In loving memory of Graeme Campbell.

On Thursday September 3rd 2020, Graeme Campbell loving husband and father of two sadly died aged 51 in Derby Royal hospital.

Graeme was born in July 1969 and lived his early years in a small village called Lumphanan in Aberdeenshire. After leaving school in 1985 he headed straight for work in the Bank of Scotland in Aberdeen but worked across many branches in Aberdeenshire for many years. He became a Member of The Chartered Institute of Bankers in Scotland in 1995 and became a fully certified in Mortgage Advice and Practice in 2000. He stayed with The Bank of Scotland for 27 years until 2012, when he was unfortunately made redundant during the banking crisis. In 2018 he joined PD Financial Management, which he enjoyed working for as much as he had done in the Bank of Scotland.

Graeme moved down to England in late 2003 along with Fiona whom he had met in Aberdeen in 2001. On August 24th 2007 he married Fiona Blaiklock. They had a son Dylan in 2008 and daughter Erin in 2010.

Graeme had a passion for football from a very early age and played for various teams in Aberdeenshire. After he decided to stop playing football he decided to take up referring and passed his refereeing course in 2002. He really enjoyed refereeing for the Staffordshire League and was highly respected as a "great ref "by the teams he officiated for. Following in his fathers footsteps he managed his son Dylans football team. Even to the end he was wanting to go and watch Dylan and his team play. He was a quiet, kind, gentle man, everyones friend and had a great sense of humour and infectious smile.

He will be greatly missed by Fiona, Dylan and Erin and his parents Alan and Arlene and brother Bruce and other family and friends.

G, you’ve left a big void in so many peoples lives which just shows what a true gent you were. Always there to listen, always had a smile, nothing was to much to ask and no was never an answer. I’ll miss the footie banter and the laughs at our attempts to play golf. We never got to have that next beer that we so looked forward to. Rest in peace pal xxx

I had known Graeme for many years officiating on the Staffordshire County Senior League and every game was a pleasure. Graeme was always the most polite of chaps.....almost a little to nice to be a referee...but always a conscientious and dedicated fellow who often shared a joke regarding his love of Scottish football. The shock of Graeme’s passing takes a lump out of one, realising that one so young should depart...rest in peace my friend...we shared many good times

Graeme was a member of the Referees panel on the Staffordshire County Senior League for a number of years. In all his time on the panel of Referees I had the pleasure of working with Graeme as the Referees Appointment secretary. Graeme was always willing to officiate a game when ever possible and travel any distance without a second thought. I can honestly say that it was a pleasure to have Graeme on our panel of Referees. He is a great loss to his family and the many friends he made within the S C S L

As a first cousin to Arlene, Graeme’s mum, I saw Graeme grow up in a football-loving family in the tight local community setting of Lumphanan. In my early twenties I moved away from Kinker when Graeme was just eight years old but I kept up with his many footballing and career achievements over the years through the close family ties and during holidays on Deeside. I can well recollect Graeme and Fiona’s memorable wedding day and we were highly delighted to meet Dylan and Erin when you all stayed with us en route to West Wales in the summer of 2011. It was a joy to see you all as an energetic and fun-loving family unit. As testified by other friends and family members, we will remember Graeme as a quiet, caring and loving person, a most affable guy who was so very proud of and totally devoted to his family; a credit to his upbringing. He was certainly taken too soon but Fiona, Dylan and Erin, you will continue to make him very proud in the years ahead, the legacy of a great husband and father. We have no words to ease the pain but we extend our sincere condolences to the three of you, also to Arlene, Alan and Bruce and your extended families.

With much Love from Gordon and Helen Middleton

I have some great memories of Graeme, seeing him and Bruce at Granny and Papa's in Kincardine O'Neil. Have fond memories more recently of dancing some Scottish jigs at his and my sisters wedding and playing trivial pursuit when he visited us in Dunblane. He will be very much missed. X

It was an honour and pleasure for our families to grow up together and be able to call each other close friends. We will always remember Graeme as a quiet, kind, gentle man with a good heart and of course a skilled foot baller. Our love and thoughts go out to all the family. Roy, Isabel, Shona and Karen Stewart xx
