FERGUSON, Cameron Peter Lloyd - October 5, 1949 - December 20, 2016 Cameron Peter Lloyd Ferguson of Spalding, SK, passed away on December 20, 2016 after a brief battle with cancer. He was 67 years old. Cam, the eldest of five children, was born to Lloyd and Gladys (nee Seckinger) Ferguson on October 5, 1949 in Nipawin, SK. He began working for the Co-op as a teenager. This job took him to many communities before he finally settled in Spalding, SK, and worked as the manager of the grocery store. In 1980, he moved his family to the farm after buying his first hive of bees. He was a successful beekeeper for over 30 years, and always strove to break his own records for the amount of honey produced per hive. After retiring from beekeeping, he continued to grain farm alongside his son, Chad. In the last year, he proudly helped Chad and Wendy pursue full-time farming. As a true testament to his character and love of farming, he drove the combine until 4:30 a.m. one morning in November, days before being diagnosed with cancer. Cam was a lifelong learner and enjoyed pursuing new interests. While working on the farm, he kept cattle, pigs, chickens, and a milking cow at various times in his life. His favourite time of year was spring, as it represented new growth and a new start. He enjoyed bird watching, just as his dad had, and was known to remark when the first robin of the spring appeared in the yard. Cam particularly liked meeting new people. He took up golfing as a hobby in the last few years and enjoyed winter holidays to Arizona with his special friend, Judy. He was an active member of his community and was involved in many organizations, including the Saskatchewan Beekeepers Association, Prairie North Co-op, Crossroads Bible Church and the Canadian Food Grains Bank. Cam was predeceased by his father, Lloyd Ferguson. He is survived by his three children: Angela (Murray) Poole, Chad (Wendy) Ferguson, and Kimberly Ferguson (Jon); and four grandchildren: Jayden, Julia, Damon, and Emily. He leaves to mourn his mother, Gladys Ferguson; siblings: Bonnie (Glen) Romaniuk, Shelly (Bob) Ford, Tim (Dianne) Ferguson, and Todd (Norrie) Ferguson; and many nieces and nephews. He will be lovingly remembered by Judy Regie and her children, grandchildren, and siblings. The Funeral Service was held at Crossroads Bible Church in Spalding, on Friday, December 23, 2016, at 10:00 a.m., officiated by Pastor Brian Unger. In lieu of flowers or donations, the family requests that you encourage and help someone you know to stop smoking, in memory of Cam. The family would like to thank Dr. Wingate and the staff at Melfort Union Hospital for their care in the last weeks, and to all those who visited and sent well wishes.

Dear Family,

Whenever my Dad took us to visit everyone, Cam and I always got together. When we grew up, Cam came to visit when I returned to the Melfort area. We had some serious chats along with lots of laughs over a meal or cups of tea. I will think of these good times often. I will miss Cam. My thoughts are with all of you. May your memories help you through this loss. Cousin Win
