Former UGA Alumni Association president passes away

During an otherwise uplifting and relaxing holiday, I was disappointed to hear of the passing of Clifford S. Campbell Jr. (BBA '50). Cliff served as president of the UGA Alumni Association from 1987 to 1989. Although I only had the pleasure of meeting him a few times, he was a kind man and I know he will be missed by many.

Campbell passed away on December 26 after a brief illness. He was born in 1928 in Covington, Ga., and graduated from UGA in 1950. He was a member of Phi Delta Theta and the Gridiron Secret Society, and later served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. In 1954, Campbell married Frances Sinback and they had two children, Clay Campbell (BSA '80) and Dick Stewart Campbell.

Campbell began his banking career in Albany and Atlanta. In 1969, he was transferred to Thomasville to serve as president of the C&S Bank of Thomas County - a position he held until 1989. During that time, he was named Thomasville's Man of the Year, and served as president of the Thomas County Chamber of Commerce, Thomasville YMCA and Thomasville Rotary Club.

Following retirement, Campbell worked for the American Bankers Association, eventually serving as the first board chairman for the Thomasville National Bank. He was a 38-year trustee of the Archbold health care system, including terms as chairman of the Archbold Memorial Hospital and Archbold Medical Center boards of trustees.

My heart goes out to his wife, Frances, and his other friends and family members. He was a great Bulldog.
