ANNOUNCEMENTS

Guy Earl Campbell

October 15, 1935-June 4, 2020

He wasn't as tall as he wanted to be. He was a dapper dresser, a fantastic dancer, and very handsome. He loved his family, friends, trucking, the Army, baseball, golf, hunting, snow skiing, Masonic Lodge, Bible study group, and his Kappa Sig brothers from U of A Fayetteville. Guy had a good voice and enjoyed singing in the choir at St. James Methodist during his early membership there.  

Guy Earl Campbell left this earth with dignity and on his terms on June 4, 2020.

Guy was born to adoring parents, Earl and Jewell Campbell on October 15, 1935. His father left far too early in his life, and Guy took excellent care of his mother for the remainder of her long life. He is survived by his equally good dancer sister Sylvia Disheroon of Hot Springs, nephew Copeland Disheroon (Kristi) of Puerto Rico, and grandnephew Dylan Disheroon and grandniece Hannah Leigh Disheroon of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Guy is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Mary Ann, her son John Campbell (Jennifer) and their children Whitney and Walker of Germantown, Tennessee. Guy and Mary Ann shared an exchange student son Mario Arbelaez from Colombia who survives Guy along with his wife Lucero and children Sebastian and Catalina of Land O' Lakes, Florida.

Greg Campbell survives his dad. Greg came with the height Guy always desired, and as Guy put it, "He's everything I always wanted to be." Guy is also survived by Greg's wife Cheryl, his grandson Geoffrey (Amanda), great-grandson Grayson and great-granddaughter Sutton. Granddaughter Whitney Campbell also survives Guy. Her sharp wit and an innate ability to counter Guy's zingers could melt him.  

Greg and Geoffrey are the third and fourth generations in the family business which Earl Campbell started. Arkansas Trailer Manufacturing Co. in Little Rock has branches in Jonesboro, Springdale, and Fort Smith. Guy, Greg and Geoffrey worked together five days a week as a strong team until Guy got sick in December. The caring that Guy has been giving out for years came back to him from all three sons and their families during the past six months. 

Some of Army Captain Campbell's accomplishments include being the youngest Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Arkansas Trucking Association and only the second allied member to hold that position in its history.  

Truckers have always been Guy's friends. He and these business friends hunted together all over the world, took multiple cruises with spouses, and partied hard together. 

Guy hit a hole-in-one on the Pleasant Valley Country Club golf course. He treasured his long friendship with Coach Lou Holtz who arranged for Guy to golf at the Shadow Creek course in Las Vegas.  

Greg, Geoffrey, and particularly young Grayson possess outstanding baseball talent. Guy and Mary Ann met at Ray Winder Field where Guy served on the Board of the Arkansas Travelers Baseball Club. He served as American Legion Baseball Commissioner for three years after Greg had completed his Legion Play. Guy helped the Legion put their finances back on solid ground and Arkansas Trailer Manufacturing. Co. sponsored a Little League or Babe Ruth League baseball team for twenty years. 

Guy served on the Boards of Union National Bank, the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce, the First Methodist Church, the Visiting Nurses Association as well as several others. He and Mary Ann spent the night in the Lincoln Bedroom at the White House as the guests of President Bill and Hillary Clinton. They were early supporters before Bill ran for Arkansas Attorney General.  

Raising money for causes in which he believed was a joy for Guy. Serving on the Arkansas State Police Foundation Board was a delightful experience because he not only helped raise money for a new training track, he got to ride with State Troopers on the old track as they demonstrated their high-speed maneuvers.  

Guy's family is forever grateful for the outstanding services of the Arkansas Heart Hospital, the many doctors who took a personal interest in Guy's medical issues, the dedicated nurses, aides, and the leadership of Dr. C.D. Williams. We also appreciate his PCP Dr. Jeanne Wei of UAMS, and Dr. Bernard Morrey of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

In lieu of flowers, please consider memorial gifts to any of the hospitals listed above, St. James Methodist Church or the charity of your choice.
