Joseph William Camplin, 42, of Northfield passed away Sunday, January 6, 2019, after a long and courageous battle with mental illness. He leaves behind many bereaved family members and friends.

Joseph was born on January 23, 1976, in St. Paul to Harry and Margaret Camplin. After graduating from Forest Lake Senior High School he earned his Bachelors Degree from the University of Minnesota and a Masters Degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato.

Joseph had a love of learning and a great passion for many things. Namely, he was an avid cyclist and Star Wars enthusiast. He enjoyed spending time outside, whether skiing, hiking, or simply walking the dog. He will be remembered for his compassionate spirit, supportive nature and seemingly photographic memory for current events and trivia-like factoids, which he had a knack for unexpectedly contributing to conversations.

Joseph was preceded in death by his father, Harry. He is survived by his mother Margaret and his sisters Kathryn and Jennifer.

Graveside services will be held Friday, January 11, 2019, beginning at 11:30 AM at the Nerstrand City Cemetery. Arrangements by Bierman Funeral Home. biermanfuneralhome.com.

    I attend the friendship house in Faribault that he went to as well. I remember joe as a kind, helpful, fun man who loved being outside Participating in activities. I remember the last time I was with him at a friendship house activity, we went snowshoeing at the nature center. We had fun talking to each other. I’ll miss him a lot. You’re all in my prayers.
