Cameron was a gifted athlete, an exceptional student, a good friend, and a loving person. He excelled in wrestling and baseball, and was appreciated by his teammates and coaches. Cameron was an excellent student, achieving many honors, such as "Student of the Month" every single year, and becoming an ambassador in 5th grade. Cameron was nominated by teachers to go to the Junior National Young Leaders Conference in the 5th grade, and it proved to be the experience of a lifetime!
Cameron loved life, and his constant smile could bring out the best in others, and in each moment. He enjoyed listening to music and shooting pool. Cameron also had a very big appetite, and he never failed to say, every night, "Thank you for dinner, Mom". Cameron loved his family. He was very close with his sisters, and he was known for giving the very best hugs.
Cameron was a young man of character. He was generous with his time, and polite in his ways. He had many friends. Cameron was a team leader at home, on the field, and in the classroom, and always will be in our hearts. He is fondly remembered and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
