Those who knew Larry Campbell talk of his generous spirit and his contributions to the community. “I don’t think he knew anyone but friends,” said Nancy Cerutti, senior planner for Los Alamos County Community Development Department.
Laurence (Larry) Campbell died Thursday after a yearlong battle with lung cancer.
He was 74.
“He was a dear man who contributed to the community in a big way,” said Nancy Bartlit, a Los Alamos Historical Society board member.
Campbell retired from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in 2001 after 35 years of service. He served as president of both the Historical Society and the Rotary Club and on the board of the New Mexico Historical Society.
