Born October 8, 1952 in Washington, DC, Rab was the son of the late Peter and Carol Camplair. He volunteered with the Cabin John Volunteer Fire Department at age 16 before he began his career as a Professional Firefighter with Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Services. He retired from MCFRS after 31 years and drove a Special Needs school bus for Frederick County Public Schools for another 7 years. He also volunteered for the 4-H at the Montgomery County Fair for many years. Rab loved collecting things, and he loved animals. He put out hummingbird feeders and petted horses, dogs, cats and goats whenever they were around. He also was an avid gardener and had an impressive garden at his townhouse.
Rab is survived by his daughter, Dr. Macey Camplair & fiancé Luke Morrow; stepson James McGlaughlin & wife Brittany; sisters, Susan Ferarra & husband David Lawrence, Karen Camplair, Annette Camplair and Lisa Camplair; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and other relatives.
