Bruce fell in love with the North Carolina coast and eventually moved to Wilmington, NC where he started his landscape business, Campbell Landscape Management. He was passionate about the outdoors and earned his state fertilization and pesticide license to bring the best knowledge and expertise to his clients. Bruce was the godfather to his nephew, Luke Campbell, and enjoyed every second spent with all of his beloved nieces and nephews.
