We're left to say goodbye and
to mourn a man of love
God has placed his hand now,
to take him up above.
We lose our master builder,
our singer and our friend
This new beginning for him is
our sad and lonely end.
His family left to shed a tear
and remember with our love
God has placed his hand now,
to take him back above.
A legacy of wood and crafts and
music cheers our hearts
It's time to say goodbye now as
we mourn and he departs.
We listen to our souls and
we feel as we've bereft of
a man who God has placed his
hand and taken him above.
We love and miss you, Pop Cammie

He was known by all as a down-to-earth, fun-loving, thoughtful, and humble person. He made a difference to the people he met and will be missed by many. He was born in Cape Breton, NS where he grew up playing pond and school hockey, a passion which became a big part of Don's life and career. He attended the Athol Murray College in Wilcox, SK and played with the Notre Dame Hounds under Père Murray, who had a great influence on his life. He went on to play hockey in Western Canada and the US for a number of years before coming to NL to coach the Grand Falls Cataracts and the St. John's Fieldians. While attending St. Mary's and St. FX Universities he coached and played varsity hockey and won the MVP award. When he started his teaching career in Corner Brook in 1964 he played and coached with The Corner Brook Royals. That team would capture the coveted Herder Memorial Trophy two years later. As principal of Templeton Collegiate he was a coach and mentor to many aspiring students, and held a commanding officer position with the Army Cadets Corp for 14 years. After retirement he became educational director and later president of SPAWN. He recently received the SPAWNER Hall of Fame award. He fulfilled a lifelong dream when he developed a Christmas tree hobby farm in Gillams - a serene place where his heart and soul will always be. Donations in his memory can be made to The Western Memorial Hospital Foundation, the Food Bank, or to the charity of your choice.

She is survived by her son Neil (Judy) and her daughter Judy as well as many nieces and nephews. She moved to Stephenville in 1952 when her husband and his brother, Harold, started Pinsent Const. Company Ltd. Even though she never worked outside the home she loved cooking and baking especially for the United Church Women's Association and anybody else who needed a fruit cake or cookies. She had a big heart and a quick sense of humour and loved her animals. Viola lived in her own home in Stephenville until her health declined due to dementia. Over the years as her condition worsened she was still able to smile and laugh and remember her friends and family. Right up to the end she always made it to the poles to vote for "Joey" and her Liberals. She always loved her "large" earrings so at 89 years old finally had her ears pierced.
