1965 - 2021
David Campbell (Parsonsfield, ME) has made a big impact in the cribbage community since joining the ACC in 2001. He was named Rookie of the ear for the 2001-02 season and earned All-American honors. He has won 27 tournaments, as well as earning his Life Master (2 Star) and his Grass Roots Bronze Award.
David's contributions to the ACC extend beyond the playing board. He began directing tournaments in 2002, and has continued to direct tournaments every year. He also directed Grand Nation XXVI (2007, Portland ME), co-directed Grand National XXXV (2016, Bethesda MD) and directed Grand National XXXVIII (2020, North Conway NH). David also serves as Senior Judge, assists with cross-checking and tournament administration needs, and recruits and encourages members to become more involved in the organization.
David has served on the Board of Directors for the last 16 years. He has taken a leadership role within the Board, serving for 8 years as Vice President of Operations before his election as ACC President in 2017. David's combination of talent, hard work, and dedication to the ACC make him a well-deserved addition to the Hall of Fame.
David (age 55) passed away unexpectedly on February 10, 2021. A twenty-year member of the ACC, David was a first-class cribbage player and an even better ambassador of the game he loved. He served on the Board of Directors for sixteen years and was just completing his fourth year as ACC president. More importantly, he loved his friends and family. He enjoyed traveling and visiting cribbage friends around the country. The members of the ACC extend our deepest condolences to his daughter, Kesia Campbell; his girlfriend, Lana Newhouse ; and Lana's daughter, Carley Newhouse.
