COUNTDOWN TO 100 AS SIR SPEC CAMPEN READIES TO CELEBRATE HIS SECOND HUNDRED YEARS!
Our prestigious knight and historian just celebrated his 97th birthday last Saturday, August 5th born that day in 1920. Donald O. Campen, Jr. was knighted two years ago by his associates of The Lincoln Studio for the fine arts and filmed production and this dubbing was welcomed by his colleagues at The Virginia Production and his family and many thousand friends he made in almost one hundred years! England awards this title to men and women with far less accomplishments and basic nobility than what our dear friend Spec Campen possesses. Recently, Spec met with illness but his lance of faith and fortitude combined with the onslaught of prayers for his recovery shows this man's tenacity So, in less than three years we will celebrate Spec's Second Hundred Years because he is much needed and loved! HAPPY 97th BIRTHDAY DEAR SIR SPEC CAMPEN!!! - Richie Burriesci blessed to be called his friend
