Town Board Honors the Life of Glenn Campbell, Disabilities Advocate

Town Seal

Farmingville, NY – At the July 15 Town Board meeting, Supervisor Ed Romaine presented a proclamation to Maryellen Campbell, wife of the late Glenn Campbell, who recently passed away at age 50. Mr. Campbell was a lawyer, a disabilities advocate and the first Chairman of the Town of Brookhaven’s Disability Task Force. At the age of 16, he was involved in a bicycle accident that left him a quadriplegic. The injuries didn’t stop him from attending college and law school, becoming an attorney focusing on disability law, discrimination, elder law, wills, trusts and estates. In addition to his law practice, Mr. Campbell was active on several advisory boards including the Suffolk County Disability Advisory Board and the Association of Mental Health and Awareness.
