Campbell, James Lee  
DOVER - Dr. James Lee Campbell, Jr., passed away unexpectedly on Monday, April 11, 2016. He was a respected dermatologist and a beloved member of the Dover community. Jim is survived by his daughter Sara, his son Jonathan, his furry children Carly, Carter, and Snoopy, his sister Jennifer and BroMo, his sister Janine, two Mikes, a Sean, his beloved fiancée Kristin Martin and so many others who loved him dearly. He graduated from Haverhill High School in 1980, Bates College in 1984, and earned a Master's degree in epidemiology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 1987. Jim was accepted into the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College where he graduated first in his class, receiving the Dean's Medal in 1993. Jim continued on with a dermatology residency at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and began his practice of medicine on the South Shore of Massachusetts before returning to New Hampshire to start his own practice in Dover. Jim was an avid fly fisherman and a diehard Boston Red Sox fan. He loved to laugh and rock out to Bruce Springsteen and Zac Brown on long drives. He enjoyed identifying constellations and stars, and was excited and curious about the natural world. His passion for salmon and steelhead fishing took him on frequent weekend trips to his favorite spots in upstate New York and rare, special trips to Labrador, Canada with a group of close friends. Jim was generous with his time, his effort and his smile. He frequently treated his staff, friends, and family to outings at Fenway Park that left lifelong memories. He contributed to countless charitable efforts, including Make Big Change, a nonprofit organization he founded to raise skin cancer awareness. In recent years, Jim discovered Maui, where he felt truly at peace and planned to retire one day. He loved to bring his friends and family to the Secret Beach. Dr. Campbell was predeceased by his father James L. Campbell, Sr. and his sister, Julie and most recently Ann "Joyce" Campbell, his mother.

Canney, Arlene Rosa  
SOMERSWORTH - Arlene Rosa Canney, 74, of 11 Canney Court, passed away Sunday, April 24, 2016, at her home after a long illness. Born August 31, 1941, in Rochester, N.H., she is the daughter of the late Ambrose and Eva (Demers) LaFleur and loving wife of the late Herman C. "Fudda" Canney. Arlene was a life-long resident of Somersworth. She was a graduate of Somersworth High School class of 1959 where she met the love of her life "Fudda" whom she married and shared 55 wonderful years. In the early years of marriage, Arlene was a self-employed babysitter so she could spend as much time as possible with her own young children. Once the children were in school, Arlene began a career as an Administrative Assistant, eventually retiring from the University of New Hampshire. She was a faithful communicant of Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Somersworth, N.H., and volunteered at the Maplewood School foster grandparent program after retiring. She was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and aunt. She loved to go on cruises and take trips to Branson Missouri for music festivals. She loved knitting, several family members have matching Christmas stockings knit by her and new babies were outfitted with beautiful sweaters and blankets. She and Fudda attended every sporting event, dance recital, school play, sometimes several on one day. Her grandchildren were treated to days at Lake Wentworth, hikes on Blue Job mountain and trips to York's Wild Kingdom just to name a few. She celebrated every birthday and holiday to assure her family was together. At times she hosted up to 35 guests for Thanksgiving and pulled it off flawlessly. Christmas was always a special time at their house. Everyone was spoiled! Their gift-wrapping system was something to be desired, "bagged, tagged and inventoried." Arlene lived her life to make others happy and she did it well. She will be greatly missed by so many. Members of her family include her sons; Daniel Canney and his wife Kim of Somersworth, N.H., James Canney and his wife Sheila of Alton, N.H., her Daughters; Brenda Auger and her husband Phil of Melbourne Beach, Fla., and Suanne Peters and her husband Robert of Jacksonville, Fla.

Obituaries from the Past Week

Catalfo Jr., Alfred  
GATLINBURG, Tenn. - Attorney Alfred Catalfo, Jr., 99, passed away peacefully on Thursday, April 14, 2016, in Sevierville, Tenn. He was a respected trial lawyer, longtime member of the Dover community, and a legend. He was born on January 31, 1917, in Lawrence, Mass., the son of Alfio and Vincenza (Amato) Catalfo. He leaves his wife and companion of 44 years, Attorney Gail Varney Catalfo, of Gatlinburg, Tenn. He was predeceased in 1968 by his first wife, Caroline Mosca Catalfo, the mother of his three beloved children, Attorney Alfred T. Catalfo, III, of Dover; Attorney Carole J. Catalfo of Louisville, Ky.; and Dr. Gina Mireault and her husband, Dr. Jay Mireault, of Waterbury Center, Vt. He leaves four grandchildren, Gina Catalfo Nelson and her husband, Derek Nelson, of Dover; Alfred (Freddie) R.T. Catalfo, IV, of Dover; Alfred (Al) Mireault of San Francisco, Calif.; and Carolynn (Lynn) Mireault of New York City. Survivors include his beloved sister-in-law, Patricia Catalfo, sister Frances Morang, mother-in-law Jeanette Varney, Donna Labrie Hunt, several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his siblings, Joseph Catalfo, Salvatore (Sam) Catalfo, Mary Gilbert and Ida McClendon. Fred's first language was Italian. Upon completing the eighth grade, he worked in a mill full-time for five years to help support his family. He could not speak English well until he entered high school at the age of 19 but eventually became editor of the school newspaper. He graduated from Berwick Academy in 1940 and attended the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Despite never having been out of New England, he was elected University of Alabama Freshman Class President. He was a member of the Alabama Crimson Tide football team. Although the smallest member of the team, he made up for it with heart and determination, which he displayed in all aspects of his life. He served his country as a U.S. Navy pilot in World War II, rising to the rank of Lieutenant Commander. During his service, he was in a plane crash which left him on the critical list for eleven days, then in an arm and body cast for nine months. He was a World War II 100% service-connected Disabled American Veteran. Fred has been a member of the New Hampshire Disabled American Veterans for 72 years where he served as Department Commander and as Judge Advocate, a position he held for over 60 years until his death. He leaves his beloved brothers and sisters of the New Hampshire D.A.V. and Auxiliary. Following World War II, Fred graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a B.A. Degree in History. He then entered Boston University School of Law where he completed the three-year curriculum in two years, graduated, and was sworn in to the New Hampshire Bar in 1947. He remained a member of the New Hampshire Bar until his death and was also admitted to the Tennessee Bar at age 91. While practicing law, he obtained a Master's Degree in History from U.N.H., writing "The History of the Town of Rollinsford" as his Master's thesis. He practiced law for 59 years, well into his eighties, the last 15 of those with his wife and son. Fred's commanding and colorful presence in the courtroom, his trial skills, and his mentorship of other attorneys are legendary. Fred loved politics. He was elected Strafford County Attorney for two terms and served as State Chairman of the Democratic Party where he helped elect his good friend, John F. Kennedy, as President of the United States. He was a Kennedy delegate to the 1960 Democratic Convention in Los Angeles. In 1962, he was Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate. He served as aide-de-camp to three New Hampshire Governors and entertained many prominent presidential candidates in his Dover home. In 2006, he moved to Gatlinburg, Tenn., in the Great Smoky Mountains, where he wrote his autobiography, "Undefeated, Scored On Once," published in 2014. The title has a dual meaning: As head coach of the Berwick Academy football team while he was a college student, he coached the team to an "undefeated, scored-on-once" season; and, following his plane crash in World War II, he successfully challenged a surgeon who wanted to amputate his arm. He had just completed a second book yet to be published about his legal career. He was a member of numerous organizations over the years including American Legion Post 8, Disabled American Veterans Chapter 5, Knights of Columbus, Loyal Order of Moose, Dover Elks and the Navy League of America. SERVICES: Calling hours will be Friday, April 29, 2016, from 4-7 p.m., at the Wiggin-PurdyMcCooey-Dion Funeral Home, 655 Central Avenue, Dover, N.H. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2016, at 10 a.m., at St. Joseph Church - Parish of the Assumption, 150 Central Ave., Dover, N.H.
