Ysaac, 97 - (José Victor Isaac Camarillo) Mass of Christian Burial will be 2:00 pm preceded by visitation 1:00-2:00 pm on Thursday, April 22, 2021 at St. Mary’s-St. Anthony’s 615 N 7th St, KCKS 66101. Reception immediately following mass in church basement.                   Masks are required and social distancing will be observed.                                                                               Victor was called home by the Lord on Sunday, April 18, 2021.  He was born March 9, 1924 at “La Hacienda El Torreon”, Guanajuato, Mexico. At the young age of eight he worked gathering firewood from the surrounding hillside so that his father could sell it to support his family. As he grew older he did necessary work required to maintain the hacienda. In 1941 at the age of 17 he departed from his small part of the world and walked 820 kilometers/ 510 miles/ approximately 116 hours, north to the United States. He recalled that he and his travel companions decided to cross the Rio Bravo after sundown. But to their surprise two border patrol agents were waiting for them by the river on the U.S. side. By the grace of God the officers allowed them to continue on their way to McAllen TX. He was able to work for three months before his second encounter with immigration officers resulted in being detained and deported back to Mexico.  Once again Victor left his small community and moved to Mexico City where he worked as a shoe maker specializing in hand made huaraches. He married Maria de la Rosa Moreno Hernández (Born in Armourdale Kansas) in Coyotepec, Mexico in June 1952.  Victor emigrated to the United States in 1964 and worked for K.C. Terminal RailRoad as a Track Man, retiring after 24 year of service. Becoming a U.S. Citizen was one of the accomplishments that brought him great pride; the other was telling people that he and his wife adopted his daughter at the age of 7 months and that she was a graduate from the University of Kansas, he placed a high value on education, since he was not able to attend the local school house beyond the 3rd grade.       He enjoyed fishing, gardening and giving away his harvest to his neighbors, attending Saturday Mass at St. John the Evangelist. He was often seen walking and years later riding his motorized scooter around his neighborhood by Clopper Field or along Strong Avenue in Argentine Kansas. He was preceded in death by his parents Manuela Camarillo Cano and Clemente Isaac Hernandez, sister Natalia Isaac Camarillo, brother Francisco Isaac Camarillo, his childhood sweetheart María de la Rosa Moreno Hernández, and their son Josué Gil Ysaac Moreno. He is survived by his daughter María Cecilia Ysaac (Margarito Belmares), two grandchildren Margarita Giselle Belmares Ysaac (Kansas State University Class of 2022) and Alberto Josué Belmares-Ysaac (Fisk University HBCU Class of 2024). Evening visitation will be 6-8 pm Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at Larkin & Garcia Funeral Care 1844 Minnesota Avenue KCKS 66102, where the rosary will be prayed at 7:00 pm.  Fond memories and condolences may be shared at Larkin & Garcia Funeral Care
