It is with great sadness that
we announce that former Geology major Benjamin
Campbell passed away this past Friday morning in
Oklahoma. Ben was an energetic, creative
presence in the department. He earned one of the
alltime highest scores on the ACAT and did some
great research on metal ores associated with the
Magnet Cove carbonatite. He was the first student
here, during my time, who really understood and used
reflected light microscopy in his work.
Ben married his sweetheart Amy
last Fall – and they had the COOLEST wedding cake
ever!He was looking forward to pursuing a M.S. in
the fall at University of Kentucky.
Funeral services for Benjamin
Campbell will be at Cone Funeral Home, 1510 Campbell
Lane, Bowling Green, KY.
Visitation Wed 1-8pm, and Thurs 9am-2pm with service
to follow at 2pm.
In lieu of flowers, donations
can be made to "Benjamin Campbell Memorial Fund" at
Amy is hoping for stories,
pictures, remembrances… of Ben – if you have these
to contribute, please send them to me and I’ll pass
