Our Winnipeg chapter mourns the loss of its past president, Richard Campbell

It is with great sadness that we share the news of Richard Campbell’s passing on February 7, 2016.

Richard died at home in his sleep, which is what he always said he would want when his time came. As President of the Winnipeg Chapter, he shouldered responsibility without complaint and livened up our meetings with his sharp wit and sense of humour.

Richard and his family volunteered for all our events contributing in no small way to their ultimate success.

This year Richard made the decision to step down from our chapter executive and take on a less demanding role due to health reasons.

He was respected as our chapter leader, but more than that he was our dear friend. We will miss him very much.
