It does happen. Rough ore becomes a diamond. Angels travel among us trying to make the world better by helping one life and then another to see a better path. Clever men, able to fix things, able to build things. Artistic men who learn to play guitar and sing and entertain us with their humor and sometimes silly jokes. Men who give their all for others. This was Cameron. The world is deeply saddened by the loss. But his passionate energy has left the world better for his having been here. People will remember that. Cameron Ford passed away Thursday, July 14, 2022.

In our annual meeting we honor Cameron and his many years of incredible work and his incredible life.
