BEAVERTON — Daniel Francis Campbell IV, 79, died of complications of primary progressive aphasia Nov. 2. There was a funeral Mass at Holy Trinity Church.

Mr. Campbell, the son of Daniel and Cecelia Scanlan Campbell, was born Dec. 30, 1940, in Portland. He attended St. Rose Grade School and graduated from Central Catholic High School in 1959. He attended Santa Ana and San Diablo Community colleges and San Jose State. He was proud to be a Marine Sergeant serving in the USMCR Helicopter Squadron Air Reserves 1964-1970 in Alameda, California. He lived most of his life in Marin County, California. He moved to Reno, Nevada in 2003 and Beaverton in Jan. 2020.

Mr. Campbell was a hard worker all his life. As a boy he had a newspaper route, worked on a farm, and as a pin-boy in the bowling alley at Rockaway above the Natatorium, earning 10 cents a game. He loved anything cars and worked at dealerships in Portland. He pivoted to the newspaper industry and ran presses in Oregon, California and for a brief time in Florida. He had the ability to connect with people instantly, and many friendships lasted his entire life. In college he was famous for organizing and hosting potluck spaghetti feeds. After college he organized softball tournaments and motorcycle rides. He became a successful restaurant owner, including The Butchery, Positively 4th Street and George’s (which grew into a legendary music venue) all in Marin County. In 1975 he opened The Tom Foolery in Napa. The check cashing business and real estate investments were the next chapter. In a surprise twist, at 52 years old, he attended the prestigious London-based Ivor Spencer School of Butlers and Personal Assistants, and worked as a butler in Arkansas.

He played basketball in grade and high school, ran the Dipsea, and the New York marathon, played golf, volleyball and became an avid tennis player. He rode his BMW on many long-distance motorcycle trips together with his friends.

His love of children (and dogs) was legendary. He had countless nieces, nephews and godchildren whom he mentored. Charismatic, generous, compassionate, kind and meticulous are a few adjectives used to describe him, as well as “a leader.”

He is survived by his siblings, Edward, Patricia and John of Beaverton, Margaret of Eugene, and Constance Edwards of Seattle; 12 nieces and nephews; eight grandnieces and nephews; as well as countless cousins, friends and admirers. He was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Cecelia (Sister Maureen of the Trinity, OCD).
