Sadly, on January 7, 2023, at the young age of 17, Cameron Douglas James Coulthart passed away following a 30-month battle with cancer. He passed peacefully at the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, surrounded by family.
Cameron was born on December 16, 2005, in Swan River, Manitoba. He became a big brother with the arrival of Emma in 2008, and a few years later with two stepsisters, Julia and Sydney. He was raised in Swan River, in town and later on an acreage. Cameron was very easy-going: initially he could be shy and reserved, but once he got to know you, his extroverted personality and great sense of humor would come out.
Cameron received his education in Swan River at Taylor Elementary, ESRSS and was currently in grade 12 at the SVRSS. His post-secondary aspirations had changed recently from graphic design to something in the medical fields.
Cameron had many interests. Two of his favorite activities were playing baseball with the Royals and playing football with the SVRSS Tigers. Although he wasn’t able to suit up with the Tigers much in the past two seasons, the team made sure to keep him involved and on the sidelines, and even gave him the opportunity to join in a few special plays at a home game. Cameron was a pet lover, having cats, rabbits, and a dog. He especially had a bond with the cats, and they could often be found cuddled up with him. He also enjoyed camping, spending time at the lake, and loved getting out in the boat and fishing. Cam was an avid gamer and enjoyed playing video games both with friends and online, sometimes for way too many hours into the night. He was well-known his love of sweets, a good juicy hamburger, ribs, and fresh sushi.
Friends were incredibly important to Cameron, and he never missed an opportunity to hang out or help any of his. He had so many great stories about time spent with great friends. Cameron also enjoyed spending time with family at get-togethers. He enjoyed a good bonfire or game night and was quite proud when he was old enough to play card games with the adults and show them his sense of humor.
A great sense of independence emerged once Cameron started working at Chicken Chef, even more so once he got his driver’s license. He loved the freedom of coming and going. He balanced work and school well, all while undergoing treatments.
With his diagnosis and many treatments, Cameron matured as someone well beyond his years. He chose to fight and try every available option, and had to make many difficult decisions. We are blessed for the love and support that we have received from our community here and in Saskatoon over this long journey.
He will be profoundly missed by all family, classmates, coworkers, and dear friends.
