Fred was born on Jan. 6, 1928 in Solsona, Philippines to his mother, Maria Guillermo Camero and his father, Santiago Camero. He is the youngest male and second youngest of six children. Fred finished school in 8th grade to take care of his family who had little means. He spent most of his time as a child fishing to feed his mother and five siblings, before immigrating to Hawai’i to make a better living for himself and his family in the Philippines. After moving to Lanai City to pick pineapple on the Dole plantation fields, he met the love of his life Rosita Agonoy Magaoay and married on April 5, 1953.
Fred’s children remember him as a kind, gentle, patient, and driven father who encouraged them to live a more meaningful life through education, having them work on the plantation at an early age to show them the challenges of physical labor that he experienced. Fred was accomplished at musical entertaining, and would often perform and sing at parties or gatherings. He was a dedicated individual who, above all talents and accomplishments, was most proud of his family, which includes his beautiful wife, six children, and fourteen grandchildren. Fred was an active and dedicated member of the Lanai Filipino Community, and in 2003 Fred and Rosita were recognized as “Parents of the Year” by the State Philippine Cultural Foundation.
