Mr. Eugene A. Gene Camac, age 67, of Bear, DE, died on Friday, January 7, 2011, at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia, surrounded by his wife and children.
A native Delawarean, Mr. Camac was born in Wilmington on January 23, 1943, son of the late Daniel Robert Camac and Mildred Rambo Camac. He was a 1961 graduate of Newark High School and would go on to serve his country proudly in the US Army. A talented craftsman, he was an iron worker by profession and a 46-year member of Union Local 451.
Mr. Camac had many interests and hobbies throughout his life, including golf, travel, dancing, and spending time at his vacation home in Fenwick Island. In his youth, he was a well-known amateur boxer at Delaware Park. In later years, he owned several champion Thoroughbred race horses.
