Friendships are sometimes boundaries you cannot explain. Moments in time that leave lifelong impressions. Vince was a best friend to my dad (lou-dawg) and to my mom. The connections that they had and the stories they told, I will always remember. Not for the substance but for the emotions Vince ignited into anyone who knew him. My parents always spoke amazingly of him and his family. I remember playing with the girls when my brother and I were a tiny tots (Page, Whitney, Dani)... running up and down stairs before bedtime and then going swimming the next day. Sharlene, a beautiful women, you welcomed me into your home in Gatlinburg a few years back with my dad.. You and Vince solidified the warmth and kindness I remember from Vince and was so happy to know you two were so amazing to one another and love each other so much. It was gentle but ever lasting. Thank you. MY thoughts and prayers go out to you Sharlene, Page, Whitney, Dani and close family/friends. He is a great Man, and will never be forgot by anyone who he touched even if for only a minute.

I had no idea that he was in such bad health. You know, Vince was very important to me and played a pivotal role in my life. He was painting shelves at the Goodlettsville Video Warehouse in October 1984, about a month before the grand opening when I walked in and told him that I was going to open my own video store and wanted to manage his store and learn the business. Vince was kind enough to hire me and mentor me. Most people might have discounted me as a nut or a potential competitor, but not Vince. He was very important to my success, which translated into a quality of life for my family for so many years. I’m sad that I never told him how much that meant to me. Please send his family my condolences.



Tom Donaldson Friend for 40 years, this is way we all feel

Vince was always a delight to get a call from: 'Hello Mr.Campbell'...That call took any work related stress away. I was never in a hurry to get off the phone. One of the best compliments that I can give someone is an old saying:'he is the type of man you could leave your wallet with'. Vince was the most trust worthy and honorable persons I have met. We will miss him dearly. Fred & Mary Ann Campbell

Even though I hadn't seen you in so long anytime I heard your name it would make me smile. Thanks for the many laughs we shared I always loved the short (but fun) visits over the last 36 years.
