CAMPBELL, Kenneth Wylie

March 3, 1930 – February 25, 2013

Kenneth Wylie Campbell passed away at Santuari Hospice on Monday, February 25, 2013, at the age of 82 years.

Ken went to be with his Lord and Savior and his wife, Lorraine. Ken was born on March 3, 1930 in Rossburn, Manitoba and grew up in the area around Riding Mountain National Park. Ken graduated with a BSc. in Geology from Brandon University in 1956. Ken met Lorraine Huber of Balgonie, Saskatchewan in 1956 and was married on May 4, 1957. They moved to Calgary six months later and have resided in the area most of those years with the exception of the two years they spent in Australia in the early 1980’s. Ken felt blessed to be able to live in the Bearspaw area for many years surrounded by nature and animals.

Ken began his career in the mining industry but found his passion in the oil and gas industry. He began with Sun Oil but his entrepreneurial spirit led him to start his own oil and gas company, which he continued to run until his passing.

Ken served on the Board of Directors of the Lutheran Welfare Society (now known as Bethany Care Society) for over twenty years. During that time he served in various capacities including Treasurer, Vice-Chairman, Chairman of the Building Committee for both Airdrie and Cochrane, Co-Chairman of Bethany Village, Chairman of Bethany Calgary, and Chairman of Bethany Cochrane. Bethany Life-Line was established during his time on the Board.

Ken’s Christian faith was a foundation for his life, and raising his family. He also served his church homes (Highwood Lutheran, St. Peter’s Lutheran – Australia, Advent Lutheran, Prince of Peace Lutheran) in various capacities from board member, to elder, to usher.

Kenneth is survived by four children and their spouses, James (Cleopatra), Jeffrey (Janet), Karen (Donovan), and Lisa (Douglas). He is also survived by twelve grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, his sister Winnifred, his brothers Russell (Adeline) and Glen (Dorothy), and many nieces and nephews.
