It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Cam Smith.  He was the beloved husband of Yvonne (nee Hughes) of 64 years.  Cam was a member of the Richmond Hill Rotary Club for 55 Years, who exemplified the Rotary motto of “Service above Self”.
He was well known in the community for his work with the Boy Scouts, the Arena Board, the Library Board, the United Way and was Chair of the Actifest Festival (Ontario Senior Games) when it was held in Richmond Hill.  Cam was the long-time Manager for Bank of Nova Scotia's Richmond Hill branch at Yonge and Lorne Streets.  After his retirement, he continued working part-time for Magna International.
As a Rotarian, Cam was a Past President, a long term treasurer and Board member. He participated fully in most club projects and
along with his wife Yvonne, administered the Rotary scholarship program for local high schools for many years. He was recently
received, the first ever, life achievement award from the Richmond Hill Club for outstanding service to Rotary.
During the first Richmond Hill Rotary Club meeting following the death of Cam, the Club held a moment of silence in his memory.
When the silence ended, members of the Club spontaneously paid tribute to Cam.  Some members recalled how Cam always kept his cool, no matter the situation, others remarked on his love of sports, and others on his genuine interest in them and their families. Still others remembered that Cam was always involved in Club Activities, always ready to help and always there when needed Cam will be sadly missed.
As an expression of sympathy and in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Richmond Hill Rotary Club Foundation (mail to Richmond Hill Rotary Club, PO Box 30589, 10660 Yonge Street, Richmond Hill, ON, L4C3C9, or to the Richmond Hill United Church.
