Campbell Scott Johnson had an infectious spirit of life, love and laughter. Born in 1992, in Flint, Michigan to Donald and Julia Johnson. He has left behind His Grandmother Carol Faucett his parents and his 4 siblings; Donald, Alexander, Jacob and Olivia. Campbell was a tennis prodigy who as a Junior Player trained and studied at the Andy Roddick Tennis Academy before playing Division 1 tennis at both the University of Georgia and graduating from the University of California Berkley. He was awarded Pac 12 Newcomer of the year in 2013 and Coached Professionally at The Tiburon Peninsula Club in San Francisco and the Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club. His sister Olivia wrote, “My brother as larger than life, the brightest light in the room, hilarious, infectious, unstoppable, and loved by everyone who ever had the opportunity to know him. Campbell had a tattoo of the number seven in Roman numerals. And next to it he had the word “strong”. There are seven people in my family and together we had an incredibly strong and unbreakable bond. We are not six strong; we are still seven strong, forever. Campbell is a piece of all of us because that’s what Campbell did. He grabbed a hold of people’s hearts and he will stay within us forever.” Our hearts are broken but we are full of gratitude for how Campbell brightened each day with his charismatic personality and love of life. There will be a Celebration of Life service at the Torrey Pines Gliderport on Sunday, August 30 10am. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Campbell’s memory to Cal Tennis.

I just found out by accident that Campbell died.
Actually I have searched for all of you on the internet - DJ, Alex, Campbell, Jacob, Olivia.
I don't know if you remember me. I was your AuPair in 1998/1999 as you lived in Bloomfield Hills in Michigan. I never forgot about you. I still remember the time I could spent in your family and Campbell and all of yours had always a special place in my heart.
I'm so sorry about what happened to Campbell and I assure you of my deepest sympathy.
Campbell was such a nice boy. I loved his smile and his friendly nature so much.
Dear Julia and Donald, I will never forget the time I was able to spend with you guys.
Dear Donald, Julia, DJ, Alex, Jacob and Olivia
feel hugs and greetings from the heart. I am so sorry for everything. I send you lots of love and hugs.
I will always remember your wonderful son and brother CAMPBELL.
In love yours Christina

Hi Campbell's family, I am saddened to hear of Campbell's passing. I knew him through RSF tennis and as a friend. He brought joy into my life in the brief time that I knew him. I would always bring extra cliff bars for him at RSF, because he was so dedicated to the kids that he would forget to eat. He was always so grateful for this small kindness that I sometimes wondered if I was actually giving him gold! Another time his character shined was when I was separated from my friends at a concert and I happened to run into him. He stayed with me until I found my friends, even though his friends were trying to leave. Campbell was a wonderful person and I wish I had had more years to get to know him. I can only imagine how difficult this loss must be for those who knew him the longest and loved him the most. I will miss Campbell and I regret not being able to make the memorial service in August.

Thinking of you,

To the Johnson Family,

I can't express my sorrow for your loss. I had the chance to know Campbell as his Academic Advisor after transferring to CAL. He arrived with a quiet, almost hesitant approach as I think he was realizing the academic rigor that lie ahead. But suddenly, without fear, his true personality and confidence arrived as he grew comfortable in his new world. An instant connection was made as we both came from San Diego, loved being in the sun, and used a skateboard as a primary means of transportation around campus. I truly enjoyed watching the transformation and how he instantly became almost a big brother to each new teammate that arrived subsequently, even if he only arrived a few months prior. Campbell had the ability to make you feel at ease, make you laugh, and make sure you felt a sense of inclusion. Watching him grow into the Assistant Coach role only reaffirmed his natural charisma around players, parents, coaches, and administrators. You had to love him, he wouldn't allow otherwise.

To Campbell,

Cruise until the sun is about to set, pick a good spot to toss down the blanket, and kick off your sandals. Time to relax and enjoy what you have rightfully earned. Miss you my friend.
