Daniel Camacho, age 86, a United States Air Force Veteran from Wareham, MA, passed away peacefully at home on July 10, 2020 surrounded by his loving family. He was the longtime companion of the late Stephanie King.

Born and raised in New Bedford, the son of the late Manuel and Maria (DaSilva) Camacho, Dan was a graduate of New Bedford High School, class of 1952. He was employed by the Continental Screw Company before moving to Illinois with the company in the Mid-1980’s when the company merged to become Continental-Midland. It is there that he met Stephanie. Upon his retirement they returned to the area, making Wareham his home for the past 19 years. Dan enjoyed fishing, going to the casino and any time he spent with his family.

He is survived by his son, Kenneth Camacho and his wife Dusty; his daughter, Susan Durivage and her wife Mary Fran; as well as Ken and Sue’s sister, Michelle Abreu and her husband Adam. He is also survived by the son of his late companion, David King and his wife Jamie. He was the brother of Irene Camacho, grandfather of Crystal Giammalvo, Zachary Camacho and Cassandra Camacho; great-grandfather of Mystique, Cody, Cameron, Logan and Kylie. He was also fortunate enough to have a very special relationship with Paige and AJ Abreu and was loved by many nieces and nephews who have fond memories of “Uncle Danny”.

In addition to his longtime companion Stephanie, Dan was predeceased by his son David Camacho as well as his granddaughter Shaylene Camacho, brothers Manuel, John and Joseph Camacho; and sisters Margaret Ventura and Edna Souza.

His Graveside Service with Military Honors will be held on Saturday, July 18, 2020 at 11AM at Rural Cemetery (Grape Street Entrance) in New Bedford. Memorial contributions in his honor may be made to the Southcoast Health Cancer Center, 206 Mill Road, Fairhaven, MA 02719.

Dad. I will miss you for always. Growing up, you never missed a single weekend of spending time with us. You ALWAYS made us your priority. Not many dads can say that. When you moved away, you could have used your vacations to travel but instead, you chose to use that time to come home and spend it with us. Upon retirement, you moved back within a month, never wanting to be far from your family. You always knew how to make the best of a situation, always there with a joke, a smile, a hug. You set an example that few can follow. You taught me what was important in life. Thank you, Pop. I love you.
