Alfred Leonard Camp, 90, was born on June 2, 1922, and went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Oct. 9, 2012.

Alfred lived his childhood in the small town of Cherokee, OK. After serving in World War II Alfred met the love of his life, Jennie Lou Ford. They were married on April 18, 1945. Soon after their marriage they moved to California and found work in a factory that manufactured plumbing supplies. He continued to work in the plumbing industry and eventually worked his way up to the position of president of Wilkins Regulator Division of Zurn Industries. During this time Alfred received over 100 patents for products that he designed.

Upon retiring in 1987, Alfred and his family moved to Stockton where they established the Flying C Cattle Ranch.

Alfred is survived by his wife, Jennie Lou, of the home; son, Edward, and daughter-in-law, Sandra – Stockton; granddaughter, Jennifer Lynch, and husband, David – Olathe, KS; grandson, Christopher Camp – Stockton; and great grandson, Charles Lynch – Olathe, KS.

Even with all of Alfred’s success in business and industry, his greatest joy came while spending time with his family. He was a devoted and loving husband and a truly wonderful father and grandfather. He was a man of great faith and knew that he would spend eternity in heaven. His family knows that some day they will all be there together.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Wounded Warriors Project.
