Cameron Kenneth Wilson later known as Natasha Valentina died February 15, 2023 at age 40.
Losing a loved one is never easy. Everything about it feels unfair, unlucky, perhaps even preventable and it leaves many wondering ‘What if’ and ‘If only’. It can be even more agonizing when the death is the result of mental illness and addiction. But re-living the manner of which one has died is not the purpose of an obituary. Cameron-Natasha never wanted to be defined only by addiction or miscalculated decisions … but rather, by love given and laughs shared.
Cameron was born October 30, 1982 in Tooele, UT. As a child he loved the outdoors, fishing, family camping trips and out-singing his all female cousins and sister during fierce competitions. After graduating from Tooele High, Cameron moved to Salt Lake City and began the journey of adulthood. That journey was filled with ups and downs, as most journeys are. But during this journey of finding oneself, a huge missing piece of Cameron’s life was found - and that piece was Natasha Valentina. Cameron-Natasha was a beautiful, intelligent person, full of love. Cameron-Natasha was feisty, stubborn and outspoken and would do anything for loved ones. With a beaming smile, a sharp jawline and a strut that no runway model could touch, Cameron-Natasha left a little bit of glitter everywhere he/she went. And no matter what phase of life you knew Cameron or Natasha in, remember the laughs, remember the hugs. When you find a piece of glitter just know that Cameron-Natasha probably dropped it from up above just to say “Hello”.
Cameron-Natasha is greeted in the after life by his father Kenneth Wilson, grandfather Cecil Dougherty and aunt Donna Clowry. He leaves behind his mother Kerry Wilson and sister Marisa Wilson-Vario.
A celebration of life to be held at a future date.
