CHAMPION — Brad Cameron, 54, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, Dec. 28, 2021.
He was born Feb. 11, 1967, the son of Ellsworth and Shirley Cameron.
He attended Joseph Badger schools and the former Trumbull County Joint Vocational School, graduating in 1985. He was a lifetime resident of Trumbull County.
He was a supervisor at Johnson Rubber in Middlefield, before transferring to Tarkett Inc. where he spent the last 15 years.
Brad was a wonderful man with a big heart. He was a “simple man” that valued the little things in life. He found true peace when in the woods or on the water, immersed in nature. He enjoyed raising beagle hunting dogs, running them for practice and rabbit hunting. He was a grand champion hunter, participating in national beagle trials. He also loved to deer hunt and taking trips to enjoy the sport in southern Ohio. He was an avid fisherman and would spend as much time on the boat with his son and daughter-in-law as he could.
Above all else, he most enjoyed homemaking and being with his family. His wife and his children were his world. He relished at the idea of taking in a craft show, joining the scene at a post-Thanksgiving sale, hosting fish frys or putting something on the smoker, taking in a movie under a blanket, in the recliner, or occasionally, venturing to Heinz Field to cheer on the Pittsburgh Steelers.
He loved listening (and often times singing along) to music by P!nk, Rod Stewart, AC/DC and even Cher. Brad took his family to many concerts to see their favorite artists, including Taylor Swift. He was proud to spend time with his daughter, finding an occasional “treasure” at a garage sale or taking in the latest episode of “90 Day Fiance.” He was thrilled at the idea of being a part of wedding dress shopping with his future daughter-in-law. He was so proud to watch his family grow and unite for a beautiful farm wedding this last fall.
He had a laugh that had a way of making you feel warm. There was a twinkle in his eye that you just couldn’t ignore. He will be passionately missed.
He leaves his beloved family to cherish his memory, his wife, Marilyn Brdek Cameron and their children, Tyler (Laurin) Cameron of Mecca; and daughter, Toni Cameron of Champion. He also leaves his son, Cory Cameron of Lafayette, Tenn.
Brad will be reunited in Heaven with his son, Taylor Cameron; his father, Ellsworth Cameron; mother, Shirley Cameron; sister, Dawn Cameron; brother, Bryan Cameron; and sister in-law, Barb Brdek.
Friends and family may call for a memorial service from 2 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2022, at Peter Rossi Funeral Home, where COVID-19 precautions are requested.
In lieu of flowers, it is requested by the family that a monetary donation is made to Springfield Beagle Club, 625 Fallecker Road, Butler, PA 16002.
