Alfonza “Fonz” Cameron, Jr., 59, of Mashpee, died suddenly in his home on June 9, 2020. He was the son of Alfonza Cameron, Sr. and the late Martha Jo Woodyard.
Alfonza was born August 8, 1960 in Hartford, CT. He was brought to North Carolina and was educated in Wake County. He graduated from Broughton High School in Raleigh, NC in 1979. From a young age, Alfonza always sought to take care of others. After working at Rex Hospital for a long period of time, he moved to Massachusetts in 1991 with his daughter and her mother.
Alfonza is remembered as an extremely hardworking and loyal man. This is most evident with his career, where he spent nearly 30 years working as a technician for the marine technology company, first at ORE in Falmouth, and through the company’s transition to Edgetech, in Wareham. Recently, he was recognized for always going above and beyond at work when he was given the Hero Award at his company.
Fonz enjoyed photography and loved creating and enjoying home videos. He loved watching college basketball, and was always rooting for his favorite team, “Go North Carolina”! He loved biking, all types of music, and his latest love of a new show.
