Ernest Cameron Obituary

Ernest Joseph Cameron, born March 2, 1951, a lifelong resident of Kiln, Mississippi passed away peacefully on March 28, 2024 at home surrounded by the love of his family. His 73 years were marked by a deep passion for life and generosity that touched everyone he met. His unwavering faith guided him through life, and those who knew Ernest will remember a man rich in kindness, eager to lend a helping hand. He never hesitated to help those in need. From working on water pumps for family and friends to trying to feed any and all who entered his home, Ernest Cameron's legacy of love and dedication to his community and family will remain a source of inspiration long after his departure.

Ernest had a love for films including martial arts and westerns. He enjoyed movie dates with his wife ranging from Fast and Furious to Magic Mike. He particularly cherished spending time on his porch visiting with family and friends.

Ernest found joy in his work, from dedicating many years as a skilled pipe-fitter at Ingall’s to serving the community through the Forestry Service and finally as a heavy machine operator for Hancock County.
