BOARDMAN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – James L. Campbell, 79, of Boardman passed away Friday, August 26, 2022, with his four children by his side.

Jim was born January 6, 1943 in Youngstown, son of James and Agnes Lally Campbell.

After graduating from Canfield High School, Jim enlisted in the Air Force Reserve.

He later worked at General Electric, then Delphi Packard Electric where he retired after 37 years of service.

Jim valued and worked extremely hard to provide a Catholic education for his children. He had a passion for Cardinal Mooney and Notre Dame sports and all things Pittsburgh.

He also loved shopping trips with his daughters and granddaughters, whom he lovingly referred to as his “babes.” He proudly embraced his Irish heritage. He could always be found at the St. Patrick’s Day parade and making the rounds to local pubs on his favorite holiday.
