Campbell (Cam) Hubert Carew

Say not in grief ‘he is no more’, but in thankfulness that he was.
Passed away peacefully on April 13, 2019 at the Health Sciences Centre, St. John’s, at 85 years of age, with his loving wife and children by his side.

Cam, also known as “Grumps” to family and friends, is predeceased by his father, Johnathan and mother Elizabeth (nee Russell). Leaving to mourn his loving wife of 53 years, Sylvia (nee Legge), son Christopher (Heidi), and daughter Andrea (Paul). Also leaving three grandchildren who were a source of deep pride and love: Sarah, Johnathan and Olivia Carew. “We will miss you, Grumps”.

Cremation has taken place at Carnell’s Funeral Home, with a book of condolence available on the website. A celebration of a life well-lived will take place at a later date. The family have been comforted by the many expressions of condolence, and the memories shared of the character and spirit that was Cam. In lieu of flowers, donations to the St. Bonaventure’s Bursary Program ( or the St. John’s SPCA will be gratefully received.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Hi Sylvia, Chris and Andrea,

So sorry to hear of the passing of Cam. I am so grateful for the time I had spent with him and with you folks in my early days. Thanks to Cam and you Sylvia! I probably would not be where I am today. Cam gave me my first job and from there I was able to better myself and carve out an outstanding life here in Alberta. Thank You and Cam for everything you have done for me. I will always remember driving around the city listening to the radio and his favourite song ” I’m just a Gigilo ” would come on and he would just belt it out. Haha So many great memories. Love to you and the family!
