George Ryan Campbell, 57, passed away peacefully on June 19, 2018, at his home in Clarks Green surrounded by his loved ones. George was the husband of Marion Hillmann Campbell.
He was born on Dec. 21, 1960, in West Orange, N.J., to Rita (Ryan) and the late Robert Campbell. He graduated from West Orange High School and later attended Rowan College in New Jersey. By profession, he was an accomplished chef and real estate appraiser. He enjoyed working out at the local YMCA, eating good food, meeting new people; but most of all, he loved his family.
