We regret to announce the passing of Colin Cameron, Cabot Street, Sydney, on August 21st surrounded by his family at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital after a brief illness.

Born in Mabou and raised in Port Hawkesbury, Colin worked for Human Resources Development Canada for 25 years until his retirement in 1995. After retirement, Colin wanted to keep active in the community and volunteered with the school breakfast program. He also decided to get his real estate agent's license and worked for Home Life MacNeil in Sydney for 5 years and really enjoyed doing something different.

Colin was a very kind, considerate and generous husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He had a very strong faith and was a devoted member of St. Theresa parish for over 45 years and was a very active member of the Men's Club. He also counted the weekly collection for the church for over 35 years and was a 3rd degree member of the Knights of Columbus, council 1060. Colin always enjoyed spending time with his family and appreciated Scottish music, attending all of the summer concerts across Cape Breton.

Colin was predeceased in 2010 by his wife Marcella with whom he enjoyed 46 years of marriage. Colin is survived by his three sons, Blair (Kamy), Glace Bay; Gus (Sonya), Sydney; and Doug (Tracey), Ottawa. Colin was Grampy to Kyle, Kaitlyn, Elizabeth, Emily and Annalese. He was brother to Kaye (late Hugh MacEachen), Port Hood; Duncan (late Kay Cameron), Port Hawkesbury; Dougald (Florence), West Bay; Roy (late Chris Cameron), Antigonish and Alexander (Judy), Antigonish. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Colin was predeceased by his parents Alex and Mary Anne Cameron, brothers Angus (late Louise Cameron), Port Hawkesbury and John (late Theresa Cameron), North Sydney and sister Mary (late Hugh MacNeil), Port Hood.

Visitation will be at T.W.Curry Parkview Chapel, 755 George Street, Sydney on Thursday August 24th, 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral mass will be celebrated at 11:00 am on Friday August 25th at St. Theresa Church, Whitney Avenue with Fr. Dennis Lamey officiating. Interment will be in Resurrection Cemetery.

We would like to thank Dr. Paul Murphy for his support and care for our dad over many years. We would also like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of 4B and in the An Cala unit for palliative care at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.

Da was always there for our family, sharing in our successes and supporting us in our moments of great challenge. He was always ready to lend a helping hand throughout our lives and taught us to do the same. His laughter and love carries on with us and continues to be a part of who we are. Thanks Da.
