Cameron Scott Tobon, 20 years old, passed away on Sunday, October 8, 2017. Cameron was born on October 7, 1997 in Salt Lake City to parents Rashelle Butcher and Victor Tobon. He was kind, compassionate and open-hearted. Remembered especially for his sense of humor, big beautiful smile, and infectious laugh. He was a loyal friend, brother, and son. Intelligent and thoughtful, he was determined to make a difference in the world. Most recently, Cameron had been working as a 911 dispatcher at the Salt Lake Valley Emergency Communications Center with the goal to enter Law Enforcement as a career. He loved music and was a talented, self-taught musician who could often be found singing, writing songs, and strumming his ukulele. He had a knack for bringing a smile to the faces of everyone around him. Most importantly, Cameron was a loving and devoted father whose proudest moment in life was the day his daughter Rashelle was born.

He is survived by his precious 2-month-old daughter, Rashelle Renée Tobon and Jade Parker, his parents Rashelle and Victor, older brothers Morgan Butcher (spouse Kami and niece Ellie), DeMarco Romero, Victor Alfonso Tobon, younger brother Jordan Tobon, younger sister Jacqueline Tobon, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins on both sides of the family. He was loved and cherished by many and will never be forgotten.
