Dustin Ray Campbell, 35, passed away on Thursday, Nov. 11, 2021.
Dustin loved his family, his friends, his fur babies, and Tennessee very much. Those who knew him well knew that he was in the process of moving back home and he was so excited that he was planning to be back home before Christmas. He was a huge fan of the UT Vols and San Francisco 49er’s, and he loved his hometown and was so looking forward to seeing these mountains again. He loved playing football, listening to his music, his tattoos, swimming, his video games, and snowboarding with his best friend, James.
Dustin was preceded in death by his mother, Patsy Faye Callicott; grandmothers, Agnes Queenie Campbell and Flora Solomon; grandfathers, Frank Campbell, James Reagan and Homer Williams; great-grandfather, Parlon Ogle; as well as uncles, Eddie Bulger, Johnny Campbell and Dale Lowe; aunt, Jeannie Campbell; cousins, Brianna Callicott, Allen “Bubba” Gibson, Jessie Henry, Jason Henry, and Donnie Ray Floyd and several other family members.
Dustin is survived by his parents, Billy Ray and Angie Campbell; sisters and brothers-in-law, Sonya Carpenter, Tiffany and Robbie Houser, Brianna Campbell; grandmother, Lena Reagan, grandfather Jim Solomon. In addition, he is survived by his aunts and uncles Allen Callicott, Sr. and wife Kaice, Kathryn Buryanek, Tonya and Paul Jordan, Shannon Sheppard, Wayne and Claudette Reagan, Jeanine Hurst, Wilma and JE Gibson, Brenda and Donnie Floyd, Joyce Lowe; nieces and nephews, Brooklyn Carpenter, Matthew Carpenter, Joseph Ray Houser, Emilee Houser, Hailey Houser, BrayDavid Houser, Braylen Houser, Ebony Houser as well as his cousins William Callicott, Jr., Kendra Callicott, Kyleigh Callicott, Kayla Stimson, Taylor Adcock, Rodney Gibson, Tisha Reed, Stephen Floyd, Carrie Riggs, Tabitha Campbell, Angel Ramsey, Poppy Duckworth, Stacey Campbell, Gator Way, Jacob Lee, Jenna Jordan, Hunter Jordan, plus many others.
Dustin is also survived by his lifetime best friend and brother James Weatherford; Dustin’s special friends Mark Boyles and Dustin’s work crew at Mark’s Landscaping in Ridgeland, South Carolina and Dustin’s beloved fur babies Dolce and Baby.
Instead of everyone buying a lot of flowers, in Dustin’s honor, the family would like to request that you reach out into the community this holiday season, find a family that’s in desperate need and help them. Buying someone’s groceries or paying their electric bill could help them a lot. Dustin had an amazing heart, and has always helped others his entire life, and we know by you helping someone who is in desperate need, in Dustin’s honor, would sure make him smile.
Dustin will remain with us forever, he will watch over us, and in our eyes, he did not leave us. Instead, he “just changed his address” and we will see him again.
The family will receive friends 4-7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 22 at Atchley Funeral Home, Sevierville. Rev. Dallas Moore and Rev. Kevin Treadaway will officiate. Funeral service will be held 12 noon Tuesday, Nov. 23 in the West Chapel of Atchley Funeral Home. Graveside service and interment will follow in Smoky Mountain Memory Gardens, Pigeon Forge.
