Lyle “Nick” Camero, grew up in The Holy Name neighborhood with his parents Sam and Edna Camero and sister Carol. He was happily married for fifty-five years to his wife, Mary Jane, his best catch of all. They had two children Traci and Mark and seven beautiful grandchildren who he adored. He attended Kindergarten through High school at Holy Name, attended UNO for two years, then six months active duty in the Coast Guard with three of his best friends. Upon returning home he joined the Union and became an electrician for twenty years. After that he started his own business called “City Electric” doing commercial and residential contracting. It was hard work, seven days a week in the office but he thrived on hard work. After his retirement at the age of 70 he enjoyed many trips to his fishing cabin on Lake Oahe in South Dakota and his Condo on the golf course in Phoenix.
He was active in his parish St. Robert’s Men’s club, Knights of Columbus, and The Omaha Sports Club. He played Basketball and Coed soccer at St Robert’s, coached his son Mark’s little league baseball team, and played fast pitch baseball into his forty’s playing shortstop and second base. His basketball team of 1954-55 was inducted into the Nebraska high school hall of fame. He was also recognized for his 1956 baseball team. His family always went to support him at his athletic events. Not on the golf course though. He was very generous and loyal to his many friends and would do anything to help others at the drop of a hat. He will be deeply missed by all.
