I am so shocked and saddened to read of Cameron’s death. My sisters and I have so many fond memories of Cousin Cameron on our regular trips to Vancouver growing up. I loved his deep laugh, crooked smile and endless sense of fun. He loved his girls and his family. I will never forget the day he married Sharon in West Toronto. Even though a tornado ripped through the neighbourhood, downing trees and blocking roads, nothing was going to keep Cameron from what became a beautiful wedding day. My condolences to his family. He was a very special soul.

It has been about 38 years since I had the fortune on being in your presence but my memory persists in that you were always a kind, gentle and teaching soul. I suspect this same demeanor carried on through your whole life. Your existence made my world a better one. As I reflect on the past, I remember only good memories with you Cameron….. I think because there were no bad times with you. I am deeply sorry that we did not stay connected over the years. I hope to see you on the other side my friend! Maybe not just yet though……. ha!
To your family that I have never met but only heard about, my heart goes out to you all. Knowing Cameron is in a safe place only eases the pain.
I only recently heard the news but I will take time and honour Cameron in the way I know how in the near future.
Peace to you Cameron.

Cam was like a big brother to me. He supported and coached me in baseball and badminton and was a big part of my early teenage years. My early badminton success was in many ways a result of Cam’s dedication to our weekly best of 7 battles at the racquets club – he made trophy that we played for every week. Such a kind hearted soul. I will miss Cam – such a great individual and mentor.
