Cameron L. Madison, age 12, of Otsego, MI Cameron Lee Madison came into the world on the cold, white winter's morning of December 27th, 2004. He was the third born child to bless his loving mother and father, Patrica Wheeler and Larry Madison, following his older brother and sister, Devonte and Kiersten. In addition to his immediate family, many grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends were instantly in love with the beautiful baby boy with the soft, curly hair. Cameron was followed by 3 more siblings, Aden, Adalynn and Adrian who he enjoyed both protecting and teasing almost equally. As he grew, his personality, interests and obvious talents quickly developed. Cameron had a gentle spirit, yet was impressively athletic with never ending energy. He was a fast running, high jumping, skilled athlete. He excelled in every sport with a ball, and most without. Most recently playing as #16 for the Otsego Bulldogs Middle School Rocket Football team. He was also a wrestler and was coached by his step-father, Adam Campbell over the years. His father, Larry Madison, was proudly there to watch and congratulate his son on all of his efforts. When not practicing or playing competitively, Cameron was always surrounded by a group of friends, and enjoyed being a part of the "Jeffy Crew" also known as the "Flip Squad," where he could do impressive flips and tricks that would leave those watching in disbelief. Even though he was a force to be reckoned with in any arena of play, Cameron loved nature and being covered in dirt. He enjoyed catching frogs, fishing, hiking and anything that involved spending time outdoors with his family.Cameron will be remembered for his gentle eyes, sly Mona Lisa like smirk when he was planning something, and the way he could make people laugh out loud. When he really smiled, it genuinely came from somewhere so deep within, he couldn't contain it, and the joy that spilled out of him was infectious. He loved to play a good joke, because in the end, he could have the whole room laughing, and bringing joy to his family and friends was what he really loved to do, besides loving them. Oh, how Cameron was a lover. He may have been the fastest on the field, but he could also be found enjoying a good cuddle on the couch with his mama. Cameron taught those who knew him how to love in ways they hadn't before, and his big heart and easy going attitude are to be admired and emulated. Though those he left behind feel there were not enough days in his life, they know that his days were full of life. The joy he brought to everyone who knew him will live on forever in the broken hearts of his parents, gentle eyes of his grandparents, smiles and laughter of his siblings, cousins and friends and the memories held by all who knew him. He was a gift of love from Heaven to the world, and will be greatly missed. Cameron passed away unexpectedly October 30, 2017 at his home in Otsego.
