Adolfo Camarillo’s Legacy
In his 94 years of life, Adolfo Camarillo carved out a powerful personal legacy that can still be observed by residents of Ventura County today. He was a landowner and innovative businessman who successfully operated a major agricultural enterprise for nearly 80 years. A seemingly tireless servant of his community, Adolfo joined and led a variety of agricultural, financial, educational, spiritual, and social organizations. He was also a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, as well as a friend known for his warm hospitality and generosity. As a sign of respect, he was addressed as “Don Adolfo,” and has come to be known in local history as the Last Spanish Don of Ventura County.
