Joe Campbell, Voice Of Oneonta For Decades, Goes Silent At 91

Joe Campbell, Voice Of Oneonta

For Decades, Goes Silent At 91

Editor’s Note: Joe Campbell’s son, Joe Jr. sent out this message to friends on the passing of his dad, the voice of Oneonta for decades, on March 6, 2019.  Joseph P. Campbell was born on Aug. 30, 1927, in Moosic, Pa.  A full obituary will follow shortly from the Grummons Funeral Home, which is handling the arrangements.

I want to let you know that my father passed away on Wednesday 3/6/19 at 4:05 pm after hearing  “The Campbells are Coming” on the bagpipes surrounded by family in Bassett Hospital. Dad lived 91½ wonderful years and had his wits about him until the end.

There will be a memorial service to be scheduled at a teacher-friendly time, with so many family members following in his footsteps. We will keep you posted. Thank you for your friendship and support.
