I have fond memories of the many times spent with the Campau family from my time in East Lansing. The remaining family members will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Sally, Renee, Richard, Robert and family,

Marsha and I are deeply saddened to hear about Dick’s recent passing. I worked along side Dick at the Michigan State Medical Society for nearly 25 of his 35 years and can attest to how much DIck was loved and admired by the countless Michigan physicians and staff who worked with and for him.
Dick was a true gentleman who had a wonderful laugh that could melt a iceburg, and frequently talked about how much he loved his friends and family, East Lansing and its surrounds.
Good bye old friend. All of us whose lives you’ve touched will sorely miss you. May God watch over you always.
