It is with extreme sadness that we inform you of the passing of an extraordinary gentleman, brother, friend, and colleague, Ronald L. Campbell PDD, Exalted Ruler, who passed away on Friday, August 20, 2021, at Johnson Memorial Hospital. He was 82.
Ronnie, affectionately known as “Soupy,” lived and breathed for the Elks. A Life Member and 8-time Exalted Ruler of Enfield Elks Lodge 2222, he also served as District Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler for the central district of the state. He participated in and chaired many events at our lodge, and held many officer and committee positions here.
Ron was a proud veteran, having served our country during the Vietnam War as a U.S. Navy helicopter pilot.

Ron’s friends at Enfield Elks Lodge 2222 would like to give him a send-off worthy of a truly remarkable Elk brother. We invite you to join us Monday, August 30, at Browne Memorial Funeral Chapels. The Elks ritual will be conducted at 10:30 a.m., followed by a brief religious service at 11:00 a.m. Interment with military honors will follow at the Hazardville Cemetery on Elm St. We encourage you to further celebrate Ronnie’s life by joining us for a luncheon at the Enfield Elks Lodge at 138 North Maple St. following completion of the services.
