Fred Cameron went to be with the Lord on Saturday, the 23rd of August 2014, amid the comfort and love of his family and close friends.

A man of tremendous faith and integrity, a lawyer by profession and a musician at heart, Fred lived a successful yet humble life serving his clients, his church and his alma mater, Baylor University.

Born on the 6th of March 1938, in Atlanta, Texas, Fred was the only child of William Fred Cameron III and Mary Sue Dupree Cameron. Fred was valedictorian of his senior class at Atlanta High School, played saxophone in the marching band and was recently honored as a Distinguished Alumnus of AHS.

Fred received his Bachelor’s degree from Baylor University in 1960 and his Juris Doctor from Baylor Law School in 1962. In his years at Baylor he was a member of Alpha Kappa Psi, Omicron Delta Kappa and Phi Alpha Delta law fraternity and president of the Baylor Chamber of Commerce fraternity. He was named to Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities.

He began his legal career as Attorney Advisor for the U.S. Tax Court in Washington, D.C., under Honorable Judge Howard Dawson.

Two years later Fred Cameron came to Houston to join the first and only law firm in his distinguished career, starting in 1964, at Fulbright, Crooker, Freeman, Bates and Jaworski, where he later co-chaired the Trusts & Estates Section. He retired as a partner of Fulbright & Jaworski, now Norton-Rose-Fulbright.

During his legal career, Fred Cameron served as Chair of the Real Estate, Probate, and Trust Section for the State Bar of Texas and President of the Houston Estate and Financial Forum. He was a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC) and was credentialed by Woodward & White among the Best Lawyers in America.

Outside of his law practice Fred served Baylor University as Chairman of the Board of Regents, President of the Development Board and President of the Baylor Law Alumni Association.

After retiring Fred received honors as recipient of the W.R. White Meritorious Service Award and the James Huckins Medallion for his many years of service, gifts and scholarships to Baylor University. Along with his wife, Princess, he was bestowed Baylor University’s highest honor, the Founders Medallion, in 2009.

Music was Fred’s passion and he took great joy in singing and playing the piano. At Tallowood Baptist Church in Houston he was boys’ choir director, choir tenor, and vocal soloist as well as teacher, deacon and chairman of multiple committees. He also participated in the Night Court musical productions by the Houston Bar Association and the Junior Women’s Forum Musicals and was soloist for the National Anthem at an Astros baseball game.

Fred rarely missed an opportunity to spend time with his family. He cherished relaxing at the family beach house in Galveston, taking ski trips to Colorado and Utah, going on vacations and, as an avid fan and supporter of Baylor athletics, attending Baylor sports events.

Fred Cameron is dearly loved and will be greatly missed by his family: wife of 54 years, Princess Mike Cameron; son, Kirk and his wife, Jeanette and their children, Kaeden and Kiera; son, Keith and his wife, Michelle and their children, Sutton and Sloane; granddaughter, Kyrie and her mother. Jan. He is predeceased by his son Kenneth William “Kenny”.

Friends are cordially invited to gather and share remembrances of Mr. Cameron from five o’clock in the afternoon until seven o’clock in the evening on Wednesday, the 27th of August, at Tallowood Baptist Church in the Fireplace Room, 555 Tallowood Road in Houston.

A memorial service is to be conducted at two o’clock in the afternoon on Thursday, the 28th of August, in the Worship Center of Tallowood Baptist Church. Immediately following, all are invited to greet the family during a reception to be held at the church.

Prior to the memorial service, the family will have gathered for a private interment at Memorial Oaks Cemetery in Houston.

In lieu of customary remembrances, memorial contributions may be directed to Tallowood Baptist Church, 555 Tallowood Rd., Houston, TX, 77024; The Fred and Princess Cameron Endowed Scholarship in Law or the Fred and Princess Cameron Endowed Scholarship in Music. c/o Baylor University, One Bear Place, #97026, Waco, TX, 76798; or the Fred Cameron Scholarship Fund, c/o Baylor College of Medicine Office of Philanthropy, MSC #800, P.O.

Psalm 100:2
