In memory of Bob Campbell

It is with an incredible sense of disbelief and sorrow that we inform you that AANR Western Canada Member Trustee and AANR Finance Chair Bob Campbell has passed away. Bob was in a car accident while returning home from a fundraiser where he served on the board for Big Hill Haven Women's Shelter in Cochrane, Alberta.

Bob was a generous man. He was a wise man. He was a supportive man. He was a trusted respected advisor to so many people. Bob had a passion for volunteering and being a part of many organizations, from Alcoholics Anonymous, to the Cochrane Curling Club, Cochrane Ringette and the American Association for Nude Recreation. He was also a volunteer parent for his dog Remmy who is part of the Pacific Assistance Dogs Society program. Together they were involved in the Calgary Board of Education reading initiative at Eric Harvie School where they would read with students.

Bob was a life member of AANR. Bob commenced his AANR service, in 2006, shortly after becoming an AANR member. Initially, he served AANR-Western Canada as Treasurer, later President. He has been the AANR-Western Canada Trustee for the past four years and AANR Finance Committee Chair for six years.

As an AANR Trustee, Bob consistently operated with integrity and proficiency. As Finance Chair, Bob worked to clean up and organize AANR’s financial records—no small task, as it turned out. Under Bob’s direction, AANR’s monetary resources were re-configured to provide a healthy return, a practice that has improved AANR’s financial stability. Bob did not limit his financial analysis to the current month, quarter, or year. He looked far into the future and planned accordingly, all to AANR’s benefit.

On his bucket list he was able to scratch off many things. Bob’s most recent adventure was a three-week trip to Africa where he was able to capture photos of beautiful wildlife.

He left behind a family who loved him deeply, son Bryan Campbell and daughter Robyn Bujold, son in law Jason Bujold, daughter in law Melanie Mileham Campbell and six grandchildren who all loved him beyond words. He was the most involved, committed father and grandfather.

The most valuable gift he gave to those he loved, was his time. He never missed a grandchild’s ringette game, boxing match, kids’ rehearsals, school events, birthdays and so much more. He always attended his son’s heavy metal shows as their resident photographer and a very proud father.

In life he loved to help others so in death the family would like to help him make a difference one last time. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made through this
GoFundMe page
and all monies will go to help the fundraising efforts of the Cochrane Women's Shelter, Big Hill Haven, in Bob's name.

Please keep your thoughts and prayers with Bob’s family and with his many friends who will miss him.
