1927 – 2017
Mr. Dugald (Dug) Cameron, beloved husband of the late, Mrs. Bernice Cameron, passed away in Calgary, Alberta on Thursday, January 5, 2017, at the age of 89 years. Dug’s journey through life began with his birth on April 8, 1927 in Fairlight, Sask. He went on to graduate from the University of Saskatchewan to begin a career as a pharmacist. Along the way, he met Bernice “Barney” Tanner, and the two were married on November 25, 1954 in Moosomin. They moved to Regina, where they would spend the next 20 years raising a family. The couple then moved to Medicine Hat and made it their home for many very happy years. Dug enjoyed nature, hiking, playing cards with family and friends, and was a passionate, life-long, dyed-in-the-wool-Green fan of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, always with Barney at his side. They treasured countless hours over the years nature-watching while strolling the trails of Police Point Park. In his retirement, Dug enjoyed many years playing Seniors Slo-Pitch with an assortment of colourful, fun-loving teammates who became good friends. Dug had a great sense of humour and a quiet strength. He was a devoted husband and loving father, and is deeply missed by his son, Scott Cameron (Leanne Wirch) of Calgary; his daughter, Nancy (Tim) Kowalchuk of Calgary, and numerous nieces, nephews, and other relatives. A Graveside Service will be held at Hillside Cemetery in Medicine Hat on Wednesday, January 11, 2017, at 2:00 p.m. with Life Celebrant Gerry Getz officiating.
