Mr. Wallace Burton Campbell, age 79 years, of Hartsburg, Mo. passed away Wednesday, October 2, 2019 at Heisinger Bluffs surrounded by his family.

Wally was born on January 13, 1940 in Lebanon, Mo. a son of Bennie Burton and Dorcas Louise (Ferguson) Campbell. He was married on December 4, 1960 at Hamlin Memorial Baptist Church in Springfield, Mo. to Barbara Jean Freeman.

Wally graduated from Alton High School and received his Associate’s degree in 1958 from Southwest Baptist College. He furthered his education at Southwest Missouri State University in Springfield and received his Bachelor’s degree in 1961.

Wally was employed for over 37 years with the Missouri Department of Transportation in Jefferson City. He worked with traffic throughout his career and retired in 2000. Wally was also a full-time cattle farmer during these years and spent many morning and nights on the family farm.

He was an active member and deacon at Concord Baptist Church. He also enjoyed sharing his knowledge with the youth at the church as a Royal Ambassadors and Sunday school teacher. Wally volunteered his time as a crew chief supervisor with the World Changers Program, was a member of the Concord Baptist Association’s Building Team and worked with the Missouri Baptist Disaster Relief. He found comfort in serving and helping others.

Wally loved spending time with his family, especially if it meant being around his kids and grandkids. It was an added bonus if that time was spent on the farm or working cattle. His love of family meant that he always put them first in his life. He supported them in all of their passions and encouraged them through all their successes and failures.

Survivors include: his loving wife of 58 years, Barbara Campbell; four children, Bruce Campbell of Hartsburg, Mo., Diann Rivera (Drew) of Jefferson City, Mo., Scott Campbell (Jill) of Hartsburg, Mo. and Brian Campbell (Janelle) of Iberia, Mo.; one sister, Lois Marie Akers (Bill) of Evansville, In.; one brother, James Campbell of Cheyenne, Wy.; eleven grandchildren, Brittney Banks, Whitney Armour (Kevin), Kristin Campbell, Jennifer Pyatt (Jesse), Jared Rivera (Naomi), Jason Rivera (Alex), Caitlin Campbell (fiancé Woodcender Beauplan), Cody Campbell (Kaley), Abby Claypool (Dusty), Tessa Campbell and Michelle Campbell; and two great-grandchildren, Lydia Armour and Little Bit Rivera.

He was preceded in death by his parents and numerous aunts and uncles.

Visitation will be held at Concord Baptist Church from 1:30 until 3:00 pm Sunday, October 6, 2019. A memorial service will follow at 3:00 pm with the Reverend Dr. Monte Shinkle officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to Missouri Baptist Children’s Home, Missouri Baptist Disaster Relief, Gideons International or Vision 3:16.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.

As a former Royal Ambassador (Baptist Boy Scouts) I remember Wally spending and giving his time freely to all us rambunctious young men. Along with the weekly meetings we had numerous camp-outs, hayrides, lock-ins, snow sledding days, or just watching the stars or playing football in the cow pasture. Other than my own father this man had THE most influence in my Christianity and lifelong walk with Jesus. He rarely preached, but led his troop by/with a steady and patient first hand example of how to live and show Christ love through your action/reactions.
I smile when I think about it, Jesus meting Wally at the gates of Heaven saying "Well done my good and faithful servant"!
