SCANISTEO/MULBERRY, Fla. - Melvin F. Campbell, 66 years old, entered into rest on Friday (January 14, 2005) at his home in Mulberry, Fla. following a long illness.

The early part of Melvin's life was spent in Canisteo, where he graduated from Canisteo Central School, class of 1956. He followed in his father's footsteps and went to work for the railroad. He worked for the Erie and Erie-Lackawanna railroads and retired from the Norfolk & Southern Railroad as a conductor in October of 2000.
