CAMPBELL, Russell Alexander

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our father, husband and grandpa. Russ was born October 1, 1932 in Lucky Lake, SK and passed away peacefully at Abbotsford General Hospital on Thursday, August 20, 2015. Russ was predeceased by his sisters Mildred and Lillian. He leaves to mourn his loving wife of 60 years, Olga (Ollie) as well as his two sons Doug (Cora) and Calvin (Shannon). He will also be greatly missed by his grandchildren Laura and Alexander and Cora’s daughter, Maegan. During a successful career with the B.C. Forest Service spanning 35 years, Russ and Ollie met many life-long friends when they lived in various places in B.C. Russ and Ollie enjoyed a wonderful long retirement traveling in their R.V. to Alaska, Mexico as well as across Canada and the U.S. They later chose to spend their winters as Snowbirds in Yuma, Arizona often traveling with friends from the Forest Service. A service for Russ will be held at Woodlawn Mt. Cheam Funeral Home, 45865 Hocking Ave., Chilliwack on Friday, September 11, 2015 at 1:00 pm.
