Ernie Camp Obituary

Ernest Carol Camp, beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, son, and friend to many, passed away on March 9, 2024, in Shreveport, LA. He was born on April 5, 1954, in Springhill, LA, to Harry and Victoria Camp.  Funeral services will be held Monday, March 25, 2024 at 2:00 pm at Western Baptist Church, Emerson, AR with Bro. Jeremy Davis officiating.  Interment will be in the Western Cemetery under the direction of Bailey Funeral Home, Springhill, LA.  


Visitation will be held Monday, March 25, 2024 1:00 to 2:00 pm at Western Baptist Church, Emerson, AR.


Ernie was a devoted father to his daughters Jessica Davis, Julie Steward, & Joni Evans. He adored his grandchildren, Brody Davis, CJ Davis, Trinity Davis, Jade Camp, Brinleigh Steward, Bentley Steward, Bayleigh Steward, Blakeleigh "BB" Steward & Sybil Evans, his great-grandson, Jensen Wright-Camp, and his wonderful sons-in-law. His love for them knew no bounds, and he cherished every moment spent with them.


He is survived by his father, Harry Camp; sister Becky Schuldt & husband Art Schuldt; nephews Kevin & Ryan Schuldt; along with countless other cousins, aunts, and uncles who will miss him terribly.


Ernie was passionate about being a heavy equipment operator for most of his life and was renowned as one of the best in his field. He had an insatiable thirst for knowledge and loved history - he could give you a lesson at the drop of a dime. His fascination with aircraft history and things that went fast were unparalleled. But above all else, Ernie found immense joy in being "Papaw" to his babies and "Daddy" to his girls. His love extended even further to include Pip -his beloved puppy dog.


The family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to the wonderful staff at the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center in Shreveport for their kindness towards Ernie during such trying times. The care they provided meant everything to him.  Additionally, thanks are owed to the Ochsner LSU MICU staff for their quality care during such difficult moments.


To those who poured love into Ernie's life over the years, making him smile through it all - your efforts will never be forgotten. Ernie fought hard until the very end - he is our hero!


His absence leaves an irreplaceable void, but we take solace in knowing that Ernest Carol Camp's memory will live on forever within each person whose lives he touched so deeply. May he rest peacefully, knowing how much he was loved by all who knew him.
