This photo was sent in by his parents, Jay and Joanna Campbell.

---- Cody lives in Minnesota and was injured on a job site while working in Iowa for Railworks Track Systems and died from his injuries a week later in Rochester, Minnesota. While a work team was pounding in rail spikes, a piece of metal split off the rail and ricocheted backwards 20 feet and struck Cody in the neck, while he was working on something else. The piece of metal severed a facial artery and lodged in the floor of his mouth. We feel it was a freak accident, but it is our opinion it was the lack of quick response of medical care that caused his death. He got to the emergency room in less than 10 minutes, but they made him sit down and fill out paperwork before seeing him, not realizing the gravity of his injury. So, we feel it is the hospitals worry of whose paying that cost us our son’s life. We did find out that Railworks was issued two Citations from Iowa OSHA for serious violations. One for not furnishing and a place of employment free from recognized hazards that could likely cause death or serious physical harm to employees and the other for hand tools or equipment were not kept in a safe condition.

OH and we cant forget his love of mowing the lawn on the farm. We always teased him about that. Mom would call me up and say Guess what Dad is doing and I would say mowing lawn. He served in the Vietnam war, and was awarded the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star. There is so much I could say about my Dad. He was not only my Dad, but he was my friend. On February 21st,2014 the world lost a wonderful man and Heaven received an wonderful Angel.
