Gerard, Russell Campbell


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Russell “Muscle” on August 20, 2017 at 73 years of age.  Adored friend to Warren, Mickey, Robert, Helen and “Cat”.  He will be sadly missed by many direct support professionals within Community Living Essex County.  Chatting on the front porch of his home with friends will never be the same.  Many will remember Russ for his boisterous hello with his hand held high when you entered the room followed by that giggle!  He had a great sense of humour and was always interested in hearing what you were up to.  Russ was very proud of his muscles as he always flexed his arms and proudly shouted "muscles" to anyone that would listen.

He never missed an opportunity for cheeseburgers and fries or taking a ride to enjoy a nice hot coffee coffee.  Naturally he was an avid fan of Rachel Ray never missing an episode to see her cook cuisine which he enjoyed and would often try to cook.  Please join us in celebrating Russell’s life that was filled with happiness and love.

Visitation will be held at Sykes Funeral Home 91 Division Rd South Kingsville, Ontario on Wednesday August 23, 2017 from 3pm to 6pm and Thursday August 24th, 2017 from 10am until the time of Funeral Service at 11am.  Interment Greenhill Cemetery, Kingsville Ontario.
