Biography

Eulogy for Luis M. Camarena (1949 - 2019) by Luis A. Camarena (Grandson)



My Eulogy for “Abuelito”:


Good morning. I stand here today as the oldest grandchild and only grandson of this wonderful man I call “Abuelito”. Luis Miret Camarena was the most kind, loving, and caring man that I will always remember. We are all gathered here today to give thanks to his remarkable life, but I would prefer to discuss about some of my best memories with him and what he was grateful for. The things that were very important to him.

My grandfather loved his family. He was a spectacular son, brother, husband, father and grandfather and for that we will never forget him. One of the finest memories I can recall is when me and my family would watch my father and uncles play baseball games while my uncles were at Cathedral Catholic High School from 2009 to 2011. Abuelito enjoyed charting down the points of both teams while watching the game. When his boys would do something remarkable, he would mark it and yell, “Yeah!”.

One of my greatest memories with my grandfather was traveling with him and my family. We appreciated going to the East Coast, and loved visiting cities such as Tampa and Daytona Beach from 2012 to 2017. One of Abuelito’s favorite locations to visit in that region was Busch Gardens. That’s because it is similar to a half amusement park and half zoo. My grandfather truly loved animals, from the majestic lion at the zoo to the wild rabbits and the many birds that came to visit his backyard in Bonita.

He would often share stories with me and my family about his life, especially about when he was young. Abuelito was born and raised in Tijuana, Baja California, is the oldest of seven children and his parents were Luis Camarena and Maria Antoinetta Miret. My grandfather had four brothers and two sisters. He was a major example, especially for his younger siblings. My great-grandfather, his father, passed away in 1976 when he was about 27 years old. It was difficult for the whole family to lose him, but Abuelito was strong and stepped up to become an excellent leader and guide for his family.

He and my Abuelita loved hanging out with Sofia, Miranda, and I. Both of them appreciated taking care of us and they took us to fun places such as the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, the beach and the movie theater. I truly enjoyed those outings and I will never forget them. I believe my favorite outing was going the beach. We loved walking in the sand, listening to the waves of the ocean, and speaking together there as we strolled across Coronado Beach.

I close by saying: “Abuelito, you will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you for giving us all an example of unconditional love and teaching us what it is to be selfless and kind. I will never forget you.”
