I put in one of my favorites here See his final recording at bottom of page.
One of my personal favorites Glen Campbell has been moved to a 24hr care facility due to progression of his Alzheimer’s disease.
He reportedly is in the final stage now.
It has been nearly two years since Campbell has performed in public.
However, as a farewell to his music career, Campbell’s record label has released his final studio recording.
It is called “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.” The melody is somber and contemplative, but the lyrics show Campbell’s ability to find irony in his disease.
The result is a beautiful combination of sadness and joy, which ends much too quickly.
Here is the video:
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.
The family appreciates your prayers and respect for their privacy at this time.
