OWLS HEAD — Keanu Ian Campbell, 21, passed away unexpectedly, Friday, November 12, 2021.

Born on August 14, 2000 in Rockport, Keanu attended local schools as well as classes in welding.

Most often, he could be found working with his father as a sternman whether lobstering or scalloping. He was always willing to lend a hand when asked and took great pride in a job well done.

While living briefly in Florida, he learned to tile with his brother, and was very proud of the scope of the projects they took on. He loved the ocean, and when not working would often take walks or just sit at his grandmother’s beach.

He and his fiancé, Ruth, enjoyed going on long drives and finding new places to go out to lunch. The newest member of his family, a cat named Blick that he and Ruth adopted, he adored.

His gentle manner, quiet sense of humor, and ready smile will be sorely missed.

Flint, III (Martha) of West Rockport; step-brothers, Owen and Cameron Littlehale of Union, as well as cousins, Skye Conley of Portland, David Flint (Mair) of Scarborough, and Alice Flint (Alex) of Santa Monica, California.
