He was predeceased by sisters, Shirley, Nellie, Hattie, Edith and Wilda; brothers, Clayton, Russell, Carl, Sanford, Emmett and Ross. Campbell worked for over 30 years at Superior Propane where he formed many friendships driving his big yellow truck and had an abundance of stories of his travels to share with his family. Campbell loved hockey. He was a great supporter of his grandchildren’s teams, the Scotians (where you would see him selling tickets at the mall for the team), the Crushers (thank you David McCarthy for being his hockey buddy) and of course his NHL team The Chicago Blackhawks.
