VERO BEACH, Fla. – John W. “Jack” Campbell Jr., 83, passed away surrounded by family and friends Satur-day, Jan. 26, 2008, in Vero Beach, Fla. Jack was born March 18, 1924, in Bangor, to John W. Campbell and Frances Townsend Campbell. He graduated from Bangor High School in 1941 and spent a postgraduate year at Culver Military Academy before entering West Point in 1942. Three long years later with no summer breaks and four academic years compressed into three, he graduated with the Class of 1945. After earning his wings, he flew C-47’s in the Berlin Airlift where he logged over 1,000 flight hours bringing relief supplies into Soviet-blockaded West Berlin. Over his 20-year Air Force career, he held several positions within the Strategic Air Command, ending his service at the Pentagon where he helped formulate nuclear deterrence policy. After retiring as a lieutenant colonel in June, 1965, he returned “home” to Bangor to join his father in the timberland management business. He expanded that business to include real estate development and residential/commercial property management, staying active in these pursuits until very recently. He is survived by his wife, Joanie; sons, Michael and Barbara, and Chip and Molly; daughters, Leslie, Lynn and Hugh and Leigh and Gary; five grandchildren, Sean, Catherine, James, Jack and Allison; his sister, Pauline C. Carlisle; several nieces and nephews, and legions of treasured friends. A memorial service was held Tuesday, Jan. 29, at John’s Island Pavillion, with a reception after at the Island Room at John’s Island Club. There will be a second memorial service this summer at his beloved Sorrento, at a time to be determined. In lieu of flowers, please send contributions to the Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice Foundation, 1110 35th Lane, Vero Beach, FL 32960 or to Village Improvement Association (VIA), General Delivery, Sorrento, ME 04677.
