Sad news: Neil Campbell has passed away

Many at UFV will be saddened to hear that Neil Campbell, a long-time faculty member in English as a Second Language who served as department head for much of that time, has passed away.

A memorial service was held on Saturday, June 10, at 2 pm at the Abbotsford Evangelical Free Church.

Neil started at what was then Fraser Valley College on Jan 30, 1978, doing English Language Training for the college contract at the Mission Medium Security Institution.

He worked steadily over the years teaching ESL at FVC until his first type “B” permanent contact on August 15, 1982.

He retired on August 31, 2008.

Neil’s son-in-law Joel Feenstra is a UFV faculty member in the Applied and Technical Studies.
