    We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of “Mr. “Silver Voice” Bob Campbell. As an army veteran, he embodied courage, honor, and sacrifice, leaving an indelible mark on those they served alongside and the nation they bravely defended.

    At CDCE VA Bedford events we always convinced him to sing a tune or two! “It had to be you” was a crowd favorite!

    His unwavering dedication to duty and service will forever be remembered, and his legacy will continue to inspire generations to come. In this time of profound loss, may you find solace in the memories shared and the knowledge that their contribution to our country will never be forgotten.

    Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

    With deepest sympathy,
    The CDCE/ VA Bedford Team
