Jerry Campbell Obituary

A sudden bolt of light traveled from earth to heaven on Wednesday, December 27, 2023 when Jerry W. Campbell left his earthly home for heaven and into the arms of God and his loving Mother. 

Jerry passed away on December 27, 2023 at Geisinger Medical Center from ventricular fibrulation which caused respiratory arrest after suffering an episode on Friday, December 22, 2023. 

Jerry was born on October 24, 1954 at Sunbury Community Hospital to his loving parents Don L. Campbell and Nancy Glace Campbell, both of whom predeceased him.

On July 6, 1974 Jerry married Karen Lynn Wolfe at the First Presbyterian Church of Sunbury.  His death breaks a 49 year 6 month long and loving marital union which started at age 14. 

Jerry is survived by four brothers, Don Campbell, Jr. (Cheryl) of New Columbia; Rodney (Rocky) Campbell (Brenda) and Rusty Campbell (Tonna) all of Herndon and Dennis Campbell (Mathlene) of Shamokin; six sisters, Linda Smith of Sunbury, Cindy Miller (Duane) of Trevorton, Tammy Lenig (Timothy) of Shamokin, Gay Campbell of Herndon, Jodi Campbell (Norman) of Selinsgrove and Joy Renn of Sunbury, his step father, Dale Straub of Sunbury, brother-in-law Randy Wolfe (Connie) of Klingerstown and sister-in-law Sharon Wolfe and companion Monroe of Sunbury.  Jerry is also survived at last count by 78 nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews along with many aunts, uncles and cousins too numerous to count.  In addition to his parents and grandparents Jerry was preceded in death by his mother and father-in-law, Albert and Mary Wolfe, brothers-in-law Rodney Renn, Joe Dillon and Craig Smith. He is also survived by his fur children, Buster the Beagle and Henry the Tom Cat, who were his constant retirement companions.

Jerry was retired from Silvertip Incorporated.  He was a member of Selinsgrove Moose Lodge 1173 of Selinsgrove, Free & Accepted Masons Lodge of Herndon, Alvin E. Long VFW Post 2024 of Herndon, Shamokin Beagle Club of Lower Augusta Township and life member of the Herndon Fire Company.

Jerry was a religious man who firmly believed that we will all see each other again in heaven.  He enjoyed the Campbell reunions each Labor Day to visit with his Campbell relatives.  He loved his brothers and sisters and their children and Karen's family immensly.  Family meant everything to him.  He enjoyed going to the casinos, bowling, hunting, fishing and running his dog Buster at the Shamokin Beagle Club. Jerry had an extensive list of friends and was the type of man who could talk to strangers and make a new lifelong friend.  Karen always said he had a gift of gab and should have been a politician.

Memorial contributions in loving memory of Jerry may be made to Shamokin Beagle Club, 505 Hallowing Run Road, Sunbury, PA 17801.

There will be no services at this time and a celebration of his life will be held in the Spring, Jerry's favorite time of the year as he watched everything come alive again after the winter blahs.

The story of our lives together were written moment by moment in how we loved each other, in the day-to-day things we shared and in the many ways Jerry touched each of our lives.  May the memories of our connection to Jerry stay with us always.  A hole has been left in my heart that will never be healed.
