BRIAN MITCHEL CAMERON
June 18, 1949 - June 8, 2022
Brian Cameron of East St. Paul passed away peacefully at the age of 72 at St. Boniface Hospital. He was the second of three children, born on June 18, 1949, to Douglas Cameron and Anne (nee Brokenshire) in the town of Melita, Manitoba.
Brian enjoyed being a part of Scouts and eventually rose to the highest honour of Queen Scout. He was highly involved in high school sports and was a great hockey player. He was high school president in his final year at Melita Collegiate where he graduated in 1967. Brian began working right out of high school for Wawanesa Insurance. He left to work with his father, Douglas, in Melita selling Muttart Manufactured Homes. Brian then went on to work in the movie theatre business starting as assistant manager at the Gaiety Theatre in Winnipeg, until he received his final promotion as District Supervisor for Famous Players for Manitoba and Saskatchewan. While expanding his career he also became manager of the St. James Canadians Hockey Club. In 1986, Brian purchased the Tyndall Motor Hotel and managed it successfully until his passing.
He leaves to mourn his son Craig (Haley), siblings, Dallas (Bryan), John (Shelley) along with many nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. Brian was predeceased by his loving wife Glenda (nee Tuttle) and parents.
Brian was a proud and beloved father and one of his proudest moments was being able to see his son become a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Brian could often be found cheering for his beloved Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Winnipeg Jets and Canadian Curlers. Brian was a kind man and touched the lives of many people in his community and will always be remembered and thoroughly missed.
The family would like to thank the paramedics, nurses, and doctors at St. Boniface Hospital.
A private family service will be held.
Should family and friends so desire, please consider remembering Brian with a donation to the Canadian Kidney Foundation or CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
Many fond memories of fun times and conversations with Brian at the Tyndall Hotel. Through these conversations I know how proud he was of Craig's accomplishments; in later years our kids were the topic of most of our conversations. I remember when Craig was born; I collected donations from the patrons and we gifted Brian with a battery operated swing for Craig. I was touched when Brian gifted it back to me when my first child was born. Condolences to the family. - Posted by: Karen (Patron) on: Jun 20, 2022
I am so sad to hear of the death of my cousin, Brian. I remember him as a very kind sweet young man in Melita. Although our paths seldom crossed I heard about his son and what a good father Brian was. I fondly remember family dinners with Our Uncle Dough and Aunt Anne and family growing up in Melita.

Craig, so sorry to hear about your dad's passing, I'm sure your Dad was very proud that you in becoming a RCMP constable. Your Dad and myself crossed paths sometime in the hockey world as I was also involved in hockey. Cherish the memories you had. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
