Grand Lake Stream – Joseph Ralph Campbell Sr., 81, passed away Saturday, November 30, 2019 at his home surrounded by his family. Joe was born in Brewer on April 20, 1938, son of Robert and Marjorie (Arey) Campbell.

After graduating from John Bapst Memorial High School in Bangor, Joe enlisted in the U.S. Navy, where he served for 10 years. Following his service, he returned to Maine and enlisted in the Army National Guard in Calais, from which he retired. Joe started working at Down East TV and started his own company in Calais, Campbell’s TV. Eventually he started working for Georgia Pacific, retiring in 2000 from the Instrumentation Department.

Joe loved the outdoors and enjoyed golfing, making golf clubs, roasting coffee, making homemade English muffins, reading, and going for walks in nature while watching wildlife. After the death of his wife Gail, he moved to Grand Lake Stream to live with his sister where he was able to enjoy more nature walks and wildlife watching.

In addition to his parents, Joe was predeceased by his wife Gail Campbell; his brother Robert Campbell Jr; and two brothers-in-law, Damon Curtis and Paul Donovan. Surviving are his two children, his son, Joseph R. Campbell Jr and wife Diana, and his daughter Lisa Pabon; grandchildren, Samantha and Christopher Campbell, and Eric and Shane Cresser; great-granddaughter Peyton Cresser; three sisters, Linda Curtis, Carol Donovan and Evelyn Peggy Bryant and her husband Gordon; sister-in-law Jacklyn Campbell; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In keeping with Joe’s wishes, there will be no services. In lieu of flowers, donations in Joe’s memory may be made to either the Frank Beckett Center, PO Box 384, Calais, ME 04619, or to PAWS, 368 South St., Calais, ME 04619. Arrangements by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.

RIP my ole friend. Haven't seen him in years but always considered him a close friend because if I needed something I know I could always depend on him. Many laughs and good times with Joe in Calais all those years ago. Installed many four speaker 8 tracks under his watchful guidance. Our condolences to his family.
