COLVIN – Camron Grey

October 25, 1959 – July 15, 2011

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Camron Grey Colvin on Friday, July 15, 2011 at the age of 51 years.

Cam was a fun loving, athletic man who grew up in Calgary playing baseball and basketball. He was competitive, on and off the field, and loved watching football, playing board games, and especially watching his boys’ soccer games on the weekends. He was charismatic, charming and incredibly personable… the life of the party. Cam was a loyal friend and trusted financial advisor, working as a stockbroker for over twenty years at Yorkton and Leede Financial. He was bright and tenacious, and putting deals together was his forte. Above all though, Cam was a devoted father and his sons meant the world to him. Whether it was long road trips to Kelowna to visit friends or time spent teaching the boys sports in the park, Cam brightened their world in so many ways. He was supportive of their athletic and academic ambitions and, as everyone knows, was so proud of his boys.

Cam will be deeply missed by his two sons Brett and Sean; dad Bradley Colvin; sister Kelli Wilson (Fred); and nephews, Denver (Jannalee), Spencer, Trevor and Matt; and by his many, many friends. Cam was predeceased by his mom Val and his beloved sister Vanda.

A Memorial Service will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Friday, July 22, 2011 at 2:30 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of Cam. I met him through the Hesson Family many years ago. Each time we saw Cam it was like we had seen each other the day before. He really did have a big personality!
    My thoughts and prayers are with the boys and Cam’s family at this very sad time.

  6. I’m so sorry to hear about Cam’s passing. As one of Kelli’s school friends, I’ll always remember Cam’s dramatic change from a tall awkward teenager who grew into a handsome, confident, playful person who always seemed to have a kind word and a smile on his face. So very sorry for your loss.

    We are so sorry for your loss and our thoughts and hearts are with you at this time. Your Dad was soooo very proud of you, in all that you do.

    We have so many good memories of all of our travels together, the laughs, the banter and a road trip was always an adventure with your Dad.

    Cammyo, we will miss you, your booming voice, your presense and the great debates. (I’ll try to keep up on current events)

    With great memories,

    Lorne, my husband and I would like to say how deeply sorry we are to Brett and Seaney.. Lorne and I spoke with Cam almost every day and he will be dearly missed. In my married life with Lorne this past 15 years, Cam has been our stock broker but so much more- a real friend and confidant. Our kids are the same age and as mentioned those boys were his life. I remember going to soccer games when the boys were little. We had many good times and he truely was the life of the party- as he would often say where fitting “they would love my ACT” and we all did. He was truly one of a kind and I loved him. It actually goes back further for me, he grew up with my family, my Mother and Father. He was best friends with my Uncle – Ed Robinson all through his school years. My Uncle and him would often go to my Grandparents house for lunch and he always loved a good steak. Vanda was also very close with Ed and she is also sadly missed. It is a sudden and sad lost and my heart goes out to his boys who were his life. I will never forget and he will always hold a special place in my heart. If there is anything I can do for Brett or Sean I am here. I too lost my mother at a very young age and it is very difficult. Again, I am here if you need me. Love forever and always—Lisa and Lorne Gilbert.

    I remember Cam fondly from CHHS – while I was a typical ‘drama geek’ – Cam defined the word ‘jock’ as someone who was kind and sincere.
    As competitive as Cam was on the court/field, and aware of the strengths and weaknesses of his team-mates and opponents there, he was not only equally sensitive to the strengths and weaknesses of his friends and fellow students off the field, but respectful of everyone he encountered – a true gentleman and role model.
    My most sincere condolences to his sons, father, family and everyone who will miss him.
    Charles Porlier (& family)

I will always remember him, and I’m grateful for having known him and for the time we spent together.

    To all of the family members of my Dear friend Cam. I just found out this morning of his sudden death and I am still in shock and dismay. Sean and Brett you know that you both were the love of your fathers life. He loved you so much and I was part of that love and witness for a while and I will always remember you two wonderful kids. Cam never stopped talking about his boys. Make him proud and know that he is with you in spirit and never lose the love or the memories you shared with him. He really was a one of a kind guy and I am truly going to miss Cammy. My hugs and prayers are with you Sean and Brett. Laurie

    I also grew up with Cam at Rosedale Junior High. I remember him as a really nice guy. He was always smiling and I don’t remember him saying a single nasty thing about anyone. He was also the most talented athlete I knew. I’ve often wondered what that would have been like. Cam was a great guy. Every kid liked him. I am sorry to hear of his passing. He will obviously be greatly missed. My condolences to the whole family. Especially to you Kelli. I know he was a good brother.
