Harold Stanley Campbell

December 17, 1916 - February 7, 2016


Harold S. Campbell
Harold S. Campbell was born on December 17, 1916 in Spanish Town, Jamaica. He died peacefully February 7, 2016 at the age of 99-years-old.
Harold was the loving husband of Olive Campbell, who died on July, 28, 2013. He met Olive at a beach in Jamaica after World War II, during which he served in the RAF. He was the consummate husband, following his motto of “Keep the home fires burning” by lovingly caring for Olive during her illness. They were married for 64 years.
Harold was the father of Stephen, Richard, and John. He had two grandchildren, Olivia and Brendan.
After immigrating to Canada and living in Ontario, the family moved to Nelson in the mid 1950’s. Harold worked until retirement as a land surveyor for the Department of Highways. He was very proud of his public service.
Harold made the Kootenay’s his home. He loved camping, hiking to Kokanee Glacier, and swimming at Champion Lakes. He particularly loved Ainsworth Hot Springs and was a regular customer until 96 years old.
Harold was an avid motorcyclist. After retirement, he traveled throughout North America and Mexico, receiving a commendation from BMW motorcycles for riding over 100,000 miles. He was proud to be one of the first to get his motorcycle on the road after Winter and one of the last to put it away in the Fall. At Ainsworth, they knew Spring had arrived when Harold showed up on his motorcycle for a swim. He rode until he was 96 years old.
Harold loved music. He was blessed with a wonderful singing voice and was always willing to share his gift with others.
Harold experienced adversity in life, but faced it with humility, integrity, and grit. He kept an open mind and was able to adapt and overcome significant personal challenges. In this regard, he was a true inspiration as he strove to be the best Christian, husband, father, and friend humanly possible.
Harold’s faith in God was his foundation. He never missed an opportunity to share his faith with others. He was a member of the Salvation Army and, in his later years a member of The First Baptist Church.
In his last years, Harold was a resident of Jubilee Manor. He was very appreciative of the care he received. The family would like to thank the staff for their compassionate and dignified care.
A memorial service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at First Baptist Church, Fairview. Online condolences may be expressed at www.thompsonfs.ca. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Thompson Funeral Service Ltd.
