Campbell, Robert Leo,  Johnstown/Antigonish

We regret to announce that Robert Leo Campbell died in Antigonish, N.S. on March 7th, his wife of 61 years, Frances, by his side.

Bob was born in Sydney in 1938, the son of Peter and Viola Campbell.

He is survived by sons Ian, David (Darlene), and Robert Jr. (Christine); daughter, Lynn (Stephane); grandchildren, Jessica and Ethan; and brothers, Fr. Louis and Gerard (Lorraine). Fondly remembered by his nephew, nieces, and many cousins.

Bob spent thirty years teaching English at U.P.E.I., and served for periods as Chair of English, Registrar, and Dean of Arts. He always remembered fondly his students and colleagues at U.P.E.I. After twenty-three years of retirement in Johnstown, Richmond County, Bob and Fran moved to Antigonish in 2019.

Funeral Mass will be held in St. Ninian Cathedral in Antigonish on Saturday, March 11th at 1:00 PM.
