Bob Campbell, GM3 1958-59
Final Voyage - May 29, 2015

It saddens me deeply to report the Final Voyage of our shipmate Bob Campbell who was truly instrumental in getting our Perry Association underway. As faith often plays a roll in our lives, its almost unbelievable that two best friends aboard the Perry should become the first shipmates to discover the Perry website within days of each other. This coincidence in 1998 led to Bob inviting Leif and myself to his home to reminisces the good old days aboard the Perry. This special friendship between two old friends that was rekindled after 37 years was almost as exciting for me as for them.

Bob truly loved the Navy and especially our DD-844 as is easily confirmed by his email address Bob may be gone, but he will never be forgotten as he will be remembered at our next Reunion Memorial Service and entered into our Ships Memorial Roster with his fellow shipmates that have also taken their Final Voyage.

We will truly miss your wonderful smile and humor and may you find old friends waiting to greet you and always enjoy fair wind and following seas forevermore.
Smooth sailing mate.

With deepest sympathy to all the Campbell's from your extended Perry family

Condolences can be sent to his wife Laura Campbell
