Jeffrey Alan Cammack
Jeffrey Alan Cammack, was born 4-25-57 in the city of Bangor to Ralph E. Cammack and Laurie T. (Paul) Cammack. At age 62, Jeff went home to our loving, heavenly father on 12-28-19. Jeff was a BHS 1975 graduate. He joined the swim team and the football team. He, with his childhood friend, E.K. and the Bangor high school football team left many wonderful memories. Jeff joined the forestry program at the University of Maine in Orono after graduating high school. In the summer of 1977, he met Carmen at the Bounty in Bangor. In the month of April 1978, they were married. In their apartment on Maple St. in Bangor, their first daughter, Jessica Joy, was brought home. In their first home on Grove St. Court, April Lynn, their second daughter was brought home. In 1993, they moved to their dream home on Phillips Lake in Lucerne-In- Maine, which Jeff and many beloved friends, family, and fire fighters helped them to build. Family is everything to Jeff. The Ralph Cammack family was amazing. I first met them when they lived on Frazier St. on a Friday night. There was a pepperoni and mushroom pizza on the coffee table with a green salt shaker in the box .The salt shaker now sits on our breakfast nook table. If you messed with one of them on Frazier St., you messed with them all. They were all aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents that lived on that street. Family. That is why family has been so important to Jeff.
Joining the fire department was natural for Jeff. Another family.
Jeff leaves behind his wife of 42 years, Carmen, his daughter Jessica and husband Matthew DeGrasse, daughter April Cammack and three beloved grandchildren, Alexis, Jack, and Mya; brother Joey, his sister Julie, his “boy” Ralph and many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.
