Peter B. Campbell

January 28, 1956 - December 28, 2021

Suddenly at his home Tuesday, December 28, 2021, at the age of 65. He was the beloved son of Ralph and Olive Campbell, both deceased, and dear brother to Lucille Young and John Campbell (Deb). He was predeceased by his sister, Joyce Stephenson (Jim), and his brother-in-law, Truman Young. Peter will be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews, as well as great-nieces and great-nephews. Peter was held in high esteem by his colleagues at Durham Regional Police Service for the excellence of his work over many years as a dispatcher, 9-1-1 operator and front desk clerk. Peter took great delight in singing the national anthem at various sporting events, locally and provincially, Toronto Maple Leaf and Hamilton Tiger-Cat games being among them, and as his reputation grew, fans looked forward to his rousing renditions. He also worked in radio as a sportscaster, where his encyclopedic knowledge of players, teams and leagues delivered in a strong, clear voice was much appreciated by listeners. On a more personal note, Peter will be remembered for his hearty laughter, even temperament, and outgoing nature. He loved to chat and was a friend to many. He was blessed to have Brigid as a special friend as the two of them shared many of the same interests. At his family’s request, no formal service will be held, as concerns about coronavirus remain high. Instead, a Celebration of Life will take place in the spring, preferably outdoors when the weather is nicer and the risk of infection is much lower. Anyone wishing to make a donation in Peter’s name to the Royal Canadian Legion Br. 30 Port Hope or the Salvation Army may do so at www.MacCoubrey.com.

Terry Spearing - February 24, 2022

I had the pleasure of working with Peter at Durham Regionals 911 centre for many years. What a wonderful, genuine person he was. I would always laugh when Peter would remind me I shared the same birth day as Jean Beliveau. I would always try to stump Peter with some obscure sports question but never won. The world was a better place with you in it Peter. I was and still am so sad to not have you here. Say hi to Jean and RIP my friend.

My condolences to the Campbell family. I had the pleasure of knowing Peter while working with him at DRPS. He was such a kind and caring individual. His knowledge about sports was incredible and I will always remember the conversations we had about the NFL being a superior league than the CFL. You will be missed buddy, R.I.P.

Niall O'Donohoe - January 10, 2022

I had the pleasure of working with Pete on hockey broadcasts at CHUC radio from 2002-2006 and witnessing the many occasions he sang the national anthem just before going on the air. What a fantastic voice! The first time I had met him was in 1999 after an hourly newscast when I mistakenly called him Pete Mitchell to promote a hockey game that was being broadcast. I confused him with an NFL football player who I had on my fantasy team. After I profusely apologized to him, he just put me at ease. He just said, 'No big deal. It's Campbell, just like the soup.' He just laughed it off and it was all good from there. I remember how thrilled he was to sing the Canadian and US national anthems before a Leafs game at the Air Canada Centre. Passing the audition out of the hundreds of people who tried out was a huge accomplishment and a feather in his cap. Pete was an incredibly talented play-by-play man who conducted fantastic interviews. He also attended a number of Memorial Cups to file reports for Broadcast News. Pete was a huge Beatles fan. I remember him singing a bit of 'Norwegian Wood' during a broadcast after a Norwegian-born player scored a goal. Pete was one of the nicest, most easy-going people I've ever met and was just so easy to talk to about anything. He really would light up a room when he entered. One of his favourite expressions during a broadcast would be "vim, vigor and vitality". He certainly showed those qualities in living his life. My condolences to all his family and friends. RIP Coach

Jane London - January 9, 2022

Condolences go out to the Campbell Clan, friends and colleagues. I had the privilege of working with Pete in Pickering for many years. He was a true gentleman and a patriot and he always put others before himself.

You are gone but never forgotten a final salute to you my friend until we meet again.

Pete was a great friend. I was so saddened to hear of his passing. I’ll always remember him not only for his sports knowledge but he was also a walking Beatles trivia machine. We last spoke in November. We FaceTimed when we could just to shoot the breeze. Rest In Peace Coach! Say hi to John for me!!! 🙏

Chantelle Skory - January 4, 2022

My condolences to Pete's family and friends. So sad to hear of your passing. You will be missed.

John Campbell - January 4, 2022

Thank you, everyone, for your heartfelt condolences. It's been quite moving to find out just how much my brother Pete was loved and respected. I'm sure your sentiments wouldn't have come as a surprise to him. He would have known by the company he kept over the years how great a guy he truly was. To be honest, many of you knew him better than I did, for we led separate lives (one reason being, he loved the Bruins, which, speaking as a Canadiens fan, is an unpardonable sin). Whenever we siblings got together, the talk would quickly turn to sports, politics, TV shows, and family lore, for which his prodigious memory served him well (the sharing of anecdotes oft-repeated brought us a great deal of joy. And a good many laughs.). Those were good times and I deeply regret now those occasions hadn't occurred more often. If Mom and Dad were around today, I know they'd be swelling with pride to see how many lives had been touched by their baby boy – yes, he was spoiled! -- and how he had become a beloved figure for so many. A Celebration of Life will be held at some point in the spring when it's safer to gather and the weather is nicer. That won't be for a few months, though, so you have plenty of time to come prepared with a favourite memory or two to share at the gathering. Perhaps in Pete's honour we could hold a sports trivia contest ... after we all sing the national anthem.* * Oh, and a Beatles song.

Mike Jackman - January 4, 2022

Pete was an amazing human Being so kind.And a huge sports fan I remember all of our hockey talks and what a great Knowledge he knew of the game especially from the older days.I took over for his PA Announcing with the Eagles and I Know I have some big shoes to fill.Thanks for being such kind person Pete you will be missed.By those you have Met over the years.

Johanna Huard Beelen - January 3, 2022

It is with sincere sympathy to all Mr Peter Campbell’s Family and Friends. May he Rest In Peace.

pete henderson - January 3, 2022

will miss pete having bruins and rangers arguements.whichhe mostly won. maybe gone but Never forgotten.

Penny Martin - January 3, 2022

Loved our euchre games and so happy that you got to visit us in Orillia. Love you Pete Cousin Penny

Greg Schatzmann - January 3, 2022

I'd known Peter for over 30 years. We went to the same college (Loyalist in Belleville) worked at the same radio stations in Swift Current Sask, and Ajax, Ont...oddly, never at the same time. I was always getting to where Peter was, shortly after he moved on. In fact, when Peter left the newsroom at CHOO in Ajax to pursue a new career with Durham Regional Police, I was hired to 'fill his shoes'. I might have done a adequate job of that in news, but certainly not in sports. I had never met someone who could spit out facts and stats about sports like Pete (also music and politics too!). Despite not actually working together, we became acquainted and remained friends for years. Pete would call out of the blue from time-to-time just to chat and catch up...most recently this past summer. I'll miss those calls. RIP by friend. You were certainly taken from us far too soon.

Dave Hughes - January 3, 2022

Like everyone, I was shocked and saddened to hear of the unexpected passing of Pete. We had worked together at CHOO Radio in Ajax and much later at CHUC here in Cobourg and kept in touch for almost 40 years. He certainly was a wealth of knowledge when it came to the Beatles or any hockey trivia question plus for sure he could quote statistics pertaining to almost every professional or local sports team. So much so. that a professional statistician would be envious of Pete's almost photographic memory and recall. You could spend hours grilling Pete with pretty much any question relating to music or sports (plus a good deal of politics as well). As you can see by the extensive messages of condolence left here, Pete Campbell touched many people and his loss is being felt across a number of communities. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time. Rest in peace "Coach".

Micheline Raizenne - January 3, 2022

I’m still so shocked by this! Pete and I worked together in the Newsroom at CHOO radio, then we’re hired together for Communications at DRPS. We spent many years working together and would get into some pretty good conversations about his love of the Beatles, or world politics, or his sports trivia mind. You just never know when it’s time. R.I.P. my friend, and I hope you get to interview John Lennon wherever you are!

My condolences to the whole Campbell family. Pete was an amazing person and he will be missed greatly , his sports knowledge was second to none and his laughter was so contagious . Rest in piece my friend .

Tammy Keegan - January 3, 2022

I had the privilege of working with Pete for about the last 10 years of his career at the front desk. I can honestly say he was never in a bad mood, he had such a good disposition about him . He would offer to give up holidays so everyone else could be home with their families at Christmas because he truly cared. He was passionate about sports trivia and he loved to share his knowledge about it. When I think of Pete I will smile because we have so many good memories together. RIP my friend you will not be forgotten.

Neil Vanderstoop - January 2, 2022

I’ll never forget Pete beating me in a car 1/4 mile race. That damn Olds I think against my newly painted step side pick up. Pete was sure happy and boy did I take a ribbing that night out in front of the Newtonville school. Rest In Peace Condolences. -Neil.

Tina White - January 2, 2022

RIP Pete it was an honour to have you as my work partner for many years. Your laugh was powerful and made many of us smile.

You were a wonderful man Pete, truly loved by many and we will miss you dearly.

Norm Theriault - January 2, 2022

Carolyn venedam - January 2, 2022

I hope Pete knew how loved and respected he was. He was the kindest man. I had the pleasure of working with him at the front desk for many years, lots of laughs and his hockey trivia was outta this world! He was always the first to wish others well at all their retirement functions or gladly take a shift or two at Christmas so his colleagues could be home with family. Thank you for the yearly birthday wishes, and emails to check in on us at work. RIP.. we will take it from here. ❤️ Thank you for being a friend.

Jason D - January 2, 2022

I'm so sorry to hear this. It was a true shock. I still feel so apart of this family that this hits home to me as well. I will always remember Pete's kindness. He always went out of his way to come say Hi when we seen each other out and about. Until we meet again sir... you rest easy and say hi to a few people up there for me. Tell them we are ok and thanks for watching over us.

Olivia - January 2, 2022

It is very true, your laugh will be missed. You were a very kind soul and a hilarious one too! You had the greatest stories to tell and I am going to miss them. You were a very wise man and I am forever grateful for the chance of knowing you. One of the many things I loved about you was that we had the same taste in music. It makes me smile knowing whenever I listen to The Beatles, it will make me think of you ❤ Love you Uncle Pete and may you rest in peace.

Neil Pemberton - January 2, 2022

So shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Coach. Pete was such a great guy to sit down with and have a chat with about any sport and very quick to act knowledge you with that robust voice when he spotted you anywhere. My sincere condolences to the family Neil Pemberton

Cathy Adams - January 1, 2022

So very sad to hear of Peter's passing. We have been friends since high school. I was always so glad to see him at the rink on the occasional Sunday evening when he'd pop by to sing the anthem or or once in awhile, broadcast for the Bowmanville Eagles. I loved reminiscing with him about friends we didn't see much anymore. Such a wonderfully, kind person with so many friends. He will be missed. Rest in peace Peter, my friend. Cathy (Ogden) Adams

Peter McLean - January 1, 2022

I was surprised and sadden to hear of Pete's sudden passing. I had the pleasure to work with Pete at Durham. You knew when you heard his voice in the radio, you were in good hands. Later when I went to Cobourg, Pete followed as a dispatcher. Again he was the consummate professional. We would cross paths around Cobourg, especially at the CCC rink at Cougar games and Pete would always keep me up to date on the goings on at DRPS. Rest in Peace Pete 10-7 Life well done

Roy Foster - January 1, 2022

My sincere condolences to Peter's family. I've known Peter since high school and considered him a good friend as he was to anyone who knew him.

I can see him interviewing all of the legends in Heaven. RIP MY FRIEND

Scott Daniel - January 1, 2022

Shocked and saddened to hear of Pete's passing. First met Pete years ago when he worked at CHUC and remained friends ever since.

Condolences to Pete's family and friends.

Greg McAllister - January 1, 2022

Saddened to hear of Pete's passing. Such a kind and decent man and friend to so many people from many walks of life. I always enjoyed our conversations about sports, particularly our back and forth about his beloved Leafs and my Habs. His great knowledge of statistical facts was impressive, to say the least, but it was his memory of games and moments in those games that made him such a joy to talk sports with. My sincerest condolences to his family and close friends and to the sports community in Cobourg where his loss has undoubtedly already been felt.

Jack Julicher - January 1, 2022

Mike Anton - January 1, 2022

Larry Wood - January 1, 2022

I knew Peter from the first day he began working at Durham Regional Police. Invariably of good humour in a job that often made it difficult, Peter was always, without fail, engaging in conversations on a plethora of topics, especially, but by no means limited to, sports. He was knowledgably conversant with current events and matters concerning politics as well ; his opinions were informed and valid. Everyone, without exception, thoroughly enjoyed his company. The reactions on the DRP website, in reaction to his passing, have said it all. Peter Campbell was an exceptional person and will be missed terribly. May he rest in peace and may God keep him in the protection of His Loving Hands. Please pray for me and save me a spot nearby, Pete.

My condolences to the Campbell family on Pete’s passing. A sad loss. Coach was one of the good ones. He was a great person to work with, and chat with about sports, the Beatles and his love of the Bruins. I am pretty sure in the CHUC archives there is a recording of Pete signing the national anthem at MLG the first time. Time to dig it out. RIP Coach. John and Karen Russell

Curtis Hodgins - January 1, 2022

Pete was simply a wonderful human being. Loved to chat hockey and tell stories, I always enjoyed our talks going back over 20 years on the local hockey scene. He was such a huge supporter of junior hockey in our eastern corridor and could be counted on for anything that was needed on any given night, from broadcasting to singing the anthem to doing post game interviews. He really was a true jack of all trades. And a recording of his booming O' Canada continues to be used for our home games at Ontario Tech University, something that will give me a smile every time I hear it. Our world needs more Pete Campbells, RIP my friend.

Linda & Jim MacDonald - January 1, 2022

So, so sorry for your family's loss. Peter was a lovely person and will be greatly missed. God bless.

Roger Beuschel - January 1, 2022

I offer my sincere condolences to Peter's family. I had the privilege of working with Peter at various times throughout his career with the Durham Regional Police Service. I first got to know 'Pete' when he was working as a communicator on a platoon in the 9-11 center, and later when he chose a new direction as a front desk operator at 19/West Division in Pickering. Both of those roles involved close contact with the public, and Pete's down to earth approach and professionalism, benefited all. After he retired, Pete moved to Cobourg. We had several coffee meets, and during the pandemic Pete became a good 'covid-buddy', meeting for 'socially distant' discussions and coffee. I know Pete's sense of humour, his laugh, and his encyclopedic knowledge of 'stuff', especially sports related trivia, was well known, and will be missed by all that knew him. RIP Pete.  

Peg (Kernaghan) Thomas - January 1, 2022

He played on the CHUC ball team with Judy and myself and took me into the Cobourg Cougars broad cast booth, where he was at his best. He will be missed by many. RIP my friend.

So sorry to hear this sad news. As a dispatcher, Pete ensured that we were always in good hands, but he was so much more to those who were fortunate enough to work with him. Everyone could call him a friend.

Marc Mercier - December 31, 2021

It is with a profound sense of sadness that we pass along our deepest condolences to Peter’s family and his many friends. As Governor of the Cobourg Cougars, I came to know Pete through his great work as our play-by-play announcer and national anthem singer at hundreds of home games, which often included his amazing rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner. He was a prolific interviewer of players and staff and was always an unwavering supporter of the club. Pete will be dearly missed but remembered for all he gave us and his booming voice will continue on at Cougars’ home games for years to come.

My deepest condolences to Peter’s friends and family. I met Peter when he worked at the Cobourg Police as a dispatcher. As Chief I was greatly impressed with Peter’s professionalism and also his empathy for victims. I never met Peter when he didn’t greet you with a big smile.
