PENTICTON - Well known Penticton philanthropist David E. Kampe has died.

Kampe died yesterday evening, May 8, according to a Peter Brothers Construction media release.

The Kampe family said in the release he was surrounded by loved ones and had a peaceful passing.

“His legacy of generosity and kindness has impacted many in profound ways,” the Kampe family said.

Kampe is well known for his generosity, donating to many public projects in Penticton, most notably his numerous financial contributions to the recent construction of the new hospital care tower at Penticton Regional Hospital, named the David E. Kampe tower in his honour.

Kampe started Peters Brothers Construction Ltd. in 1981, building the team that owns and operates the company today.

“We ask you to find ways to be an extension of this kindness today to each other while you are out in the community. We thank the many diligent doctors and caregivers for their care for the last few years,” the Kampe family said.

The family will announce a date and time for a service to honour Kampe in the coming days.
