David V. Campagna Obituary
October 23, 1946 - March 6, 2017 On March 6, 2017, David Campagna passed away. He died as he lived his life, with style and grace, breathing his last breath in a suite at the Beverly Hills Hotel with his beloved Carolyn at his side. David was an actor, an artist, and a world traveler but he was much more than the disciplines he chose to pursue. His thirst for knowledge was unquenchable, only a small evidence of which was the thousand book personal library he left. David was fascinated by Eastern religion and traveled to places like Kathmandu, trekking the mountains of Nepal to further his search. But no matter how serious his quest for inner peace, he maintained a sharp sense of humor with a rapier wit, always ready with a quick barb to deflate someone's misplaced ego. Though he had no children, David loved kids and played the crazy uncle to his friends' children. A visit by Uncle David always meant laughter and a lot of fun. Most important of all, David's devotion to his friends was absolute. No matter how his life was going, he rooted for and celebrated their successes and commiserated with their problems. In times of sorrow, he was always there to sooth their pain. In times of elation, his joy for them was infectious and unmistakably genuine. All of his friends feel his loss, and he will be sorely missed. David had several love affairs in his life, but by far he saved his greatest for last. He and Carolyn were true soul mates who fully adored each other, and sanctified this love in their marriage this past Valentine's Day. It gave all of his friends great pleasure to see that he had found such a wonderful woman who understood what a great guy he was. His last thoughts were not about his fate but rather that of Carolyn as he asked his friends to make sure she was okay. David was cremated with his ashes sent to Carolyn. He is survived by Carolyn, his brother John, and the many friends who adored him.
