HENRY KENNETH CAMACHOHenry Kenneth Camacho, passed away peacefully on February 27, 2018 at Wahiawa Hospital at 81 years old. His wife, Jennifer, and family members were at his side with Pastor Edwin Sproat, who gave the final blessing. He was able to listen to all his favorite Hawaiian songs till his last breath. He is survived by his wife Jennifer, by a son Michael (Teia) Camacho, a daughter Linda Ulibarri, and step-children Bernard (Heidi) Duarte Jr, Jonathan Duarte, Onassis Kim, & Maile Duarte-Rego. Also survived by 10 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren; Seven brothers, Simmonds, Richard, Joseph, and Randy Camacho, Dean Kipi, Glen and Lucky Rodenhurst; Five sisters, Katherine Soule, Mildred Neuman, Ilima Chambers, Nohea Robinson, Frances Camacho; one aunt, Leialoha Kaleikini, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by daughter, Deborah Camacho. He was born March 27, 1936, in Honolulu to Frances Kaleikini and Henry Camacho, the oldest of 15 children. He attended Kaimuki high school and served in the Air Force. He loved fishing and diving. Among his many occupations were appliance delivery, armored car guard, a straddler operator for Matson for 32 years and professional musician for 20 years. He is the only known person at Matson to have miraculously survived two straddler crashes in 1988 and 1996. He married his second wife Jennifer Duarte-Kim of Kauai on February 14, 1996 and adored his little toy poodle Pua Mae Ole who lived for 14 years. In April of 1996, just two months after their marriage, Henry survived a 2nd horrific accident at Matson which left him with a brain injury and various physical disabilities. Jenny was his caregiver thereafter. Through the Power of Prayer and grace of God he recovered. He was so remarkable that at the age of 61 years old (to please his wife), from a quiet and shy person that he was, he learned to sing and play a baritone ukulele to become a professional musician for the next 21 years. He was able to sing Blue Hawaii with an Elvis voice and his favorite song was E Kuu Morning Dew. He and Jenny performed a three hour Hawaiian Show every Friday for 14 years at the Waikiki Elks Club to help raise funds for disabled children. For 21 years, they went to hospitals and care homes for the elderly to bring them joy. With their Camacho and Aikane group they did many private parties and were extremely successful and loved what they did. Life was so Beautiful and fulfilling. He will be remembered by his wife and family as a humble, strong, loving very kind. Husband, father, and grandfather and friend. His generosity was a blessing to all who knew him. He was a man who took care of his family all of his life. He loved God above all. Anyone who met Henry felt that warmth and genuine aloha from his heart. Or saw it in his eyes, and heard it in his voice. He loved to sing and perform. Henry you are so dearly lovedthere are no words that can express our loss. You will be greatly missed by all of us. Our precious memories and love for you remain in our hearts forever until we meet again. God Bless You, Rest in Peace. Services will be at Mililani Mauka Chapel on May 2nd from 9:30am to 11:30am.
