Keith Campbell

12.11.1950 - 01.11.2021

Keith sadly passed away on 1st November 2021, aged 70 years. Beloved husband of Miriam, much loved dad of Louise, James and Leon and loving grandad of seven grandchildren.

Tributes paid to founding member of Bognor Hotham Rotary Club

Hard working, enthusiastic, generous and kind, with a wry sense of humour, family members said Keith Campbell remained ‘resolutely himself’ throughout the final weeks of his life, despite his waning health.

The lifelong solicitor with Chamberlain Martin was a well regarded mentor to colleagues, a source of professional wisdom to peers and friends, retiring in 2019 having struggled with heart failure for some time. After a three week period during which his health got worse, he died on November 1, aged 70.

But health problems never stopped the Felpham local from being himself.

“Although his health was declining, he was still fairly active up until the end,” said daughter Louise Hall.

“We still did lots of family outings. He wasn’t incapacitated by his ill-health up until he died and, although he only had two proper years of retirement, he made the most of them.”

That’s not surprising. Between red wine, Southern France, Jewish history and the music of The Beatles, Mr Campbell was a man of many passions, and he made sure to enjoy all of them. Alongside the success of his children and grandchildren, one of Mr Campbell’s proudest achievements was walking St Cuthbert’s way to Holy Island with his wife, Miriam- part of a challenge for his 60th birthday.

“He had a tremendous work ethic, but he was also really fun to be around,” Mrs Hall said. “The thing I will miss most about him is staying up late into the night, drinking red wine, listening to music, and putting the world to rights.”

A dedicated Rotarian, Mr Campbell was also a founding member of the Bognor-Hotham Rotary Club.

Mrs Hall said the club has been ‘very supportive’: “We had a lovely message from the president, who obviously spread the word through to the wider network.

“They’ve been really lovely. They sent mum a big bouquet of flowers on November 12 because it was my dad’s birthday. It was very kind.”

I remember Keith more, when we were all children, and cycling to the beach with his mother. They were carefree fun days, and, sometimes we got into trouble, but I just remember them as our beloved holidays. Keith was a curly- headed boy, youngest of our group, fun to be with, and then we all grew up, and went our separate ways, but he and Mim always kept in touch with me at Christmas time with a newsy card. I moved to Canada, so I didn't see him so much. His mother and my mother were school friends, and they exchanged children for the holidays, so that we all got a change of environment and activities. A long time ago now, but still memorable.!!
I am so sorry to read the news of Keith's passing; it was Graham, my brother, that told me this morning, and I send my deepest condolences to Mim and the "children", also to Clyde, his brother, and hope that your fond memories of Keith will comfort you at this very difficult time. May he rest in peace. God bless

Very sorry to hear the news of Kieths passing.
I have fond memories of a Beaujolais run many years ago.
He will be sadly missed.
