Dave Campbell, BHS Class 1965, Passed Away Today
From George Colvin, BHS '65 to Cathy Nicholls Coyle, BHS '67
Cathy did you or John know Dave Campbell? He was in the class of '65 but did not graduate with us because he moved away mid year. His Father was the Pastor of the Presbyterian Church across from BHS until they moved. Dave passed away this morning of a heart attack.

So sad to hear that. I found this photo in the 1963 Ceralbus. You guys would have been in the 10th grade. Couldn't find his photo in the 1964 or 1965 Ceralbuses... Let me know if they are planning services in the area so that we can post it.

I just talked to Jennifer Todd. Yes, I was correct that Jay Campbell was the founding pastor of Bethany Presbyterian at Glenoaks and Tulare. She was sorry to hear that his son passed away today. She isn't sure if Jay is still living or not. As said earlier, if he has died it is within the last four years from when I saw him in October of 2007 at the dedication service for Calvary Chapel Burbank who now owns the former Bethany Presbyterian property. At that time his wife was still living, too. They both looked great, even for people younger than they actually were. I think Jay was around 96 at that time. He preached a short message, along with his remarks for Calvary Chapel's dedication! Possibly Dave was with them that evening, since I remember some of their family was with them and were introduced. In 2007 Jay and his wife lived in Orange County, I think Huntington Beach maybe. I believe Bethany Presbyterian was founded and built about 1948. So, if Jay Campbell left there in 1964 or 1965 he was the pastor at Bethany for 16 or 17 years.
