Shorty, 78, Ottawa, died at 12:20 p.m., at Lima Memorial Hospital.

He was the son of Benito and Otilla (Ortega) Camareno. On Dec 1, 1953, he married Maria Florastella Enriquez, who preceded him in death.

Surviving are four sons: Daniel, Juan and Chris, all Ottawa, and David (Cynthia), Houston, TX; two daughters: Melba (Antonio) Navarro, Leipsic, and Cindy Camareno, Ottawa; two brothers: Joe (Josefina) Reyes, TX, and Ben (Sandy) Reyes, Defiance; a sister, Rosa (Joe) Pena, IL; two daughters-in-law: Corina Camareno, Leipsic, and Claudia Camareno, Houston, TX; and twenty-nine grandchildren and thirty-one great-grandchildren.

Deceased are two sons: Benito and Freddy; a granddaughter, Angie L. Martin; stepfather, Simon Reyes; two brothers: Daniel and Alberto Camareno; and two sisters: Felipa Rodriguez and Constancia Camareno.

He worked at Buckeye Sugar Mill, Ottawa, worked 15 years part time at Verhoff Alfalfa Mills, and 15 years at E.J. Meyers and Sons. After he retired he decided to go to work at the Village of Ottawa as a park custodian, his pride was painting the lines on the baseball field and mowing the lawn. He enjoyed working on vehicles, gardening, fishing, and having barbecues where he would grill his famous chicken. He liked riding his lawnmower and just mowing neighbors lawns. Shorty loved making breakfast for his grandchildren after they spent the night. His quote was "Family is everything, if you don't have family you have nothing in life. If you have family, then your a wealthy person." So Shorty was a very wealthy man because he left behind a very rich legacy.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Ottawa, with Rev. Matt Jozefiak officiating.
