Robert E. Camara. of Waukesha rose with Christ on Easter Sunday April 17, 2022, at the age of 76. He was born in Fall River, Massachusetts, July 10, 1945, the son of Charles and Delia (nee: Leonce) Camara of Tiverton, Rhode Island. He served in the Navy aboard the USS Yancey. While in the service he met his wife Nancy and they married in 1968. He worked as an electronics technician until becoming disabled in 1983. In spite of his traumatic injurie’s, he never lost his sense of humor and his love for life. He fought through more near-death illnesses than a cat with 9 lives.
He will be sadly missed by his wife of 54 years, Nancy, and their children, Angela (Jeff) Tjugum of Okauchee, and Scott (Jenell) Camara of Waukesha, his sister Joan Clark, and his brother Charles (Marie) Camara both of Tiverton, Rhode Island. He is further survived by his loving grandchildren Aleena Tjugum, Maci Camara, Airman Coleman Tjugum, and Brady Camara, step grandchildren Connor, Corey, and Cheyenne Fuchs, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
The family would like to thank the ACAP program, especially Carol Kay for teaching us there is life after disability and still opportunity for service to the community. Also Thank you to Nathan and Compassionate Care Hospice for being with him until the end.
