Honoring Dee Campbell

Honoring Dee CampbellWednesday, October 26, 2016 - News - DeArcey Thomas "Dee" Campbell

On behalf of the Alexandria Crew Boosters Board, the ACB members, our current student rowers, the TC Williams alumni rowers and all those who have enjoyed the fruits of the amazing crew program built in Alexandria by rowing and coaching legend Dee Campbell, we send our deepest, heartfelt condolences to the Campbell family. We are reminded of the vast contributions that Dee made, not only to TC William Rowing, but to the whole rowing community in Alexandria, the Commonwealth of Virginia and nationally, every time we visit our boat house, The Dee Campbell Rowing Center.

Yet these contributions and acknowledgements pale in comparison to the outpourings of love and affection we have seen by those who knew him, who rowed for him, and the many people whose lives were touched by him. We hope that the tributes, photos, and vignettes about Dee that have been posted on social media and elsewhere provide Dee's family some comfort and a smile in this difficult hour. There will never be another Dee Campbell and he will be greatly missed.

Michael Souza, President, Alexandria Crew Boosters.

Dee's family will receive friends on Thursday, October 27th from 2:00 to 4:00pm and 6:00 to 8:00pm at Everly Wheatley Funeral Home, 1500 W. Braddock Road, Alexandria, VA, where funeral services will be held on Friday, October 28th at 12;00 noon. Graveside services will follow immediately at National Memorial Park, Falls Church. In lieu of flowers, Dee's family asks that you please consider making a donation in Dee Campbell's name to the Alexandria Crew Boosters, PO Box 3202, Alexandria, Va. 22302.
