Our sincere condolences on Don's passing.  Many students have special memories of music class and of course his musical concerts.  I remember the first time I saw him driving his Mustang Convertible to school.  You will all treasure his  memories.

hi barbara, colin and rosalea...your wonderful parents entrusted babysitting you kids to me (my first...yikes) a few times.  In  my "senior" 20/20 hindsight, you needed no babysitting--you were already well-nurtured by your nurse/mother and musical/teacher/ craftsman/etc father.  I remember those first, Spring weeks in 1967 in the new Brookside School hearing remarkable voice harmonies drifting through the walls from your dad's Gr.8 classroom into my Gr.8 room and wishing we could join in--it must have been unforgettable in his Belfast 1-room teaching yrs for those kids.  Oh yes, and you were nice neighbours across the road too...


Murray and Patricia  - 2020-04-23 14:28:18

We extend our deepest sympathy to you - Barbara, Colin, Rosalea and families on the death of your father. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

Our sympathy to The Cameron Family on the passing of your father, Don.

Don was my (Mary), first teacher in 1950 in the one room school, SS#3, West Wawanosh Twp., located next door to his home farm.

After school on many winter days, I remember walking home up the road behind Don, trying to follow in his long stride foot prints in the snow.

Sincerely,  Mary B. (Purdon) Gaunt, and                                           Barbara Ann (Purdon) Carey

Parents,  Bill & Mildred (McQuillin) Purdon - 9th Conc. West Wawanosh

Mr. Cameron was a well respected teacher at Brookside Public School. And many of his former students, myself included, could still tune a ukulele.  "My dog has fleas!"

I am so sorry to hear of Don's passing, and so sorry we cannot gather to acknowledge this gentle and special man. Most of all I remember the twinkle in his eye as a story was building, or as he saw the funny side of a happening- I loved his wit. There will have to be a commemorative convertible ride this summer. with love and caring, Sheila Clake

Mr. Cameron taught me grade 8 at Brookside - a very long time ago (40 years!).   Although I'd be a bit rusty, I could likely still parse a sentence and play the recorder, all thanks to him.    

My condolences to Ros and the rest of the family.
