Funeral is held for Dr Angus Campbell
The funeral is taking place today (Friday) of a wellloved Arran GP, who has died after a short illness.
Dr Angus Campbell, who was 65, died at home in Lamlash last Wednesday surrounded by his family.
A statement issued by Arran Medical Group read: ‘It is with deep sadness that we advise that our longstanding colleague Dr Angus Campbell died on Wednesday.
‘Angus was an exceptionally trusted, experienced, kind and compassionate man whose door was always open for advice, counsel or laughter. We will miss him terribly. Our thoughts are with Yolly and Angus’s family at this time.’
Dr Campbell, who retired in December last year after 36 years as a GP, first moved to Arran with Yolly and his family in 1981.
Originally from Carlisle, he was an equally familiar face in the sailing community and also played a long-serving role in the Arran RNLI and helped established the Arran Coastal Rowing Club.
In February, more than 100 of his recent and past colleagues held a ceilidh at the Whiting Bay to mark his retirement.
Dr Campbell is survived by Yolly, his children Colin, Euan, Jenny and Jamie, and three grandchildren.
His funeral, which is expected to be exceptionally busy, is taking place today (Friday) at noon at Lamlash Cemetery to which all are welcome, as well as afterwards at the Drift Inn.
