Holmes Campbell, the son of Oscar and Cora Watson Campbell, was born and raised at Harmony, Arkansas. He met and married his wife, Eudah, in 1939. They had been married for almost 51 years when he passed away. Holmes and Eudah were the proud parents of two daughters.
Holmes was a truck driver by trade. With over 30 years of driving, he never had an accident. He loved big trucks, especially red ones. He loved traveling the highways and byways, and always looked for opportunities to take his family along on the trip with him. If the entire family couldn't go, then he'd take the ones that could go.
Everyone loved the stories Holmes told of his travels. He told about the people he'd met along the way; the weather phenomenon he'd endured; the severe storms, the icy conditions, the blizzards, the heat; the accidents he "just missed being involved in" by stopping for that piece of pie or cup of coffee. His tales were not only true, but they were quite interesting.
Holmes was also known for his signature "uniform" - a white shirt worn with a pair of blue and white stripped overalls.
Listening to live gospel music was Holmes favorite pass time. He managed to find a music convention somewhere every weekend in which to take his family. If there were no conventions in Arkansas, then he'd find one in a neighboring state. The weekend was family time for Holmes, and nothing was more important to him. He was totally dedicated to his wife and daughters.
Not only was he dedicated to his immediate family, he was dedicated to his mother-in-law, Lizzie, as well. She lived with Holmes and Eudah in her later years. Lizzie loved to fish and she would dig fish bait early in the day while Holmes was at work. Then when he came home in the early afternoon, she'd get him to take her fishing. Holmes and Lizzie made quite a pair on the creek "wetting a hook" as they called it. Throw in the dog, who was always ready to go with them once he saw the fishing poles, and it made for a perfect fishing trip.
