It is with great sadness that we are saying goodbye to our loving husband, father, grandpa, great-grandpa, and brother; David Allen Campbell.
Dave passed away June 4th, 2014 at the Royal Jubilee
Hospital, where he had been fighting heart disease, with his loving wife of 47 years Karen at his side. He was pre-deceased by his youngest son Steven and his parents Allen and
Dave was born on July 27, 1945 in Edmonton AB. He made his home in Grande Prairie, where he raised his family. Dave was a large part of the Minor Hockey Association and coached both of his sons teams. He took great pride in
mentoring and encouraging his young players. Dave was an avid fisherman, hunter, and loved spending weekends at the family cabin. The last twenty years have been spent on Vancouver Island. During this time he has made many lasting memories running his business, and enjoying the beauty the island has to offer.
Dave could always find a way to lift your spirits and make you laugh. He gave the very best bear hugs and would sit for hours as his granddaughters would “do papas hairs.” He was very
kindhearted and giving, accepting all for who they were. Dave was especially proud of and loved his kids, grandkids, and
great-grandbabies. He will be dearly missed by many people.
Dave is survived by his wife Karen, son Brad, daughters Alana and Erin, grandkids Kris, Amber and Hailee, and
great-grandbabies Karder and Camryn. Also his brother
Danny Campbell (Barbara), and sisters Colleen Belanger, Sharon Adams (Ervin), Shawnee Thew (Ken), and Beth Albrecht (Jim).
A celebration of life will be held at the Lions Hall in
Port McNeill at 2pm on Saturday, June 14th. Please join us in helping say goodbye to an amazing man. In lieu of flowers we ask you to make donations to either The Heart Foundation or The Kidney Foundation in loving memory of Dave Campbell.
