Posted

David Allen Campopiano, 58, of Johnston, went to heaven Feb. 3, 2014.

He was the son of Hazel (Reedy) Campopiano and the late Remo N. Campopiano.

Besides his mother, he is survived by his brothers Steven (Remo) Campopiano of Minneapolis, Minn., and Michael F. Campopiano and his wife, Claudia of Bristol; his nephew Adam Campopiano and his wife Stephanie of Johnston,  and Alyssa Williams and her children, Victoria Williams and Sean Williams of Lincoln, and Sofie Campopiano of Austin, Texas; and his Aunt Shirley Hurd of Johnston.

He was preceded in death by his long-time friend and buddy Alan Tucker of Chepachet.

David was a really good guy who enjoyed restoring his 1978 Chevy El Camino.  He was a talented carpenter who helped build Ramble Woods in Gloucester, Mass., with his father and brothers back in the early 70s.

He was known to everyone at the Salvation Army ARC Facility in Providence as MacGuyver where he lived and thrived for several years.  He loved to tinker with boats and remote-controlled helicopters. He built windmills in the yard of his Scituate, Mass., home where he lived with his beloved mom.

He will be sorely missed.

Funeral services were held Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014, in the Winfield and Son’s Funeral Home, 571 West Greenville Rd., in Scituate.

Burial was in Highland Memorial Park Cemetery, Johnston.
