It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing of Phillip Cameron Jr., who departed from us on the 16th of November, 2023. Born on the 2nd of May, 1953, in Athol, Phillip's life was one of dedication and resilience.
Phillip, affectionately known as "Bug eyes" was a proud graduate of Narragansett High School, class of 1971, and a courageous SP4 in the U.S. Army during Vietnam. Post his service, he found his calling in construction, where he worked as a laborer until his retirement.
He was a man of strong character and diverse interests, from his love for reading to his passion for fishing and camping. He was an ardent fan of the New York Jets and the New York Yankees and harbored a special affection for Harley Davidson motorcycles. His dedication extended to the North Quabbin Lodge of the Free and Accepted Masons in Athol, where he was a respected member for 48 years.
Phillip is survived by his father, Phillip Sr; son, Phillip Cameron; two grandchildren: his siblings Hugh, Bernard, Shawn, Brian, Patricia Woodard, Barbara Stanfield, Pamela Haley, Chris Tucci, and Mary Petrie. He joins his beloved mother, Bernice Cameron, who preceded him in death.
