Alexander Malcolm Campbell

December 10, 1916 – February 25, 2010

Our loving father Alex passed away peacefully at the age of 93 years, predeceased by his beloved friend and wife of 64 years, Margaret, his parents Joseph and Agnes Campbell and his eldest sister Nessie. He is survived by his two brothers Joseph Campbell of Vancouver and Jim Campbell (Phyllis) of Winfield and his sister Beverly Aveling of Vancouver. Forever loved and remembered by his four daughters Jean Tinling, Beverly Duregon (Silvano), Nancy McEwen (John), Betty Kramer and his son Alexander Malcolm Campbell Jr. (Patti) and his proud legacy of 16 grandchildren including Chris (Colleen), Susan, Mark (Marie), Kerry, Audra, Kelly, Shaun, Ryan (Krista), Scott, Bobby (Laura), Lindsay (Brad), Chris, Curtis, Kathleen, Tara, Tyler and 10 beautiful great grandchildren. Alex was born and raised in Vancouver. In 1944 he joined the army then transferred to the RCAF. After his discharge, he worked as a salesman with Ferguson and Hart Tobacco Wholesaler and Planters Nut and Chocolate Company. In his travels he was captivated by the beauty of the Okanagan Valley and returned with his family to establish his own tobacco and wholesale business. He opened Bert Henry (Kelowna) Ltd. in 1952 and continued to work until its close in 2003. Alex enjoyed his many business acquaintances and friends. In 2004 Alex received recognition for attaining his 50 year membership in the Masonic Lodge. He was a quiet gentleman who was known for his hard work, unique sense of humor and one who cared deeply for his family. Our family would like to thank the staff at Hawthorne Park Orchard Manor for their loving care of Alex.
