Richard Allen Campbell

Richard Allen (Rick) Campbell passed away October 17, 2019 in Pueblo, CO after a lengthy illness.  He was born November 27, 1942 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  He graduated high school there and enlisted in the Navy, where he became a corpsman and served 8 years. 

Richard was a veteran of the Vietnam conflict, serving with honor and distinction with the First Battalion, Fourth Marines, Third Marine Division, Charlie Company, as part of Operation Robin near Khe Sanh in Quan Tri Province.  Rick was wounded there on June 6, 1968.  He received the Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Purple Heart, and Bronze Star Medal.  The discipline and patriotism he learned in the Navy and Marines never left him, as friends and family will attest. 

After recovering from his injuries, he attended Oklahoma University for a time, then Oklahoma Baptist University graduating in 1978 with a Health Sciences degree.  He worked at several hospitals in Oklahoma before becoming Administrator of Frederick Memorial Hospital Nursing Center, Director of Radiology, Lab, and Risk Management until retiring from there in June 2004.  He then moved to Del Norte, Colorado and spent 4 years working in radiology at Rio Grande Hospital until 2008. 

Rick loved riding his Harley Davidson trike, he loved camping and hiking in the mountains, he loved his cats and dog, he loved watching OU football, and he loved all his family very much.  He lived a full and amazing life and will be greatly missed. 

Rick is survived by his loving wife Angelia, his sons Robert Allen (Deann) Campbell, Eric Lee (Ninet) Campbell, stepchildren Nick (Sara) Treadwell and Lauren Treadwell, his brother Earl Lee (Paula) Webb, sisters Wanda May Lewallen, Billie Joyce (Ron) Dodson, and Marilou (Mike) Myrick, grandchildren Kayla Campbell and Eric Nathaniel Campbell, numerous nephews and nieces and countless family and friends.
