Talking about hearts, he’s literally won four females heart throughout his lifetime. Yes, this means that he got married to four different wives, well but at the different times.
His widowed wife is Kimberly Woolen who is extremely saddened by his husband’s death. She even wrote a letter to her deceased husband which I will be showing you guys later. Keep on reading if you want to know more about all if the singer’s wives.
Glen got married for the first time at the age of 17, with Diane Kirk who was just 15. They got married in the year 1954 and at the same time, Diane was pregnant as well. However, the first child died as an infant. When asked to Glen about why did he marry her, he said he believed in taking responsibility. They had a second daughter Debby. The couple got divorced on 1959.
His second wife was Billie Jean Nunley, who also is no more and died a long time ago on 1993. The couple was married for 16 whole years. The couple were married in 1959 and had the total of three children. They got divorced back in 1976, news claim that Billie asked Glen for the divorce.
On the same year of their divorce, Glen again got married to a singer, Sarah Barg. They got married on September 1976. On an interview, Glen said that,
I can’t be alone. We’re going to get married as soon as all the papers are in.
Sarah’s ex-husband was Glen’s friend. It was heard that Glen was the reason behind Sarah and his ex-husband’s divorce but Glen claims that it is not so. According to him, he started dating Sarah only after her divorce with her previous husband was complete.
But this relationship also didn’t last for too long. They got separated after four years of their marriage on 1980. After two years of their divorce, he then married Kimberly Woolen on 1982. Kimberly was his fourth wife and she was only 24 when they got married however Glen was 46 years of age. Kimberly was a dancer at that time. Their marriage was going on happily until Glen died recently on August. These are the facts I bet you didn't know about Glen Campbell.

As I mentioned earlier, after his husband's death, Kimberly wrote a letter about her husband, it goes like this,
I have been grieving and saying goodbye to Glen every day for the last six years, ever since his diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, not knowing which day he might forget me or which day might be his last. Although I knew it was inescapable and certain, nothing could have prepared me for the profound loss I felt as I said goodbye for the final time yesterday. I had been praying that I would be able to hold his hand when he entered eternity, and my request was granted. While surrounded by family, I watched him take his last breath.
The letter ended like this,
In 1981, Glen and I identified ourselves with the death, burial and resurrection of the Messiah by being immersed in a creek near the cemetery where Glen’s body will rest. Glen publicly professed his faith, publicly shared his struggles and triumphs over alcoholism, and publicly shared his journey with Alzheimer’s, all to the glory of God. I find immense comfort knowing that Glen’s spirit is now free and present with the Lord. I have no doubt that when he met his maker yesterday at 10am, he was greeted with, 'Well done, good and faithful servant.
