I was a chemistry student when Freddie was a Physics lecturer at UG. But when I started to take my first love astronomy seriously long after I graduated, I consulted him about a penumbral eclipse of the Moon when I encountered him ~1979 in the then Guyana (formerly Bookers) Stores bookshop. His only words to me were: "What do you expect to see?"
I could make no answer, and he returned to perusing the books. But the economy of his answer to my question remained with me and enabled me to refine my researches to pose answerable questions.

Nothing can replace the memories of your dear brother, Freddie but, may those memories grow more precious to you with every passing day. Hazel, Winston, Waveney, and Joan I send you and your family a heart full of sympathy and understanding. May the love of God uphold you in this trial.

To the Campayne family,
How very well I remember Fred. We were at primary school ( Sacred Heart -Main Street ), and later moved over to SSC in Sept 1951.
He was always ready with his huge smile to assist us lesser achievers and there were countless times that I was able to encourage him to explain some Algebraic equation to me. So to Fred ,thanks for being my friend over all these years and for all your help. I will always remember you and your family in my prayers. May God bless you all.

Dear Sister Hazel,
God bless you and all of the Campayne family. Your brother was truly a man of humble faith and high learning. "In Sanctitate Et Doctrina". In holiness and learning, he lived out his mortal life among those he loved and who loved him.
