He passed away Tuesday at the age of 81.

"An incredible voice, incredible musician, incredible friend; movie star and recording artist". "When I got home Kim was heartbroken and furious and I was afraid she was going to take Cal and leave". On Tuesday night, she tweeted, "I owe him everything I am, and everything I ever will be". "He will be remembered so well and with so much love". Well said. ABC's David Wright has a look at his remarkable life. You know, it just breaks my heart. Campbell went on to play guitar on the Beach Boys' platinum record Pet Sounds. "Love & Mercy", wrote The Beach Boys star Brian Wilson.

Aaberg said Alzheimer's goes beyond forgetfulness. In fact, I was probably five when I learned and memorized all of the words to "Rhinestone Cowboy". "And a star-spangled rodeo".

By the late '60s, he was a performer on his own, and an appearance on Joey Bishop's show led to his TV breakthrough. Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.

"He was a wonderful session musician as well".

Gorman has an Ovation guitar that Campbell gave him as a birthday present.

Webb, who still tours regularly - he'll be at One World Theatre on October 26 - last year brought a show called "The Glen Campbell Years" to Austin. What was I saying? "Whether I play it right or wrong, I'd rather have played it". He was "as blonde as the sun and solid as a bale of hay", said one critic of Campbell's "beefcake physique". Reporter: Released at age 75.

Aaberg says some who suffer from Alzheimer's end up living a decade or more with the illness, but most will end up needing a full-time caregiver. But his music endures and so does his memory. "As a role model, singing guitar player he was a big influence on me", Urban wrote. I'm here for you. "You were fantastic. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your musical contributions". Reporter: His heartbreaking final hit a tribute to his wife performed at the oscars by Tim Mcgraw.??? "We have lost an icon who will be greatly missed, but Glen's musical gifts will live on forever".

Lexington resident Frank Barker remembered taking Campbell on a tour of Hazard and Perry County in 1968.

Campbell was the seventh son of parents who were sharecroppers. If you're a "Glen Campbell", I think you should find your "Alice Cooper". "You keep yelling at me, you know I could whoop your ass.' He laughed".

"When we opened for Glen in Branson, MO on his farewell tour, I told him that he was one of the few artists that I could pinpoint times in my life when I first heard his songs".
