In Loving Memory of Michael William Cameron

It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Michael William Cameron on December 25th, 2020, at his home in Norland, in his seventy first year.

He was the dedicated son of Jim and Kay Cameron and loving big brother to Pete Cameron. Mike married the love of his life Lynn almost 50 years ago and together they built an incredible life dedicated to their family and many treasured friends. The best father ever to William, Kathleen, Kirsten and James. Mike was the adored grandpa to Lyla, Morgan, Iris, Dermot, Michael, Seamus, and Finlay. Uncle Mike was the favourite of his nieces and nephews, and always there for his mother-in-law, Iris Ratcliffe and sister-laws, Catherine Hanna, Heather and Robin Ratcliffe. He was well loved by his aunts, uncles and many cousins. Mike was a great friend neighbours from Courtice, Norland and Pelican Way. He is dearly missed.

A Private Family Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. John’s the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church, Kirkfield, Ontario on Thursday, December 31, 2020. Spring Interment will be held at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Cemetery, Victoria Road.

In lieu of flowers we ask to be like Mike, and offer an extra kindness to strangers, and dedication and devotion to loved ones as he did each day of his life.

Arrangements entrusted to the Gordon A. Monk Funeral Home Ltd., Minden, Ontario.

Private Condolence

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to my dear sister Lynn and her family at the sudden loss of Mike.

I attended high school with Mike ("Irish" as he was known) for 4 years along with Dan Chin (Robin's late ex husband) and my husband Ken. We were in many classes together and shared a lot of good times. Through this connection Mike met Lynn and they were joined at hip ever since. Mike delivered an amazing eulogy at my mother's funeral. He always knew the right thing to do, his wisdom and guidance was steadfast. He will be sadly missed. His many memories will live on with friends and family forever.
Rest in peace Mike.
Cate Hanna, sister-in-law

Michael came into our family's lives 5 years after our dad had passed away.He was instantly a big brother! He was my sister Lynn's soul mate,especially as they were born on the same day. I never questioned his love for our family. Mike always treated his nieces and nephews as if they were his own. Everyone loved their uncle Mike for he could do no wrong ! We went through good times and bad,happy and sad times as families do. I always loved our family gatherings, so many memories! I will always treasure my thoughts of Mike as a most caring and spiritual person. I will miss him dearly. Love you Mike ,Heather, Christian and Blaise

I only had the honor of knowing you for six years (far too brief), but the wisdom you imparted and the example you set will stay with me always. You have left a legacy of love and family that will far outlive your time in this life, and will be the model for all of us that remain here that got to know you.

I will always cherish that summer in 2017 doing DIY projects with you and Lynn at Kirstie's house. The days were long and hot and the work was hard, but you were always upbeat and quick with a witty comment. I still laugh when I think back to you telling me "You're father must be a very patient man" every time I screwed up something we were working on - and that was often so you had to say it a lot (and no, my dad was not as patient with me as you were). I learned so much from you and Lynn that summer, and still use every bit of those lessons.

Most of all, I will remember 3 years ago this very night when you shared those kind words of condolence and support after I lost my own dad just weeks before. You never got to meet my dad, but you were both two of a kind - strong, from proud Scottish stock, and men who raised large amazing families and always put them first. I know my dad will find you in the next life and have a tall glass of single malt in his hands for you. Thank you for impacting me so much over such a short time.

To Lynn, Peter, Willi, Katie, Kirstie, James and all of the grandkids and extended family; I know the loss of Mike is unbearable right now and that there is a hole in your hearts. I also know from personal experience that although men like Mike can never be replaced, his memory, his love for you all, and the lessons he taught will never leave you.

My deepest condolences and love to you all. - Bruce

Wanted a big Brother and got The Best!

Vince and you were meant to be.

You had me at the cherry tarts when you first met.
Lynn was so excited to make them for you, and you didn’t have the heart to tell her they weren’t your fave, so you put them in your pocket "for later". (Kay said they were still there a lot “later" :))
That kindness defined you for me; I knew you would be a loving partner to my big Sister, and she was smitten. You are her everything.

SO many memories...

From the early days, taking me fishing and baiting my hook ‘cause I was creeped out by those tiny (alive) frogs you brought for bait! Jeezuz, Mick, 50 years later and I’m still creeped out!
Don’t remember catching any fish, but know now it was a quiet time to check in.
Thank you.

Taking me door to door to sell Toronto Star subscriptions (I was terrified, but wouldn’t tell you), you always said I was doing a great job. (I wasn't :)
I know now, you were instilling confidence, when I needed it.
Thank you.

A proud, loving, and generous Dad to Willie, Katie, Kirstie, and James, you put family first, with room left over to include kindness to friends, neighbours, and strangers.
A lesson in love for all to live by.

When Rory and Jade were born, you and Vince cheered us on every step of the way!
They grew up knowing they could always count on Uncle Mike.

Thank you for making the trip for every graduation and wedding.
The importance you placed on our family milestones means so much to us.

And let’s not forget Mischievous Mike...
Lynn’s 50th birthday in Cuba comes to mind.
Playing Bingo at the resort, I filled one line on my card and asked you if I won.
You urged me to “Stand up and yell BINGO!", all the while knowing the rule was to fill the card.
I recall you taking great pleasure in joining the other guests chanting “IN THE POOL!”, while I jumped in with my clothes on; the penalty for erroneously calling “Bingo" :))

I could go on…but, for now, I will listen to Neil Diamond and remember.

I love you, Mick, and will miss you until we meet again.
