VAN CAMP, RICHARD G.  
VAN CAMP RICHARD GORDON VAN CAMP Richard Gordon Van Camp, born October 17, 1951 in Washington D.C. to Mrs. Gabrielle Van Camp and Mr. Gordon Van Camp, passed away from cardiac arrest at 4 a.m. April 28, 2015 at Fairfax Inova Hospital in Fairfax, Virginia. He was comforted by his long-time companion Denise Campbell and family members. He was 63 years old. Gabrielle remembers her son as "my sweet boy". Richard was a thoughtful and caring person even as a young boy. He was once offered a bag of apples by a paper route customer. He brought the apples home and said "Here mom, now you can bake some pies". In the last five years he has been the main provider for his mom's needs. In high school Richard was a great sales person for his paper route. He started so many new customers that he won trips to many places and even got a scholarship to college. He still found time to be a good brother to his sister Carol. He took her to high school events quite often. Or he would spend time hanging out with his younger brother Bob, and writing to his older sister, Diana, who was away at college. Richard graduated from Virginia Tech in 1973 with a degree in economics and accounting and became a certified public accountant. He married Karen Anderson in 1973 and they had a beautiful daughter, Laura Beth, in 1979. He worked for an accounting firm for a short time, but his real passion was creating and running his own business. Richards' first business was Richards' Decorating, which eventually turned into Sun Decks, Inc. His brother Robert worked with him at Sun Decks for a season. Time Life asked Richard to write an article about how to build a sun deck for their book on home improvements. The article was full of diagrams, pictures and measurements suited to the do-it-yourself builder. Eventually Richard resigned as president of Sun Decks to pursue a passion to help people through real-estate. He managed real estate investments and helped many people qualify to own a home. He helped re-build low economic areas so that residents would have a quality place to live. Richard took up ice skating in 1979 and won several championships with his pairs and dance partners. He also loved the outdoors and exercise. He became an avid bike rider and took many long trips riding beautiful trails throughout the country. Many of his ice skating buddies still gather several times a year to fellowship and play music together. The idea of playing music inspired Richard to come back to his love for the violin. He started taking lessons again after 30 years and became a more accomplished musician. He challenged himself to learn pieces such as Meditation from Thais by Massenet, and played duets with his sister, Diana. He confessed recently that he listens to classical music at night to relax and fall asleep. Richard supported the Special Olympics and actually gave ice skating lessons to a Special Olympics athlete for many years. He was also an officer in the Lupus Foundation and helped raise money for their cause. He was a true humanitarian in that nothing was too much for him to do to help people in need. Richard loved cross word puzzles and texting his niece Debra (OSU grad) about football games. When Virginia Tech played and beat Ohio State last fall, there was much "excitement" in the family. Most of all, Richard was a kind-hearted man who loved life and loved people. He was an over comer in difficult situations and always kept his great sense of humor. He recently re-dedicated his life to the Lord Jesus Christ and is now resting in the arms of Jesus. Richard was preceded in death by his father Gordon Ashley Van Camp. He is survived by his mother Gabrielle Van Camp, his daughter Laura Beth Van Camp, his companion Denise Campbell, his sisters Diana Van Camp and Carol Waugh, his brother Robert Van Camp and his ex-wife Karen Van Camp. A memorial service is planned for Saturday May 9 at 11 a.m. at Arlington Presbyterian Church, 3507 Columbia Pike, Arlington, Virginia. 22204. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be made in the form of contributions to the American Cancer Society in Richards' memory.
