Jody Bruce Cameron

December 9, 1969 — October 27, 2020

December 9, 1969 – October 27, 2020

The world was made brighter on December 9, 1969 when Jody Bruce Cameron came into it, second born of Jim and Carol Cameron. And the world dimmed on October 27, 2020, when Jody left it. His children; Samantha, Hunter and Owen, carry his empathy, humour and energy. His love for his children surpassed everything, and his main concern was that they want for nothing.

After a few years at university, Jody found his true calling. The trades were where Jody shone brightly. What better gift than to give people warmth, shelter and running water, a gift Jody gave generously throughout his life.

His talents didn’t stop there and he was always at the ready to answer the call from family, friends and strangers for issues from freezing, flooding, broken vehicles and renovations. Jody was always willing to lend his hands, expertise and heart to help those in need.

An unsung hero.

His quest for knowledge found Jody absorbing literature from philosophy to nature, creating a contradiction between red neck persona and his philosophic, intellectual nature. His skill at weaving his knowledge and experiences into stories kept many mesmerized. His intelligence caught many off guard when you found yourself discussing tribal culture with the man lying on the kitchen floor fixing a sink, or the philosophy of different political structures as you were handing him some barbed wire to fix your engine enough to make it to the mechanics.

A traveller by nature, adventure found him often before he found it.  His next adventure started before the rest of us were ready.

A celebration of Jody’s life will be held in the spring.
