Douglas Colin Campbell

June 22, 1956 - May 31, 2003

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. Born in New Westminster, B.C. on June 22, 1956, son of Irmgard and the late Neil Campbell. Moved to Kenora in 1958, Doug grew up in Keewatin and attended Keewatin Public School, continuing on to Lakewood Secondary School. Doug was employed by the Department of Highways for over 10 years and guided on the Grace Anne for approximately 8 years.

After fulfilling his dream of building his own log home, Doug followed his passion and created Campbell Log Art Industries. His talent for story telling and love for the great outdoors was known by everyone whose life he touched. His love for country music, sled dogs, fishing, and hunting were enjoyed to the end, but most of all, his dedication to his wife and family will live in the hearts and memories of all his loved ones forever. Doug was a man of many words, but his appreciation for the simple things in life was truly an inspiration.

Doug was predeceased by his father, Neil, his grandparents Herman and Wanda Plohman, grandparents Dave and Elise Campbell and father in-law Howard Dowswell.

Doug will be sorely missed by his wife Sandra (nee Dowswell), daughter Heather, son Neil, and their mother Lisa Cameron, Mother Irmgard Campbell, Brothers Stewart (Karen), Jim (Donna) and Ian (Marci), Mother in-law Jean Doswell, Brother in-laws Rob Dowswell (Deb), Rick Dowswell (Gerry), Don Dowswell (Natalie), Sister in-law Susan Poulin (Paul) all of Thunder Bay. Also many nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles and friends.

Funeral Services will be held Wednesday, June 4, 2003 at 2:30 pm at the Kenora Community Funeral Home with the Reverend Hugh Matheson officiating. Dan Jorgenson will deliver the eulogy. Viewing Tuesday June 3, 2003 between 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm

Pall bearers will be Ron White, Todd Sharples, John Contini, Reg Porcher, Franklin Plohman and Gary Fish.

'There are gains for all our losses
There are balms for all our pains
But when youth from us departs
It takes something from our hearts
And never comes again.'

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the heart and stroke foundation.

Jane Jackson

February 14, 1954 - May 28, 2003
