The HVAC Industry Mourns The Loss of a Young Man

The HVAC industry lost a valued member of its tight-knit community too early in his career on Monday night, March 20, 2006 when Ron Cameron, 38, of West Chester, PA passed away while working on the job for his employer Delcard Associates of New Castle, DE.

Ron began his HVAC career working with his father and siblings in their family business; John H. Cameron & Sons, Inc. in Chadds Ford, PA from 1979 through 2000 first as a helper, then an installation technician, and finally as a warehouse manager and purchasing agent. Shortly after the company was sold, Ron departed to join R&D Heating and Cooling of Kennett Square, PA as an installer through late 2005 before joining Delcard to work as a commercial sheetmetal mechanic.

Ron brought an undeniable pride, passion and energy to everything he did and was known for being a hard worker with a great work ethic that could always be counted on to give 110%. He was a valued employee, caring co-worker, trusted friend, wonderful uncle and godfather, giving brother and brother-in-law, loving son, and a good man that this industry and his family and friends will miss dearly, but remember fondly.

Ron is survived by his mother Bunny Cameron of Kennett Square, PA; father, John H. Cameron, Sr. and his wife Glenda (Ron’s other mom) of Chadds Ford, PA; brother John Cameron, Jr., a salesperson with Oliver Heating & Cooling, and his wife Karen of Kennett Square, PA; brother Drew Cameron, president of HVAC Sellutions, and his wife Mary Ellen of Kennett Square, PA; and his twin sister Heather Treml, vice president of Delcard Associates, and her husband and business partner Rick of Middletown, DE; as well as several nieces and nephews.

“These Are The Days Of Our Lives”

1991 Queen album - Innuendo Words and music by Queen

Sometimes I get to feelin’
I was back in the old days - long ago
When we were kids when we were young
Thing seemed so perfect - you know?
The days were endless, we were crazy - we were young
The sun was always shinin’ - we just lived for fun
Sometimes it seems like lately - I just don’t know
The rest of my life’s been - just a show.

Those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing is true
When I look and I find I still love you.

You can’t turn back the clock you can’t turn back the tide
Ain’t that a shame?
I’d like to go back one time on a roller coaster ride
When life was just a game
No use in sitting and thinkin’ on what you did
When you can lay back and enjoy it through your kids
Sometimes it seems like lately - I just don’t know
Better sit back and go - with the flow

Cos these are the days of our lives
They’ve flown in the swiftness of time
These days are all gone now but some things remain
When I look and I find - no change

Those were the days of our lives - yeah
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing’s still true
When I look and I find, I still love you,

I still love you.

We love you dearly Ron and will miss you with every passing day, but will remember you fondly always for all the joy, happiness, laughter, love, memories and hope with which you touched each and every one of our lives.

 

Ron's love of music and attending concerts of some of the world's greatest bands (e.g. The Who; The Rolling Stones; Pink Floyd; Van Halen; Journey; Chicago; David Bowie; local favorites Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers, the Hooters, and Dynagroove; and even Live Aid) ended with him attending the Queen + Paul Rodgers "Return of the Champions Tour" with his brother Drew on Tuesday, March 14, 2006 at the Wachovia Spectrum in Philadelphia, PA during which a video montage of the life of former Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury was played to the above song, which is why the song was used for Ron's video montage during his memorial servies. The song was written and recorded during the last days of Freddie's life. Ron and Drew shared a few beers, tears, and laughs during the show hearing songs they hadn't listened to together for quite some time.

Below is the last photo taken of Ron in the 6th row at the concert along with some pictures from the show. "We had a blast, and it was the last time I saw or spoke to my brother other than leaving him a message that Saturday, when my wife and I called him during the Hall & Oates concert during their first song, and his favorite of theirs - 'Maneater'. We would always call Ron from any concert and say: 'Wish you were here, don't you?'"

Those Were The Days Of Our Lives!

We miss you brother, son, friend, uncle. The world has grown colder now that you've gone away...

“Gone Away”

Abbreviated, words and music by The Offspring

Maybe in another life
I could find you there
Pulled away before your time
I can't deal it's so unfair

And it feels like
Heaven's so far away
And it feels like
The world has grown cold

Now that you've gone away

Leaving flowers on your grave
Show that I still care
But black roses and Hail Mary's
Can't bring back what's taken from me

I reach to the sky
And call out your name
And if I could trade
I would

And it feels like
Heaven's so far away
And it stings now
The world is so cold
Now that you've gone away

I'll Save Your Soul

I reach to the sky
And call out your name
Oh please let me trade
I would

And it feels like
Heaven's so far away
And it feels like
The world has grown cold
Now that you've gone away
Gone away, gone away.
