Colin Campbell, a former Oak Bay High band director and teacher, died July 4 after a motorcycle crash near Ladysmith.

The BC Coroner office confirmed the 61-year-old Parksville resident was driving the motorcycle on the Trans-Canada Highway near Oyster-Sto’Lo Road when it collided with a vehicle stopped at the intersection shortly after 2 p.m. on June 30.

Campbell and his passenger were taken to hospital where Campbell died July 4.

Campbell was well-known for his music in Victoria and as an inspiration to former students at Oak Bay High.


He was among the first 10 inductees to be honoured last November in the school’s inaugural Distinguished Fine Arts Alumni.
