District Governor Ken Krebs announced the passing of Past District Governor Campbell "Cam" King (2004 - 2005). Cam passed away Sunday March 13 th 2016 after a lengthy illness. Our condolences go out to his wife and fellow Rotarian Myrna and the entire King family.
The following is a summary of Cam’s involvement with Rotary from the World Peace partners website:
Cam started out as teacher. Then he joined the Canadian Red Cross for 29 years, (10 years as the Division’s Water Safety Director, 2 years as Assistant Commissioner and the last 17 of those as the Commissioner (Executive Director) for the Manitoba Division.) After that, he spent 10 years developing and coordinating the emergency management programme for the 62 First Nation communities in Manitoba.  He was told that it is still unique in North America. (See excerpt from The Rotarian 1997)
King was a Certified Association Executive (now Retired). His Rotary classification is “Emergency Preparedness”. He is Paul Harris Fellow and a Benefactor. He was the District 5550 Centennial Governor and has served as one of the Rotary International President’s Representatives in 2008.

The latter is a District initiative which will bring Rotarians and youth from around the world to Winnipeg to go through the first World’s Museum totally dedicated to Human Rights.
