Gregory Robert Campbell - 11-19-1954 to 7-31-2020. On July 31st, Greg Campbell, a lifelong Amador County resident gave in to his long fight with pancreatic cancer and died peacefully. One of Ten cousins who were all raised in Amador County, Greg spent his childhood summers with his cousins playing in Grandpa Roy and Grandma Mabel Harmons backyard or walking along the backroads between Sutter Creek and Amador City.
Greg was a 1972 graduate of Amador High School and upon graduation began a 40+ year career in the carpentry trades; a skill acquired from his work with his father from the time he could bend a nail straight, one which made him respected by all who worked alongside him due to his finish carpentry skills. Greg was also a huge auto racing fan, another lifelong love acquired from his father, who took Greg and his brother to the racetrack to watch him race his Fords almost every weekend during his childhood summers.
Greg was preceded in death by his Father Ron Campbell and his mother Beverly Campbell. He is survived by his older brother Glenn Campbell (Jenny) of Melstone, MT, his sister Kim (Steve) of Dayton, NV, and various nieces, nephews, and cousins spread throughout Amador County.
At Greg’s request there will be no services. Donations can be made in Greg’s name in lieu of flowers to the Amador Hospice. A special thanks needs to go to Jessie Campbell for her diligent work on Greg’s behalf as his health advocate and the person who helped arrange most of his care these last 6 months.
If friends could be counted as money, then Greg would be considered one of the wealthiest men in Amador County, for he had a lot of them. Somewhere, we as a family just hope that Greg is finally enjoying that slice of Bart’s Pie from Mel’s that he kept dreaming of these last several months. We all love you Greg.
