Guestbook

  1. Mr. Campbell was a kind and gentle man who was greatly loved by his family and friends. He will be missed in this world but I’m happy to know that Andy and his Pa Pipe are able to visit again.

  2. Mr. Campbell was a wonderful neighbor and friend to our family. All my children and grandchildren feel they too have lost a dear friend. My eight year old granddaughter told me not to worry about Mr. Campbell “Because he is in heaven with his family”

  3. He was a great man- kind, gracious, and a wonderful sense of humor. He will be missed by many but I am sure he is resting peacefully with our Lord as we speak.

  4. Your grandfather sounds like a wonderful, loving man. My prayers are with you and your family, Sharon.

  5. Mr. Campbell (who always insisted I call him Louis) gave me my first job in 1962 when he was manager of the Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. warehouse on Lindbergh Road in Atlanta. I worked six summers for him while I went to college and medical school, and since we lived across the road from him, I always rode to work with him, and he always refused to let me pay him any, not even for gas. He was a wonderful conversationalist and told me many interesting tales of the early years of Atlanta and Gwinnett County as we spent many hours on the road together to and from work. He was much like a father to me and always held that summer position (which I desperately needed in those days) open for me without fail. I will never forget his kindness to me, and last time I saw him I prayed with him over his personal situation and his increasing years, which he seemed to appreciate very much. May God rest his soul in peace and comfort his family to the utmost.
