Gordon D. Campbell, There will be one less funny fellow telling stories at the kitchen table. Lymphoma may have claimed his life at 87, but laughter is his lasting legacy. This “all around nice guy” grew from a grinning red-headed boy born in New Albany, IN to serve in the Air Force and then settle down as an optician at Monfried Optical in Lexington, KY with his wife, Betty. They joyously adopted their daughter, Pam, and Gordon raised her with the motto, “Go to college and be sure to get a job!” Widowed in 1976, he rediscovered his joy in flying by owning a Cessna. He started his own business, Southland Optical.
