I worked with Don at the Unocal Refinery in the 1970's. He trained me and I learned a great deal from him. He stressed safety and I appreciated his concerns. I sorry to learn of his passing. Mike 'Gibbs

Don was a good friend to our family as long as I can remember. He and Bonnie took many vacations with my parents and was always there when mom and dad needed them. It is impossible for me to describe how much his kindness meant to us, there are just too many good stories to tell. Even after both my parents passed he would call before Christmas every year. He will be missed.

I have fond memories of Scoutmaster Campbell and putting on the derby every year! He always made it exciting to see who would win! Heaven just got another Angel in training! All my love to his family!
