Robert H. Cameron III, of Fremont Hills, Missouri passed away in his home Wednesday, November 23, 2022, at the age of 77 years and 3 months. Robert, fondly known to friends and family as Bob, was born August 23, 1945, in St. Louis Missouri to Robert H. Cameron II and Joyce (Williams) Cameron. On June 9, 1972, he was united in marriage Joyce (Phillips) Cameron.  They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year.

Bob spent his childhood in Southern Illinois until his family moved to the Miller area.  He graduated from Miller High School and then went on to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Technology from Southwest Missouri State University (SMSU). Upon graduation he became a Radio Communication Representative for Motorola designing and selling radio communication equipment and systems to business and law enforcement agencies.

Bob returned to SMSU for graduate work and received a Master’s Degree in Secondary Education.  During his graduate studies he became President of the SMSU flying club which won the 1974 National Intercollegiate Flying Association Championship.

After graduation, Bob became an Industrial Arts teacher at Republic High School and later also worked as the Cooperative Occupation Education Coordinator where he retired after 25 years of service.

Bob was an avid golfer and a dedicated member of the Fremont Hills Country Club for 33 years. He was especially fond of telling friends and family “how I got a double eagle”.  He enjoyed being a skilled HAM radio operator who would love to spend the winters doing “field days” contacting other radio operators all over the hemisphere.

Bob was a believer in Jesus Christ and strong in his faith.  He is survived by his wife Joyce Cameron, son Ryan Cameron, son Steve Cameron, two brothers Scott Cameron and Joe Cameron nephews, nieces, other relatives, and friends.

    Bob was my oldest brother, friend, mentor and for the last 40 years, life coach. I just cannot say enough kind things about him, but his life speaks for itself. Bob never stopped working on trying to improve his life whether it be as a professional educator, or aviator or his passion for golf. I guess our most glorious days on the golf course came in 1993 when we went to Pebble Beach and vacationed and golfed for 6 days. I just adored Bob, was so proud of him. I’ll share one quick thing about him that might give you insight. When he graduated from college and started at Motorola he received several new company cars to drive. He drove his 1st one out to our home and I was only 11 years old, but the impression was made: “that’s what I want to do, sales and drive new company cars”. While it might not have been a great specific goal, I had an idea. Fast Forward to 1990. I met Bob in Dallas where I lived, at the Hard Rock Cafe. And I pulled up in a new Nissan Maxima with 60 miles on it. I’d just gotten it. And sales was my career, and I thank Bob for that. But he touched me in so many ways, I am gonna miss him soooo much…he was a special guy who made people around him feel loved, and took an interest in you no matter who you were. I love you, Bob, I’ll see you someday. You’re the best. IDK what I’m going to do without you, Tiger. —Scott

    Bob was one of my oldest and best friends. We worked together for 25 years at RHS and after retirement my wife and I continued our friendship. We spent several vacations at Florida and Texas to escape the cold of the Ozarks winter and when that became difficult we enjoyed eating at least once a month at local restaurants. Bob was a true Renaissance man who could talk history or fix your car. He was one of my best friends and I will miss him greatly.

    The Camerons were our neighbors across the street for many years and their son, Ryan, has been a lifelong friend with our son, Justin. We love the Cameron family and are so glad we got to spend time with them during an Independence Day celebration last July. We will miss Bob very much, as will the whole Fremont Hills neighborhood. We extend sincere condolences and prayers to the family at this time.
