|(Tuesday - March 23,
2021) - Keith Wayne Cameron, age 89, born August 1, 1931, was called
home to heaven on March 20, on the wings of angels, to be with his
beloved, while surrounded by his family.
Keith, "Pops" (as he was
called), was born in Iron Mountain and spent all his life, the only
child, to Malcolm and Josephine (St. Louis) Cameron. Pops' father,
Malcolm, passed away when Pops was twelve years old. His mother then
married Albert Quick, they built a house on Hamilton Lakes, and Pops
resided with them.
On February 1, 1969, Pops married Rose Marie
Stafford and her four children. "I asked the Lord to bless me with an
angel in my life - A woman I could treasure as a loving friend and wife
- And so you came from Heaven as the answer to my prayer - And changed
my world forever through the precious love we share."

sang in St. Mary and St. Joseph church choir. His spot in church was the
third row, end seat, right side. After retirement, Keith and Rose
enjoyed breakfast at B's cafe and lunch at the C&R. On Fridays, mom got
her hair done, and dad delivered loaves of bread to the "girls." He also
made bread for the priests at St. Mary's and Joe's. Keith cared for Rose
endearingly until her passing, September 2013. Ever since Keith longed
to be with her, his prayers have finally been answered.
