Wilfred Hugh  Campbell

Born: March 27th, 1947

Passed on: May 4th, 2019

It is with sadness that we, the family of Wilfred Hugh Campbell, announce his peaceful passing at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital on Saturday May 4, 2019 at the age of 72. Born in Glace Bay on March 27, 1947, he was the son of the late Hugh and Ethel (Andrews) Campbell and grandson of the late Dan and Margaret (Smith) Campbell and John and Sarah Jane (MacDonald) Andrews.
Wilfred spent his life as a resident of Port Morien and worked in many provinces across Canada in his trade as a Red Seal Electrician for over 50 years. A member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), Locals 1852 and 1928, he was proud of his work on numerous construction and commissioning projects over the years and made many lifelong friendships. A kind and simple gentleman of few words but with a sharp wit, Wilfred loved war history and traveling to new places with family and will be missed for his recounting of family and community stories and his advocacy regarding issues of importance to the community.
Wilfred will be dearly missed by his wife, Linda (Butts) and daughter and son-in-law, Lindsay and Noel Peach, Upper Tantallon, NS. He will also be missed by brother, Jamie (Nicole), Halifax, NS and nieces, Margaret and Katie; aunts, Lorna MacDonald, Jean MacPherson, and Elizabeth Andrews; sisters-in-law, Sandra Matheson, Trudy (Stanley) MacKenzie, and Judy (Reggie) Amadio; bothers-in-law, Dave (Wilma) Butts, Terry (Florence) Butts, Bruce Butts, George (Gerri Lee) Butts, and Graham MacMullin, and many cousins, nieces and nephews, extended family, and friends.
Besides his parents and grandparents, Wilfred was predeceased by in-laws, George and Phyllis Butts; sister-in-law, Marge MacMullin; brother-in-law, Sandy Matheson; and several aunts and uncles.
The family would like to extend their gratitude to all members of the health care team for their care and compassion, including paramedics and staff and leadership who supported Wilfred during his stay at Cape Breton Regional Hospital’s Emergency Department, Units 4D and 4C, Coronary Care Unit, Intensive Care Unit, and An Cala. A special thank you to Dr. Klassen, Dr. Szabo, Dr. Hebb, and Dr. McCarville for your exceptional care and kindness and to the ICU and CCU teams for welcoming our family to participate as members of Wilfred’s care team.

Wilfred lived on his own terms and so, in keeping with his wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral service. Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of Patten Funeral Home, 71 Union Street, Glace Bay, NS. A private interment for family and close friends will take place at a later date.
Memorial donations may be made to the Intensive Care Unit of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital through the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation. Online condolences may be expressed to the family by visiting www.pattenfuneral.com.
