Dear Michael, I am very sad to hear about your bother David. I don’t know if you know this , but David was the Ring Bearer at uncle Bob and my wedding July 19, 1953. I am very grateful you called me .
Love, aunt Fran
I was very sorry to hear about your brother David. He was one of those unsung players that helped launch Guilderland soccer from nothing into becoming something in high school soccer. Life is so short and I have fond memories of the kind of person he was.
In 1965, when you’re a timid, skinny tenth-grader playing varsity soccer for the first time, a graceful, elegant senior starter could be pretty intimidating. Not so with Dave Campisi. He was cool, kind and oh so talented, exactly the mentor you would hope to find. I was heartbroken when I learned of his passing this past Saturday. I will forever be thankful for the honor and privilege of playing with such a fine leader. Dave played alongside Lyn Edinger and Bobby Austin, two great people with similar qualities. The three comprised a tremendous defense that always covered your mistakes and made you feel like you belonged. Bless you Dave.
Mike and Family — My deepest condolences.
