Hugh Morris Cameron We regret to announce the sudden passing of Hugh Morris Cameron of Inverness, (1935-2019) on December 20th in QE11 Health Sciences Centre, Halifax. Hugh is survived by his daughter, Susan Cameron Kennedy (Pat); granddaughter, Skylar Kennedy; sister, Elizabeth; and many cousins. Hugh is predeceased by his wife, Janet (Nichol); infant son, Craig; parents, Will and Eleanor (MacLean) Cameron; and sister, Joan. Hugh worked for Evans Coal Mines Ltd. but for most of his life he was self-employed, lumbering and farming on the same farm his father and grandfather operated. His work ethic, respect for animals and willingness to help others was well-known. His keen memory and terrific sense of humor contributed to his masterful storytelling, a gift he loved to share with the many visitors that were welcomed into the home. Hugh will be greatly missed, but especially by his daughter and granddaughter who were the joy of his life. Hugh has been cremated and according to his wishes there will be no wake or funeral. Burial will take place at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to St. John's United Cemetery Fund and the Inverness Food Bank. Online condolences may be made to: www.invernessfuneralhome.com

Hugh was a cheerful presence in our lives. He’d arrive in one of his trucks with Sparky riding shotgun, and begin by telling a joke that got us all laughing. Then he’d get down to the business at hand of loading pulpwood, stacking saw logs, or dumping manure for our garden. His love of animals and family were always evident, as was his work ethic which recalled the self-reliance of the Scottish pioneers. Our sincere condolences to Elizabeth, Susan and Skylar.
