Timothy G. Campbell, 58, South Whitley, passed away at 10:35 p.m. Tuesday, May 26, 2020, in Lutheran Hospital, Fort Wayne.
Timothy was born Sept. 5, 1961, in Dyersburg, Tenn. to Ronnie and Mildred (Leary) Campbell.
After graduating from trade school in 1980, Tim moved to Pierceton, and began working as a machinist. Here, he met and married the love of his life, Lizzie J. Burkett, on April 4, 1981.
Tim went on to serve the Pierceton community as a volunteer firefighter and as an assistant chief.
An avid racing fan, Tim spent many nights at racetracks watching mud fly and eating dusty hamburgers with his buddy/brother-in-law, Gene Burkett. Tim’s greatest joy was watching his grandbabies play softball and play in the marching band.
Timothy is survived by his wife, Lizzie Campbell, South Whitley; daughters: Rachael (Chad) Clark, South Whitley, Rebekah (Matt) Ewald, Garrett; son, Jacob (Courtney) Campbell, South Whitley; father, Ronnie Campbell, Sikeston, Mo.; brother, Kevin (Dr. Laurel ) Campbell, Sikeston, Mo; his beloved “6 pack” Wyatt and Magdalynn Clark, Adelynn and Abygael Ewald, Korbyn and Eli Campbell, along with a host of nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.
The family will hold a memorial service later this summer at Reelfoot Lake in Tennessee.
McHatton-Sadler Funeral Chapel, Warsaw, is in charge of arrangements.
