Mark D. Campbell, 67, of Southwest Harbor, died peacefully in his sleep on the night of Sept. 24, 2020. He was born on Oct. 25, 1952, in Belfast, the son of Sidney S. and Inez I. (McNeil) Campbell.
Mark spent his childhood in Searsport and graduated from Searsport High School. He then spent the next handful of years pursuing a BA at UMaine, which he successfully (and finally) completed. Following college, Mark tried his hand at many professions, including: Somesville walking cop, manager of the Pine Tree Market and bookkeeper at Maine Shellfish.
Mark met his wife, Barbara, and they married in 1983. Two years later, they opened and operated Provisions in Northeast Harbor. His 10 years at Provisions were filled with laughter, love and good food. Following the closing of the store, Mark continued to work as a butcher, this time at Sawyer’s Market and as a bookkeeper at the Northeast Harbor Golf Club. No matter where he worked or what job he had, his favorite part of every day was sharing time with all of those around him, even if that meant he didn’t always finish the daily to-do list.
In his retirement, Mark enjoyed spending time with his friends and family, cooking, playing the piano, model trains and so much more. He was able to take time to travel and create meaningful memories with his family and friends.
The many memories of Mark are carried on in the hearts and actions of his wife, Barbara; son, Ian; daughter Rebecca and her husband, Amr; his sister Marydee Flynn and her children Dianne, Adam and Heather; and countless friends and family members around the world.
A celebration of his life and good humor will be held when it is safe for all of his loved ones to gather and be close to one another as they remember Mark.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in his name to Island Connections (93 Cottage St., Suite 101, Bar Harbor, ME 04609) or the Southwest Harbor-Tremont Ambulance Fund (P.O. Box 437, Southwest Harbor, ME 04679). Both organizations were incredibly important to Mark and close to his heart.
