He is survived by wife Jessie Garcia, daughters Ava Havel (Nick) and Manuela Hernandez, granddaughter Karli, mother F. Margaret Campbell, brother Allen Campbell (Lynn), 11 nieces and nephews and 20 great nieces and nephews.

Fred lived in the Chicago area during college and lived in Ft. Collins, Colorado before moving to Kenmore, Washington in 1986. He was known by many in selling cars and boats. His final job was with the IRS. He lived a healthy life completing 14 marathons, numerous half marathons, and 6 Seattle to Portland bike rides.

Fred's love, other than family, were riding his Harley Davidson, playing his drums, and enjoying the outdoors. He had a zest for life which came across in his humor.

Tio Freddie was a true Renaissance Man. He was incredibly smart and funny, athletic, a musician and a Harley man. I'll never forget the first year the Rock-n-Roll Marathon came to Phoenix, and here comes Tio Freddie, bounding along the route, shaking hands and taking pictures of the crowd, as if we were the rock stars. That's who he was, always able to make you feel special. I will cherish you in my heart forever.

Fred was a dynamic person that I could never forget, a great car salesman and a personable person who was kind to everyone. He should have been a mayor in a great city.

Cousin Jessie,

The first time I met Fred was at your parents 50th Anniversay cruise. He impressed me then as someone who was good to you and loved you dearly. His warmth and friendliness was also present on the few occasions that I saw him. May God continue to bless you with the warmth and comfort of the memories of your years together. On behalf of myself, my Mother and siblings, deepest condolences to you, his mother and your family.

I first met Fred when he moved to Seattle with Jessie,Eva and Manuela.I found out early that Fred was a car guy with many other passions.My kind of guy...It wasn't long before I had the pleasure of hosting there outside wedding at our log home.We met the whole Cambell clan and began sharing holidays and gatherings with the Cambells,Schermanns,Hildalgos,Garcias,Dudleys and the list goes on and on....Laura and I later moved to Florida but have still been close to Fred and the whole family.Miles apart doesn't separate good friends.We will all remember you Fred as a funny,articulate and social man that shared his passion for living with everyone he met..Ride on ,we will meet again..Jim
