Ferdinand W. Camp Jr. “Ferd”, 89, left this earth peacefully at his home on Monday, April 12, 2021 after a long courageous battle with Parkinson’s. A native from Kenmore, Ferd moved to Barberton and was a successful and well respected family businessman for over 50 years. After serving in the Korean War as a Sergeant, he returned home where he worked with his father at Bosch & Camp Service Station as an auto repair mechanic. Ferd would incorporate and later he created yet another family business, Camp’s Auto Salvage with his sons, Chris and Mike. Ferd was a proud member of National Lodge #568 F&AM for 67 years. He enjoyed fishing, everything outdoors, and working, but nothing compared to his love for his family. Preceded in death by his parents, Ferd and Nellie (nee Gaugler) Camp and first wife, Dora Camp.  Ferd is survived by his wife, Anna Camp; sons, Chris Camp (Julie Martinez) and Mike (Sue) Camp; grandchildren, Danny Camp (fiancée, Katie Morrison) and Corri Camp; along with many, many friends, who were near and dear to him and were loved as family. Following Ferd’s wishes a private graveside service will be held for his family at Lakewood Cemetery. If so desired donations may be made to the Akron V.A. Clinic at www.cleveland.va.gov.

Ferd and I were friends from the time he was born. We were cousins by birth, and I have fond memories of our childhoods and good times at Fox Lake.

Love and prayers to all who miss him.

I have the most fond memories of Ferd - as a caring, hard-worker, with a dry sense of humor - - - who loved family and friends. My prayers and condolences with Chris, Mike and family...

To the Camp Family,
I was truly sorry to hear that Ferdi passed.  I met him in the late 60's when I was a student at Akron U.  He and his faithful dog kept my 55 Chevy (sometimes I only paid for parts) running and I have never forgotten his kindness.  He was a listener more than a talker but still easy to talk to.  He could listen to your car and tell you what was wrong with it.  Throughout the years when I needed a car part I always checked Camp's and told everyone else to do the same.   I never went to Camp" without asking how Ferdi was doing.  His son's seem to be following in his foot-steps.  May he rest in peace.
