McCamish, Robert E.*  
1952-2014 Robert E. McCamish, of West Gardiner, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, Nov. 26, 2014, at the age of 62 after receiving the warmth of his family's love. Bob was born July 15, 1952, in Melrose, MA, to Lurline S. Jacobs and Marshall E. McCamish Jr. He grew up in Wakefield, MA, before moving to China, ME, in his youth. While he was a 1970 graduate of Erskine Academy, his greatest achievement happened on a blind date December 7, 1974, when he met the love of his lifetime, Brenda D. Whitaker, who became his loving and devoted wife of over 36 years. Bob and Brenda had two children, a son, Marshall J., and daughter Kristin. Bob was very proud of the accomplishments of his children. His proudest and most well-deserved titles were "Dad," and later, "Grampy." Bob often reminisced and spoke fondly of past employments, including Air New England, the Augusta Supply Company, and the Mobil Service Center in the 1970s. But most important to him were the friends he made along the way. It was a running joke amongst his children that they could never take him anywhere without encountering someone he hadn't seen in decades whom he still knew by name. Ultimately, Bob devoted his work life to the city of Augusta, where he served as an emergency 911 dispatcher for over 27 years; a job he was well suited for thanks to his compassion and natural sense of direction. He was also a proud member of the West Gardiner Volunteer Fire Department and the Dirigo Masonic Lodge 104. It was in his later years that Bob found his true calling: sharing his love for the magic of Disney. His excitement for vacationing in Disney World was contagious, and quickly spread among family and friends, and transcended generations. Bob was predeceased by his parents, Marshall E. and Lurline S. McCamish; and brother-in-law Bill Weymouth. He is survived by his wife, Brenda D. (Whitaker) McCamish, of West Gardiner; their son, Marshall J. McCamish, and his wife, Alana, and their children, of Gardiner; and daughter Kristin M. McCamish, of West Gardiner. "Bobby" is fondly remembered and survived by his three sisters, Marsha Audet and husband Bob, of Palermo, Sharon Parenteau and husband Dennis, of Windsor, and Kathy Weymouth, of Palermo; a brother, Wayne McCamish, and wife Terry, of Augusta; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Service will be held this Saturday, November 29, at Staples Funeral Home in Gardiner. Visiting hours will begin at 10 a.m., with a celebration of life to start at 11:30 a.m. Bob will then be sent off for his next Disney vacation, so please come dressed appropriately in your favorite vacation apparel to join in. In lieu of flowers, please contribute to the Free ME from Lung Cancer ( http://www.freemefromlungcancer.org/ ), American Cancer Society, or Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care.
