3112 Dr John D Campbell – Class of 1953

Peacefully at home, in his sleep.

John was a loving husband, father, uncle and friend. He lived life to the full and brought fun and happiness with him. A respected family doctor and, latterly, GP Psychotherapist, he helped many over his lifetime. His enthusiasms of skiing, sailing, the cottage and model railroading continued for as long as he was able. He is survived by his wife Barbara; children Alison, Michael (Marguerite) and Rosalie (Rob) and their mother Barbara; grandchildren Sasha, Bridget (Dean), Gareth, Owen and Rosalie; brother David and sister Rosalie and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, and was pre-deceased by his sister Claire.

There was be an informal ‘drop in’ get together – an opportunity to share memories and anecdotes of John – on Saturday April 9 at the Church Hall of St George’s Anglican in Newcastle. Charitable donations, if desired, to the Cancer Society.


5228 Phil Antonsen – Class of 1961

The sad news is that Phil passed away last evening at KGH – 28 July. Phil had experienced a serious stroke in February while vacationing in Florida.

About a month ago he experienced a seizure and was subsequently diagnosed with lung and brain cancer.

A few days ago he was admitted to hospital with pneumonia.

Phil was the very active secretary of the Class of 1961 and contributed considerable effort to supporting his class’s sponsorship of the decorative painting in the Currie Building. He will be missed. I have no other details and one of his classmates might want to contribute a more detailed obituary.
