Marvin Kenneth Cameron passed away at the Foyer in Ponteix, Saskatchewan on April 17, 2023. He was born on October 18, 1934 (or 1933 depending on which birth certificate you read) at home in the Tompkins, Saskatchewan area. He was not registered for a birth certificate until he started school, and somehow there was a mystery about his birthdate, and he ended up with two birth certificates. Over the years he worked on many farms and ranches, as a police officer in Eastend, a garage, an auctioneer and as a livestock worker for Lang Livestock and Saskwheat Pool/ Viterra/ Heartland. He moved to the farm in Cabri in 1996 and remained there until February 2022, when he moved to the Foyer in Ponteix due to failing health. His greatest loves in life where his family (especially grandchildren), horses, and his dog. He loved to visit and tell stories. He brought birthday cakes and pumpkins every year for Jessica and Casey. He attended many horse shows, dance recitals, and ball games. He loved to watch sports, and go to brandings and rodeos.
