It is with a heavy heart that I must inform the community that CJ Campbell, who blogs here under the name ulookarmless, passed away this evening at Ventura County Medical Center. I just received the following email from his older son:
Hi Kelley. My father passed away tonight. He spent the day with [his daughter] and [his younger son] and was with me, [my fiance] and his friend [redacted] at the end. He was at peace and will be going to a better place now. Thank you for all your love and support. I will be in touch as arrangements are made.There will, of course, be a proper memorial here at a later date. For now, I'd like to share with you a poem written for CJ by llbear:
Call you now on God your Father
from His High and Holy Station
to welcome home one brave warrior
who has done all he can
to instill honor in this nation.
The trail he traveled is littered with tears
and memories of an imperfect life
Which brought him wisdom he shared
With others looking for answers
While lost in personal strife.
This brave warrior redeemed himself
And at the end of his journey left behind
Legions of those enriched to know him
And honored to remember CJ forever as a Friend
