WILLIAM ARTHUR (Bill) CAMPBELL (nee Lawson)

William Arthur (Bill) Campbell of Grand Forks, BC, passed away at Ivy House on October 24, 2013, at the age of 90. He will be happy to rejoin Norma, his wife of 69 years, who passed away in September of this year. He is lovingly survived by his son Robin Campbell of Edmonton, AB; his daughter Kathy (Craig) Sprout of Beaumont, AB; grandsons Joshua Sprout of Edmonton, AB and Evan Sprout of Beaumont, AB; and numerous special friends and relatives. Born in Vancouver, BC in August 1923, and raised in Haney, BC, he joined the RCAF during WWII, then became an electrician and worked for the BC Government, retiring to Grand Forks over 30 years ago. A proud member of the Mason’s, a staunch defender of the environment, and a dedicated volunteer wherever he was needed—from the Grand Forks Rural Fire Department when he first moved to the area, to the Red Cross in more recent years—he always enjoyed a cup of coffee and a good chat. Rest in peace, Dad; you will be missed. Cremation has taken place; no funeral by request. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of one’s choice.
