Bobby “Bob” Joe Campbell, age 64 of Norman passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, October 27, 2015 at Noman Health Plex. Bob was born September 12, 1951 in Purcell, Oklahoma, to Freddie Joe Campbell and Anne Marie (Jefferies) Campbell. Bob grew up in Norman and graduated from Norman High School in 1969. He attended the University of Oklahoma and began his working career in the Student Union. He then worked in the University Book Store for 15 years and his current job for 15 years as a Student Services Assistant in the Bursar’s Office. Bob enjoyed with his family and friends jokes, politics, stories, and OU football. He was a 30+year football ticket holder and never missed an OU/Texas game. To be around other OU sports, he worked the On Call Booth at various sporting events. He loved working in the Bursar’s Office and knowing so many OY employees, who became friends. He enjoyed being head chef at the annual Bursar Office cook out. He loved to travel with Jeanne, his lifelong companion, cruising to Hawaii, Panama Canal, and Alaska and road trips to various parts of the U.S. and Canada. He had a soft spot for children and animals, particularly his dogs Gracie, Lucy, Tucker, and his first and favorite dog, Barney.

He was preceded in death by: Parents, Fred and Marie Campbell; Sister, Karen K. Desmond; Grandparents and His beloved dog, Barney, who I hope met Bobby at the gates of heaven.

He is survived by: His companion, Jeanne Turpin of the home in Norman; Jeanne’s brother, Bill Lindahl of MWC; Brother-in-law, Brian Desmond and wife Pam of Rockwall, TX; Three uncles, Billy Campbell and wife Amelia of Norman, Larry Campbell and wife Sandy of Norman, Dickie Campbell and wife Judy of South Carolina; Two aunts, Gloria Adkins and husband Don of Norman, Sue Brown and husband Bob of Norman; Many cousins and a host of other relatives and friends; He is also survived by his closest friends, Gracie, Lucy and Tucker.

As his companion for life, I will miss Bobby and the fun and life we shared together. He was the kindest, sweetest, and most sincere person. He and I had a wonderful friendship and deep love for one another that I will miss. I hope he is in a peaceful place and is with his family members and Barney.
