Cameron David Williams 1982 ~ 2008
Cameron David Williams, our dearly loved son, brother and friend, was set free from the bonds of mortality, Saturday, February 16th. He was born, December 9th, 1982, in Orem, Utah.Cam was victorious in life and was received by his Maker who gave him life. He is in a state of happiness, a state of rest, a state of peace, where he has respite from all the tubes, catheters and illness that tried to hold him down. He thirsts no more, he is no longer tired, he hungers no more, he runs, he walks, he is laboring and doing whatever is required of him, he is full of life, full of energy, and he is enjoying the presence of his ancestors and his Heavenly Father. Though his passing is devastating to us, we were granted a gift of six additional months that were beautiful and sacred. As his family, we feel cherished and blessed by our association with so great a man. Cam was dubbed at an early age by his siblings as "the perfect child." Indeed, he kept his religious covenants, honored his priesthood and fulfilled his roles, responsibilities and stewardships with great vigor. Cam took on a vicious foe in gastric cancer with all his heart, might and mind. His faith in Jesus Christ and in His enabling Atonement, coupled with the aid of non traditional and traditional medicine, gave him power to wage battle daily and to defy all medical laws. He handled this burden with dignity and grace. He kept his body and spirit undefiled and thus received the blessings of physical, emotional and spiritual strength, stamina and peace. Cam was a generous person and a friend to all, particularly to those whose hands hung low. Cam loved life and all the good things that were offered. He served an honorable and focused L.D.S. mission in the Italy, Rome Mission. He was entering his senior year at BYU. Cam has left a legacy in his short 25 years of love, honor, service and friendship to those who had the good fortune to know him. Cam had long arms and touched so many. Cam made a difference for good in the world and blessed the lives of countless people along his mortal sojourn. We join our hearts with those of you who knew him in bidding him a fond farewell and "we'll see you soon." Cam is survived by his parents David and Paula Williams; his siblings, Amber (David) Bauerle, Lindsey, Charisse and Tanner and his little nephew, Corbin; his grandparents, Shirley Williams, Paul and Alice Mann; along with many uncles, aunts and cousins. Funeral services will be held, (possibly closed casket), Saturday, February 23rd, 2008, at 11 a.m. with visitation two hours prior at the Provo Sharon East Stake Center, 1060 East 2500 North, Provo, UT.
