Cameron Douglas Stuart passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 24, 2024 at Huron Shores Hospice in his 76th year, surrounded by loved ones.

Survived by his wife, Barbara (nee Pepper) and by his eldest son, Craig and daughter-inlaw Gemma of Calgary; daughter, Vicky and sonin-law Riley McGee and their children Matheson, Jack, and Rosalie of Sherwood Park, AB; step-son, Michael Wood and daughter-in-law Nicole and their children Claire, Remy, and Maggie of Kitchener; predeceased by his son Michael (2009). He was also outlived by his “beloved” 1939 Chevy, 55 Ford Truck and other orphan projects in various states of repair.

Cam began his working career as a landscape architect for National Parks followed by private practice. Most notably, he contributed to the creation of the campgrounds in Banff, Yoho, Jasper, and Cape Breton Highlands National Park. In 1979, he joined the family business, Bonnie Stuart Shoes and held various leadership positions, ultimately serving as president, a role he held for more than 10 years.

He ran the business with the utmost integrity until market conditions changed, forcing him to close the business, the last and oldest children’s shoe manufacturing company in Canada.

Cam had a great love for building hot rods (and lots of scars to prove it). He also enjoyed golfing, playing bridge, CFL football, and watching the Saturday night pipe band parades. Cam enjoyed time with friends and family telling stories that seemed to get better with age and pontificating about political ideas. Cam was a unique person who will be missed.

In Cam’s own words, “Period. End of conversation”. The Family of Cam Stuart will receive friends at Davey-Linklater Funeral Home, 757 Princes Street, Kincardine on Wednesday February 28th 2024 from 12:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. Funeral service will be held in the chapel at 2:00 p.m. Donations in memory of Cam can be made to Canadian Red Cross and Huron Shore Hospice.
