Gabriel Campos, 19, was born in Fargo on February 11, 2000 to Jessica Nyland and Abel Campos. Sadly, Gabe passed away July 27, 2019 at Sanford Health. Gabe grew up in West Fargo where he was always surrounded by his many cousins and many more amazing friends. Gabe loved to travel and swim. He would never pass up an opportunity to hang out at the lakes. Gabe enjoyed sports, he was always up for a game of basketball, football, soccer and skateboarding. When indoors he liked to watch movies and play video games. Most recently Gabe spent alot of his time with his best friend, his "therapy" dog, Leia. Gabe graduated from WFHS class of 2018. During high school he played as a wide receiver for the WF Packers football team. Gabe finished his senior year online due to his diagnosis of leukemia in Aug 2017. After a successful battle with cancer, Gabe had a bone marrow transplant in May 2018. Unfortunately 4 months later Gabe developed Hemolytic Anemia and in June 2019, on top of the Anemia, Gabe developed a lung infection that became fatal. Gabe will be remembered for so much more than his illness though. He was a fun loving guy who touched the hearts of many. He was always so full of life, love and sarcasm. He had the most contagious laugh and was naturally entertaining. He was a brave soul who was never scared to do or try anything. Gabe was an avid Star Wars fan and his favorite football team was the Seattle Seahawks. He loved comedy, especially his own jokes and pranks. Gabe loved to laugh. Gabe was the best big brother to Calvin, he was the first grandchild to his Grandma Tammie and will always hold a special place in her heart. He was a great friend to many and was blessed with an enormous extended family who helped raise, love, and support him. Gabe made us all laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger and live life a little better. We were all blessed to be able to share our lives with Gabe. He will be forever loved and greatly missed. A special thank you to Boulger Funeral Home and Pastor Randy for this special service, to our amazing community that have shown us so much love and support and to the amazing staff at Roger Maris Clinic/Sanford Health, who have become part of our extended family and helped Gabe fight every step of the way. You are all welcome to join us in celebrating Gabe’s life Saturday, August 10th at 1pm, Boulger Funeral Home Fargo.

  1. I am so very sorry to hear this. Although I did not know Gabe, I knew some family and have been following his struggle for some time. Leukemia is a devil that has taken Gabriel too soon. From personal experience I know much of what those close to Gabe have been going through. For that, and so much more, I will pray for you. If there is ever a time you need to talk to someone who has gone through similar struggles with leukemia, please reach out.

  2. Gabe- you were a true warrior, fighting a battle no one could begin to imagine. Your mom was by your side every step of the way….. Rest In Heavenly peace – you earned your wings. You were such an inspiration! May your family find comfort at this difficult time….

  3. From the get Gabe had a place in our family, through decades of time and thousands of miles, call it chance call our lords plan, for 2 brothers grand kids (Abel Campos and Lorenzo Leal jr) to meet on a job at federal beef.
