Capt. Robert C. “Bob” Campbell Sr.

WICOMICO CHURCH—Retired U.S. Air Force Capt. Robert Courtney “Bob” Campbell Sr. passed to the other side on his farm in Wicomico Church on December 29, 2020. He was born February 23, 1940.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Fred and Edith; and his wife, Debbie (Bullard).

He is survived by his sister, Betty Bicksler (Roger); daughter, Heather Campbell (Brian Davis); two sons, Robert “B.J.” Campbell Jr. and Scott Campbell (Melissa); two stepsons, Nathaniel Bullard (Shu-jia Ma) and Ethan Bullard (Kelly Kerney); four grandchildren, Madeline Davis, Bobby and Daphne Campbell and Avery Bullard; two dogs, Mack and Flow; and two chickens, unnamed.

Bob lived a full life. As a UVA graduate, he was an Air Force veteran and following his service in the Air Force, spent most of his career in construction management.

Bob was a world traveler, storyteller, sailor, artist, wood-worker, chicken farmer, border collie rescuer, and wonderful cook. He retired to Wicomico Church with his wife, Debbie, where they lovingly restored a farmhouse and became active members in the local community and Wicomico Parish Church.

Bob was a devoted husband, an amazing father and great friend. 

Services will be held at the Wicomico Parish Church at a currently undetermined date due to COVID-19. You may contact the family for future details.

Donations in his honor can be made to Blue Ridge Border Collie Rescue or Smith Point Sea Rescue.
