Condolence from Debbie Davis on June 8th, 2020 8:18 pm

Sybil and family, I was sorry to hear about the loss of your Father. Dads play an integral part in our lives, and although he has physically left you, he walks with you each and every day. He will never be lost from your hearts.

Condolence from Lauren MacDonald on June 8th, 2020 10:11 pm

There are not many people who can warm your heart just by seeing them from a distance. Granddad was one of them.

I never had the pleasure to know my own grandfathers but Granddad was embraced by many (including me) as a pseudo grandparent- a role he moulded into with out hesitation.

I am deeply saddened to hear the news of his passing and, I know I am one of many.

Lots of people are revered as “sweet”, “kind”, “caring”… Granddad always took the cake when it came to honouring these descriptors.

I could speak about him endlessly, from the sprawling smile that was always upon his face to the warm welcomes whenever you came in to the door but, in the simplest terms, I am so lucky to have known him.

All of my love,


Condolence from Jaymie Mackewicz on June 8th, 2020 10:11 pm

So sorry to hear of Grandads passing, he was a great and kind-hearted soul. He will be greatly missed by everyone that was lucky enough to have the pleasure of meeting him.
Sending all our love,
Jaymie and Trevor

Condolence from Peter and Sally Landy on June 9th, 2020 7:41 am

Condolence from Ann, Brenda and Family on June 9th, 2020 10:05 am

Margaret, Sybil and Family

An honest man here lies at rest
The friend of man, the friend of truth,
The friend of age, and guide of youth:
Few hearts like his, with virtue warm’d,
Few heads with knowledge so informed:
If there’s another world, he lives in bliss;
If there is none, he made the best of this.

Robert Burns

Condolence from Sara Yellowlees on June 9th, 2020 10:30 am

I am so sorry to hear this sad news. Grandad will be greatly missed by all those who were lucky enough to meet him. He would always put a smile on my face when I would see him. He brightened the room with his smile and warmed it with his kindness. I am truly lucky to have had the pleasure to spend time with him.

All my Love

Condolence from Edna Clark on June 11th, 2020 4:32 pm

My heart is breaking for all of you. Everyone who met Jimmy Campbell described him as a lovely man. He was kind, thoughtful and oh so full of life, always impeccably dressed and with a twinkle in his eye. Kirk and I got to enjoy many great times with Jim and Margaret in Florida and at home. He was so loved and respected by family and friends. His was certainly a life well lived and he will be greatly missed.
