June 29, 1941 – Oct 3, 2011
Surrounded by his loving family, Cam slipped into eternal rest following a valiant battle with cancer. Cam is survived by his wife Patricia, daughters Kathleen (Brad), Lori (Cliff), Colleen (Marty), Karen(Steven) & Rob; six Island kids – Cleo (Guy), Glenn (Anya), Monte (Debbie), Hope (Dave), Shawn(Sandra), Patrick; 21 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren and sister Jay (Lance). He was predeceased by his mother, Margaret, father, Harold; brothers Barry, Teddy and son, Ross. Born in Cornwall, Ontario, Cam moved British Columbia in 1968 where he resided in the Lower Mainland & Fraser Valley areas. He relocated to Victoria in the mid ‘70’s where he remained until his death. Cam served several years in the Canadian Armed Forces, a member of the Black Watch where he proudly served the Queen Mother at a formal dinner in Montreal in 1962. When he retired from his military career, Cam spent the remainder of his working life in Food Services for the Dept of National Defense in Victoria. He was a long time member and stellar player at the Victoria Horseshoe Club. He also held memberships with the Black Watch Association and the Royal Canadian Legion #91. A celebration of Cam’s life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion on Station Road in Langford on October 22, from 2-4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Victoria Hospice Society for their compassionate and loving palliative care. Rest in eternal peace- husband, father, grandfather and friend.
