With heavy hearts, we regret to announce the passing of Ritchie Campbell, age 62, on Sunday, April 15, 2018 at home.

Born on April 17, 1955 in Sydney, Ritchie was the son of the late Cosmos and Mae (Napman) Campbell.

Ritchie loved working as an auto mechanic. Over the years he worked at Powers Trucking, Bridgeport Paving and doing body work and painting cars with Joe Bragg and Windy MacDonald, as well as working at Eastside Auto Salvage. Richie enjoyed working out in the yard doing mechanical work and welding floors and rocker panels in cars. He will be remembered by his family and friends for loving the outdoors and helping those in need.

Ritchie leaves behind his wife, Cathy; children, Kyle, Justin (Laureen) and Ashley (Gordie); pappa’s pride and joy, Karter and Kaelyn; siblings, Eddie (Sharon), Kevin (Chris), Clifford, Blaine (Margie), Sandra, Heather (Dave), Caroline, Sherry (Sandy) and Emma (Gordon); as well as many nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents, Ritchie was predeceased by brothers, John (Nancy), Bernie and daughter, Brittany in infancy.
