Cameron, John "Jack", age 69, Caledonia Mills, Antigonish County passed away peacefully June 22, 2022, surrounded by family.

Born in Antigonish he was the son of the late John Alexander and Mary Anna (MacDonald) Cameron.

Dad enjoyed the simple things in life, a good cup of tea, playing crib, going for drives and most of all spending time with his family and his beloved grandsons.

Early on Dad found his love for driving, which lead to 47 years on the road. He was proud of his career and was one of the lucky ones who truly loved his job. He made many friends in his years of trucking, and even more memories. Memories that turned into stories – and an avid storyteller he was! Those who were fortunate enough to sit around his kitchen table were always in for a real treat – reminiscing about days gone by and belly laughs so big you were sore by the end of it. 

One of Dad’s favorite jobs was being a Papa. He lit up when his grandchildren were around. He loved some friendly competition – board games and a good game of crib (but with Dad it was never about who was winning, but about who was cheating!).Of course we can’t talk about the things Dad enjoyed in life without mentioning the bond he had with his dogs, Sam and Max. They were the best of friends, and Dad couldn’t go anywhere without them.

He was a rock to those around him. A safe haven. A place where the tea was always on, and an ear was ready to listen. He will be greatly missed by his wife Patricia "Patsy" (Shaw); children: Colleen (Sandy) Richard, Charlos Cove; John Cameron, Halifax; Florence (Kyle) Sponagle, Guysborough Intervale; Jacob (Ashleigh) Cameron, Antigonish; grandchildren, Lucas, Alexander, and Cameron; brother: Donald (Donna), Dartmouth; sisters: Isabel (Archie) Chisholm, Guysborough Intervale; Mary (Stephen) Williams, Guysborough; Deborah Cameron, Halifax, and special sister Catherine Mae (Ed Kehoe), D’Escousse, and many nieces and nephews. 

Special thank you to the Palliative Care team at St. Martha’s for their loving care and support during his final days.

Visitation will be in C.L. Curry Funeral Home, 135 College Street, Antigonish on Sunday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 pm.  Funeral Mass will be in St. Andrews Church, St. Andrews on Monday at 11:00 am with Reverend Andrew Gillies presiding.  Burial in South River Cemetery.  Donations in memory may be made to St. Martha’s Regional Hospital Foundation.  Online condolences: www.clcurry.com.

"Keep on trucking"
