Kitchener Rangers Mourn the Loss of Don Cameron
It is with deep sadness that the Kitchener Rangers share news of the passing of Don Cameron on Thursday after a brief illness.
Cameron, the former play-by-play radio voice of the team, had been a part of over 4,000 broadcasts and the Rangers primary play-by-play voice for 50 seasons.
Affectionately known by many listeners as simply "The Legend", Cameron began covering the team as its radio play-by-play broadcaster during the team's inaugural season in 1963. He called games every season until 2015-16, with the exception of two - 1974-75 and 1975-76 - when the rights were owned by a competitor. During those two seasons, Cameron still reported on the team.
Even after he stepped away from the team prior to the 2015-16 campaign, he still came back to The Aud and put the headset back on for the odd game; most recently Game 6 of the Western Conference Final vs. the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.
That is always a great sight to see on the media sign-in sheet! #TheLegend has the call of Game 6 Cameron passed away on Thursday after a brief illness.
