In 2014 the very first post I put on Dawgs Blog was an article about the condition of Glen Campbell, and his battle with Alzheimer’s. Click HERE to see that post.
Then I recently updated his condition: See here
Sadly, but maybe mercifully he passed away on Aug 8th, 2017.
Here is the statement put on the official Glen Campbell Facebook page:
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and legendary singer and guitarist, Glen Travis Campbell, at the age of 81, following his long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
Glen is survived by his wife, Kim Campbell of Nashville, TN; their three children, Cal, Shannon and Ashley; his children from previous marriages, Debby, Kelli, Travis, Kane, and Dillon; ten grandchildren, great- and great-great-grandchildren; sisters Barbara, Sandra, and Jane; and brothers John Wallace “Shorty” and Gerald.
In lieu of flowers, donations for Alzheimer’s research may be made to the Glen Campbell Memorial Fund at BrightFocus Foundation through the donation page at Careliving.org.
A personal statement from Kim Campbell will follow.
The family appreciates your prayers and respect for their privacy at this time.
My best to his family, friends, and loyal followers. (like me)
