Vernon V. Campbell Jr., 49, drywall technician

April 05, 2003

Vernon Vincent Campbell Jr., a drywall technician for Summit Interior Construction in Frederick, died of renal failure Tuesday at North Arundel Hospital. The Glen Burnie resident was 49.

He was born in Baltimore, and raised in Glen Burnie, where he graduated from high school in 1971.

He was a carpenter for several local firms and later loaded packages onto planes for FedEx Corp. at Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

Then he became a drywall technician and worked for Hyland Contracting and then Summit Interior Construction.

Mr. Campbell enjoyed lifting weights at Bally Total Fitness and Gold's Gym in Glen Burnie. He also had a black belt in karate.

"He was so fit all the time, that's why his death is such a shock," said his sister Judy Tucker of Glen Burnie.

He was an avid reader of books dealing with technical subjects, his sister said.

"He just liked knowing how everything worked," Mrs. Tucker said.

Plans for services were incomplete yesterday.

Mr. Campbell is also survived by two daughters, Janet Campbell of Petersburg, Va., and Denise Brown of Silver Spring; two brothers, Mike Campbell and John Campbell, both of Glen Burnie; another sister, Chris Harper of Annapolis; and three grandchildren.
