Andrew Campbell, a 22-year resident of Palm Desert and Desert Cities CA, died in Alconbury, England while serving as a Petty Officer in the US Navy. Born in 1985, Andrew was a graduate of the College of the Desert, a sustained Dean's List recipient, who achieved dual Associate of Arts degrees. Andrew's interests were diverse and wide-ranging, balancing his "techy" nature with a love of the natural world. He enjoyed the beach, mountain biking in Arizona, and hiking in and around Palm Desert, achieving several local peaks, including Mount San Gorgonio. He signed on with the US Navy in 2011, serving proudly as a force for good in the world. Andrew posted to England in 2013, and is remembered by his fellow sailors as an outgoing companion who enjoyed tourism and adventure. Andrew is survived by a loving family and many friends, including his mother Jacqueline (George) Kovacs of Redondo Beach, CA; father Clayton (Lalaine) Campbell of Rancho Mirage, CA; grandparents Len and Joan Cox of Payson, AZ; and Gladys and Albert (deceased) Campbell of Beaumont, CA. The Memorial Service will be held at St. Francis Episcopal Church in Palos Verdes Estates on Monday December 23, 2013 at 11:30am. A private burial service with Military Honors will take place at Riverside National Cemetery in Riverside, CA.

  1. Unfortunately, I did not have the privilege of knowing Petty Officer 3rd Class Andrew Campbell, but by every instance I inquired about him, only positive things are said about him. He was a great asset to the JAC Team, the European Command, the Navy, and the Department of Defense. We started a new tradition over here in the Alconbury/Molesworth Command. We will commemorate Andrew’s memory the Friday before the annual Army/Navy football game. This year the Navy won both games (the command’s and the real on National Television). May Andrew’s memory live forever, and let’s always remember the sacrifices he voluntarily endured for his country. As I fellow NCO, I salute you Petty Officer Campbell, and I’m
    honored to have serve with you in the same command.

  3. My sincere condolences to Clayton and Jaqueline. It is hard enough to try to put into words the emotions you are dealing with right now. True comfort can only be found by knowing the true Creator. Knowing that He hates death: he even views it as an enemy.(1 Corinthian 15:26) He has €œa yearning€ to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He longs to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again-Job 14:14,15. And for the mean time€œ He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds.€(Psalms 147:3). So trust that He can comfort you.

  4. My dear son, Andrew: You were such a quiet, thoughtful and loving child, the best young man, who grew to be a fine gentleman, and the most wonderful human being that a mother could ever ask to call “Son”. I want you to know how very proud I am and always was and will be forever with your accomplishments and your life here on earth. When I remember back, I think of the beautiful boy, gentle soul, lover of life and adventure, studious school boy and a the man who was full of integrity, kindness and compassion. You were truly a man of exemplary character and strength which shone through to everyone you met in your life. The world has lost a great guy! And now you are in God’s company ~ bless you always, Your Mom.
