In Loving Memory

Camilo Michael Apostol, age 64, of Bakersfield, California was called to Heaven on February 22, 2019, his devoted wife at his side.

He was a loving husband, doting father and adoring grandfather.

He is survived by his wife and confidant of 32 years, Nancy Apostol, his children, Michelle, Christina, Memory, Camilo, Andrew and Joseph. The legacy of his spirit will live on through his grandchildren, Alexis, Mariah, Jake, Nate and Natalia.

He will be fondly remembered for his lifelong passion of music. Camilo had an inherent gift of songwriting, singing, playing the piano, organ and drums. He was blessed with great talents and rhythm, earning the stage name DJ Milo de Milo. He shared an endless supply of laughter and good times.

His lionheart, unbelievable sense of humor and larger-than-life personality will be deeply and sorely missed.

A warm thank you to Hoffmann Hospice and his Nurse Ana Reyna, for their care in making our Dad’s last days comfortable and peaceful.

My grandpa milo,

I don’t have as many memories with you as I wish I did, but the ones I do have I will remember and cherish forever. You were unapologetically yourself in every way and I will miss the constant laughs and lightheartedness I always felt when I was around you. Visiting you was always filled with good times, good music, and good company. Your memory will live on through me, my cousins, my aunts and my uncles. We will miss you everyday, but we will always think of you with love and full hearts.

Rest easy grandpa, I love you.

Milo,
My dear high school buddy πŸ‘¬. Long ago we lived and saw each other daily - you in your very "cool" 🚘 Corvette and me in my much less cool πŸš™ VW Bug. You were good in bio and chem. Me, in writing and debate. Then, we lived just across the street from each other - our house on the corner of Clinton and 15th Ave. We played a lot of great music. Me only the drums πŸ₯, and you - well ..... every 🎼πŸ₯πŸŽ·πŸŽΈπŸŽ»πŸŽΌ instrumentπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ», and talked about our futures, our lives, our friends, our hopes. I lost contact with you over the years but hoped you had a bountiful life and a joy in family. I'm happy to see that you have had that in your life. As in my heart, may your life and kindnesses shown first to your classmates - then later to your whole sweet family and friends - each day become remembered blessings. These blessings continue until, through Belief in our Messiah's sacrifice for each of us, we are promised to see each other again - forever.
May God tenderly touch your family and all your friends lives afresh each morning with His Love.
Your old friend,
John Armington

Grandpa, growing up I remember going to see you and you would always make me eat my food first, get what I wanted, and you were the best grandpa I could ever ask for. You gave me a blessing that I never had before and that was to dance, sing, and run as fast as I could. You made me believe that I could be anybody that I wanted to be. The truth is, everyday I would think about you and when I saw you in pain, it made it hard to see you this way. As much as you were in pain you still danced your heart out. I love you grandpa, I miss you, and I will always have your blessing with me. I know your always with me.
Love,
Natalia for grandpa

Thank you dad for being my strength growing up. You were bold with your words, unfiltered, but spoke the truth. Many times too much for those to take, I respected that. Growing up, you provided one of the most important gifts a man can give to his son, LOVE. I knew that no matter where I was or what I was going through your Love and direction overpowered everything in the end. You taught me that life was rough and we all went through difficult times. You explained to me that when you are at the bottom, with nobody around you, down and out, I was your boy and we did one thing; keep your back straight, chin up, chest out, and you keep going. That single handedly has aided my decision making during some rough moments in life. I love you for that. Thank you for showing me how to empower your children, give them freedom to learn, support their decisions, encourage the best from them, but most importantly how to LOVE.
I know you arent suffering anymore. We are passing through this life and I cant wait to be there with you and our family. I know you are with us. I love you and miss you, but i know you are happy from above. You are now with our Lord Jesus Christ. I love you Dad. See you soon!

Dear Dad,
Everywhere I look this week I see signs of you letting me know you are okay. In my heart, I know you are at peace. When I first heard the news of what was to come, all I wished for was for you to know you were loved and you were not alone. In these last months, it was a gift and an honor to walk this journey with you. I take comfort in knowing what a beautiful and amazing homecoming it must have been. I imagine that was some party up there in Heaven!
February 22nd I lost my Dad but I gained an Angel who I know will watch over me the rest of my life. I will miss you, that smile, that twinkle in your eye.
Until we meet again,...
Your Darling,
Michelle

Memory Apostol

February 27, 2019

You loved me for the last 39 years, but I loved you my whole life.

In my eyes, there is no comparison to you, no word that can describe how much you mean to me, and nothing that could ever lessen my love for you.

You were perfectly imperfect - sweet, charming, thoughtful, witty, bright, silly, talented, gifted, brave and fearless. I am proud to be your daughter. You were MY joy, Dad. I will love you for all eternity.

Your darling,
Memory Lynn
