Cameron Edward Perry

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

Cameron Edward Perry, 18, of Sedro Woolley passed away unexpectedly on Friday, August 4, 2017 in Oak Harbor, Washington.

Cameron was born on October 30, 1998 to Kirstin and James Perry of Cedarville, CA. Cameron spent his childhood and early adolescence on the family ranch in Cedarville, California with his grandma Vida and grandpa Bob. He also spent time living with his great aunt Bonnie. In early 2014 Cameron moved to Washington and finally arrived in Sedro Woolley in December 2014.

Cameron graduated from Sedro Woolley High School in June, 2017. Although he had thought obtaining his high school diploma was next to impossible when he moved to Sedro Woolley, Cameron worked hard, set goals and achieved what he had once thought was impossible. Cameron participated in track and field and was a part of the wrestling team his senior year. Cameron gained a real zest for life after being in Sedro Woolley for a short time. His teachers often commented what a pleasure he was to have in their class and was always willing to help. He had an infectious smile and attitude day after day.

Cameron had been accepted to attend the fall quarter at Skagit Valley College and had plans to become a mechanical engineer.

Cameron was loved and survived by many family and friends. Of those include siblings, Nathan Perry, Johny Perry, Tyrese Franklin and Alexis Sanchez. A village of caregivers and family loved ones including Adrianne Franklin, Kirstin Berry, James Perry, Bonnie Belding, Connie Cole, Joyce Franklin, Savanna Orcutt, Merep Ngiralmou, Brenda Michael, Aidan Franklin, Susanna Alway, Sharon McMahan, Clayton Franklin, David Sanchez and close friends Brenna Palmer-Perry, Dylan Taylor, Moriah Johnson and Orabell Howland.

Cameron was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Vida and Robert “Bob” Perry.

Cameron will be laid to rest with his grandparents in Cedarville, California.

A viewing, remembrance and service will be held from 2pm – 5pm, Thursday, August 10, 2017 at Lemley Chapel. A brief service will begin at 3:30pm. Arrangements are under the care of Lemley Chapel, Sedro Woolley. Share your memories of Cameron and sign the online guest register

    My heart is so heavy with this tragic loss. Cameron was one of the nicest young men I know. Even when he wasn’t having the best day I would get a smile and a big hug. He always had nothing but positivity in him and had promised to come and visit me at the high school from time to time. I loved him and will miss him.

  • Kyla Marsh

    Cameron was one of my best friends along with orabell. I remember when we all would go to the drama room and eat lunch, Cameron always made lunch a joyful time. I remember telling my sister about how lunch was my favorite part of the day, some days were full of laughter. Cam made sure no one was unhappy he would put them first, even if he was un happy. Cam could put a smile on anyone’s face….. I already miss him so much R.I.P. Cameron ?

  • Erica Baldridge

    Cam you were such an awesome kid. I remember taking you and Nate to the swimming pool at Northpoint when you lived in Mesa, AZ. You were very little then, but you were always the easiest kid to be around. You always had that big contagiuos smile and never caused a lot of trouble. I remember spending the summers on the family farm in Cedarville as you grew older. Watching you grow into such a caring, loving boy. I never knew you to throw fits or tantrums, you just rolled with punches. I know life was not always easy for you, but you never let it rain on your parade. You did your best to enjoy every moment. You are loved by so many people and you touched so many lives. Kiss our loved ones in heaven for me, I will see you on the other side cousin. I love you Cam, you will be in our hearts forever.

    This comes as such a shock to me. Cameron had a very bright future. I enjoyed working with Cameron in my woodworking class. He had a positive attitude, a can-do spirit and an enthusiasm and developed a talent for working with his hands. He was a kind, respectful, and always willing to lend a hand. I will miss his infectious smile.

  • Aryana Hearn

    Cameron was one of my first friends at the high school. He made me feel like I was apart of something all the time, he always tried to include me and always stuck up for me. He pushed me to be a better person, he never let me quit. I know that he will be with us all and that this isn’t a final goodbye. Just a till next time . Heaven needed a hero. ?❤️

    Cameron was such a light. I will never forget his gigantic smile or his infectious laugh. I met him through youth group and I thank God that He made Cameron.

    I don’t really know what to say. He was amazing. He became my best friend. He was always there for me. No matter the time. He was easy for me to talk to. He was really sweet. I can’t believe he’s gone. I will never forget the times he was there for me. My favorite memories of him we’re when we were in ASL together giving our teacher Gavin heart attacks. Cam will never be forgotten because he made to many memories with everyone.
