The time has come to say goodbye to a wonderful man and amazing husband, father and friend who passed away last evening.
Those who were lucky enough to know Cameron, felt the unconditional love that he gave to his family, friends and extended family who he treated as though they were his own. We are forever grateful for the kindness and integrity, he instilled in us through the example of his life.
Cameron was born in Mar, Ontario, the second oldest of six children born to Oliver and Evelyn White. Cameron spent his childhood on the family farm surrounded by a large, close knit family.
After high school, Cameron moved to the ‘big city’ starting his professional career at Bell Canada, which soon brought him to St. Catharines where he met the love of his life Barbara Brooks. Dubbed the “new fella”, Cameron found himself part of the social and fun-loving Brooks family. A big adjustment from his life on the farm but one that he embraced whether he liked it or not. Cameron and Barbara were married, June 23, 1962 and never looked back. Their adventures together involved many moves, to Ottawa, Mississauga and Brantford, eventually settling back in St. Catharines where they would raise their three children Kate, Julia and Chris.
Though Cameron worked hard and traveled often, during his time with John Deere, he was always there for his family. Coaching Chris’ baseball teams when he could and being there to encourage his daughters when they needed him. One thing we always knew is our Dad had our backs and would do anything for us.
When grandchildren came along, Cameron flourished in his new role. He spent hours loving them as infants and entertaining them as toddlers, encouraging them as they grew. Grandpa was their go-to for walks in the woods and fishing off the dock. And he loved nothing more than to welcome his growing family into his home and watching as the action unfolded around him. Grandpa was always there to send his grandchildren off with a handshake and warm hug.
The community remembers him for his time as a proud member and past president of the Rotary Club of Huntsville. Cameron loved his Muskoka community, volunteering and giving back to those who enriched his life and the lives of others.
Without a doubt, the greatest gift that Cameron gave to his family was the gift of his time and his unconditional love. He will be missed immeasurably.
He requests that donations be made to the Rotary Club of Huntsville so they may continue to serve others.
A Celebration of Cameron’s life will take place when possible at his favorite place, on the dock, with the sun dipping below the horizon and surrounded by friends and laughter.
The family would like to thank the wonderful medical staff at Huntsville District Hospital and special gratitude to the staff at Hospice Huntsville for making his last days graceful.
Cameron is survived by his beloved wife, Barbara, three children, Kate, Julia and Chris (Heather). Seven grandchildren, Cameron, Carlyn, Olivia, Graydon, Carmen, Trevor and Jake. He is further survived by his siblings, Irvine, Henry (Marlene), Patricia (Forbes), Charles (Jan) and Margaret. Cameron also leaves behind life-long friends and family Ron and Sally Brooks, Judy Brooks and Chris Brennan.
He was welcomed to heaven by his granddaughter Carmen Leolani, as they surely took their place on the dock with fishing rod in the water and enjoying a huge bowl of ice cream.
