Billie B. Campbell

Billie B Campbell
Billie Bright Campbell, a former long-time Trumansburg NY resident, died on Friday, June 17, 2016 in Oak Ridge Tenn. She was 95.
Billie was born on June 17, 1921 in Eccles, WV to James and Goldie Bright. Her childhood years were spent in Colver, PA, a mining town where her father was a paymaster at a coal mine. She attended High School at nearby Ebensburg, Pa and college at Indiana State University, Indiana Pa, graduating in 1942 with a BS degree in Home Economics. As it was in the midst of WWII, she joined the US Navy WAVES and became a Pharmacist Mate stationed in Cleveland, OH.
After the war, Billie moved to Ithaca NY, first working as a technician in a pathology lab at the Cornell University College of Agriculture and then as an analytical chemist for the GLF (Grange League Federation Exchange), the predecessor to Agway Company.

Billie married Vince Campbell on June 25, 1954 and subsequently moved to Trumansburg. She was a homemaker and also helped with the family boat building and repair business, “The Boat Shop”, located next door to their home on Booth Rd.
Billie delighted in being with her family and friends and spoiling her grandchildren. She enjoyed reading, cooking, baking and knitting, and loved the time at the cottage the family built on Cayuga Lake.
In 2000 Billie and Vince relocated to Oak Ridge TN to be near family.
Billie had a deep and abiding faith and was an active long-time member of the Trumansburg First Methodist Church. She lived her life by the principles her father wrote to her as a child: live simply, expect little, give much; keep your heart from hate, forget self, think of others; do as you would be done by. Her wonderful smile, heart-warming laugh and crazy phrases will be missed by all.
Billie is survived by her sons John and Vince (Ruth) Campbell, sister, Alice (Bright) Burns, grandchildren Stephanie (Brian) Painter, Erica (Aaron) Conroy, Nate (Angela) Campbell, Katelyn and Lucas Campbell and six great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 16, 2016 at 11 AM at the First United Methodist Church chapel, 1350 Oak Ridge Turnpike in Oak Ridge.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Cure Alzheimer's Fund, 34 Washington Street, Suite 200, Wellesley Hills, MA 02481, http://www.curealz.org/
The family would like to thank the staff of NHC-Oak Ridge for Billie's exceptional care during the twilight of her life.

David Thomas Normand

David Thomas Normand, age 85 of Oak Ridge, went to be with our Lord Jesus Christ June 7, 2016.
Tom was born in Wilmington, NC on May 5, 1931, five minutes before his identical twin brother Charlie Normand. He moved to Oak Ridge with his family in 1943 with the beginning of the Manhattan Project and he and Charlie were the only people at Elm Grove who knew someone in their class on the first day of school!

Tom was always very active in athletics and he worked as a lifeguard at the Oak Ridge city pool, where he met the love of his life, Helen on the raft in the summer of 1952, whom he soon married. Tom was truly blessed with Helen as they raised a family and they would have celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary this year.

Tom was an Eagle Scout and he graduated with the class of 1949 from Oak Ridge High School. He served his country honorably during the Korean War as a Staff Sargent in the Marine Corps. He received his BA in Business at UT after his completion of his military service. Tom worked for Prudential Insurance, where he retired in 1988. He was an avid golfer and served on the ORCC Board for many years. He loved football and he officiated games regularly.

Tom served on the Oak Ridge Planning Commission for 28 years and he truly loved working the polls, where he could see all of his friends as they came to vote each year. Tom was one of the original members of the '43 Club and he loved to talk about growing up in Oak Ridge. He had a memory like an elephant and Helen said he sometimes acted like one, too! He loved to celebrate his birthday with family and friends with a Derby Party and he had one of his best parties ever this year!!!!!
He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles “Doc” Normand and Hazel Normand; his brother,
Charlie Normand; and his daughter, Missy Normand.

Tom is survived by his wife, Helen Normand; daughter, Virginia Normand (Knoxville); son, David Normand and his wife Alesia (Murfreesboro); daughter, Nancy McDermott and husband Martin (Bethlehem, PA); son Robert Normand (Oak Ridge); grandchildren, Kristin Jackson (Tomi), Lauren Normand, Mollie Mooney (Tom), RJ Eldredge, Tyler Normand and Brian Normand;
Sister and brother-in-law, Mary and Drake Bush and sister-in-law, Ruth Ritter; nephew, Jim Normand (Mary); seven great-grandchildren; many other nieces and nephews, along with many great-nieces and nephews and friends, all of whom he loved dearly.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 10 am on Friday, June 10, 2016 at the United Church, The Chapel on the Hill, 85 Kentucky Avenue, Oak Ridge, TN with Dr. Randy Hammer officiating.
In lieu of flowers, memorial may be made to the Memorial Fund, United Church, The Chapel on the Hill, or the charity of your Choice.

Miss you
Roland West6/1/2016 12:35:54 AM

Last Ride As the sun sets and the sky grows dim, I think back to the last time I rode with him.
Now he has went away, to a place with no pain and where you can ride everyday.
You are gone now and that ride is in the past, but my brother that memory will forever last.
So, take it easy my brother and don't you fret, cause you and I haven't taken our last ride; JUST YET!!!

Mikey

James (Jim) William Allen

James Allen
James (Jim) William Allen, age 65, of Oak Ridge passed away Tuesday morning May 3, 2016. He was born on November 24, 1950 in Buffalo, New York. Jim had been the organist for the First Presbyterian Church of Oak Ridge for 45 years where his music was celebrated and enjoyed by many. Jim was a nuclear physicist/engineer operating his own company, JWA Engineering, specializing in nuclear power plant safety and more recently for Emerson Process Management creating specialized software for general industry. He attended Albion College, as did his mother and grandmother, receiving a bachelor's degree in nuclear physics and later a PhD at the University of Tennessee in nuclear engineering. Always modest about his academic achievements most of his colleagues did not know of his advanced degrees. He originally moved to Oak Ridge in 1971 as an exchange student from Albion. It was at Albion that his love of organ music blossomed having access to their impressive 5 register pipe organ.

Jim enjoyed playing and watching sports and was an avid Braves baseball and Predators hockey fan. He often went to baseball spring training with his sons. He was an excellent water skier and volleyball player during his younger years. During his youth he enjoyed playing croquet and cribbage with his father, grandfather, and siblings. He loved reading and had devoured Mark Twain, Isaac Asimov, Dave Barry, Michael Crichton, Ian Fleming, and the books of many other authors. One of his great pleasures in recent years was spending time with his granddaughters.

He was preceded in death by his father, Don Allen. Jim is survived by his sons: Bryan and John Allen, granddaughters: Willow and Juniper Allen, brothers: Doug, David, and Kent Allen, sister: Roberta Marton, his mother: Vera Allen, and many beloved cousins, nieces, and nephews. He was an honest amiable man always willing to help others from all walks of life and could always be counted on to do what he said he would do. He is sorely missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting and knowing him.

Family and friends will attend the internment of his ashes at 1:30 pm, Saturday, May 7 at the First Presbyterian Church of Oak Ridge Memorial Garden followed by his organ music and a memorial service celebrating his life beginning at 2:00. Reception in the church's fellowship hall will follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the First Presbyterian Church of Oak Ridge, P.O. Box 6106, Oak Ridge, TN 37831, (865) 483-1318.

Robin Browning5/10/2016 7:17:02 PM

I still cannot believe you are gone Jimmy. You were more like a brother than a cousin to me and my heart breaks everyday knowing I will never be able to talk to you again. You will be sadly missed by your family and the x-in laws of yours will be punished by God for what they have done to you! You will always be in our hearts!! I LOVE YOU!!!
