It is with saddened hearts that we announce the passing of Don Campbell on February 14th, 2016.

S.T.A. Executive Director, 'Turf Tips' writer and editor of our 'TURFTALK' newsletter, Don Campbell was an asset to our industry for decades!

A member in the turfgrass community for more than 60 years, Don started his career at Riverside Country Club in Saskatoon as a caddy, eventually becoming the course Superintendent. He finished his career as the General Manager at the very same course.

In 2004, Don was awarded the CGSA John B. Steel Distinguished Service Award, recognizing his lifetime commitment to turf care.

Don is survived by his wife Marie and three children: Sherril, Glen and Doug.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Martin's United Church with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, please support CARG or The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Saskatchewan.

Arrangements entrusted to Kari Peters, Park Funeral Chapel 306.244.2103.
