Don and his three siblings, Dennis, David and Darla, grew up on the family farm near Corydon where Don lived most of his childhood years. Don graduated from Wayne Community High School in 1980 and then went on to college at AIB in Des Moines and completed his BA from Upper Iowa University.
March 5, 1994, Don was married to Kim Campbell and they had one son, Brandon Tyler Campbell. Brandon was Don’s pride and joy and attending his sporting events was his favorite pasttime. Don was an avid sports fan but especially loved watching Brandon play. He never missed a game or meet – home or away. He was extremely proud of the fact that Brandon is enrolled at the University of Iowa this fall.
Don enjoyed spending time with his family, friends and of course sporting events. He was always there for family gatherings and ready for a good game of pitch with the family or simply sitting around the table laughing, joking and picking on someone. He was a man of few words, but with a big heart.
Don has been employed at the Principal Financial Group in Des Moines for the last several years and was a member of the Lutheran Church of the Cross in Altoona.
His grandparents and father, Dick Campbell, preceded him in death.
Don is survived by his son, Brandon of Mingo; mother, Norma of Corydon, brothers, David of Clive and Dennis and wife Brenda of Corydon; sister, Darla of Des Moines; nephew, Cody Campbell and niece, Katelyn Campbell, both of Corydon.
