Barton "Bart" Robert Campbell

December 24, 1940 — July 12, 2016


Barton “Bart” Robert Campbell, age 75, of AuTrain, died Tuesday, July 12, 2016 in AuTrain.  He was born in Munising on December 24, 1940 to the late George Wise and Irene D. Campbell.  Bart grew up in AuTrain, and then joined the United States National Guard.  After being honorably discharged, he moved downstate and began working in the automotive industry.  After a short time of working for Chrysler, Bart started at General Motors.  He worked in the shipping and receiving department at the Tech Center in Warren and retired in 2002 after thirty-four years of service at GM.  Bart then moved back to his hometown, and lived on the same street he grew up on.  He enjoyed hunting, four-wheeling, and making his daily ritual ride around town.  Bart was an Elder of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, and always enjoyed helping set up for tribal dinners.  Bart helped build a number of homes, and was willing to lend a hand to anyone.  He was a very generous and giving person.

Bart is survived by his children – Barton Thomas Campbell of Richmond, MI and Victoria (Larry) Watson of Avoca, MI; grandsons – William Campbell and Daniel (Rachael) Watson; great-grandchildren – Justin, Julian, Karson, and Edward; brother – Gregory Campbell; cousin – Michael “Mickey” (Mary) Tiernan; and many friends.  He was preceded in death by his mother – Irene D. Campbell.
