Hi,

I know some are aware of this sad news but it is with great regret that
I have to pass on the information that Campbell unfortunately passed away
on Sunday.

Campbell was a good bloke who had been a member for a long time and
liked helping people out when he could. I have met him numerous times
and he usually had a witty line to pass on - often with a wry smile.

I know from the messages I have already received that he will certainly
be missed by many of his friends.

My thoughts and condolences go out to Deidre, his daughters and all the
family at what is a very difficult time.

RIP


Steve

Very sorry to read this. He seemed a bit of a character and I Shan’t forget his “Shy bairns get nae sweeties”.

RIP

I was very sorry to read that Campbell has passed away. Although we never met we exchanged several emails concerning problems he was experiencing with his property.

My sincere condolences to Dierdre, his daughters and other family members.

RIP

So long Campbell.
We first met in 2006 and it was fun knowing you.

His original forum signature was something like

Campbell and I never met, but exchanged several emails when, as a retired Detective Inspector and with a 'bone to chew on' he was looking for new ways to pursue his concerns and complaints.

As I was once told quite brutally, the only certainty in life is death. But when it comes it usually causes incredible grief for those left behind.

All I can say to his family is that I'm positive he's proud of you all, would want you to be strong...and remember both the good times and how lucky you all are (in this complicated, often violent, frequently dysfunctional and paralysing world) to have those to remember.

May he, and you, find spiritual peace.

So sorry to hear this sad news, It was not that long age that he was on here about a test he was having. This is very sudden. My sincere condolences to his family, may he rest in peace.

Very sad, first met Campbell about 2006.

He was an active member of AY Nik Golf club.

He was also a member of our Bowls club in our early days.

We used to socialise every week with Deirdre and were a very good quiz team that quizzed at Charlies.

He had a very dry sense of humour and didn't suffer fools gladly.

Always enjoyed the banter with him on and off the forum.

He will be sadly missed, and my heart goes out to Deidre at this sad time.

Gone to a better place. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

So very shocked to read this news....

I have never met Campbell... but somehow I felt as if we had met... just through reading his posts on this forum I felt he was someone I would have liked to meet... especially loved his 'tell it as it is' way of posting...

My sincere sympathy and condolences to his family.... R.I.P. Campbell....

So sorry to read this sad news. I met Campbell a few times when I fetched his favourite coffee over for him.
We'd have a little natter when I met him and always went away smiling. Such a genuine, and likeable gent.
I've coffee here ready to bring over for him as a surprise as knew he was not too well.
Rest in peace Campbell, you will be missed.
Condolences to Deidre and family.

Campbell Findlay BEM. As a police sergeant he was honoured for his expertise
in bringing child abusers to justice. He also lectured on the subject in Police
training establishments.
It was an honour to know him and call him a friend.
Love to Deirdre and all the family.

Jim
