I found his son's obit: " Donald B. Campbell Jr. passed away Dec. 17, 2009, in Pueblo, Colorado. Donald was born Sept. 19, 1927, in Portland, Ore., to Donald and Neva (V Larson) Campbell. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Colorado in 1951, was an Eagle Scout and was a veteran of the U.S. Army. His survivors include his wife, Marguerite; sons, Don and Walter; two sisters and several nieces and nephews. No viewing or public service. Cremation in the Davis Crematory." second cousin once removed, Donald Barcher Campbell Jr.'s children: first cousins twice removed: Donald III and Walter Nancy Campbell's children: unknown Kathleen Campbell's children: unknown

"A brief history update. Donald was called "Pete" by the family. When he was young he applied for a lumberjack job. He did not think Donald was a manly enough name so he called himself Pete and it stuck. Most of his life he worked for Dupont. He was transfered numerous times. His last transfer was from Iowa to Orange, Texas when my mom Neva Kathleen Campbell or Kathleen C Black was a Junior in High School. I lived for a time in Orange as a child and saw them often. In 1984 or 85 my grandparents came to Baltimore to a nursing home where they both passed in 1988. Pete was an outdoors men he traveled the world hunting and fishing. His last great trip was to Alaska with my brother in 1973. On the way they stopped in Oregon to see Pete's sisters. I'll dig out a picture and send it to you. He looks very much like AA Campbell in old age."
