Obituary of Wilson E. “Bill” Campbell, Jr.

 

Wilson E. Campbell, Jr. “Bill” as most knew him, passed away peacefully on November 19, 2022, in the care of his family and Aveanna Hospice.  He was 77 years old.  Bill was born in Dagsboro, DE on May 17, 1945, to the late Wilson E., Sr. and Edna Mae Brittingham Campbell.

He worked as an electrician with Delaware Power & Light Company for over 43 years.  He became a Mason and was a member of Lodge 37 in Dagsboro.  He also served with the Delaware National Guard.  He collected guns and knives for a hobby, and was an accomplished gardener, growing many kinds of plants and vegetables that he loved.  He enjoyed fishing and shopping with his partner in life.  He was big-hearted, generous and kind.  He was especially excited about Christmas, and was always the first one up, rousting everyone to “hurry up” and get up!  He was hard working and stubborn.  He was often described as a “sweet and sour patch kid.”

 

Bill is survived by his partner in life for 39 years, Lynn Baker, as well as his children: Lori Hudson and husband, Rodney, of Millsboro, DE; and  Danna Sammons, and husband, Jay, of Georgetown, DE..  He also leaves behind his special buddy, “Aunt Karen.”  In addition to his parents, he was preceded by his sister, Nancy E. Campbell, in 2019.

 

Special thanks are accorded to his caregivers: Tam, Fran, Joan and Tee.  A special acknowledgement to Melissa, who always could put a smile on his face, and knew how to “call out” his “not so special banter.”

 

A time of viewing and visitation will be held on Tuesday, November 29 from 12:00 Noon until 1:00 PM for family and friends.   A private committal and interment ceremony will be held later in the day with the family.  In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to the Millsboro Volunteer Fire Company, PO Box 83, Millsboro, DE  19966.
