On Friday evening, May 21, Ted Alexander Campbell went to be with the Lord and reunite with his family.
Born in Dothan, AL, to John Neel Campbell, Jr. and Ruby Everett Campbell on December 20, 1949, Ted spent his early childhood in Chipley, FL, and the rest of his formative years in Bartow, FL. In 1988, he moved back to Chipley and resided there until his passing.
Ted took pride in his Scottish heritage and his family’s history, being the 7th generation of his family to call Washington County home. He often referred to northwest Florida as “The land flowing with milk and honey.” He loved to explore the great outdoors, whether fishing, hunting or diving. He was a beloved and generous member of his community and never met a stranger. Ted was always quick to share a story about his life and those he loved, or lend a helping hand.
Ted is preceded in death by his parents, Neel and Ruby. He is survived by his beloved daughters and grandchildren: Tara Campbell Yancey (Will), Henry (15), Luke (13), Mitchell (10), and Amber Campbell Church, Simon (18), Sadie (16), and Josephine (13), his sister and brother-in-law, Sarah Robinson (Roger), their daughters and grandsons: Kari Robinson Bell, Jackson (13), and Lacey Sanders (Colin) and Lucas (3), and many dear cousins and friends.
His funeral will be held at 11:00 am on Friday, May 28, at the First Presbyterian Church, 658 5th St. in Chipley with Obert Funeral Home directing. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be sent to the First Presbyterian Church in Chipley.
