Obituary For Roy William Campbell

February 9, 1947 – December 27, 2023

LOVED MUCH REMEMBERED FOREVER

Roy left this earth to be with his heavenly Lord and Savior on December 27, 2023 at 7 a.m. at Prairie Lake Hospice in Grande Prairie, Alberta. With courage, dignity, strength and unwavering faith, he fought a hard battle with T-Cell lymphoma. Never did he allow this disease to take away his sense of humour or his purpose in knowing God. How do you sum up the life of a person on a sheet of paper – by remembering that person and how he touched your life.

Roy is survived by his wife Judy of 56 years, daughters Carleen and Cheryl Campbell, grandsons Braden McDonald (Jenna), Devon McDonald (Nadia), Tyson McDonald (Faith), sister Elaine Thibeault (Rod), Renee and Steven, Mark and Lindsay, niece Julianne (Fraser) Stefura and Matt, brother in law George Guest, Alan and Leanne, nephew Jason Sawatsky (Amanda) and Kastyn, sister in law Arlene Benoit (Jean) and family, nephew Troy Erickson (Hayley), niece and nephews Bonnie, Michael and Danny Caron and many cousins and one Aunt Helen Knutson and her family.

He was predeceased by his parents Ted and Julia Campbell, father and mother in law Roy and Maggie Erickson, sisters Joan Guest, Linda Sawatsky, Millie Fraser, nephew George Guest, sister in law Carol (Caron) Pruss.

Until we meet again.

A celebration of Roy’s life will be held on Saturday, January 6th, 2024 at 2pm at Bear Creek Funeral Home in Grande Prairie, Alberta. A livestream link will be made available shortly and will be added below.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Grande Prairie Regional Hospital – Cancer Clinic (donation link available under Roy’s photo on the left) or directly at gphospitalfoundation.ca

    Our heartfelt condolences to Judy and family. Roy was a cherished friend and amazing neighbour to my parents Bill and Steffnie. They shared many afternoon teas and dinners. I enjoyed seeing Roy and Judy when I visited my parents. I especially loved Roy's humor and positive energy. He was a wonderful person and know he will be missed by all whose lives he touched in a special way. Sincerely, Sherri

    To Roy: You are a Good, Humble and Genuine human being - indeed, we can all learn a thing or two from you. We are fortunate to have crossed your journey... Plus, he played a pretty mean game of cards 🙂 God Bless you Roy and to Family!

    Lots of love sent to you, We are so sorry for your loss. We all have many good memories of Roy. His laugh and big smile and cowboy hat. He always liked to tease me when I was small and into my adult life and then he did the same with my own kids. He always made us laugh and always had a smile. Thinking of you all ❤️ The Thoma's.

    Judy, Carleen, Cheryl and your families. Norm and I would like to send our true condolences to all of you. Roy was just the kind of guy everyone could talk to, laugh with and carry on a good conversation with. I'll never forget his laugh, it would start at his toes and when it finally surfaced it was truly the heartiest laugh I ever heard. He will be missed by all of us. Roy you are finally home, go rest now and we'll see you again. Love to all, Joanne & Norm Ingalls

    Judy, I'm so sorry for your loss. It seems not so long ago we were all farming and life was busy. So much has happened in between then and now. I remember when our daughter was in 4H that one year. I absolutely knew nothing of 4H and tending to their animals etc. Roy knew. He cleaned and shaved and did a wonderful job of preparing Lorraine's cow for showing. I was amazed that a calf could look so good! We owed him one. Judy, the days ahead will look different and very lonely at times. In those times the peace of God and the comfort in knowing Him will help you get through. The memories you've shared together with your daughters and your grandchildren might bring a few tears of joys and blessings, that help soften the tears of sadness.
