Cameron Archibald Macdonald, 82, passed away on November 25, 2017 at his home in Maitland, Florida. He was born in Glen Cove, Long Island, New York on December 25, 1934, the only child of Archie Macdonald and Katherine MacIntosh Macdonald. Cameron graduated high school in Wellington, New Zealand; he then went on to obtain his Bachelor's Degree from Hofstra as well as his Master's Degree from Northeastern. In 1963 Cam and his family moved to the Central Florida area. Once in Florida, Cameron began working for Martin Marietta where he was employed for over 25 years. During his time with the company, Cameron had the opportunity to work with NASA on the Apollo Space Program.

In his free time, Cam enjoyed traveling, playing golf, fishing, boating, walking, watching the Orlando Magic play and above all enjoyed spending time with his family. He was an intelligent and kind man who was known for his lovable and funny personality. In lieu of flowers, Cam would want you to take every opportunity to spend time with the one's you love.

Bolton (Michael), his granddaughter Elizabeth Anne Pelletier and step-grandchildren Teri B. Glass and Cyndi C. Cushman (Scott). Cam also leaves behind his brother-in-law Philip J. Mallon (Eileen B.) along with their family and many friends who will miss him dearly.
