April 22, 1936 – August 8, 2017
American singer, guitarist, songwriter, television host, actor and Grammy-award winner Glen Campbell passed away in August 2017 after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.
Glen, his wife Kim, and their three children courageously went public with his diagnosis and invited filmmakers to document Glen's Goodbye Tour and inevitable decline, resulting in the award-winning documentary "Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me." The film helped break the stigma of an Alzheimer's diagnosis and continues to provide hope and comfort to families facing the same challenges.
Determined to continue Glen's quest to educate the world about Alzheimer's disease, Kim Campbell has made it her personal mission to improve the quality of life for people with dementia and their caregivers by launching CareLiving.org, a website and social movement designed to inspire, encourage and empower caregivers to care for themselves while caring for others.
Glen's daughter, Ashley Campbell, sang "Remembering," an original song she wrote for her father, at the 2016 Part the Cloud Gala. Glen Campbell is survived by his wife, Kim Campbell; their three children, Cal, Shannon and Ashley; his children from previous marriages, Debby, Kelli, Travis, Kane and Dillon, and ten grandchildren.
