Obituary of William Campbell

CAMPBELL, William Alexander

Was born October 2, 1942 and passed away Saturday, July 3, 2021 at Sun Parlor Home in Leamington. Predeceased by his loving companion Marjorie Cohoe, his parents, Lyle Garth and Marjorie Jean (nee Fox) Campbell, brother Joey Douglas Campbell and niece Amanda Jo Campbell. Survived by his extended family, Gaye DeMers (Gerry) and Kandy Flood, his 3 children and grandchildren, sister Julie Beaul (Wayne) and sister-in-law Rosemary Campbell (Bob) as well as many nieces and nephews. Throughout his life, Bill ran a farm tiling business, worked in a furniture refinishing shop and also was employed at Weil's Canning Factory. Bill spent many hours building and remodeling the homes he lived in, and working in his garden along with Margie, and when the day was done, they enjoyed fishing off the dock at the cottage. Bill always enjoyed a lively conversation, with his unique sense of humour shining through, a glass of fine wine and a good book on history. In his later years, you could always pick Bill out of a crowd as he was known as "The Man with the Hat." In following Bill's wishes, a private graveside service will take place at Woodslee United Church Cemetery.
