Locally/Independently Owned & Operated

Cameron, Kevin

In loving memory of Kevin Cameron who passed away at the Maison Vale Hospice, Sudbury on Saturday, April 4, 2015 after a three year battle with brain cancer at the age of 63. Kevin was a Lake Nipissing tourist camp operator and is survived by his wife, Leslie, son Zachary, daughter Merideth and sister Judi. He will be fondly remembered by his many nieces and nephews as well as friends and co-workers. He was predeceased by his parents, Wally and Hazel Cameron and sister, Cheryl Baker.
Carrying on the tradition started by his grandmother, Lillian Batsford, followed by his parents, Kevin and Leslie operated Lakair Lodge on the West Arm of Lake Nipissing for 25 years. Born in Sturgeon Falls, ON, Kevin studied music at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and later graduated from Cambrian College, Sudbury as a Geological Technologist. Kevin worked in the field of geophysics in Oman, Finland, Jamaica, the U.S. and across Canada. He was locally recognized for his work in promoting the Lake Nipissing area through his affiliations with the Lake Nipissing Walleye Restocking Program, Lake Nipissing Stewardship Council and Friends of Mashkinonje Provincial Park. An ardent musician, Kevin was a member of the Sudbury Hilltop Seniors Dance Band and the Monetville Music Club playing the trumpet. Being an avid jazz fan took him to band camp in New Orleans, a city he dearly loved.
Kevin's family would like to sincerely thank the staff of Maison Vale Hospice for making Kevin's last weeks a comfort to him and for the gift of quality time that touched us all. Sympathy may be expressed through donations to Maison Vale Hospice (www.maisonsudburyhospice.org/en/how-donate) and the Friends of Mashkinonje (www.mashkinonje.com/member.html). A Celebration of Life service will be held on Saturday, May 9th at 2:00 pm at Calvary Mennonite Church, Monetville ON.

9 Condolences

  1. Leslie, Zachary, Merideth and Judi,

    We were very sorry to hear of Kevin’s passing. Although our paths did not cross often in life, I always heard about Kevin’s adventures through Aunt Hazel. I have always enjoyed music and the outdoors so can appreciate his love of the trumpet and the time he spent at Lakair Lodge carrying on many years of family tradition.

    We send out deepest condolences to all of you at this very difficult time and may the support of family and friends give you strength and comfort.

  2. I only knew Kevin and the family for 4 months however it felt much much longer. Kevin was a man to learn from. He was a doer, he set goals and would complete them. He was so mentally strong through the struggles and witnessing that showed me that life is what you make it. Through the stories that repeated at least 5 times they never bored me. Kevin was a man to look up to and learn from and I’m proud to say that the summer of 2013 was the best learning experience I could have ever had and il remember that summer for years to come. Have a big ass bowl of pasta up there Kev you deserve it. For the rest of the Cameron family, I give my condolences and wish you guys all the best and hope to see you guys this summer. SIincerely, dock boy Bob

  7. Over the years, Kevin and I had many great conversations on so many different subjects; I believe we resolved every problem in the world over those years. Unfortunately, no one would listen to us. I will miss those conversations. RIP Kevin…………..
