Hubert Harold Campbell, Jr. was born on January 15, 1938 in Tulsa, Oklahoma to Hubert and Ruth Campbell. A graduate of Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ, he served as Minister of Music for over 40 years at churches in MS, TX, OK, IL, CA and Kentucky. His youth choirs took mission trips and sang in many parts of the U.S. He was known for his beautiful voice and his moving interpretation of songs.

A general contractor as well, Harold also designed, built and remodeled sanctuaries and church educational/classroom buildings in CA, AZ, NV and Sitka, Alaska. To help churches afford to build, he taught volunteers in congregations to be part of the labor crews. Harold also used his construction expertise and love of people to help change the lives of numerous troubled youth whom he mentored in the construction trade and who became successful contractors.

    I am so sorry and shocked to hear about Harold. My memories of Harold will always be his patience and personal help in teaching me how to read music and ring bells. I consider his help in helping me accomplish learning about music as one of my greatest life memories. I will never forget my first performance on Sunday morning with the bell choir. I was so nervous but Harold was so calm.

    My prayers are with you during this time. Harold and I became friends at Church. He is one of my heroes. I will miss him. I will not be able to attend as I am having some surgery on Thursday. Please accept my heartfelt sympathies.
