CAMPBELL, Robert (Bob) Charles

March 2, 1933 – August 29, 2012

Robert Charles Campbell of Red Deer Alberta passed away Wednesday, August 29, 2012, after an arduous battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

Bob was born in Hanna, AB on March 2, 1933 to the late Norman and Cora Campbell. He grew up in Morrin and attended high school in Drumheller and University in Calgary. Bob championed the Alberta entrepreneurial spirit. He worked in many industries in Alberta including oilfield, insurance, automobile and finance. He turned challenges into opportunities and loved nothing more than to celebrate the successes of his family, friends and fellow Albertans. Bob was the manager of Parkland Savings and Credit Union and served on many Credit Union Boards and Committees. He stepped down as manager in 1983 and became a partner with McInnis and Holloway Funeral Homes in Calgary until 2004. Bob enjoyed many activities with family and friends, attending a good Flames game, heading out to the pony chuck wagons or being at the cabin at Sylvan Lake. Everyone who knew Bob was touched by his optimism, humour and kindness. He will be sadly missed, never forgotten.

Bob is survived by his loving wife and best friend Dorothy; and his girls, Lori of Saanich, BC, Sandi of Red Deer and Carrie-Anne of Calgary. He is also survived by his cherished grandchildren, Travis (Trish) Gustafson of Red Deer, Alexandra (Mike) Hastings of Saanich, Carli Chalmers of Claresholm, Spencer Chalmers of Calgary, Curtis Chalmers of Red Deer, and William Campbell of Calgary; and great-granddaughters, Mercedes and Olivia Gustafson. Bob was predeceased by three infant siblings Douglas, Roy, MaryAnn; and by his sisters Norma Blakely and Cleo Poluck.

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at Parkland Funeral Home (6287 – 67A Street, Red Deer, AB) on Friday, September 7, 2012 from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.

    I send my sympathies to the entire family after hearing of Bob’s passing this past week. It has been sad to see his progression with the terrible sickness of Alzheimers, but I will always think of him as I knew him. He was a good neighbour, smiling and friendly, always ready to have a laugh. His leadership and personality were certainly an asset for the Parkland Savings and Credit Union.

    Dear Dorothy and family,
    I was saddened to hear of the passing of Bob, a friend who held a very special spot in the hearts of my folks, Joyce and Mac McArthur. A glint would come to Dad’s eye whenever he remembered and talked of the good times he and Bob had, forming and promoting Parkland Savings and Credit Union, the fun at the Annual Meetings, the satisfaction they felt as the Credit Union continued to grow. He and Mom reminisced often as they aged and their illnesses prgressed – remembering you and Bob and the others of Parkland. They often mentioned you and Bob and the girls. I met Bob at the Black Knight Inn one evening, not long after he had been diagnosed. He was with a gentleman that evening and we had a good chat about the good old days at Parkland Savings and some of the people we remembered. As I think of Mom and Dad, I will also remember Bob. Maybe they, and some of the others who went before, are together, having a reminisce about those “good old days”. My thoughts go to you all at this very difficult time.

    When I heard of Robert’s passing a song by Gene Autry came to me right away –

    “There’s a goldmine in the sky far away”

    God Bless you All!
