He graduated Miami High School with the class of '67 and then attended N.E.O. Junior College until he enlisted in the Navy in 1969. He proudly served his country in the Vietnam War until 1973. Afterwards he attended and graduated from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, where he lived for 30 years.
He worked in new home sales until he and his wife Cynthia relocated their family in 2003 to Branson, Missouri, where he worked in sales for Bluegreen Corp. for over 12 years. His exemplary work ethic, integrity and honesty were the hallmark of his reputation throughout his sales career, which garnered respect from his clients and co-workers alike. He was devoted to his family and was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, and a good friend to many.
He is survived by his wife, Cynthia Cameron, and seven children, Damian Cameron and wife Rita, Tyler Cameron and wife Trista (all of Albuquerque New Mexico), Amanda Haas and husband Jonathan (currently serving in USAF in Brisbane Australia), Alicia Summers and husband Andy of Salem Missouri, Ashley Wright and husband Jonathan of Kirbyville, Missouri, Austin Cameron, student at UMKC Music Conservatory in Kansas City, Missouri, as well as his youngest child, Audrey Cameron of Branson, Missouri, his parents, Elisabeth and Ben Cameron, and sister, Elizabeth Sawyer (all of Miami, Oklahoma). He was "Papa Rob" to thirteen grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
So that others may benefit, he selflessly donated his body to medical research. He will be laid to rest with full military honors at the Veterans Cemetery, south of Springfield, Missouri.
Rob had a great sense of humor and loved to tell a good joke that would bring a smile to others. He is, and will always be, greatly missed.
