Mr. Cameron Lee Blackwell
April 23, 1996 – July 27, 2014
Cameron was a
shooting star that
was here only for a
moment before he
cruised to heaven.
His smile, blue eyes,
and charm lit up the
room wherever he
went. May his
bright light shine
forever and always
be remembered. He
was just 18 years
old and graduated
from Pioneer High School in Carson City, Nevada.
He lived his life as he wanted, on his terms,
having fun and taking adventures. He pushed
it to the limit no matter what he was doing, he
lived on the edge. Cameron was involved in a
single car accident on his way moving to
Phoenix, Arizona with his friends. He was
about to start the next chapter in his life.
Cameron has countless friends all over especially
in Nevada, Arizona, California, and Mississippi.
He never met a stranger and would
do anything for a friend.
He leaves behind a loving family including
his parents, Erik and Audra Blackwell; his lil
sis, Kayla Rose; grandparents, Wesley and
Janice Blackwell, and Raymond and Polly
Price; many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Cameron’s family requests in lieu of flowers,
