Our beloved Camron Ward Haro has passed. While his death was unexpected, Camron suffered from drug addiction, and for years we feared his addiction would claim his life. Camron was born on August 5th, 1997 in Midland, TX before moving to Bedford, TX with his mother at the age of 4 where he grew up.

Camron was a natural athlete, growing up he played in almost every sport offered in the community. He had a baseball pitch that drew coaches from around the league that plead for him to recognize his talents and one day go for the big leagues. Although he loved playing baseball & soccer through his academic career Camron’s real love was in football. He loved playing it & watching it. He had a mad skill with the video games and people across the country would go on line just to virtually watch him play. He loved being outdoors snowboarding, wake boarding, fishing. He always had a special collection of coins, knifes and a stones and rocks. He loved traveling and had the blessing of going to some of the most beautiful places, and in those experiences is where he collected some of his most fond memories. He was incredibly smart and had a love for Science. He could spend hours talking about theory – it was actually one of the homework subjects we didn’t have to beg for him to complete!

Things changed for Camron when he turned 17 as it does for most teenagers. It was around this time that Camron tried Xanax & OxyContin for the first time, and so began a relationship that would dominate the rest of his life. It is impossible to capture a person in an obituary, especially someone whose adult life was largely defined by drug addiction. To some, Camron became just a “druggy” – when they saw his addiction, they stopped seeing HIM. And what a loss for them. Because Camron was hilarious, goofy, warm, sensitive, compassionate, caring, fearless and resilient. He could talk with anyone and when you were in his company you were loved. He was adored as a son, father, brother, cousin, grandson, nephew.

Camron loved his family but more than anyone else he loved his daughter, Lily. Even during the times of incredible darkness Lily was the light that he clung to.

We believed and held hope, as we always did that Camron would overcome his disease and make a life for himself that we knew he deserved. We believed and carried this hope until the moment he took his last breath. Though we would have paid any ransom to have him back, any price in the world, this disease would not let him go until he was gone. We take comfort in knowing that Camron is surrounded by light, free from the struggle that haunted him. May he now rest with his Father in eternal peace.

Cherishing his memory are his mother, Mandy and husband Shaun; father Josh and wife Erica; daughter Lily; siblings, Emma, Joshua, Gavin and Ava; also numerous extended family.

In lieu of flowers, we are accepting donations for continued support in the name of his daughter Lily Grace Haro.

My son Waylon Lovelace and Camron were really good friends. I remember Camron coming to Waylon’s funeral when he passed away on7/3/17. Camron came up and gave me the biggest hug ever and told me how sorry he was. This kid had a heart of gold. He had struggles like any teenager, but it did not stop him from being the person he always was. I remember when him and my two kids use to ride around on their bikes together in the neighborhood. We actually lived right down the street from him, and we saw Camron every day without fail. He was such a happy person, always smiling and always laughing. I know he is a beautiful angel now, and that him and my son have been reunited up in heaven and are probably raising all kinds of heck together. May he Rest In Peace and watch over his beautiful family down here. He will surely be missed. Many prayers going up for all of you.

Sincerely,
Angie Worley

Camron in his Great Grandmother's, Virginia Edgar, arms. She loved this little new addition and was thrilled at his arrival. She believed that every family addition was to be celebrated as they are true gift from heaven. It was not much longer after this photo that she passed away from pulmonary fibrosis.

His Great Grandmother loved to give hugs and her hugs would last a long time. Something so amazing happened on our last family trip on July 4th, 2019 in New Braunfels, TX. Lily was with us and when she first saw me she gave me the longest hug just like my grandmother used to give! I had not felt that kind of hug since Grandma. Obviously, I was not the only one noticing this as the family around us noticed this too. I told Camron that your daughter has a wonderful gift that I hope never goes away. She gives hugs just like your Great Grandmother Virginia. He agreed that he hoped Lily would continue with giving good hugs and that this would never go away.

I know that with Camron's arrival to heaven his Great Grandmother probably said "Welcome child and gave him a very long long strong hug." Love in this world and in the next.

Camron meeting Austin, his cousin, for the first time. This is just before Camron was about to find out that he was going to be a Dad. Camron was so good with kids. He would play and create games with them which to me was a gift.

The last time we all hung out with Camron. We took a photo of all of Omi's grandkids.

The moment I learned of Camron's arrival into this world was a life changer for me. I woke my sister up by jumping on her bed while doing a happy dance that we have our new family member in the world. The first time I was allowed to watch Camron, during my Midland visit, I remember how cool it was that Camron slept in with me until 11 am that day. I could not believe it.
Then later on in his life, around 5 years old, I picked him up to take him to Oklahoma so that he could attend his Aunt Amanda's college graduation. He was so precious and acted like such a big boy. He was excited to see the family as we were happy to have him with us. Such a big trip for this Aunt and this little man.
When Camron was round 8 or 9 he was walking home after school by himself. I was worried about little man walking home by himself so I gave him a really nice walkie talkie so we could talk. I was living in Mexico City at the time and this walkie talkie worked without international charges. So for many days after school he and I would talk about our day. He was always interested to learn about what I was experiencing in Mexico so I would describe everything I could like the colors, the food, the people, the scenarios I ran into. He just could have been the only boy in his school with a walkie talkie with the international connection.
Nearly every Christmas and Thanksgiving I would see Camron.
During these times he would ask a lot of questions about life and about my belief in Christ. When he started giving his parents a hard time I would let him know that I care for him and praying for him. Later he would live with his Omi and Papa while working at Abuelo's and Saltgrass. That year at Christmas I gave him a movie to watch called "The Case for Christ". All of my nieces and nephews made a palette on the floor with Camron and watched his movie with him.
There are so many many more memories.

Camron is and always will be loved!

I never met Camron but I have know of him, about him, and all the love for him since before he was born. I heard about his anticipated arrival into this world from his aunt Amanda (Josh's sister) and aunt Stephanie (Mandy's sister). He was the first of the next generation for both families & all were excited. All throughout his life, Steph and Amanda would tell me stories about him and how deeply he was loved by the Smith's and the Haro's. Both of his grandmothers adored him and he made them both incredibly proud and brought them both joy. I will always remember the light that Camron was to his family. All of you have my love and prayers.

I used to drop John and Camron off at their houses after school we shared a lot of good laughs together any time I spent with Camron wasn't time spent being sad so I always appreciated him for the laughs that he gave me and the advice and wisdom he would share.

Camron was a special person loved by many. I couldn't stop hugging him from the time he was a baby to adulthood. He would laugh at how much I hugged him and give me that side-eye smile. He told funny jokes, he laughed often, and he asked lots of questions about life. I prayed heavily over him and spoke about the love God has for him and how God can fill the holes in his heart.
Camron's birth taught me love on a dimension I didn't know that great August 5th morning. Then, motherhood taught me another dimension.
As an Aunt, I hurt deeply but my brother and Mandy, I cannot imagine that pain. Thank you, so much, Josh and Mandy, for giving our family the gift to know such a sweet boy for 22 years. He was more than how he left this world and to me, he will always be my sweet Camron. May his passing bring beauty from ashes.
