Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (C) James R. Campbell
R. "Jim" Campbell died peacefully at his home in New York City on Friday
February 9th around 2 pm. Jim was battling lung cancer that was diagnosed
in August of 2006.
A native of Ohio who served in the United States Air Force and was a
graduate of Yale University, Jim worked in the transportation industry and
was the former VP of Human Resources for the Long Island Bus Company. He
was a devout Christian who loved his service as a deacon of the Episcopal
Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City.
Jim was a proud Scottish-American and was very active in New York's
Scottish Community. He was a member of Saint Andrew's Society of the
State of New York. He worked tirelessly on the National Tartan Day New
York Committee and helped with the National Tartan Day parade. Jim was
the 73rd Chief of the New York Caledonian Club, and he was very active as
Chairman of the Finance Committee and the former New York City Trustee for
of Clan Campbell (North America).
Jim will be sorely missed by his friends and the New York City
Scottish-American community. A memorial service will be held on Wednesday
February 14th at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in Manhattan.
