John Campbell visited Marco and decided to stay — that was five years ago.

Hometown: Pittsburgh metropolitan area

Occupation: Trucking business

Education: High school in Beaver County, Pa.

How he got to Marco: We vacationed here, liked the weather, and decided someday we’d like to come back. That was about five years ago.

Favorite thing about Marco: The weather, because it is beautiful all year-round.

Sage Advice: Find and cherish a strong belief in Jesus Christ. There’s a lot more I can say. It changed my life when I made a partnership with Almighty God. I started a business with nothing. Because I gave it to God, I am still in business 38 years later. Even in these economic times, things have gone well. I learned a long time ago. Be a giver. Give everything, and never stop.
