UXBRIDGE: It was with tremendous sadness the Uxbridge Bruins recently announced the passing of their longtime club president, Cam Stewart, at the age of 78. Cam passed away peacefully, on the afternoon of Tuesday, June 4th, with his wife, Alice, and their family by his side.

Cam Stewart was a pillar of the Uxbridge community, dedicating much of his life to making it a better place. Known for his kindness and generosity, Cam’s commitment to the Bruins was unwavering. Every Friday night, he could be found at the Bear Den gate, warmly welcoming fans and ensuring everything ran smoothly. His presence at the rink was a steadying force and he relished the excitement of game nights, engaging with fans and friends alike.

Beyond his local impact, Cam was a fierce advocate for the PJHL, working tirelessly to promote and develop junior hockey, across Ontario. His efforts were instrumental in growing the sport and providing opportunities for young athletes. He was a particularly strong advocate for players to enter into trades and could cite several successful examples from his decades of volunteer work with the Bruins.

“He was a true gentleman, wonderful volunteer, and a supporter of his community. Cam will certainly be missed,” commented, former Uxbridge Mayor, Gerri Lynn O’Connor.

Away from the rink, Cam was a devoted family man and lifelong farmer. He played hockey and baseball for many years, coaching his children's teams and later enjoying time with his grandchildren. Cam had a long career at Bell Canada before starting his own consulting company, focused on driver and forklift training. He was also deeply involved in his community, serving as: Chairman of the Goodwood Cemetery Board; an active church member; and a regular participant in community fairs, with his prized goats and loving wife.

“I had the pleasure of many hockey conversations with Cam but equally as many goat conversations,” Lucan Irish President and GM, Sandra Neubauer explained. “He was such an honourable and hardworking person.”

Cam’s passing leaves a profound void in the hearts of his family, the Bruins organization, and the entire Uxbridge community. His spirit, hard work, and legacy will continue to inspire and influence future generations. The Uxbridge Bruins and their supporters will fondly remember Cam Stewart and honour his contributions for years to come, ensuring his legacy lives on.
