Obituary of Harold Robert Cameron

Please share a memory of Harold to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Harold Robert Cameron. He passed away peacefully surrounded by loving family on January 3, 2024, at the age of 67 after a long and hard fought battle with diabetes, kidney and vascular disease. Harold was born on April 17, 1956 to Harold and Audrey (Gardiner) Cameron in North Sydney, Nova Scotia. He spent his early childhood in Sydney Mines before moving to New Glasgow as a young boy. He eventually settled in Stellarton, where he lived for over 30 years and raised a loving family of his own. As the middle child of seven brothers and sisters, he spent lots of time learning to share. How lucky was Harold that his siblings continued to be some of his closest friends and supporters throughout his life. His sister, Heather, was generous enough to donate her kidney to Harold in 2018, giving him a new lease on life and allowing him several more years spent with family and friends. Throughout his life and even as a young boy, Harold always knew the value of hard work. He began his career at Sobeys and worked for the company for 25 years. He later worked for Anchor Motors where his colleagues became friends. Even after retirement, they continued their friendship with regular coffee dates at their old stomping grounds. Harold met Vicky, his wife and the love of his life, at 23 years old. They took turns chasing after each other and then finally gave in to their mutual attraction. Harold worked hard to win over Vicky’s dad, and her parents soon loved him like a son of their own. During their 42 years of marriage, they still loved each other just as much, if not more, than in those early years. Harold could often be found doing odd jobs around the house at Vicky’s request. He may have grumbled at the first mention of yet another project, but it never took him long to dig out his tools. He may never have found a knack for measuring, but he always enjoyed the many projects that helped to make their house a cozy, welcoming place. Harold loved sharing a good time and a good laugh. They took many road trips and made countless memories with their good friends, Randy and Darlene, and spent many late nights laughing and carrying on with friends and family. Harold’s pride and joy were his children, Ashley and Robert. Growing up, he spent hours at the rink with Robert watching him play hockey and continued to enjoy watching his grandson play as well. He was so proud of all the things they accomplished, especially how they were able to grow their own loving families. They both knew throughout their whole life that if they ever needed anything, their dad was only a phone call away. Harold also deeply loved his grandchildren, Jet and Fin, and Sadie who recently joined his family. He loved spending time with them, teasing them and especially making them a big breakfast when they came to visit. Everyone agreed that Papa always made the best bacon! Harold always took things in stride. He never got bored, was never in a rush and never hurried. While he may not have been quick on his feet, he was always quick with a laugh, a smart remark and to lend a helping hand to those who needed it, never asking for anything in return. Even when his health challenges grew more serious, he never complained or felt down and out. He was humble, kind and truly satisfied with the life he built and the people who surrounded him. The world would be a better place if we learned a few lessons from Harold - accept all that life throws your way with grace and humor, be kind to those around you, and most of all, slow down; what’s the hurry? Harold was predeceased by his father Harold Cameron, father-in-law Stanford Fraser and niece Heather Connors. He leaves behind wife Vicky, daughter Ashley (Josh Beaver), son Robert (Jamie Fraser), mother Audrey, mother-in-law Dorothy Fraser, brothers Greg and Roy (Tina), sisters Jacqueline (Glenn) Connors, Patricia Woods, Heather Duncan, and Kathy (Clem) Decoste, grandchildren Jet, Fin and Sadie, as well as many nieces and nephews. On Harold’s behalf, his family would like to send their immense gratitude to the nursing staff on the 4th and 5th floor and ICU of the Aberdeen Hospital for the respect, compassion and genuine care shown to Harold and his family. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Stellarton Fire Hall from 2-4pm on Saturday, January 13. In Harold’s memory, take a minute to slow down and do a kind thing for someone else, as he would have done himself. www.angusfuneralhomes.com
