Jeffrey Lynn Campbell, age 59, of Manhattan, died December 5, 2019, at his residence.

He was born May 17, 1960, in Hastings, Nebraska, the son of Sammy R. and Donna L. (Simon) Campbell. The family moved back to Manhattan in the early 1960’s and Jeff has made Manhattan his home ever since.

He was a carrier for the Manhattan Mercury when he was young, worked at Dillon’s in high school, worked as a printer for Ag Press prior to going to work at Kansas State University as a Printer Specialist where he had worked the past 35 years.

Jeff was in Boy Scouts and played baseball as a youth. He loved to be outdoors and kept himself busy at all times. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, trap shooting, his Brittany dogs, and mowed several yards in his spare time.

Jeff is survived by his parents of Manhattan; his sister Renee Adolph and her husband Alan of Manhattan; a niece Bailey Mixon and her husband Martin and their daughter Ainsley; a nephew Dillon Adolph; one Aunt, Sue Hale; and numerous cousins.
