In memory of Dirceu Campos

Monday, August 08, 2022

It is with a profound sense of sadness that we learned of the unexpected passing of our friend and colleague Dirceu Campos. This is an unexpected and difficult loss for us all. If there is any comfort, Dirceu’s family shared that he passed away peacefully.

Dirceu was a valued team member of the UBC Payroll Operations Team. He started with UBC in 2018 as a Leave of Absence/Tuition Waiver Representative and was promoted to a Payroll Specialist role in 2021. Dirceu had a positive impact on many of us as a collaborative, reliable, and supportive professional.

I had the pleasure of working closely with Dirceu during my time as Director, Payroll Operations. I always valued his assistance and his great sense of humor. I believe he will be remembered by all of us as a happy, kind, caring and wholesome person. We will miss him deeply.

If you need any assistance processing this news, please reach out to our Employee Assistance provider, Morneau Shepell, at their Care Access Centre which is available 24 hours, seven days a week, at 1-800-387-4765. We will share more information about how to pay our respect to Dirceu’s family as they share with us. In the interim, there will be a memory book for staff to share their condolences, available in Wesbrook (5958 Webber Lane) until noon tomorrow, and at TEF 3 (6190 Agronomy Road) tomorrow afternoon.
