We remember AFHS volunteer Bill Campbell
It is always a sad day when we must report the loss of a member and volunteer, and none will be more missed than Bill Campbell. Bill was a dynamic chair of the PR Committee and also taught some of our classes. He left us on Monday, 6 May 2013.
Bill's funeral will be held on Monday, 13 May 2013, 10 a.m. at McInnes & Holloway on Banister Road. There will be an obituary in Thursday's Herald.
In the meantime, you can read more about Bill on our blog.
Update: Bill's family has posted an obituary here.
