Contributions in Memory of Jim Cameron

James Alan Cameron (Jim) along with his twin brother John Edmund Cameron was born in the Bronx, New York on April 22, 1941 to Ruth and Robert Cameron. Jimmy and Johnny were notorious for their mischievous behavior in their Bronx neighborhood during their early years to the extent they may have started a small fire once to see their dad who was a fireman with the FDNY.

Jim attended Mt. Saint Michael’s High School and graduated from Williamstown (MA) High School. Shortly after high school Jim enlisted in the United States Air Force and it was during his enlistment he met the love of his life Sonja Foss of Brooklyn, NY. On August 31, 1963 they were married at Richards Gebauer (MO) Air Force Base. Jim and Sonja went on two raise two sons Bob and Scott while Jim was employed with International Business Machines (IBM) a/k/a Iv’e Been Moved and lived primarily in the lower Hudson Valley area of New York. Jim was employed with IBM until retiring in 1994 prior to the birth of his first grandson.

Upon retirement, Jim and Sonja, moved to Havre de Grace, Maryland to be closer to their son Bob (Isabelle) and enjoyed being with their four grandsons born and raised within minutes of them. Their other son Scott settled in Albuquerque, NM with his two sons Brennan and Dane whom they adored and enjoyed seeing when they traveled East. Jim and Sonja were mainstays at numerous local rec, club and high school athletic events watching and cheering their grandsons Brian, Michael, Kyle, and Casey.

Jim was also very active in the Harford County business community serving as President of both the Havre de Grace and then Harford County Chamber of Commerce before retiring for good and transitioning into volunteering. Jim volunteered at the HdG Decoy Museum, Farmer’s Market, and Opera House and any other event he could do to promote his second hometown. Jim studied the history of HdG and loved talking to non-residents about all the little town on the bay offers. Sadly, on September 15, 2020, Sonja, the love of Jim’s life, died after a brief illness. On Thursday February 2, 2022 Jim was involved in a motor vehicle accident on the Hatem Bridge and on Tuesday February 7, Jim passed away due to complications from the accident,

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Restore Church, 15 North Earlton Road, Havre de Grace, Maryland 21078 on Saturday, March 18. 2023 at 12 NOON.
