Robert Campbell was born on February 4th, 1952 at Abington Hospital in Abington, PA to William and Helen Campbell. Bob, as he was known to all who knew and loved him, was the second of five children. He is preceded in death by his father, mother, and brother, Bill Campbell. He is survived by his brother Jimmy and his wife Stephanie, his brother Richie and his wife Debbie, his sister Eileen and her husband John, and many nieces and nephews.
Bob married the love of his life, wife Michele, in 1975 after meeting in the cafeteria while in college at West Chester State College. Bob graduated from West Chester with degrees in biology and chemistry. Bob is survived by his wife, who will miss him forever. He is also survived by his daughter Melissa and her husband Andy, his daughter Rachel and her husband Steve, his son Matthew, his daughter Emma and her husband Keith, his son Zac, and his grandson, Logan.
Bob worked for various companies throughout his career as a quality control engineer. While he worked hard throughout his entire career to provide for his family, his passion was always in music. Bob was a musician who began playing guitar at the age of twelve. He joined his first band, Everybody's Nowhere, in middle school. Bob taught himself to play various musical instruments and played in many bands throughout his life. More than anything else, he loved playing the bass guitar. On the weekends he played many gigs throughout the region, sharing his love of blues, country, and rock and roll with those who came to listen.
His family will always remember him for his knowledge of all things related to Star Trek and other classic sci-fi black and white movies and his passion for the Philadelphia Eagles. While he was quiet and reserved, once he opened up his wit and sense of humor was contagious. Family dinners when all of his children were growing up will always be treasured memories, as everyone sat around for hours laughing and talking.
Bob passed away unexpectedly at the age of 66. He will be missed forever by all of his family and friends, who are heartbroken by this loss and will never forget all the memories they have with him.
