Death of U.S. elder

We were saddened to learn of the recent death of GCI-USA elder John Campbell. Here is an obituary provided by his pastor Bermie Dizon.

John Campbell

Born in 1932 in Edwards, MS, John was the first of three children born to James P. and Edith Campbell. The family moved to Los Angeles in 1943, where John attended Polytechnic High School, lettering in track and field. Upon graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served two tours of duty including in the Korean War. He was awarded the Korean Service Medal (two stars), Presidential Unit Citation Medal, National Defense Service Medal and Navy Good Conduct Medal. He worked as an operating engineer for most of his life, retiring in 1997.

In 1955, John married Kathryn Moore. They had two daughters, Sharon Mason and Renee Hall. In 1976, John married Jean Willis. John joined WCG (now GCI) in 1968. He served faithfully in the Los Angeles congregation as a deacon and then an elder. He died on December 13, 2017. He will be greatly missed.

  1. Dear Jean, Sharon and Renee,

    At a time marked by the joy connected to celebrating Christ’s birth we are also soberly reminded that life on this side of eternity also involves pain and deep sadness. We pray that your heavy hearts may be comforted and lifted up by our heavenly Father. John is now in God’s loving arms awaiting the glorious resurrection.

    Peace be to you,
    Santiago and Elke

  2. Dear Jean, we are sorry our lives are temporarily deprived of one of the kindest men I ever knew. We rejoice in the reunion with John that is ahead. It was always a treat to hang out with John during the Connecting & Bonding Conferences. He will not be forgotten. God bless you during this major adjustment time. JR & HBR
