Obituary

Passed away peacefully at Mackenzie Health Richmond Hill Hospital on Saturday, June 20th in his 93rd year after a short illness. Beloved husband of Yvonne (nee Hughes) of 64 years. Loving father of Brian (Bonnie) and Michael. Special family friend to Terri-Lyn Zaremsky. Cherished grandfather to Andrew, Trevor and Danika. Dear brother to Erwin, predeceased of Glace Bay, NS and sister Jennie (Anderson), also predeceased of Truro, NS. Fondly remembered by his nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and great-great nieces and nephews.
Cam was born in Port Morien, NS, later moving to Glace Bay at a young age. At the age of 18 he joined the Bank of Nova Scotia working as a courier delivering bank drafts. He quickly moved into a teller position and then an assistant accountant. He was transferred to Hamilton, Ontario in 1949 and throughout the next several years held various positions in Hamilton, Acton and Sarnia branches. In 1960 he opened a new branch in Hamilton and became their new Bank Manager. In 1962 he was moved to Richmond Hill as Bank Manager at Yonge and Lorne Streets where he remained until he retired in 1988. Following his bank retirement he worked part time as a consultant at Magna International headquarters in Aurora for 15 years when he retired permanently. Cam has held numerous positions throughout his life helping in his Town of Richmond Hill including the Boy Scouts Association of York Region, Library Board member for 22 years, member of the Arena Board for over 25 years and was a very active member of the York Central Hospital Foundation Board for 20 years holding positions as Chair and Past Chair. In 1996 he headed up the United Way Campaign for York Region, and was also the Chair of Richmond Hill’s Actifest festival. Cam was also instrumental in starting up the Big Brothers organization in Richmond Hill. He has been a member of the Richmond Hill Rotary Club from 1965 to present and only two weeks ago received recognition from the Rotary Club for his 55 years of service. He was also involved in Richmond Hill minor hockey, both as a coach and sponsor.
Special thanks to Dr. John Dawson, Dr. Sugai, and his many other specialists. Thanks are also extended to the Central LHIN and the health care professionals of SRT for their care over the past few months.
As an expression of sympathy and in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Richmond Hill Rotary Charitable Foundation (mail to Richmond Hill Rotary Club, PO Box 30568, 10660 Yonge Street, Richmond Hill, ON L4C 3C9) or to the Richmond Hill United Church.

Cam Smith was a gentleman and was always ready to help those in need. One time, my dad's paycheck bounced and of course with five children at home and my mother did not work outside the home until much later, Mr. Smith, after hearing what happened, waived all of the fees so that any other cheques that had been written would go through. My mom always spoke of him with the highest regard for helping her like that. It is the one story that warms my heart. To the Smith family, your father was truly an icon in Richmond Hill and he will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this very difficult time.

So sad to read of Cam's passing...he was a fine gentleman and a real attribute to his community...I worked with him on many Richmond Hill events and was always honoured when he asked me to join him...I remember him telling me that as the bank manager at the TRH Bank of Nova Scotia he gave a young whipper snapper named Frank Stronach his first business loan, and the rest was history...Cam made a difference and he loved his family, his town and was devoted to making Richmond Hill a better place for all its residents. 'In the rose we flourish'...RIP, you have earned it.
