 years old. Robert was born on October 10, 1932, in Bedford, Ohio, to the late Robert Jr. and Arleen Campbell.

Bob enlisted in the United States Army, serving with honor and distinction. He was a proud veteran of the 24th Infantry Division, and his commitment to his fellow soldiers earned him the respect of all who served alongside him.

After his military service, Bob transitioned into civilian life and became a highly skilled ironworker, leaving a lasting impact on the landscape through his contributions to various construction projects. His dedication to hard work and excellence in his craft made him a respected member of the Iron Workers Local 395.

Bob's commitment to community service extended beyond his professional life. He was an active and engaged member of numerous organizations, including the V.F.W. Post 988, where he served as the All-State Post Commander. His leadership, camaraderie, and dedication to supporting fellow veterans made him an invaluable asset to the V.F.W. community.

In addition to his involvement with the V.F.W., Bob was a proud member of the American Legion, Fraternal Order of Eagles, and the 24th Infantry Division Association. His passion for supporting veterans and fostering a sense of community left an indelible mark on those he served alongside. Bob was an advocate for responsible gun ownership, holding an Indiana carry permit. He believed strongly in the importance of individual rights while also recognizing the responsibility that came with them.

Bob leaves behind a legacy of service, camaraderie, and a deep love for his country. He will be remembered as a devoted husband, uncle, and friend, and his impact on the lives of those who had the privilege of knowing him is immeasurable.

Robert is survived by his nieces and nephews, James Campbell, Tom Campbell, Mary Ellen Zimmerman, and Cindy Warren; and sister-in-law; Barbara Campbell.

In addition to his parents, Robert Jr. and Arleen Campbell, Robert is preceded in death by his brother; John S. Campbell, his wife; Florence Campbell, and his nephew; John C. Campell.

A memorial graveside service and burial of his ashes will be held at a later date at Memorial Park Cemetery in Valparaiso, Indiana.
