"Dick Campbell was one of the first people to come to CEIVA when the doors were opened in 1980. Through CIEVA Dick had a work placement at Baxter’s Dairy where he bagged and tied off bags of ice. He went on a work crew at Maritime Lumber where he helped fill bags of sawdust. While at CIEVA in our Woodworking department, Dick became one of the fastest cut up saw operators at that time. He was also a swim assistant helping staff with the heavy lifting portions of the swim routine. He would often bring beautiful bouquets of dandelions to staff that he had picked on his walk to work. Once he transitioned over to CIEVA Recycling, he could sort bottles and paper, load balers, use the shredder but his most notorious job of all was to greet the customers with his famous big wave, his famous big grin, and his very enthusiastic "hey buddy". There were times when Dick’s humorous side would show, he would open the recycling window, tell the customer "closed", then shut the window. He would immediately open it right back up, showing off that big grin, and laughing that famous laugh. Dick could sometimes be overheard asking staff "want to go on a date" however he always considered Charlene to be his true "hunny" often stated that they were going to get married. Dick retired in 2020 with a career span of 40 years. He will always be considered part of the CIEVA Family. No one loved Tim Hortons coffee, or bologna sandwiches more than Dick. He will forever be remembered by everyone here at CIEVA for his great sense of humor, that huge boisterous laugh that was larger than life and for his very kind and giving heart. "CIEVA
