Cameron UNDERHILL

Cameron Thomas Underhill


Cameron Thomas Underhill, age 36 years, from Mission, BC passed away August 18th in VGH Intensive Care. He suffered a severe head injury while riding his bicycle to work on Tuesday, August 15th. Cam was born to John and Carolyn Underhill in Hockley Valley, Ontario and moved to BC when he was 1 year old. He attended Mennonite preschool, Albert McMahon Elementary and Hatzic Secondary School. Cam was many things to the fortunate people who were graced with his wonderful company. Skilled woodworker, avid gardener, dedicated father to his son Harrison, recently turned 2, and baby girl on the way, soulmate to his bride-to-be Amanda Treanor, considerate son, brother, relative and friend. Many would consider that Cam had earned an honorary masters degree in fishing. He had a 6th sense, a retriever’s nose and a sense of humour surpassed only by his positive attitude and empathy for others. He was a wise soul, at one with nature; lakes, streams, ponds, forests and gardens were his favourite places. They nourished his keen senses and provided him with inspiration and ideas. Cameron is in Heaven now. He is with his mom Carolyn, his grandpa David Barrett, his nana Celia, his grandad Jack Underhill, his auntie Wendy and cousin Philip, as well as Amanda’s dad Patrick. He will always be in our hearts and leaves a huge gap in our lives that we are all determined to fill with his legacy of love – his bride-to-be Amanda and kin (son Harrison, along with Maureen, Anne, Dawson and Patrick); his grandma Lillian Barrett; his dad John; his brothers and their kin: Shawn (Stephanie and Lillian) and Todd (Keira and Landon); his uncle Bob and kin (Joanne, Dan, Deanna, Ethan, Ava, Andrew, Theresa, Mike, Dylan and Kyla); his auntie Jeri-lou and kin (Alice, Mike, Courtney, Ellyson, McKenna, Brian, Krystle, Bryson, Spencer, Ricky, Monica and Nathan), his uncle Jonathan and kin (mother Irene, wife Cheryl, Josh and Maddie) as well as all of Cam’s family in England with whom he left an indelible mark in their hearts. Last but not least, all of his wonderful friends who spent so many joyous moments in his company. Rest in Peace our beloved angel. We are privileged to have spent this too short a time with him. Not only was Cam unique, he was genuine and kind-hearted. He will be honored at his celebration of life which will take place Saturday, September 9 (1:00 pm – 4:00 pm) at Silverdale Hall, McLean St., Mission, BC.
