Cameron Dean RUSK

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Cam Rusk on October 21, 2022.

Cam is predeceased  by his mother Jane Rusk his brother Brad (Valerie)Rusk niece and nephew Rebekah & Gabriel Rusk & his cherished dog Zuza aka the May May .

He is survived by  his daughter  Bella Rusk , his best friend Lauren Thomson Rusk  his brother Greg (Tamie) Rusk, nieces Britney (Kyle ) Buchner-Rusk, Alysha (Chaydon) Crocker-Rusk, great nephew Audrik, great niece Carlana, sister Kerry Laurene, many cherished cousins, aunts, uncles, friends, coworkers & extended family.

Cam was the sweetest guy. He was happiest in nature. When he wasn’t working hard, he’d be trolling on a lake or sitting along a rivers edge listening to tunes with a fishing line in the water. He was a loving father to his daughter “B” he gave her a love of nature, a kind heart, love of good food, movies, sports… (go Packers), music, & great conversation. She’s his whole heart.

He was a teacher of life, resilience, a fighter, and a gift to all who knew and loved him. He cooked the best damn turkey you’ve ever had. He was brave and giving and so funny. He gave the best hugs. He was a hero to us.

He will be missed immeasurably.  To our sweet Cam RIP & rock on. We will find you in the silent snow falls your loved so much, the warmth of the sun on our faces, fish jumping, hawks soaring, and calm waters.  

“So close, no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No, nothing else matters” – James Hetfield

A private family celebration of life will be held this spring.

    Ps. Would like to share this quote below by Helen Keller. Hope it helps cope with some of the pain and grief.

    “What we once
    enjoyed and deeply
    loved we can never
    lose, for all that
    we love deeply
    becomes part
    of us.”

    Gone too soon. To Lauren, Bella and family, my deepest condolences.
    I have known Cam since ‘the girls’ preschool days. The girls have since grown and graduated, but still very much a part of each other’s lives. During these years I have gotten to know Cam through soccer, school, birthday parties, graduations, and rides for girls that needed to go to where girls need to go. Through this I saw a devoted father, joyful friend and kind soul. Always quick to smile, offer a ride, chat and share a tale. Bella is truly his heart. Blessed for having known him, I cannot express my deep sadness. His laughter, spirit and love for all that was right in this world will be missed.

  21. Denise Syrnyk

    So sorry for your loss…

  22. Joanne Linsey
