It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Edward Cosmos Campbell on Friday, May 1, 2020 at QEII Hospital, Halifax.

Born on June 13, 1953 in Sydney, Eddie was the son of the late Cosmos and Mae (Napman) Campbell.

Eddie had a long career as a truck driver where many of his friends fondly referred to him as ‘Clunker’ or ‘Gumboot’. His favorite pastime was spending time with his friends at Tartan Downs and working with horses. His children and grandchildren were his pride and joy, for he could often be heard telling stories about them. Eddie will be missed by all who knew him.

Eddie leaves behind his wife of 46 years, Sharon (MacArthur) Campbell; children, Eddie (Jennifer), Jolene and Shelley (Colin) Vickers; grandchildren, Kelsey (Nyles), Rebecca, Ashton, Chloe, Keagan, Alexis and his little buddy, Samson. Eddie is also survived by his siblings, Sandra, Heather (Dave), Carolyn, Sherry (Sandy), Clifford, Kevin (Chrissy), Emma (Gordon) and Blaine (Margie); sister-in-law, Cathy Campbell; as well many nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents, Eddie was predeceased by brothers, John (Nancy), Bernie and Ritchie.

Due to social distancing, there will be a private family viewing only. Memorial service to celebrate the life of Edward Campbell will be held at Pier Community Funeral Home, Whitney Pier when circumstances permit.

Interment will take place in Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks.

Donations in memory of Eddie, may be made to Heart & Stroke Foundation or charity of one’s choice.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.
