It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Douglas Roy Campbell on February 1, 2013. Doug was born in Whitehorse, Yukon, on April 20, 1944 and was raised in Vancouver, B.C. Predeceased by his father Tommy, mother Dorothy and brother Edward, Doug resided in Nanaimo for most of his adult life.
Doug will be greatly missed by his sons, Mark (Donna) Campbell, Edward (Pam) Egan, and Steven (Shirl) Podgornick; his five grandchildren; his former wife Lyn Campbell, and his many friends.
His working years took him from gold dredging in the Yukon to Peru, S.A. and cities in between. In Nanaimo he was joint owner of Hollway Hi-Fi and TV and later became a realtor, working in both Nanaimo and Sidney, BC. After spending several years in Las Vegas, Doug returned to Nanaimo a few years ago to enjoy his retirement among his friends.
In respect of Doug’s wishes, no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations made to the Salvation Army would be appreciated.
