James P. Campbell

March 12, 1938 — February 22, 2018

SWANTON -James P. Campbell, age 79, passed away peacefully Thursday, February 22, 2018 at the Pines Rehabilitation and Health Center in Lyndonville, Vermont.

He was born in Swanton, Vermont on March 12, 1938 to the late Raymond and Bernadette (Lauzon) Campbell.

James grew up and went to school in Swanton, graduating from St. Marys in 1955. He joined the Vermont Army National Guard in 1955 and received an honorable discharge in 1961. He then worked as a truck driver for Marcel Trucking Company and Quinn Freight Lines before starting a 32-year long career at Union Carbide and Eveready.

James was a true outdoorsman. He loved taking his bride, Nancy out on the Missisquoi River in his beloved boat to enjoy the peaceful waters. James was also known as an avid hunter; he thoroughly loved duck hunting, deer hunting and attempted to harvest a moose, but his luck ran out. Having his brothers and their families at hunting camp was one of his favorite pastimes. James and Nancy would often camp at Lake Carmi State Park and enjoyed lots of quality family time, making memories.

He is survived by his wife, Nancy (Tatro) Campbell; their 3 children, James Campbell and his wife Debbie, Carol Campbell and Wendy Campbell all of Swanton; grandchildren, Christopher and Patricia and great grandchildren, Ashlee and Hayden; and several nieces, nephews and cousins. Besides his parents, James was predeceased by his siblings, Donald, Ronald, Gary Stephanie, and Rita and a grandson, Nathan Campbell.

James family would like to thank the Pines Rehabilitation and Health Center staff for the wonderful care they provided to James.
