        Harry Kamion, a member of United Orthodox Synagogues, died on Saturday, May 28, 1983, at the age of 67.
        According to the Houston Post, the odds caught up with Kamion, a Houston businessman, when an armed robber shot him to death. During World War II, he had cheated death more than once when he fought Nazis as a leader in the Polish underground.
        The Post quoted Kamion's shaken widow, Evelyn, as saying: "The war couldn't do it, the Nazis couldn't do it. But here is Houston - far, far away from that terrible past - a simple hoodlum took his life." The widow, like her husband, grew up amid bloodshed in Warsaw.
        Kamion came to Houston about 22 years ago from New York to build a business, White House Plumbing Company. But he continued to be plagued by the violence he hoped to leave behind.
        His son, Alan, told the Post that he was robbed many times at his business in the 2700 block of Jensen. Three times, Kamion had wrestled pistols from gunmen demanding money and sent them running out of the store.
        During World Was II, Kamion had joined the fight against the Nazis after soldiers burst into his home near Warsaw and shot his mother. Escaping from a death train, he became a leader in the Polish underground - although he never revealed his Jewish upbringing, the Post said.
        Kamion was tortured after Polish underground members were captured by German Gestapo officers But, according to Kamion's son Kamion again escaped - this time from the Gestapo's clutches - as he was taken to a concentration camp to be killed.
        Having repeatedly escaped death during World War II, Kamion was gunned down in Houston on May 28, in his store. He was unarmed.
        Survivors are his wife, Mrs. Evelyn Kamion; children, Lenore and Phillip Caplan, Alan and Peggy Kamion, Mona Kamion, and grandsons, Michael Nathan Kamion, Gary Michael Caplan and Jared Brandon Caplan.
        Graveside services were held at 11 a.m., Monday, May 30, 1983, at Adath Israel Cemetery. Rabbi Joseph Radinsky and Cantor Irving Dean officiated.
