Ryan Brent Campbell

January 13, 1976 — June 10, 2023


Ryan Brent Campbell (age 47), our dear husband, father, son, uncle, and friend passed away unexpectedly on June 10, 2023, at Davis Holy Cross Hospital with cardiopulmonary issues. Ryan is forever deeply loved by his immediate and extended families and is dearly missed by all who know him.


Ryan was born on January 13, 1976, in Logan, Utah. He is the second of four sons born to Robert Bruce Campbell and Glynis LaVae Crow Campbell and lived in Hyrum, Utah, Missoula, Montana, and Richfield, Utah. He was a passionate Cub Scout, Boy Scout, athlete, and played the clarinet. These activities informed his continued passions throughout life including a love of outdoor adventures, sports, and an eclectic taste in music. He graduated from Richfield High School in 1995.


Ryan was gifted in the kitchen and worked in food service for 14 years. He was a sous chef at the Radisson Hotel and at the Marriott Park Olympia Hotel, both in Park City. He developed strong leadership skills in management positions at Café Rio and Souper Salad in Salt Lake City.


Ryan worked 19 years for the American Red Cross. He began as a Phlebotomist, and advanced to various roles including Charge, Instructor, and Supervisor. The ripples of Ryan’s influence with the American Red Cross reached hundreds of co-workers in multiple states, and to countless donors, volunteers, and recipients.


Ryan fell deeply in love with his soulmate, Emily Gunnell, while they were both working at the American Red Cross in Salt Lake City. They would later realize that they were both brought into this world by the same doctor in Logan, Utah. Ryan and Emily were married in Logan Canyon, Utah on November 4, 2006. The family made their home in Herriman, Utah with their son, Logan. Two years later, they were thrilled with the birth of their daughter, Emma. Shortly after, they bought their home in Clearfield, Utah.


The biggest joy of Ryan’s life was his family. He was a wonderful father and husband who relished spending time with Emily, Logan, and Emma. One of their favorite activities was exploring the outdoors together. They loved the mountains, the beach, and especially the Oregon coast. He was immensely proud of his children and genuinely loved and respected them. He was pleased to see Logan enjoy Cub Scouts, basketball, football, and his success at work. He was delighted to see Emma’s success in volleyball, basketball, and her school achievements. His family will dearly miss Sunday football games, his relentless pranks, and cooking together in the kitchen.


Ryan loved adventures. His outings with family and friends included camping, fishing, hiking, golfing, jet skiing, disc golf, and travel. He most enjoyed playing baseball and softball, watching professional baseball, and Colts football. Ryan and a small group of close friends had a multi-year goal to see a baseball game in every major league stadium in America. They were over halfway to reaching their goal. Ryan enjoyed assembling and decoupaging jigsaw puzzles. He and his extended family camped and enjoyed the beauty of nature in local areas, and in state and national forests and parks.


Ryan was a kind, gentle, compassionate person who was adored by everyone he met. He had a raucous sense of humor and an easy-going nature that was a joy to be around. He was always a good friend and a brave defender of right when he saw injustice. Ryan will be dearly missed, but his trademark smile and giggle will forever live rent-free in our hearts.


Ryan is survived by his wife, Emily; his children, Logan and Emma, his parents, Robert B. and Glynis Campbell; his three brothers, Ross (Melissa) Campbell, Stephen Campbell, and Paul (Megan) Campbell; and many nieces, nephews, and extended family who loved him. Ryan was preceded in death by his grandparents, Robert Bruce and Juliene Campbell; grandparents, Julius LaVerl and Emma Ila Crow; and a sister-in-law, Tracy (Daniel) Halterman.


The family extends warm appreciation and gratitude to those who helped in any way with the care of, and final services for, our beloved Ryan.


A Celebration of Life will be held 11:00 a.m. Saturday, June 24, 2023, at the Lindquist’s Syracuse Mortuary, located at 869 South 2000 West, Syracuse, Utah 84075. Ryan will be interred at the Syracuse Cemetery, 1250 South 1000 West, Syracuse, Utah.


After the interment, a light luncheon will be served for family and close friends at the LDS church building, 2186 Katie’s Way, Clearfield, Utah.
