Gary Campbell

My name is Gary Campbell. My wife, Chasity, and I met during our college days in Indiana while attending a weekend retreat. We became best friends during those years, got married a year after graduation, and set up our home in Oakland County, Michigan – not far from where I was raised. After four years of living in Waterford, we moved our 3 young kids to Grand Blanc where we found our dream home, and have been living there ever since.  The sledding hill in our back yard and the big bedrooms upstairs were such that we had to share it with more children, so over the next few years we decided to have three more kids to round out our family. Of all the blessings in our life, Chasity and I are most proud of our 6 children – Joey, Drew, Trent, Sara, Brody, and Catie!  Some have grown up and moved out already and the rest aren’t far behind, but we have a lifetime of memories that we built throughout that dream home of ours.
