PRICE/WELLINGTON-Our special son, brother and friend, James Allen Campbell, age 57, passed away Dec. 20, 2013 in Price.
He was born June 20, 1956 in East Carbon to Roy Dee Campbell and Iretta Thorpe.
Allen was a kind and loving spirit who loved to lead hymns at church and cheer at basketball games. He loved anything that had to do with cops and fireman. While traveling East on 800 North, many would see Allen directing traffic or cheering on the passersby.

He loved all animals, especially his stuffed dog that he carried everywhere.
Allen loved assisting others and for years he delivered papers for the Sun Advocate. Allen loved everyone and he will be greatly missed by all.
