Cameron Waters Biography
Who is Cameron Waters?
Cameron Waters, 33, was “in his motorcycle-riding happy place” in Big Desert, a rural town more than 450km west of Melbourne’s central business district, on the border with South Australia, when he was involved in the incident.
Emergency services were called to Murrayville-Nhill Road near the Brushcutters Track just before 4:30 p.m. m. Friday following reports that Waters had collided with a car.
Mr. Waters, of Kilsyth, died on the spot.
Longtime friend Lisa Tisuno described the young father as the “calmest human to ever walk the earth” with a “lazy” demeanor on a GoFundMe page on Monday.
“Our hearts are broken by the tragic events that claimed the life of Cameron Waters,” Ms Tisuno wrote.
Ms Tisuno explained that the fund, called ‘Keep Cam’s Dream Alive’, was set up to help finish building the family’s country home and support her partner of 14 years, Natalie Upjohn, their son Tommy, four, and her two-year-old daughter, Billie.
“Cam was in his happy place of riding a motorcycle when he tragically lost his life,” Ms Tisuno wrote.
Cam’s dream was for her children to live in her half-finished farmhouse.
“Some of the funds will be used to finish her dream so the kids and Nat can create memories exactly where Cam wanted them to be created.”
“This GoFundMe is for anyone who wants to support to ease some financial strain, even though it’s not expected.”
Friends of Mr Waters and Mrs Upjohn said the young father was “in his happy place of riding a motorcycle” when he lost his life.
The remaining funds are earmarked for Tommy and Billie’s education, as Mr. Waters and Mrs. Upjohn, who teach at a nearby school, made their children’s education a top priority.
The fund has received 145 donations totaling $20,355 and hopes to raise $50,000.
Mr. Walters’ devastated parents, Bruce and Johanne, along with their siblings and their wives, have vowed to keep their son’s memory alive.
An investigation into the exact cause of the accident is ongoing.
Police confirmed the driver of the car was uninjured and has been identified as a 32-year-old man from Carina.
