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.
