Camacho, and also his beloved furry children, Petey, Peaches, Digger and granddog Patrick.

Tony is a First Field force Vietnam Veteran. He served 3 years from 1968 to 1971 in the United States Army (BTRY C 5th BN 22nd ARTY RVN USARPAC Vietnam). Tony also went on four missions to Korea (BTRY C 1st Tab 25th ARTY USARPAC Korea).

Tony was wounded while fighting for his country but was unable to receive his purple heart.

Tony was born in Bronx, NY. He was raised by his grandmother, Juana Rivera, where he lived with all his cousins. He loved to be with family and friends playing cards, hunting and fishing. Hunting was his passion which he enjoyed with his best friends Butchy, Bobby and Johnny, may they all RIP.

Tony was a truck driver for 35 years (#7114). Tony and his beautiful wife of 49 years, Bridget, were highschool sweethearts. They got married once he left the service. They went on to have two children and lived on Long Island “Medford” NYC for 13 years. They moved to Florida where they shared a beautiful home and life together for 34 years, until November 26th when God called his beautiful strong soldier home.

Tony will be deeply missed and his memory will continue on burning in our hearts.

Nephew
Of all the many blessings
However great or small
To have had you for a nephew
Was the greatest one of all.

The family chain is broken now
And nothing seems the same
But as god takes us one by one
The chain will link again.

Rest In Peace my nephew in god’s bosom
Till we meet again. Love titi Elizabeth

I lost not just a Friend, but I'm saying goodbye to a Brother. We shared a Kindred Spirit and Heart. This day my eyes may shed tears, but comforted knowing that my Brother has once again paved the way for me. Soldier Strong in the Army of the Lord.

To my cousin and fellow Comrade;

Though we meet late in life, my love and respect for you is as old as the wind. God watched over you during your service to our country, now God is watching over you for eternity.
