Cam, known to his family and friends as “Pat” because of his St. Patrick’s Day birthday, was born in Gadsden, Alabama on March 17, 1931. He moved to Tampa, Florida at the age of five and graduated from Hillsborough High School in 1948.

He was happily married to his high school sweetheart, Iona Evans Carlisle, for a joyous 61 years. He has been a faithful member of Belmont Baptist Church where he served since 1936, where he married Iona, and raised three children, Roger, Rodney, and Cami.

He served in the U. S. Army Reserve from 1947 to 1991 for a total of 44 years. He enjoyed a career of barbering in the family barbershop with his father, Cam, and his fun brother Robert, “Bob”, for 10 years. Throughout his life, he continued to carry his barber tools wherever he went cutting family and friends hair, and sharing the love of Jesus while he had a captive audience. At the end of his working career, he also had fun times as a coffee salesman for Morrisons and Naviera Coffee Company with his own business known as Cam’s Coffee Service.

Pat and Iona enjoyed fun retirement years making many friends as dedicated volunteers with Campers On Mission. They served the Lord as they hung and finished drywall on various church building projects, and cutting hair throughout the United States.

In Pat’s life, he was known as the best husband, daddy, son, brother, and papa to 13 grandchildren and great grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to Campers On Mission, P.O. Box 318, Mayo, FL 32066.

Pat is enjoying his time with the Lord and his wife right now. He is made anew and has no more pain or worries. We should be assured of his reward in Heaven as he lived his life in God's blessed will. We will miss him here but will rejoice with him one day if we know Jesus as he did. He was always kind and giving, and loved his family through Christ. Let us remember his example, and honor him in living as he did, for the good of Christ. Surely God is saying to him "Well done, my good and faithful servant". Let us all be that privileged. We love you Pat.
