It is with great sadness that the family of A. Cameron `Cam’ McKee announces his passing on January 14, 2016 after a lengthy illness. Cam was born on September 30, 1941 in Bralorne, BC (near Lillooet), and was the eldest of four siblings.
Cam served in the Canadian Armed Forces as a rifleman from 1958 until 1962. He married Alma Marie Praxede LeComte on June 2, 1962 and worked as a barber in Newton before moving to Quesnel in 1973. Cam was an avid hunter and fisherman, hockey fan, gold miner, and a realtor in Quesnel for over 30 years.
He was pre-deceased by his wife of 45 years, Alma, in 2007, by his mother, May Field McKee Yarrow, in 2011 and his fathers, William “Ted” McKee and Edward Yarrow. Cam is survived by his sister Chris (Rip) Riopelle; his brothers Edward (Sheila) Yarrow and Mike (Sherry) Yarrow; his daughters Lori (Mike) McKee, Terri (Daryll) Matula, and Christi (Jason) Poitras and by his five grandchildren Rebecca (Jarratt) Nazaruk, Michael (Carmen) Matula, Katie Stringer, and Garret and Natalie Poitras.
The family would like to thank everyone at the Dunrovin Park Hospice for their kind and compassionate care in Dad’s final days – it was invaluable.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Q & D Hospice & Palliative Care Society or to the Canadian Cancer Agency would be appreciated.
A Celebration of Cam’s Life will be held in the spring of 2016.
