Obituary for Bruce Campbell

Bruce  Campbell
Bruce passed away in his home at Rocky Lake East Shore, Manitoba on Tuesday, October 16, 2018. His wife, Mavis, was with him. Bruce was 62 years old. He was born in Teulon, Manitoba on Monday, October 31, 1955.

Bruce is survived by his wife, Mavis; Mom, Cathy (Bernie) Hendricks of Stonewall, Mb; Step Mom, Emily Evans of Winnipeg, Mb; daughter, Carrie (Chris Denchuk) Tyerman of Winnipeg, Mb; brothers-in-law Milt (Pam) Grolla of Saskatoon, Sk and Gord Grolla of Trail, BC; neice, October (Chris Remenda) Grolla of Martensville, Sk; nephews, Denver (Meagan Reynolds) Grolla of Saskatoon, Sk; Colton Grolla of Prince George, BC, and Carson Grolla of Rosetown, Sk; grandson Dylan Tyerman of Fisher Branch, Mb, granddaughter, Dakota Tyerman of Stonewall, Mb and great grandson, Jaxtyn of Stonewall, Mb.; several Aunts, Uncles and cousins.

Bruce was predeceased by his Dad, Buck Campbell; Father and Mother-in-law, Walter and Margaret Grolla; both sets of grandparents and several Aunts, Uncles and cousins.

Bruce was very athletic and played high level sports in Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba. He played hockey, football, fastball, slow pitch and pretty well anything else he could get involved in….except golf. He could never quite figure out why anyone would want to chase a ball down the fairway when there was a perfectly good golf cart to ride around in and drink beer while wearing his unique golf attire, flip flops!

Fishing was a big part of Bruce’s life. Bruce taught many of the kids to fish in our boat. He always felt it was the one place the kids were truly independent as they reeled in their first fish by themselves and laughed and giggled, eager to do it again! Bruce taught the kids a saying about fishing…..”you catch em, clean em, cook em, eat em, do the dishes!”

Trips to Mexico were a large part of his life with family and friends until Bruce and Mavis purchased a place in Arizona. At that point, the shorter hot holidays turned into 3-4 month stays in Mesa.

Bruce worked with Correctional Service of Canada for 30 years in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. For the last 12 years of his career he was the Warden at Rockwood Institution just outside of Winnipeg. Bruce held the honor of being the youngest serving Warden in Canada for many years prior to retiring in August 2010.

Bruce enjoyed the people he worked with and beamed with pride when they excelled at their jobs. Bruce also enjoyed giving his staff every opportunity to shine as he quietly sat back and smiled at their accomplishments.

Bruce was always interested in hearing people’s stories about their lives. Bruce’s request was for you to remember him by sharing stories about yourselves while eating pizza and drinking beer.

At Bruce’s request, there will not be a funeral service.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your favorite charity.

Thank you to the Emergency Department doctors and staff at St. Anthony’s in The Pas, who were kind, the first responders who came to the house, the RCMP and Hemauer staff.
