ESCANABA - Dean G. Campbell, 43, of Escanaba, passed away on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012, at home following a lengthy illness.
He was born on Aug. 15, 1969, in Norway, son of Diana and James Moraska of Powers, and Fred & Jan Campbell of Iron Mountain. He attended Norway and Iron Mountain school systems.
Dean was a very loving and caring man with a big heart who would do anything he could for you. Dean was an excellent welder and worked for various companies. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, but most of all his love was playing the guitar. He was self taught and played like a professional.

Dean was preceded in death by his sister, Natalie Campbell; his maternal grandparents, John and Dorothy Cowley; paternal grandmother, Mary Campbell; and his aunt, Doreen Cowley.
Per Dean's wishes there will be no visitation services. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
