    I am so sorry to hear if the passing if Chief Campbell. I worked with him at Globel Weather in 1990-1994. He was a great leader and wonderful man. Prayers for the family.

    Dave was a favorite of ours on our 6-county Bookmobile route. He was an interesting, intelligent man. Some people are unforgettable, and Dave was one of those. Our hearts go out to Marsha and the rest of the family. We take joy in knowing that Dave is free right now. Earthly limitations no longer apply. He will certainly be remembered.
