Kameron P. Mason “Kam” – June 6, 2014


Dansville/Boca Raton, FL: Kameron P. Mason, born September 28, 1952 in Batavia, New York passed away on June 6, 2014, in Boca Raton, Florida where he had happily made his home for the last fourteen years of his life and was intimately invested in the lives of his daughter Jennine and her two boys, Joseph and Anthony Fabiani, to whom he was affectionately known as “Bapa”.

Kam lived most of his early years on Conesus Lake where he was something of a daredevil for water sports and anything else involving speed or risk including an early career driving pace horses in Batavia and Buffalo. Ever the showman, he reveled in driving racecar #23 using the moniker, “The Undertaker”. He grew up hunting and fishing in the hills of Western New York with his father, Nelson and brother, Kirk. He passed along this love of the outdoors to his son Kevin and both grandsons.

Kam attended Livonia Central School and then pursued a lifetime desire to become a funeral director when he attended Simmons School of Embalming and Mortuary Science in Syracuse, NY; apprenticed at Gormley Funeral home in Phoenicia, NY and went on to become part owner of John W. Martin Funeral Home in Mt. Morris and then Chamberlin Funeral Home in Dansville, NY with long-time friend and partner Kevin Dougherty. He often remarked that he was privileged to have loved the work that he did including the grief counseling that he felt was inherently necessary for families in times of loss. Kam was a proud Rotarian with connections in both Mt. Morris and Dansville where he and his former wife Sue (Scardilla) Vernam were enthusiastically and civically involved and where they raised their two children Kevin and Jennine.

Kam will long be remembered for his raucous gift of humor, his fearless sense of adventure and his adherence to living life on his own terms without apology. For all who loved him, the world will be a little less colorful and exciting without him. He is predeceased by parents, Nelson and Barbara Mason and brother Kevin. Surviving family include: Jennine (Mason) Fabiani and grandsons Joseph and Anthony of Boca Raton, Florida; son Kevin Mason of Rochester; brother Kirk (Danuta) Mason of Dunedin Florida; Kathie (Mason) Briggs and her children Kiersten and Nicholas King, of Syracuse; Mason and Proctor cousins in the US and Canada and close friends in Dansville, Livonia and Mt. Morris.

The family would like to extend personal and sincere thanks to Kevin and Deanna Dougherty, Phil Saunders, Rob Waltman and Sharon K. Hartman, Roger Gray, Tom and Joanie Wamp, Bernie McIntee, Miguel Fabiani and Pablo Narvaez for their intense loyalty and support to Kam in his last months as he lost a hard fought battle to cancer.

Calling hours will be held Friday, June 13th, from 4 to 7 PM at the Kevin W. Dougherty Funeral Home, 21 Big Tree Street, Rte 15 & 20A, Livonia, NY. Friends and family are invited to attend Kam’s Funeral Mass at St. Mary’s Church, 40 Elizabeth Street, Dansville, NY at 10 AM on Saturday June 14th. There will be a private interment in Ossian per Kam’s wishes. Donations in his name can be made to the Mary Saunders Beiermann Emergency Department Project, 111 Clara Barton St., Dansville, NY 14437; the Dansville Rotary, PO Box 6, Dansville, NY 14437 or a fund of personal choice.

While raising three young children, she earned her teaching degree and was a beloved fifth grade teacher in Livonia for 28 years. Dawn was active in many local groups including the Livonia Community Players, Teresa House, the Livonia Methodist Church, and always busy being Social Director for her large group of wonderful friends whom she cherished.
