His early years were spent in Winnipeg and Lake of the Woods surrounded by family: elder sister Frances, brother Bill and sister Audrey and many Baker cousins. Later, the family moved to Calgary, and then Vancouver, where Basil graduated from Magee in 1940. He studied at University of British Columbia until 1943, when he enlisted with the Royal Canadian Air Force. He received his pilot's wings in October 1944. Before he could be posted overseas, the war came to an end. He then resumed his studies at University of British Columbia, and completed a Master's degree in Chemical Engineering in 1948. He moved to Trail, British Columbia in 1949 to work for Cominco Ltd. He loved the West Kootenays and it was there that Basil was to remain for the rest of his professional life.

In addition, Basil was an avid skier and strong supporter of Red Mountain Ski Club, serving in various functions, including a term as President in 1966/67.

Basil also loved sailing, and enjoyed summers at Christina Lake from 1954 until his illness in 2002. He was also associated with the Kinsmen and Rotary service organizations. After retirement in 1989, Basil and Doolee moved to Vancouver to be closer to their children, all of whom had moved there.

CAMPBELL, Eric Hugh
Eric Hugh CAMPBELL died peacefully on December 30, age 95, at "Braeburn", his cherished family home for the past 45 years. He was predeceased by his beloved wife, Phyllis May (MOODIE) and is survived by his five children and their spouses (Christopher/Gay, Tony/Alison, John/ Bridget, Nigel/Judy, Elizabeth/John) as well as by his much-loved 15 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. He is remembered by a host of loving Friends and especially Barbara CAMPBELL and Isabel MERSEL.
A very proud Canadian, he was born in Valparaiso, Chile in 1909 of Scottish, Yorkshire and German ancestry. He deeply loved his native land and returned to it several times over the years while his schooling, career and choices for his young family took him to Dollar Academy near Edinburgh, Scotland; La Paz, Bolivia Ottawa, Canada; San Salvador, El Salvador; and finally to Hudson Heights, Quebec.
He considered himself fortunate to have had an opportunity to build an unequalled 70 year career in the Canadian and international public utility industry, starting with Bolivian Power Company/ Montreal Engineering in 1935, followed by the Gatineau Power Company of Ottawa, and then the Canadian International Power Company of Montreal. C.I.P. was an international public utility holding company in which he rose to be President and Director not only of it but also of several of its subsidiaries including the Monterey Railway, Light and Power Company, Mexico, Compania Alumbrado Electrico de San Salvador, Energia Electrica de Venezuela, and the Barbados Light and Power Company (of which he was chairman for 25 years, retiring at the age of 88 and continuing as an emeritus until his death).
A funeral service and interment will be held at 1: 30 p.m., Saturday, January 15 at St James' Church, 640 Main Road, Hudson Heights, Quebec followed by a reception for Friends and family in the church hall. In lieu of flowers, contributions to the Victorian Order of Nurses would be particularly appreciated (Victorian Order of Nurses, 98 Cameron Avenue, Hudson, Québec, J0P 1H0).
The family wishes to express deepest appreciation to members of their father's wonderful care team, with special thanks to Mrs. Violeta VALIENTES and her family, Effie OSMOND, Dr. Ron HRYNIOWSKI and Victorian Order of Nurses nurse Ann SULLIVAN.
