Obituary

CAMPBELL, George Alexander
With great sadness we said goodbye to George Alexander Campbell who passed peacefully at the Brantford General Hospital on Sunday June 28, 2020, in his 93rd year. Predeceased by his beloved wife Jean in 2019 and his eldest daughter Lynne in 2000. Loving father of Bill (Catherine) and Maureen. Loved and cherished by grandchildren Jeff, Jonathan (Lori), Jennifer, Christopher, Jordan, Ben, Maddie and great-grandfather of Weston and Hadley. George grew up on the family farm and entered into the family dairy business full time in 1947 after graduating from school. Together with his brother Don, they purchased all the shares from their father John in the early 1960’s and the business name was changed to Brant Dairy Co. Ltd. George continued managing the dairy as president and it grew and flourished until being sold in 1995. George’s achievements and accomplishments in the Brantford area have been many and he has been recognized for the numerous contributions that he has made to this community, in particular to the Brantford General Hospital. He gave years of commitment to the Brant Community Healthcare System as a long time member of the Brantford General Hospital’s Board of Governors, raising millions for the Foundation. He was also recognized for his achievements by the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation and was presented with the Dr. J.A.D. Marquis Award. George served on the Board of Governors at McMaster University. He was also an original founder of the Boys and Girls Club of Brantford and has had a seat on their board since its inception. As a longtime standing member and past president of the Rotary Club, George had researched and visited numerous Boys and Girls Clubs around the province before plans were put in motion to open the club in Brantford. He was a former Director of the Brantford Regional Chamber of Commerce as well as past President of the Brantford Jaycees and a past President of the Brant Curling Club, where he curled for over 65 years. George was also recognized as an official ambassador for the City of Brantford’s Economic Development Department. He was an avid sportsman, playing basketball, baseball, football and golf. George coached minor league baseball and hockey for many years and went on to referee University football. George has been a tireless volunteer continuing his entire life to give to the community through his ongoing involvement and selfless attitude. Many thanks and much appreciation to the very compassionate Nurses and staff in Palliative Care as well as Dr. Lucie Gregoire and Dr. Jeff Manning and the Brantford General Hospital. As per George’s wishes, cremation will take place and with the current restrictions there will be no visitation or service. If desired, donations can be made to the Boys and Girls Club of Brantford or to the Brantford General Hospital Foundation.

I really didn’t know Mr Campbell very well, however that didn’t stop him from making a big impression on Patti and I. Before Patti and I were married, we were at one of her parent’s lively parties where we first met George and Jean. Unlike several other guests, the Campbells took a genuine interest in talking with us, despite we were the youngest couple to talk with at the party. Even just back in October 2019, I asked Mr Campbell if we could meet to advise me on fundraising techniques within the community. He never hesitated a moment to see me and I recall having this wonderful lunch at the Brantford Golf Club while he outlined the key points of fundraising. They say, “if you want to get something done, you give it to a busy person”. Well George must have been a very busy man as he did so much for the betterment of all citizens.
He was a pillar for healthcare in our community and will be greatly missed by so many.

Our sincere sympathies to the Campbell family.

My sincere condolences to the family. I worked for many years at the BGH where I first met George. He never missed leaving me chocolate treats at Christmas and Easter from Reid’s Chocolate even after I had left BGH they always found their way to my door with my initials on the envelope. I will miss him dearly.

He was like a second Dad to the three of us Papple kids. So many memories, he will be missed. When we were kids we always tagged along to go get the milk at the local farms in the tanker. We also got together for many barbeques on Forsythe Street, eating like kings. I hardly remember a time when we weren't together for these occasions. All our love to the family, Greg and Nicole. xoxo
