June 2,1937 – June 11, 2016
On Saturday night following a lamb roast surrounded by family and friends, Roy slipped away peacefully after a brief illness. A true Renaissance man, Roy studied at the University of Leeds and UBC… he represented Canada at international judo competitions, enjoyed every game of tennis he played and travelled the world extensively. A true scholar and educator, Roy’s gentle soul and strength touched and taught all who knew him. He will be dearly missed by friends and family here on Saltspring and around the world, especially his “devoted companion” Margaret C. Benmore and his daughter, Meaghan Campbell, her husband Paul and their two wonderful children Alexander (5) and Samantha(3). Roy so delighted in the grandchildren, their inquisitive minds, lovely hugs and endless laughter.
Flowers gratefully declined, please consider a donation to the Copper Kettle Society or the Bessie Dane Hospice Society in lieu.
The family would like to thank the amazing Saltspring healthcare community including Dr. Robert Crichton and Jerry, all the staff at Lady Minto, the Palliative home care nursing team, Beacon’s home support folks and members of the Saltspring Hospice Society for their support. We would also like to thank the Clinical Training Unit (3 North) at the Royal Jubilee in Victoria. You all helped us immensely on our journey with your care and compassion…thank you all so much.
