Clayton Sinclair Campbell, a longtime resident of Longview, died June 24, 2011, at St. John Medical Center.

He was born June 12, 1924, in Bemidji, Minn., to Foster and Helen (Sinclair) Campbell. He graduated in 1942 from Minnesota’s Hibbing High School, and entered the Army Air Corps.

Clay moved to the Northwest in 1955, and retired from the Longview Post Office after many years as a letter carrier. Clay was fun-loving, generous, and a loyal and constant friend.

He was a member of the National Association of Retired Federal Employees (NARFE), Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and the American Red Cross. He was a former officer in Toastmasters and a deacon at Longview Presbyterian Church. Clay loved his family. He enjoyed gardening, fishing, sports and pinochle. He loved music and the arts. He was a Babe Ruth coach and a cub master.

Clay is survived by his wife, Sharon Campbell at home; his former wife and the mother of his children, Ruth Campbell of Kelso; a daughter, Kathleen Campbell of Castle Rock; three sons, Jeff Campbell of Martinez, Calif., and Tom Campbell and Dan Campbell, both of Portland; two stepsons and their spouses, Bart and Marge Andrews, and Bruce and Patty Andrews, all of Longview; a stepdaughter, Beth Webb of Longview; 14 grandchildren; and 17 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by a daughter, Patty Mackey; and two brothers, Phil and Dan.

A memorial service is planned for 11 a.m. July 9 at Longview Presbyterian Church with Pastor Harlan Gilliland officiating.
