It is with heavy hearts and much sadness that we, the family, regret to announce the passing of John Hugh Campbell on June 7, 2021 at the age of 63.
Born in Main-a-Dieu, he was the son of the late Colin and Isabel (Locke) Campbell.
Left to mourn are his loving partner, Colleen; son David (Kellie), Alberta, daughter Amanda (Tyrone), Big Tancook Island, Stephanie (Clayton), Bateston, and Robert, Alberta. Grandchildren: Jason, Tristan, Gavin, Carly, Graidy, Carson, Connor, Michael and Samantha, who were Poppy’s pride and joy.
John Hugh is also survived by brothers: Jimmy, Robbie (Loretta), Andrew (Anna Mae), Victor (Donna), Tommy (Gwen), Frank (Peggy), Raymond (Joanne), Keith (Roseanne), Garfield (Tammy) and sisters: Theresa, Margie and Alice. In-laws Yvonne, Melba, Linda, Anita, Leona, Graham (Darlene). He was predeceased by brothers: Greg, Peter, Stephen, Selby and Joey; sisters: Georgina, Ada and Pauline.
He also leaves a loving imprint in the hearts of all his nieces and nephews.
John Hugh was a true family man who showed great pride in being a part of a large family, including a special bond with both the Zablaska and Wheeliker families. His happiest of times were spent on the water lobster fishing, tinkering with cars in the garage, and having a drink with the Captain while cheering on his beloved Toronto Maple Leafs. He formed many friendships through his role with Parks Canada, his volunteer roles with the Bateston Fire Dept., Catalone Recreation Centre, and as a team player with the Main-a-Dieu Gentlemens Hockey League.
A heartfelt gratitude to all of his medical care providers.
Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Donations in his memory can be made to a charity of your choice.

I’m so sorry to hear of John Hughs’ passing. He was a real nice guy who I saw infrequently but who always showed genuine interest in what was going on in my life any time we did meet up. The last time I saw John Hugh was at Garfield’s daughter Janelle and Jordan’s wedding, all dressed up and ready to go! As a life long Leafs fan myself, I understand his passion for that team. Go Leafs, go!
I was always astounded by the size of his family and of course, know a number of them personally, so, to all of John Hugh’s family whom I know and to all I don’t, I extend my deepest condolences.
