Celebration of Life for One of Cranbrook Longest-Serving Volunteers Saturday

The community will come together this weekend to celebrate the life and accomplishments of Colin Campbell.

Campbell, 71, passed away in Cranbrook on Tuesday, February 19th.

He was born in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, but lived much of his early life in the West Kootenay.

Campbell and his family moved to Cranbrook in 1995 to open what is now known as Guidance Planning Strategies.

He was part of Cranbrook's Rotary Club for the last 41 years and the Masonic Lodge for 35, while also helped to establish a couple of other local groups. He served as the Chairman for the Canada Cup of Curling in 2011 and co-chaired efforts for Cranbrook to win Kraft Hockeyville.

A celebration of life will take place at the Colombo Hall on Saturday, March 16th, starting at 2:00 pm.
