He was the loving husband of Sandra (Richardson) Campbell and dear father to James B. Campbell Jr. of Carver, Kevin Campbell and his wife Maria also of Carver, and Stacey Petroski of Braintree. James was predeceased by his daughter Kelly Campbell of Hull.  James was the beloved grandfather of Lily, Tomas, Brianna, Tommy, Shawna, and JD., and his great-grandchildren Reilly, Joey and Jaxson. He also leaves behind his brothers, a sister, nieces, nephews, and many cousins. He is predeceased by his brother William Campbell and sister Phyllis Kitson.

James was a Navy Veteran, serving his country during the Vietnam War. Upon discharge he became a mechanic, fulfilling his love of cars and motorcycles. Other passions of James were music of all types, food, sunsets, and of course his dogs.
