Richard D. Campbell, “The Mayor,” 76, of Homer City, went home to be with his Lord on Monday, Jan. 13, 2020, surrounded by those he loved and who loved him dearly too.
He was preceded in death by his parents, George “Dewey” and Dorothy Campbell, as well as siblings Beatrice “Pat,” Kathleen “Kate,” William “Sonny,” Eleanor “Margaret,” and George “Jr.”
He is survived by his loving wife of over 51 years, Sylvia Helen (Kreashko), who he affectionately called “Lovey.” One of his favorite things to do was sit on the glider and hold hands with Lovey.
He is also survived by children: Helen Christine and husband Jimmy; Amy; Douglas and wife Andrea; Jennifer “Winnie” and husband, Dave; Amanda “Mandy” and husband, Kevin; and Sara “Princess”; and grandchildren: Julia, James, Chelsianna, Rebecca, Eli, Jack, Johnny and Lukey.
These folks represent his finest accomplishments in life. He taught them how to love with all your heart, compassion and integrity.
He is also survived by a sister, Janet Huffman, who he could always rely on to share a smile and bring happiness.
He will always be in our hearts and he shared so much love it will always be felt. He was also known for his heartfelt advice or, if necessary, a lecture. Both are fondly remembered by many.
Friends will be received from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Jon A. Meese Funeral Home, Seward.
Funeral services will be held 11 a.m. Thursday at St. Peter and Paul Orthodox Church, Vintondale, with the Rev. Grigori Tsjouman officiating.
Interment will be in Armagh Cemetery. Everyone attending is asked to meet at the church on Thursday.
