Bro. Campbell was born December 12, 1940, in Pineville, LA. Johnny was the son of the late Austin and Beatrice Couvillion Campbell. He is preceded in death by grandparents, John and Belle Couvillion; brother, John Campbell; sister, Boni Tassler; grandchildren, Kelli Campbell and Dwayne Villarreal.
In September 1968 a little Cajun boy from Louisiana made his way to the great state of Tennessee. Now he knew what an arrest warrant was but when he walked up under that big tent that night on September 22, the blessed Holy Spirit of God arrested him for the murder of his son, Jesus Christ. He saved his soul and set a fire in his soul that lasted until God took him home to rest Sunday night.
He was survived by loving wife of 47 years, Vera Carleen Vaughn Campbell; sons, Don Campbell of Texas, Mike Campbell of Shelbyville, Keith Etheridge of Georgia, Glenn (Tammy) Etheridge of Georgia and Sidney (Jackie) Etheridge of Florida; daughters, Gayla Guidry of Louisiana, Shelia (J.B.) Brabham of South Carolina, Shirley (Mike) Newman of Georgua, and Vicky Collins of Shelbyville; along with 22 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.
