James D. Campbell, at 80
James D. Campbell, 80, of Hull, died Jan. 28, in Pompano Beach, Florida. 
Born in Somerville, Mr. Campbell was a 1954 graduate of St. Patrick’s High School in Watertown and a proud graduate of St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia. 
Mr. Campbell, along with his wife, Janet, operated the Century Irish Pub in Falmouth for 20 years, and Century Irish Items, a wholesale company selling Irish products. The couple founded and coordinated the Scituate St. Patrick’s Day Parade for many years. 
A loyal New England Patriots season ticketholder since 1960, Mr. Campbell was named “Fan of the Year” by the Patriots in 1995, and in 1999 was the first Patriots fan to enter the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, in their new section called the “Visa Hall of Fans.” Mr. Campbell cheered on the Patriots from right behind the bench at five Super Bowls. 
His second passion was travelling around the world with his wife, with stops in China, Australia, New Zealand, Cuba, and twice in Russia. They both earned membership in the Travelers Century Club, which recognizes people who travel to more than 100 countries. 
The cherished husband of the late Janet Campbell, he is survived by many extended family members.
