Posted By Hall-Wynne On February 23, 2015 @ 9:22 am In Obituaries,Oxford | 10 Comments

Colin Reid Campbell, Jr., died February 20, 2015 at Universal Health Care. He was a native of Columbus, GA and the son of the late Colin Reid Campbell, Sr. and Margaret Perry Campbell.
Colin was a member of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church. A graduate of Grady School of Journalism/University of Georgia, he began his career as a television director at the Maryland Center for Public Broadcasting, during which time he won an Emmy for children’s program, Book, Look and Listen. He moved to commercial television as news director for WSM-TV in Nashville, TN. In 1978, he left television to work in corporate communication for the Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA) in Pittsburgh, PA. Colin left the corporate world to become an independent video producer with a diversity of work that included employee training films for Exxon Mobil and the 250th Anniversary Program for the University of Pennsylvania. After retirement he discovered joy in training Border Collies and competing in both sheep and cattle herding trials. He and his beloved dog, Scout, qualified in 2002 for the National Sheepdog finals and qualified three years running for the Nation Cattledog Finals.
Colin loved to laugh and make up sill songs. A truly caring person; he was a friend to all creatures and always ready to lend a hand when someone needed help.
Memorial service will be conducted at 2:00 PM on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church by Rev. James L. Pahl, Jr. The family will receive friends after the service in the Parrish Hall of the church.
Surviving is his wife, Marlene Evans Campbell; a sister Maria Bouchelle Campbell of Birmingham, AL.
In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to the Human Society of the United States, Dept. Memorial Donations, 2100 L Street NW, Washington, DC 20037.

Colin was always a happy guy and fun to be around, and he was the first to offer to pitch in and help at any event. I hope he’s rounding up sheep today with his beloved Mick.

Knew your husband from sheep herding. He was helpful and kind.
Wishing your heart gentleness.

Colin was always a happy face and a helping hand at sheepdog trials. Those of us who knew him in that capacity will always remember his love for his dogs and the fun he had with competition. Godspeed Colin. Marti, I am very sorry for your loss.

I only met Colin a few times, at sheepdog trials. I remember him as warm, friendly, helpful, generous, and humorous. He will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear of Colin’s passing. He was such a kind man and a true gentleman. I had the good fortune of meeting him through Border Collie’s in the early 2000’s and have never forgotten how he made me laugh.

Me deepest condolences on your loss.

Hey Marti.


I just found out this morning about Colin. My heart is breaking for you, though I’m sure he’s in a better place now.

You know what he has meant to me over the years – I hate that life has gotten in the way of me getting out to your place like I used to. But Colin was my first agility friend, his friendship made us become friends, he gave me a taste of the stockdog world, and was just a great overall fun loving guy.

I will always remember him from the “good ol days” and those amazing days out on the farm. And I will never forget that your farm was one of the very last places I ever took Curry – I will be indebted to Colin forever for that last day of happiness for my best boy.

I will always think of Colin with a happy heart. RIP Colin, you will be greatly missed.

And prayers to you, Marti.

Pam Christian
