It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John Murray Lawton (Château) Cameron on February 10th at the Roblin District Health Centre at the age of 93.
Murray was born in Russell on June 29, 1925 to Malcolm and Margaret Cameron. The youngest of four children, Murray was raised in Tummel, Manitoba, a farming community which always remained dear to his heart. It was here that he would enjoy a successful career in farming.
In 1956, Murray was hospitalized for a back injury while working in the logging industry in Fort Frances, Ontario. It was there that he would meet a young nurse, the love of his life, Shirley. They were married in 1959 and had two daughters, Lori and Nancy and subsequently two granddaughters, Whitney and Allyson, who were the apples of his eye.
Murray was known to all for his jokes, stories and pranks. As a younger man, he enjoyed spending time at the Pig N Whistle or the curling club and more recently at the 50 and Over Club, where he could share laughs with good friends. He will be dearly missed by all, but his stories will make us smile for years to come.
The family would like to extend our gratitude to the staff of the Roblin District Health Centre and Personal Care Home, the Home Care team and to the many friends who provided such excellent care to Dad in his later years.
A Celebration of Life was held at the Chapel of NairnChyz-Wolkowski Funeral Home in Roblin on Friday, February 15th with Reverend Karen Kuzek officiating. In lieu of sending flowers, the family requests that you plant some in your garden in his memory. Dad would have liked that. Donations to the Roblin 50 and Over Club would also be gratefully accepted.
