Kurt Michael Cameron was born July 26, 1966 at Antelope Memorial Hospital in Neligh NE to Donald and Marcella (Tomjack) Cameron. He was the youngest of five children and lived his life in and around Chambers NE. Kurt was known for his love of people and pets. He remembered faces, names and never hesitated in offering a quick greeting and hug.
His life was filled with love from family and community. Kurt was devoted to his farm chores, and referred to his chickens as “his girls”. He spent hours on tractors and would drive around the farm. He was his father’s “right hand” man and together they went to many sale barns, fields, and to the co-op for “news” and coffee. Kurt was a devoted son and helped both his parents remain in their home in their later years.
He was blessed with aunts, uncles and cousins and enjoyed many family celebrations – eating and dancing were his favorite means to celebrate Kurt loved rodeos, fairs and showing his sheep at the Holt Co Fair. His school years were spent at Chambers Public and his church life was shared between St Patrick’s O’Neill and St. Joseph’s Amelia. Thanks to devoted catechism teachers and Amelia families, Kurt received sacraments and was proud to be an altar server.
Kurt was known for an unconditional love for all people. He was a devoted fan of all Chambers Coyotes endeavors and received Booster of the Year in 2005. His football devotion spread to the Nebraska Cornhuskers - per Kurt, they never lost a football game, but they did get cheated out of a few victories.
Kurt lived a full and happy life. He was blessed to live in a most caring community that accepted and loved him; they kept him safe, happy and even crowned him Parade Marshall on the 4th of July.
Kurt was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents, and several aunts, uncles and cousins. He is survived by siblings Karen, Kathy, Kelly, Kay and families; 9 nieces and nephews and 10 great-nieces and nephews.
