CAMP­BELL Michael ‘Sharkey’

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -

North­side East Bay

It is with deep sad­ness that we an­nounce the pass­ing of Mike ‘Sharkey’ Camp­bell, 60, af­ter a de­ter­mined and coura­geous bat­tle with can­cer, on July 16, 2015.

Sharkey, as he was known to many, was a kind, com­pas­sion­ate and car­ing hus­band, fa­ther, son, brother, un­cle and grand­fa­ther.

He was the son of An­gus Camp­bell and the late Betty Camp­bell of East Bay.

He is sur­vived by his part­ner, Ch­eryl Young, his son Matthew Camp­bell, and stepchil­dren, Amanda (Graham) Mac­Don­ald and Ash­ley (Billy) Quirk; sis­ters, Marg MacIn­nis, Liz (Bill) Mac­Don­ald, Judy (Bernie) MacPhee and sis­ter-in-law Su­san Camp­bell, all of East Bay; broth­ers, David, Grand Prairie, and Jody (Angie) of Syd­ney. He is also sur­vived by his step­sis­ter Shauna (David) Ma­cLean, step­brother Rob­bie (Heather) Ma­cLean; grand­chil­dren, Han­nah, Le­land and Shyanne; neph­ews, Johnathan, John and Phillip, as well as nieces Norma, Lee Beth and Melissa and also by his grand­nephew Peter Harty.

He was pre­de­ceased by his mother, Betty Camp­bell, step­mother Rene Ma­cLean, broth­ers, John Murdock and Peter, and brother-in-law Stephen MacIn­nis.

Sharkey worked in the truck­ing busi­ness all his life, while spend­ing the last 20 years with Ar­mour-Pole Star. He was an avid, die-hard Toronto Maple Leafs fan and never gave up on them win­ning a Stan­ley Cup. In say­ing that, we ask that you wear any Maple Leafs at­tire to a cel­e­bra­tion of his life, which will be held Mon­day, July 20 at 2:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s Parish East Bay. The fam­ily will re­ceive friends and visi­tors in the foyer from 1-2:30 p.m. In­ter­ment in East Bay Ceme­tery. There will be a re­cep­tion at the East Bay Fire Hall fol­low­ing.

Do­na­tions can be made to the Cape Bre­ton Can­cer Cen­tre, Pal­lia­tive Care or the char­ity of your choice.
