Cameron Todd Rost

November 10, 1988 — May 9, 2024

Cameron Todd Rost, a loving son, father sibling and friend to many, was called home to be with the Lord on May 9, 2024 in Sequim WA, where he had recently moved to be closer to his two sons. He was 35 years old. Cameron was born on November 11, 1988 to his parents Mark and Erin Rost. He was born and raised in Spokane, WA and lived for a short time in Wenatchee, WA with his mom, stepdad and little brother as well.

Cameron was a laid back, free spirited, fun-loving kid who enjoyed water sports, basketball, skateboarding, snowboarding and was active in soccer for many years, having his dad as his coach. He was a bright articulate student, a Chase Youth Award recipient and an avid reader up until the day he left this earth. In Spokane, He attended Spokane Lutheran School, Linwood and Bemis Elementary, Shaw Middle School and Rogers High school where he was active in ROTC. Cameron always had a heart for God and attended Pilgrim Lutheran Church when he was little, was a baptized member of Crossover Baptist Church for several of his childhood years and had recently reconnected with his faith towards the end of his life and was highly involved with his church family at Cornerstone Baptist Temple. In his junior year, He developed a severe life-threatening case of Osteomyelitis which nearly took his life. He required emergency surgeries; lengthy hospital stays and ongoing treatments for the better part of the next year. Unfortunately, He never returned fully to high school and these medical events led to an addiction that he struggled with on and off for years to come. He went on to accomplished his GED and attended Job Corp in Curlew WA and completed his trade certification for Masonry/Construction and began working in the field. He was a solid hard worker. He eventually met and fell in love with Kaylla Aubree Neilsen. They moved to Colorado together and Kansas for a short time but ultimately, they returned to Washington. Sadly, the relationship did not last but they produced two beautiful sons together who became their daddy’s pride and joy. 

He was a good dad who loved his sons fiercely and wanted nothing more than to build a stable life for them. Cameron was a beautiful soul that shined brightly. He had a heart for the broken, the struggling or anyone who had lost their way. His dream was to one day start his own comprehensive addiction/treatment program for the whole person, to help guide others to overcome the traumas and tribulations he himself had experienced. He was funny and had great wit, always had a comeback that left others belly laughing or rolling their eyes. He was kind, compassionate and never lost his “quirky silly kid side.” Children and animals gravitated towards him. He was always rescuing and bringing home a stray dog or animal, even into adulthood. He had a larger-than-life personality that commanded attention when he walked in a room and was easy to talk to and even easier to love. A favorite saying of his was, “Go big or go home.” And he embraced that fearlessness with ease. If you needed someone to try something out with you, Cam was your guy. 

His passions were working out, his boys and anything Seahawks, as he was an avid football fan. He was also a huge “momma’s boy” and had no problem sharing it with the world. He always told his girlfriends, “My mom is my best friend and the woman I trust the most, if she doesn’t like you, we can’t date.” Cameron was dearly loved by his family and friends and will be forever missed. His legacy will live on in our hearts and through his two precious boys
