It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Albert George Campbell on May 5, 2023, at the age of 86. If you were lucky enough to have known Albert, you know that he lived life to the fullest, was the life of the party and left his mark on this world like no other! He was a father, husband, papa, great papa, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, daycare dad, and friend. Albert put family above all else.
Albert was born on March 17, 1937, in Cardross, Saskatchewan and grew up on the family farm. Albert later moved to Moose Jaw and was a dairy farmer, breadman and milkman, singer sewing machine salesman and owned and operated Town and Country Upholstery, Custom Cover Upholstery and Campbell’s Spirit Brewing.
Albert was predeceased by his parents Agnes and Roy, first wife Frances, infant grand daughter Ashley, siblings Colin, Charlie, and Ruth, mother-in law Ida, and brothers-in-law Maurice and Lacy.
He is survived by wife of 36 years Sandi, children Darrell and Diane, grandchildren Amanda (James), Kyle, Kate-lyn (Tyson), and great grandchildren Landon, Hayden, Hudson, Brandon (Jessica), Logan, sister Mary, sisters-in law, Elaine, Carol, and Shirley (Leo) and countless nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Albert was heavily involved in the business community and served as President of the Moose Jaw Chamber of Commerce, was a member of the Jaycees, South Saskatchewan Wildlife Association, and played an integral role in bringing the Ladies World Curling Championship to Moose Jaw in 1983.
Albert’s many talents included singing, playing the banjo, guitar, and fiddle. He was an avid horseman, bowler, and square dancer. He was known for his boisterous sense of humour, quick wit and always had a joke to tell. He loved nothing more than to spend time with family and friends, was an excellent cook and went on many a trail rides with the Bowery Boys.
We are grateful that his family was able to be with him near the end and were able to say their final goodbyes.
The family would like to express our deepest appreciation for the kind and compassionate care Dad received from all the home care nurses over the past few years, and the doctors and nurses at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Hospital during his final days. Particularly, Dr. Pilon who showed tremendous care and compassion.
A come and go celebration of Albert’s life will take place on Saturday May 27, 2023, at the Shriners Masonic Temple 1755 Main St. N. from 1:00 – 4:00 pm.
In living memory of Albert, a memorial planting will be made by W.J. Jones & Son Ltd. Please sign the memorial register at website: www.wjjonesandson.com (Obituaries). Dayna Chamberlain - Funeral Director
