It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that the family of Gordon Benjamin Campbell “Ben” announce his passing on Friday November 18, 2022, in the South Shore Regional Hospital, Bridgewater, NS, surrounded by loved ones by his side. Born in St. John, NB, he was the son of Gordon and Lois (Bright) Campbell.
Ben was a kind soul, loved spending time with his family, chatting with anyone willing to strike up a conversation, especially sports related. A die-hard Red Wings Fan and Sports enthusiast, his proudest moments were watching his boys play baseball and hockey. He cherished his time with close friends from far and wide, to many to list. Digby, where he met the love of his life was his second home where many fond relationships were made over the years.
We will miss our loving, caring, patient, hardworking, dependable Husband, Father and Grampy. You will forever be in our hearts and your memory will live on through our conversations and in the love and respect you taught us to have for others.
Ben leaves behind his soulmate and best friend, Joan (Titus) Campbell; his children, Mike, Jamie (Tina), and Robbie (Rachelle); his grandchildren, Jacob, Brendan, Benji, Sophie, and Kaylee; and several nieces and nephews.
