Ignacio H. Campos passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 27, 2020 after a long fight with Parkinson’s disease. He was known as “Nacho,” “Nachito” and “Nick” by his family and friends. He was a wonderful loving father with a great heart and a wonderful sense of humor.
He is survived by his immediate family; Alicia Campos his wife of 51 years, his two sons Reggie and Danny, daughter-in-law Christie, and his grandchildren Brandon and Sophia.

Nacho was born in San Antonio, Texas on April 16, 1945. In 1947 his family moved to Phoenix, Arizona. He attended Adams Elementary, Phoenix Union, Phoenix College and graduated from Lamson Business College.

Nacho was drafted into the Army in the middle 60’s. He served his country honorably in the Vietnam War. When he returned from his tour of duty, he became a drill Sergeant for incoming troops and he met his future bride Alicia while stationed at Fort Lewis in Tacoma, Washington. They were married in Washington State and once he was honorably discharged, he moved back to Arizona with his new son Reggie.

Several years after Ignacio moved back to Arizona his son Danny was born. He started working for the Arizona State Department of Education in the early 70’s.

He was a good athlete and an accomplished long distant runner in high school, college, and during his time in the U.S. Army. After his kids were born, golf became the game that he enjoyed with his children. Much of his time was spent with his wife and kids chasing the ball around the course creating many wonderful memories and enduring friendships.

He is the son of Telesfora and Santiago Campos and he had 14 brothers and sisters.

May the Lord Bless Ignacio’s soul!!!!!

This news was heartbreaking. I don’t have alot of memories with my family but this Tio I can remember as far back as a toddler.

Thank you Tio for always listening, never judging my distance and always encouraging me to never give up on my path.

I will always remember our talks and your unconditional love.

Tio Nacho, always greeted with “Hi mijita”. I must of been 8 or 9 years old. While my mom, your tia mary visited grandma. I was just hanging around out back. My tio was leaving grammas and always in a hurry heading to work. He stopped and said hello and quickly gave me my first $20 bill. Dios mio, felt so rich. My mom and I enjoyed pizza and drinks. Mi Tia Alicia, te amo! Dan and Reg thank you and your families for all the hard work organizing everything. Your all a true reflection of his love.
