Ronald Camarra Obituary, Death – After a heroic battle with Glioblastoma, Ronald L. Camarra, 68, of Auburn, went away in a quiet manner on Monday, November 28, 2022, at home surrounded by the love of his life and his adoring children. He had been fighting this disease for the past many years. After leaving Popoli, Italy, and being married in New York, Ron’s great grandparents established the Camarra family tree in 1913. Prior to that, they had immigrated from Popoli. After then, his great-grandparents, Luigi and Lucia (DelConte) Camarra, made their home in Worcester, which is also where the majority of Ron’s extended family currently resides.

His two children, Zachary Camarra of Rhode Island and his partner Meggan Ayres, and Megan Camarra and her fiancé Adam Giardino of Worcester, are the only ones to carry on Ron’s legacy after his passing. He is also survived by the woman who has been the sole love of his life for the past 14 years and his sweetheart, Debra A. Gremo of Auburn; her children, Mike and LeeAnn Parkin of Rhode Island, whom he adored as his own, grandsons Camden and Bodhi, who brought him so much joy and lovingly referred to him as, “Papa”; and Thomas Gremo of Arizona. His mother, Ruth Camarra, of Worcester, his sister Linda Camarra of Worcester, and his brother Joseph Camarra of Auburn are among those who are left behind after his passing. Additionally, he says goodbye to his lifelong friends Doug Freund and Tim Gagnon, with whom he spent every Wednesday morning finding solutions to the issues of the world.

The 24th of April, 1954 found Ron being welcomed into the world in Worcester. He was the third and final child to be born to Joseph and Ruth (Prevoski) Camarra. He attended South High School and received his education in Worcester, where he was born and raised. After completing his studies at Worcester Junior College, Ron earned an associate’s degree in Business Administration. After spending his whole career with L & P Paper, LLC, where he worked as an executive for Worcester Quality Food Services, he retired.

His most significant accomplishment was caring for and bringing up his children, and he took immense pride in all that each of them accomplished in their lives. He played golf to a high level of proficiency and introduced his son to the game, with the two of them going on to enjoy countless rounds together. He had been a member of Hillcrest and Holden Hills Country Club in the past, and during that time he took part in a number of the club’s events.

Riding their bikes together over the trails of Central Massachusetts and Rhode Island was one of Ron’s favorite ways to spend quality time with his daughter. He especially enjoyed spending all of his time with Deb doing the things that were important to the two of them, such as gardening, visiting Scarborough Beach, and travelling on their annual vacation to Walt Disney World, which was his most beloved destination. Ron enjoyed spending time with his family in the kitchen and serving as host for all of their holiday gatherings.

Visiting hours will be held on Thursday, December 1st from 4 pm to 7 pm at the MERCADANTE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, located at 370 Plantation Street in Worcester. Friends and family members are welcome to attend. His funeral will be place on Friday, December 2nd, commencing at the funeral home at 9 am, followed by a procession to North American Martyrs Church located at 8 Wyoma Drive in Auburn, where he will have a celebration of life mass at 9:30 am.
