Dan was a kind man, a gracious boss, and a dear friend. I had the pleasure of working with him as a colleague for several years before reporting directly to him in a different position. He was happy to work through problems with me and help me to see things from his perspective. He also provided me space and encouragement to operate and thrive in areas of my competency.
I especially enjoyed the times outside of work when we’d talk about his life experiences–he truly lived a rich, blessed life. He was a great encouragement to me in how he cared for his mother. He had a strong faith that helped him through the real challenges he faced in his last decade.
Though I can still hear some of his sayings in my head, he will be missed for now.

Farewell to a former neighbor! Dan helped us out a time or two back in the 80s. He was the most pleasant young man that Harvey and I knew. May you rest in peace Dan.

Heartfelt condolences to the Campbell family! I remember Dan as always smiling and such a genuine kind and compassionate man! Rest In Peace, Dan and may Perpetual Light shine upon you!

Sending sincere and deepest condolences to Dan’s family. He was kind, sincere, and full of integrity. May Christ’s peace surround you at this time.

Sorry to hear about Dan’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you,

I had the pleasure of working with Dan for a number of years at MDU. He was a wonderful and kind individual and a great friend. There aren’t enough “Dan Campbells” in this world. Rest in peace, my friend.

My condolences to the family (so sorry for your loss). I was lucky enough to work with Dan at MDU Construction and Basin Electric. He was the type of coworker you wanted on your team, and possessed the qualities we should all strive to have. Dan was honest, genuine, and had the most helpful personality. He cared about everyone and showed caring in everything he did. He left a lasting impression on me and anyone he came into contact with. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

To the Campbell Family – I got to know Dan working at Williston Basin and Basin Electric. He was a kind and caring man. I am glad to have an opportunity to know him. Prayers for healing to his family and friends.
