Robert M. Campano

d. January 4, 2022

Halfmoon- Robert M. Campano, 47, of Halfmoon, New York died January 4, 2022 surrounded by his parents and son. A true warrior, Rob lived his life with strength, courage, optimism, and love every day. He was forever grateful for the gift of life given to him sixteen years ago from his father, a kidney transplant.
Born on July 8, 1974 to Ronald and Patricia Campano, Rob grew up on Stop 13 Road in West Sand Lake, New York. Always young at heart, he cherished and often reminisced about his memorable childhood. He would recall the days of Italian Sunday dinners with family, cousins who were the best of friends, backyard wiffle ball while impersonating Yankee great Phil Rizzuto, Little League baseball games, magical Christmas mornings, and forever looking after his kid sister. These memories are a true testament to the beautiful life provided to him by his most loving parents.
A graduate of Averill Park High School in 1993, Rob served much of his career in the field of Public Service and Security holding management positions at OTB, Arch Wireless, and most recently working for the New York State Department of Homeland Security.
An amazing and loving father, Rob’s greatest joy in life was his son, Andrew. Whether coaching in the dugout or rooting on the sidelines, Rob’s devotion to Andrew was everlasting. He was and always will be Andrew’s biggest fan. All of the wonderful qualities Rob exemplified each day as a true gentleman live on through his son.
One of Rob’s biggest passions was his love of sports both as an athlete and fan. The most loyal New York Yankees and Dallas Cowboys fan from a young age, his allegiances never swayed. He enjoyed vacationing at the ocean, visiting the Saratoga Race Track, collecting sports and movie memorabilia, spending time with his family, and spoiling his niece/Goddaughter, Mara. Whether singing Frank Sinatra, quoting classic movie lines, or living up to his high school “class chatterbox” designation, he had the ability to make anyone smile. Rob will always be remembered for his charming wit, and above all, his kind and generous heart that had an impact on everyone who knew him. He is unforgettable.
He is survived by his son, Andrew; parents, Ronald and Patricia Campano; sister Tricia (Scott) Chizek; niece/Goddaughter Mara Chizek, and so many loving extended family and friends. The family would like to thank Dr. Vincent Carsillo and Dr. Michael Gallichio of Capital District Renal Physicians for their exemplary care and friendship over the past sixteen years. They would also like to acknowledge and commend all of the doctors, nurses, and staff at the Albany Medical Center Intensive Care Unit. The amazing outpouring of support from family and friends is so much appreciated and evidence of how much Rob was truly loved.
Donations may be made in his memory to the National Kidney Foundation or Northeast Kidney Foundation. Please also consider becoming an organ donor in Rob’s memory. A Celebration of Life service will be held in the Summer 2022.
