Campbell, Brian Walter, of Brookfield, formerly of Beaverbank, completed his journey on March 22, 2020 at home surrounded by his family. He was born in Truro, a son of the late Kenneth Campbell and Eloise Yorke and raised in Stewiacke East on the Willow Bend Farm. Brian is survived by his wife of 48 years, Gwen; sons, Joel (Juliet), Enfield and Peter (Jackie), Gatineau, QC; his grandchildren, Ruby, Porter, Harriet, Sawyer, Audrey and Anna; brother, Jack(Carol) in England as well as nieces and nephews. His wonderful grandchildren were always in his heart and mind. Before his passing, Ruby (13) modeled for Papa, her graduation dress and Audrey (6) would read him a bedtime story each night. Brian loved his time at the family cottage at Shortts Lake and was happiest when family and friends joined him there. Watching his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews enjoy swimming, boating and barbequing, gave him tons of pleasure. He enjoyed spending time with friends and son, Joel, at his log cabin during hunting season and managing his woodlot. Brian was also a passionate motorcyclist and member of the Retread Motorcycle Riding Group. He and his wife enjoyed many motorcycle trips and memories over the years with their friends in the group. Brian and Gwen enjoyed travelling to the USA, Caribbean, China and their cruises abroad. He always talked about his special trip with Peter driving across Canada in 2000. One of his happiest moments was when he and Gwen moved home to Brookfield in 2017 and being closer to family, friends, the cottage and log cabin. Brian retired in 2011 from Sun Life as a Director of Estate Planning. He enjoyed his short time in the air force and his career working with The Bank of Nova Scotia and Royal Bank before joining Mutual Life. He was a former member of the Kinsmen Club of Sackville and a member of the Brookfield Golf and Country Club. The family wishes to thank the nurses and doctors in the CEHHC Palliative Care Unit as well as the staff of the Cancer Team in the Dixon Center in Halifax for their compassionate care. Arrangements have been entrusted to Colchester Community Funeral Home, 512 Willow St., Truro. A celebration of Brian’s life will be held at a later date due to the current global health issues. Donations in Brian’s memory may be made to the Kidney Foundation of Nova Scotia, Colchester East Hants Health Centre or a charity of choice. On line condolences may be sent to the family by visiting

Dear Gwen, Peter, Joel and families,
It is with great sadness that we send this quick note. We will always remember convention in San Francisco when we did the big road trip! We enjoyed our visits to the cottage on Shortt's Lake and the Whing Ding in Brookfield! We will miss him! Our prayers are with you, the boys and the family.

Dear Gwen and Family:
Please accept our deepest condolences . When we last spoke to Brian , we could see that he was delighted to be living in his home town again, enjoying life with you and the family. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
I spent a year boarding on the farm with Ken, Loisy and the boys when I began my teaching career at Stewiacke East Elem. in 1966. They all made me feel at home and I have fond memories of the family .
I know your children and Grandchildren will help to fill the void in your life, but not completely.
Thinking of all of you in this most difficult of times. Marilyn & Al Martell


Memories are the band - aids of the soul.
They allow us to heal from within and soothe our grief with the surety of sunrise.
Memories are timekeepers.
Windows that reflect our relationships with loved ones .
They encourage us to revisit the best of times; the moments of trust and joy that we have shared.

Memories are the battle scars and trophies of a hard-won battle.
They remind us of what is pure, truthful and honest within ourselves and those whom we have loved and lost.

Memories are the chapters that link the pages of a lifetime .
They motivate us to cherish the past and to make it part of the present and the future.
