Cameron was born in Gargunnock, Scotland to Colin and Rena Ferguson on April 12, 1952. He came to Toronto, Canada in 1972 and then made his way to the west coast. He worked as an electrician and eventually was employed with the railway. He worked for CN and CP Rail as well as Via Rail. He really enjoyed being a musician. He was gifted with a beautiful voice and he played a number of instruments. When he was young, he learned the bagpipes and never stopped playing them. His passion was singing and playing music for his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He played bagpipes for many occasions, playing for weddings and funerals, and any occasion that needed a piper. He was happy to do it. He played the pipes for the Remembrance Day services at the Church and on the street in Middleton for outdoor Christmas festivities. He sang and played guitar for Sunday school children and numerous seniors’ facilities. He played at Scott Mission in Toronto and sang and gave testimony at the Union Gospel Mission in Winnipeg as well.
Cameron is survived by his wife, Cheryl Ferguson of Cornwallis Park, NS. He is also survived by his children, Scott Ferguson and Shelley Ferguson living in Vancouver, BC, and Bill Bowers and wife, Lindsey Bowers, living in Edmonton, AB.
