We, the family of James Anthony Campbell, 60 years old, of Sydney, regret to announce his sudden passing on Tuesday, July 5, 2022, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.
Anthony was born on December 23, 1961, grew up in the small town of Bateston and was the son of the late Willy J and Margaret Campbell.
Anthony devoted his life to helping others as a volunteer paramedic in Louisbourg for many years before going on to start his career as a Special Constable for the Cape Breton Regional Police, a position that he held with great pride. Dad always shared with us to treat people with dignity and respect even in their toughest times, Dad was very well respected in the policing community.
Anthony loved spending time with his ‘Little Man’, Colin and his ‘Little Girlios’, Paislee and Dani. Dad’s grandchildren were his whole world.
Anthony was also an avid horse race lover for years and you would find him fence side at Tartan Downs and in recent years “watching the races downtown”.
Anthony is survived by his loving children, Tony (Jenn) Campbell, Alyssa (Chad) Green, and Adam Harpell; grandchildren Colin, Paislee and Dani; sisters, Sharon (Leo) Carter, Louise (Tommy) Carter, Linda (Philip) Burke, Marlene (George) Taylor, and Darlene Chisholm; brothers, Mike (Janet) Campbell, Patrick Campbell, and sister-in-law, Carolyn Campbell; as well as many nieces and nephews.
Beside his parents, Anthony is predeceased by his, brother, Joseph Campbell and brother-in-law, Chris Chisholm.
Visitation and Memorial Mass to celebrate the life of Anthony Campbell will be held at Immaculate Conception Church in Main-a-Dieu on Monday, July 11, 2022. A gathering of family and friends will take place from 10 to 11 a.m. with the Mass to follow at 11 a.m. Fr. Evo DiPierro officiating. Interment will take place in the parish cemetery, Main-A-Dieu.

I am saddened to learn of the passing of a long-time co-worker and friend. I first met Anthony when he joined the staff at the Cape Breton Regional Police Headquarters. As previously noted by others Anthony was an excellent employee and worker; always very mindful of the importance of his work and assisting whenever he could. Anthony’s commitment to duty and the organization helped provide a safe and secure learning and working environment. He could be counted on to assist with training, scheduling, and ensuring supplies were replenished. It doesn’t seem much time has passed since he and I had a nice long chat at a local coffee shop. I was so glad our paths crossed that day. Anthony will be missed by all who knew him. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
Inspector Ret. Tony Dalton
