Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Mr. Stephen A. Camp passed away early Saturday morning.

I didn't yet see a post about it here, and I believe he did some work here.

I don't recall seeing him posting or on the member list under his own name. I see his site was last updated on the 6th of June.

Always sorry to see when a dedicated shooter has left the range.

Friday, Stephen Camp suffered a brain aneurism.

With no hope for recovery, he was taken off life support and passed from this life on the night of Friday, May 27th, to Saturday, May 28th.

The funeral will be held at DeBerry Funeral Home in Denton, Texas. Cremation will immediately follow.

Any contributions should be sent to Denton Police Officers Association, per Mr. Camp's request.

I have posted a memorial forum on the board we co-founded together, here: , should you wish to visit.

He was a fine friend and will be missed.

Thank you,

Josh Smith

Thanks to Sheriff Benny for giving this to me:

Stephen Allen Camp

Stephen Allen Camp, 59, of Krum passed away on Friday, May 27, 2011.Steve was born on June 18, 1951, in Fort Worth, TX to Cecil and Taloma Camp. He married Sandy Bailey on August 26, 1999.As a young man Steve became a believer in Jesus Christ at Birdville Baptist Church in Haltom City, Texas.

Steve retired in 1998 from the Denton Police Department after 25 years of loyal and very dedicated service. He left a special legacy at the PD, and many of the people there remember him with love and respect. He left a piece of himself at the Police Department that will remain forever in the hearts of all who knew him. He definitely touched their lives in a very special way.

He had a passion for guns that was legendary. Target practice was a part of his daily life, and he was known as the premier expert on the Browning Hi Power. Many people sought his advice and he was always willing to give of himself to explain anything asked of him, answering emails from perfect strangers on a daily basis. Steve was an accomplished writer who could always express himself very eloquently on paper. After he retired, he started writing manuals about his beloved firearms. He was a self-published author who wrote four gun-related books that were very well received in the gun community. He even wrote one novel that impresses everyone who reads it. He was a very talented man.

Steve lived his life by a strict moral code and expected others to do the same. He could be rigid and uncompromising at times, but he was the most giving, loving, decent man who ever lived. You always knew where you stood with Steve because he would tell you. Everyone who knew him loved him and wanted to be his friend, because Steve was true-blue and always there for those he cared about.

He is survived by his wife, Sandy Camp; mother, Taloma Camp; mother-in-law, Florence Boehnemann; sister, Jan Clifton and husband Tommy; sister-in-law Kathie Boehnemann; niece, Kim Bolton and husband J J; nephew, Clint Jarrett and wife Jinelle; nephew, Stephen Boehnemann and wife Eve; niece, Lauren Hadley and husband Josh; and many other aunts, uncles, cousins and loyal friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Cecil Camp; father-in-law, Delphine Boehnemann; and brother-in-law, Larry Boehnemann.

Visitation will be in Denton at DeBerry Funeral Directors, 2025 W University, on Tuesday, May 31, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

Services will be held at 10:30 am on Wednesday, June 1, at the First United Methodist Church of Denton located at 201 S Locust.

Memorials: Denton Police Officers Association, PO Box 5103, Denton, TX, 76205.
I did find a link, which I had probably better include:

(The paper has a picture of Mr. Camp, but if you have your own you'd like to post, feel free. I have some of his younger days as an officer someplace on the computer, and will hunt them up a bit later. As for now, I have many, many boards I have to visit with this.)

Thanks folks, for just being here.
