Dear annnabelle, I was just at Paul Chabot's funeral yesterday and found out that Bob had passed. While with Don McCallum's band Bob and I used to trade gardening stories, and I think I met you as well, when we came back in 2002. This is a blow, and I am truly sorry for your loss. I liked Bob, from the first time we met, so sincere and so talented and Kind. I never knew he was a math teacher. Will say a prayer for him.Pat Hill

Mr. Campbell was my music teacher between 1965-67. He was one of those teachers you never forget. It was apparent that he truly loved to teach and he was good at it. I give him props for his never ending patience and I apologize for some of his hair loss. RIP Mr. Campbell and thanks for sharing your time with us and your love of music. We were listening.
A Fantastic teacher!

I've often thought of my time in Mr. Campbell's music class (1978-82) and how much I enjoyed every minute of it. He was one heck of a great teacher.

A very sad message to hear of Bob's passing.
Over many years we have been good friends and old neighbors on Toronto St. All of the Campbell family were our Great friends and pals. Bob was a real gentleman !
We will miss Bob very much and although we are now in BC we have made a point to visit with him and Family when traveling back to Kingston occasionally. Our condolences to Bob's Family.
A fine musician

I am so sad to hear of Bob's passing. He will be missed as a fellow trombonist who was a pleasure to play with. His smile lit up his whole face and we loved to share gardening stories. He had such passion for his family, his music, and his friends. I will miss him and his kindness.
