Obituary of Leon Gerald Campeau

Please share a memory of Leon to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Leon Gerald “Jerry” Campeau, 85, US Army, longtime Libertyville resident, passed away February 28, 2021 at his home surrounded by family. Jerry was a well-loved leader and successful CFO of Deutsche Bank Credit Corporation until retirement. Jerry's two most important things in life were his family and his faith. He was a regular attendee at football, baseball, soccer, and volleyball games with his grandchildren. He also enjoyed the theatre productions in which his grandchildren participated. A joy for Jerry was singing his favorite hymns in church, and even in his last hours he was humming the hymns. Jerry also loved sports; he was an avid golfer and was a regular at the Sunday morning pickup baseball games. Baseball, golf and card playing were his favorite past times. His warm smile and personality will be deeply missed by all.   

Jerry is survived by his loving wife Rosalie of 61 years; his much-loved children Anne (Barry) Ruffell, Kathleen Shepley, Patricia (Geoff) Apgar, and Philip (Claudia) Campeau; his adoring grandchildren Steven (Betsy), Scott,  Elise, Mark Jr. (Ellen), Michelle,  Jessica, Elizabeth, Collin, Matthew, Ryan, Jonathan, Christopher, Anthony, and Michael, and his great granddaughters Brynn and Blair.  He is survived by his cherished brother Larry Campeau. Jerry is preceded in death by his beloved sisters Carol Wasik and Rosemary Pettinnatto, and his parents Charlotte and Leon Campeau.
