Hugh Campbell Wasson peacefully passed away suddenly on Sept. 30, 2009 at his home in Williams Lake.

Family and friends gathered together for his service at the Royal Canadian Legion in Williams Lake on Oct. 09, 2009.

In accordance to his wishes he was cremated.

Hugh Campbell was born on Jan. 21, 1937 in Greenock, Scotland. He immigrated to Canada when he was 17 years old, and joined the Royal Canadian Navy. He was stationed in Halifax, N.S., where he met and married our mom Elsie. After completing his service with the Navy, they moved to the Richmond/White rock area in B.C. They lived there for many years, where he was employed with the Boiler Makers Union. Hugh spent 2 years over in India working on a major dam. Upon his return from India, he worked for Otis Elevators until his retirement.

Hugh was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion, where he loved to play darts and enjoyed the meat draws.

A favorite pass time of his was making Sunday suppers. He always had a open door policy, for unexpected guests. His famous yorkshire puddings were first come, first serve, so we all scrambled to get at least one. Another pass time Hugh enjoyed, was working with wood. He especially loved working with Cedar. He made his family many cherished treasures over the years.

Hugh and Elsie eventually moved to Quesnel in 2002, where they found the home of their dreams. Hugh also got the workshop he always wanted where he continued to make his cedar treasures until his passing.

Hugh was predeaced by his loving wife of 45 years.

Survived by his ten children, many grandchildren/great grandchildren. Nephew Robin Wasson and family in England U.K. Ella Lewis-Spicer, Margorie Watts, Reta Froese (Lyle), Joe Whalen (Heather), Isobel Consavage (Joe), Val Bouillon (Rene), Shirley Young (Bob), Joann Hartnett (Ron), Robert Whalen (Carole), Linda Whalen-Wasson.

He will be missed by his family and many friends.

Dad and Mom, you are together again for eternity in each other arms, as love never fades. Until we meet again, we love and miss you.
