Kenneth CAMPBELL

CAMPBELL – Kenneth It is with heartfelt sadness we announce that Kenneth Campbell passed away peacefully on February 20, 2010 in his home, surrounded by his loving family. Ken was born on December 14, 1927 to Donald “Dan” and Eva Campbell and was raised in Bethune, Saskatchewan. Ken and Grace were married on August 12, 1950 in Regina, Saskatchewan and had two children, Grant and Brenda. Ken worked for Imperial Oil for 38 years, starting in the mailroom and working his way up to Department Manager for Western Canada. He was transferred to Edmonton in 1960 and retired in 1982. Ken and Grace moved to Kelowna in 1986. Ken was a long term member in the Lutheran Church, Ascension Lutheran in Edmonton and Grace Lutheran in Kelowna. He was extensively involved with the Good Samaritan Society and was on the board of directors on several different occasions from 1962 to 2009. Ken was always called on for his knowledge in many aspects of daily life and volunteered his time and talent with endeavors, such as building eight houses in Regina, fundraising for the Red Cross, being on the Church Council, teaching Sunday school and building dollhouses for his grandchildren and for charity. He was known as Mr. Fixit and could often be found down the street helping a neighbor. Ken is survived by his loving wife, Grace, his son, Grant (Linda), daughter Brenda (George) Berger, seven grandchildren, Abby (Tom) Griener, Gwen and Laura Campbell, Kyle and Thomas Berger, Natalie and Justine Burton, great-granddaughter, Alice Griener, sister Gwen Brierley, and brothers John (Pearl), and Don (Kay).
