Dale William Campbell

July 24, 1933October 30, 2021

COLUMBIA, SC - Dale William Campbell, age 88, passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 30, 2021 in Augusta, GA.

Dale was born in Pitcairn, PA to the late James William Campbell and Emma (Webber) Campbell. He was the youngest of four siblings. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brothers, James Campbell and Donald Campbell, and his sister, June Houck.

Dale served in the U.S. Army and afterwards he worked for Westinghouse for 38 years. He was given assignments to nuclear facilities in Saluggia, Italy and Brussels, Belgium. Dale and his family moved to Columbia, SC in 1969 for the opening of the Westinghouse Nuclear Fuel Division Plant (now Columbia Fuel Fabrication Facility) in Hopkins where he worked as a Quality Control Supervisor until he retired.

Dale enjoyed spending time with his family more than anything although watching the Pittsburgh Steelers was a close second. He also enjoyed swimming in his pool, fixing things, working in his yard. Dale was always a happy, positive person and had a great sense of humor. His children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews were often the recipients of his playful humor, which everyone enjoyed. As a father, he had a great ability to listen to both sides of a situation and offer impartial advice, a trait that was greatly valued by his children. Dale, Dad, Grandpa will be missed by his family and friends. He was loved by all that knew him.

He is survived by his wife, Susanna Elizeus Campbell; his children, Daniel John Campbell (Annette) of Evans, GA, Debra Marie Campbell (Britt Reid) of Tacoma, WA and Diane Emma Campbell (Chris Havekost) of Denver, CO; five grandchildren, Andrew Campbell (Natalie), Scott Campbell (Ashley), Meredith Tolleson (Nick Smith), Spencer Tolleson, Paige Tolleson; one great-grandchild, Luke Campbell; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A graveside service with military honors will be held for Mr. Campbell at 11:00 a.m. Monday, December 6, 2021 in the Fort Jackson National Cemetery.

“Uncle Dale” was a wonderful, kind, gentle person. He never said a cross word to us or showed an unwelcome expression. He would bring his family to visit us or pick us up to visit them in Pitcairn. He drove a VW bug back then. He joyfully played with the kids including teasing them. He was a hard worker—working at Westinghouse during the day, worked a part time sales job at night, and maintained a rental house and apartment. Rest In Peace Uncle Dale. We love you. Bob, Joanne, Bobby & Vickie.

Dear Sue, Danny, Debbie and Diane, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. We all loved Dale. He was a great son, father, brother and grandfather. We all knew Dale loved his family, and he was a Child of God. I am sure Gammy and Pap Pap, Don, June and Jim were all waiting to welcome him. Thank you Diane for always staying in touch with us. I spoke with Aunt Barb Campbell, actually I was with her, and told her in person. She was saddened, but we both knew our time is coming.

Love to you all, Aunt Barb (the other one!!!)
