James Benton Campbell


James Benton “Jimmy” Campbell, 74, McGrath’s Mountain, passed away, Sunday, February 12, 2023.


Born on McGrath’s Mountain, he was a son of the late John Peter and Catherine Mary (McGrath) Campbell. In earlier years, he was employed in forestry, working in the forest and local sawmills. He was a member of the former St. Andrew’s Roman Catholic Church, Egerton, enjoyed playing guitar and hanging out with friends. Jimmy faithfully contacted friends on his “call list” everyday, making sure they were doing okay.  He enjoyed the solitude of the mountain, the ability to view the stars with out the interference of lights and the companionship of his cat, Jack. For Jimmy “Life has changed; not ended!”


Surviving are his brother, Vernon (Marlene), Broadway; brother-in-law, Kent “Bubs”, Linacy; several nieces and nephews.


Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his “second mother”, Theresa; sisters, Betty and Doris; brothers, Dan, Vincent, Bernie and Cally; sister-in-law, Simone.


A graveside service will be held at a later date in St. Andrew’s Cemetery, Egerton.


Donations may be made in memory of Jimmy to St. Andrew's Cemetery, Egerton.
