Our long-time friend in Rotary, Chat Campbell, passed away peacefully on October 31st of this year at the age of 92. He died after a lengthy, courageous battle from throat cancer and pneumonia.
Chat was a humble, outgoing and humorous Rotarian that always seemed to have a smile on his face and words of encouragement. A former marketing executive he was always willing to generously give of his time especially if it involved the youth in our community.
One of the original “Reading By Nine” Rotarians in the Club he spent some of his spare time counseling troubled youth.
He designed bookmarks for the school and advertised our events in the local press.
Chat grew up on a farm and served in the military both during World War II and Korea.
A short celebration of his life will be held on Thursday afternoon November 29, 2:00pm at the Blue Water Grill. Nancy Campbell, his wife and former President of the Redondo Beach Rotary Club will host.
Bring your fun stories and anecdotes of Chat’s life.
We are blessed to have known Chat, he will be missed. He was a good man and Rotarian.
