    Growing up in Cranbrook, BC, I fondly remember Colin and the whole Campbell family as being wonderfully warm people with hearts of gold. As an adult, my husband & I were fortunate to carry that friendship forward with many good times recalled. Colin will be missed dearly. He laughed easily and was always generous with his fireside stories & wit. Our thoughts are with Iris, Stephen & Shelley.

    Dear Iris,
    I am so sorry to hear that Colin has passed away. He was a great man. He was also a very lucky man to have such a lovely wife for 46 years. I will never forget the fun times that we had when we were neighbors.
