With sadness we announce the passing of Roderick T. Campbell of Bluffton, Alberta on Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at the age of 78 years. 


Roderick, or “Buzz” to all who knew him, was born in Fort St. John, British Columbia on October 25, 1945, to Colin and Anne Campbell.  He was the fourth child of eight children born to Colin and Anne.  Buzz met his wife Linda in 1967, and they were united in marriage in 1969.  They remained in Fort St. John, where they raised their two children, Jason and Stacy.  Buzz became a journeyman electrician, and worked for the IBEW at job sites all over British Columbia and Alberta in the more than 40 years that he worked for the union.  In 1980, the family decided to leave the Peace Country and moved to Summerland, British Columbia where they lived for the next 17 years.  In 1997, Buzz and Linda relocated to Bluffton, Alberta. 


Anyone who knew Buzz would tell you about his remarkable sense of humour, as well as his love for telling fantastic stories – and there were some good ones!  Coffee time (at least twice a day) was Buzz’s social time, and you could set your watch by him.  He was fiercely loyal, and would do anything to help a friend in need.  Buzz will be greatly missed by so many of his family and friends.


Buzz is survived by his son Jason Campbell; his daughter Stacy Campbell (Keegan Andrews); his granddaughter McKaela Griffin (Jonathan); as well as four precious great-grandchildren Reilly, Emersyn, Silas, and Atlas.  He also leaves behind two brothers Dick (Sheila) and Dave; two sisters Helen and Arlene (Timber); along with several nieces and nephews; and many dear friends in Alberta and British Columbia.   Buzz was predeceased by his wife Linda; in addition to three brothers Andy, Sandy, and Don.


With respect for the family’s wishes, no formal funeral service will be held.  Thoughts and messages to the family may be shared through the condolence area located at the bottom of this page.
