Memories Timeline


  1. Chuck was a wonderful man that I had the honor in caring for. He always had a smile for me no matter how good/bad the day was going. His smile would light up the room. I will truly miss our conversations, laughs and that one time of tears. May you find peace and eternal happiness being back in the arms of all your loved ones. RIP my dear friend. My condolences to his family.

  2. Chuck Campbell was one of Colorado’s most respected journalists and I am grateful that I got to know Chuck and work with him over the course of many years of political campaigns. My sympathy to the Campbell family.

  3. I first met Charles when he was in my 7th grade homeroom class at Keating in 1954. We produced an ‘Ed Sullivan’ type of show for which we lip-synced songs of various artists. Charles was Ed Sullivan, and I can’t help but think that, even back then, it was foretelling of the leader he would always be. I have followed his career with the Star Journal/Pueblo Chieftain through the years and know that he was well respected throughout the community. My husband and I send our condolences to his family.


  4. Our condolences to Chuck’s family. We had many great years working with Chuck and always admired his passion and work for Pueblo. We are grateful for the many years of his support and friendship. Jeff Shaw and the PEDCO staff.
