Joseph F. Camillo Sr., born in Bridgeport, CT, December 16, 1921, beloved husband of the late Agnes V. Szobota Camillo for 61 years, passed peacefully into eternal rest Saturday, February 11, 2017. He was surrounded by his loving family in his home in Lewiston, Maine. Dad served as a U.S.Army Sergeant during WWII in the European Campaign. Proud to be a veteran, Dad loved to share his stories and memories, and wore his WW veteran cap everywhere he went.
Dad enjoyed his work as a tool and die maker for forty-five years. He loved family gatherings, lobster, playing cards, Chinese checkers, fishing and the simple pleasure of basking in the sun on a warm day. His favorite day was one with “not a cloud in the sky”. His love of music was passed on to his family and he supported many years of lessons. He was kind and appreciative of his family and all of his caregivers. He is survived by his son Joseph Camillo Jr. and wife Rose Ann; daughters Joyce Camillo Gray and husband Harry, and Marie Camillo Reimensnyder and husband Tim; grandchildren Christopher Camillo, Sarah Camillo Lekas, Nathan and Louis Reimensnyder; and great grand children, Daxos and Adeleine Lekas.
