Mr Campbell was a significant member of several generations of the Newman (Blanchard / Thayer) family at Kenmore Farm. He willingly took us under his wing as taught so much with his work ethic and ability to tend to the needs of Kenmore...growing fabulous gardens and tending to the stock.

I particularly remember the years all of us (Blanchard and Thayer kids) would wait at the bottom of the driveway each morning for him to come across the road, and piling into his jeep or the tractor to start the day.

For me he is part of Kenmore as much as the buildings, woods and fields and it seems very appropriate that this is were he has returned.

He is missed.

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.
