On my initial trip to LU I walked into Demoss Hall entered the JF Museum and the first person I met was Mr. Campbell. He could not have been nicer and over the past 7 years I always made a point of looking him up. We would sit and he would fill me in on the local news of the day and we would discuss LU sports, major league baseball and the progress my girls were making @ LU. I will miss him and my next trip to LU will not be the same, but Liberty's loss is Heaven's gain.

Faye, I'm sorry to learn of Dave's Passing. If one were to look up the definition of a gentleman,it would describe this man. Dave and I played ball and worked together at the bank and then he continued to stay in touch with me during his time at Liberty through my cousins children who were students there.(you know Dave, he had to know everyone). I will always remember his warm smile and gentle demeanor. No one spoke unkind things about this man. He was loved by all and we will miss him greatly. God Bless you and the family

Having Mr. Campbell work with us in the Jerry Falwell Museum was a privilege and honor. His positive outlook on life and his commitment to helping people influenced so many who came through our doors. He will be and is now missed so much! Rest in peace, dear friend.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Dave was such an exceptional man. I have known Dave since he worked with my mother, Ann, at the Fairview Branch. I so fondly remember his cheerful and engaging smile when he would often visit the Brookville Drug Store lunch counter, where I worked in high school. I have thought of Dave and his family many, many times through the years. He will sadly be missed. I pray God's peace and gentle comfort for the Campbell family during this difficult time.

I worked with Dave at Central Fidelity. He was a gentle soul and as others have said, had a kind word for everyone. My thoughts are with the family and the many friends that Dave made in his life.

I am sorry to hear of Dave's passing. I worked with him for two years when I was a student at LU in the the Jerry Falwell Museum. I loved sitting down and hearing both him and Nolan tell stories of their childhood and the days gone by. Even after I stopped working in the museum, I would say hi to him and I walked through DeMoss and later make a point to go visit him when I came back in town. His was a life well lived! May God be felt deeply during this time.
