Donald Campbell. The American dream. He lived the life that everybody should aspire to live. He enjoyed every moment of his life. I would watch him as he sat in the famous Campbell backyard, he would look up and say "Ah look at that sky! Just beautiful!" Nothing made him happier than him just taking a simple walk around the park, or being greeted by his family at any hour of the day. Or night for that matter. He made an incredible family that I have been blessed to have. His home that he opened to the world has given us countless memories. He always greeted you with a smile and a complement. Always looking and thinking about others. He taught me how strong family is and he is the man I aspire to be. Thank you Paga Man. I love you.

Mr. (and Mrs.) Campbell are in my Hall of Fame of kind people. Throughout my life, I have often thought about how much their lives taught me about being compassionate, gentle and gracious to others. To know their children is to know this, as well. They are the same way. My prayers, love and gratitude are with you all. Well done Mr. Campbell. Thank you so much. Rest in Peace.

I am sure in his place in heaven now Mr. Campbell can hear me as I pray in gratitude. Thank you Mr. Campbell for teaching me how to play baseball starting at 8 years old to 12 years old in Bergenfield Little League. You were our coach and mentor, someone to be looked up to. As coach you showed us how to be a part of a team. You instilled in us the desire to win and have fun at the same time. Tenderly you taught us baseball and supported us in the most important ways at a very tender age. You shared your spirit of enthusiasm toughness and the desire to be the best while being very kind and supportive. Thank you Mr. Campbell for doing this for me and many others during your lifetime. Thank you also Mrs. Campbell for driving most of the kids in the block to our games and practices on time. You too made us feel so special as we went to our games. You made sure our socks and everything were just right. I felt so important as did others. God Bless you for this Mrs. Campbell .Thank You. The entire Campbell Family affected many people in the community in a positive in the example Mr. and Mrs. Campbell. For this I am very grateful.

Saying a prayer for the entire family. Mr. Campbell was always the neighbor everyone dreamed of. He had a constant smile and up beat attitude whether he was vacuuming the pool during the oppresive summer heat or taking out the trash in the winter in a T-shirt in 15 degree whether. An amazing man who will be missed. God bless.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time. What kid on the block does not remember Mr. Campbell treating EVERYONE to the ice cream man! The beautiful Christmas tree that filled the room and you could not walk around because of all the presents! Always a warm loving hug and smile as you walked into the house... Even if it was five times a day! He loved his family and if you walked into his home you were treated like family! All Our Love.... The Fitzpatrick Family...50 Sylvan! ðA'aðA'aðA'A"ðA'AâA¤ï¸AðA'aðA'a
