“Have Fiddle, Will Travel”
Passed away peacefully on Sunday September 26th 2021. Survived by his brother Phil Bonneau. Companion to Wanda Campbell (passed March 2016). Long time resident and master of all trades in Hastings. Member of many fiddle associations including Havelock and Cobourg. Maurice will be sadly missed by his hundreds of friends including those at Rosewood Estates. He will be missed dearly by his family Bill, Julie, Lara, Role and Cole Campbell.
Sorry to hear of your loss. He was a great fiddle player and a wealth of knowledge. I play with the Corktown Fiddlers and he will be missed from our group as well.
Maurice was a member f the Corktown Fiddlers, as am I. One Friday - before Maurice had joined the group - we were playing at the hospital. I heard a sound coming from the corridor. It was Maurice, playing spoons, which I guess he had with him! He always had a big smile and he obviously loved to fiddle. A wonderful soul.
Condolences to Phil and all the Campbell family. Yes, he was Mr. Fixit. New Maurice and Wanda while living in Hastings from 1980 to 1992. His name and number was my first call when I had a problem at the store. I never had tell Wanda who it was calling. Great little man! RIP my friend.
I am devastated to hear of Maurice's passing. He will be sadly missed my me and all of the Corktown fiddlers who he blessed with his skill, humor and kindness. Our deepest sympathies to his family and all who knew him as a friend.
Sincere condolences. My father ( Ernest Skinkle) knew Maurice well. If I'm not mistaken my father sold his violin to Maurice.
