Date of Death

April 20, 2017

Our beloved Nino Campobello left the Earth on his journey home on April 20, 2017.

Born in The Netherlands on July 20, 1998, Nino’s spirit is that of a Shining Star that will continue to light up the world. He was a Force of Nature who passionately lived a life of extremes, facing and overcoming many difficulties and experiencing great joys along his life’s journey.. working his way to a final place of Love for God. Nino faced the shadows to bring his Light to the world through his love, friendship and his music. Nino touched and continues to touch deeply the lives of so many people and made many friends around the world.

At just 18 years and 9 months, Nino left behind a legacy of songs in both English and Dutch (with Spanish and other languages thrown in) that carry his life story in raw and real way few artists dare, especially at such a young age. These songs will carry his voice and message to help and encourage others. So brave, so strong, so gifted, so loving. We are so grateful for the 2 years we were gifted during which Nino lived with us in Santa Barbara, CA, from February 2015 to December 2016.

Nino was a brilliant, beautiful young man, shredding rapper, Native Warrior (Huichol and Mayo/Yaqui), goofball comedian, poetic multi-lingual lyricist, natural performer, true homie and friend, wonderful son, loving brother, nephew, grandson and cousin.. no words can touch our love for him. Nino attended San Marcos High School, and he loved children and helping those in need.

Nino’s family here below are his father Emiliano Campobello, mother Ellis Verhoeven, sister Laura Campobello, brother Gabriel Campobello, grandma Celina Andrade, aunt Jennifer Campbell, cousins Celene and Anthony Garcia, uncle and aunt David and Ali Andrade, great-aunt and uncle Suzanne and John Vollaire, great-uncle Juan Castillo, great-uncle Ron Andrade, and the Verhoeven family.

Nino also has many he considered family in The Netherlands including the Koopman family, Linda Wagner, Nando and family, Jay and family, and Bobby.

Thank you all for the role you played in Nino’s life.

Nino, you are always in our hearts.. we love you forever.

Until we meet again.. Rest in Peace mijo, xoxo
