McCAMUS, David Robert - (1931 - 2019) - With great sadness we announce the passing of our hero Dave on Tuesday April 16th, 2019 at the Trillium Mississauga Hospital.
Beloved husband of Inez (nee Tracy) of Sudbury for 63 years and brother of John D McCamus, he was pre-deceased by brothers Frank and Walter and sister Marion Odell.
Wonderful father to Greg McCamus (Amy), Jane McCamus (Dave Murray), Carolyn McCamus (Paul Lawson) and Brad McCamus (Marianna Kapala) and proud Grandpa to Natalie Kofler, Dave McCamus, Max Lawson, Gregory McCamus, and Claire McCamus.
Treasured Brother-in-law to Norma Collett and her husband Bert. Dave passed peacefully with his loving family at his side. Dave was born in Walkerton Ontario to William R McCamus and Margaret (Irene) McCamus (nee Moore) and was raised in St Catherines, Ontario.
Dave was always very committed to charitable work and interests including his involvement with The United Way (where he chaired the 1983 GTA campaign), The YMCA, West Park Hospital, The Learning Partnership, and he also offered his time and support to many community activities including serving as a Big Brother in the Halton District School Board.
In retirement Dave pursued his hobbies with his usual energy and vigor and was active with the Probus South Mississauga organization but also very engaged with his passions of photography, woodworking, and primarily enjoying time with his family during active summers at Blackstone Lake. Dave was consumed with his interest and fascination with the natural world and an avid birder and lover of nature.
His passion, eternal optimism and his unique ability to find the best in every person he touched will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
Arrangements have been made at Glen Oaks Funeral Home, Oakville, Ontario with visitation Thursday May 2nd (7:00 - 9:00 pm) and a Celebration of Life on Friday May 3rd from 12:00 to 2:00 pm. Eulogies to begin at 12:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served.
In lieu of flowers, the family would suggest donations to Ontario Nature, YMCA Pinecrest Camp through Glen Oaks funeral hoe, or to a charity of your choice.
