Cameron J. Kitten was born on October 16, 1993, to Philip and Carla Kitten in Lubbock, Texas. He quickly captured their hearts along with his doting big sister, Courtney, and all those in his extended family. He grew up in the Dallas/Fort Worth area graduating from Ponder High school in 2012. His Lubbock roots and love for Texas Tech called him home, where he successfully pursued further studies and a career as an agricultural pilot. His infectious smile shined brightly when he was flying, and his ambitions to pursue new piloting opportunities had no limit. He recently completed his multi-engine certification and was planning his future with Makenzie White, whom he became engaged to last December.

So many people have been touched and uplifted by Cameron and the way he lived life fully, loved unconditionally, gently quieted the storms, and recognized that while we all falter, we are each a child of God who is given a light to shine and a heart to inspire.

Cameron didn’t exist on this earth to be right but to do right – right by the Lord, his family, friends, and strangers who he openly embraced. He was faithful, dependable, and a trusted son, brother, and friend to all.

While Cameron left this earth far too soon, his spirit and beautiful legacy remain. It is his gift to all of us to not to leave with a broken heart but instead to fill your hearts with compassion and make a choice every day to love deeply, listen intently, hug hard, laugh freely, breathe in goodness, embrace the beauty of a blue sky, and never miss the opportunity to make a stranger smile. Fly high and be the wind that carries the wings of others.

Survivors include his mother, Carla Robinson Kitten; father and step-mother, Phillip and Brendi Kitten; sister, Courtney Ellis and husband David; grandfathers, Carl A. Robinson and Alvin Kitten; and fiancée, Makenzie White. And his reliable companion, a blue heeler named “Gus.”

He was preceded in death by his grandmothers, Agnes Kitten and Gay Robinson, who are hugging him tightly above.


The family of Cameron J. Kitten has designated the Cameron Kitten Scholarship Fund at Ponder High School, c/o Karen Antle, 400 W. Baily St., Ponder TX 76259 for memorial contributions donated in his memory.

  20. It’s heartbreaking that we are sadly looking back at the happy times of a young man just getting started in life’s journey.
    You can see in the video tribute that Cameron really loved life, his family, his friends, and his dog too.

  21. Today is the day of Cameron’s Funeral Service ………… [Cameron is my second cousin: his beloved “Papa,” his paternal grandfather Alvin, is not only my Dad’s younger brother, but also my own godfather] ………… and although it’s not possible for me –with my living in Rural Central Pennsylvania, i.e., State College, PA– to attend today ………… my heart will definitely “be there in spirit” with everyone!!
    I do a lot of animal and environmental advocacy; so, I truly admired Cameron’s great, abiding love for his faithful and devoted full-blooded blue heeler “Gus,” now 7 1/2+ years old who, I’m sure, is suffering the loss of Cameron, along with the rest of us. Cameron’s Papa, (i.e., my Uncle Alvin), has a little smooth-haired rescue dog “Sid” who’ll be able to comfort his poor, grieving canine buddy Gus ………… in the unique way/language that only longtime dog friends can comfort each other, you know. May The Soul Of My Good Cousin Cameron Joseph Kitten ………… Fly High And Fly Free, Forever And Ever, Amen.

  22. Sending healing prayers and comforting hugs to all of you in your time of loss.
    The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalms 34:18
    Love you Carla! Amy Watson

  23. Sending our love and prayers to you, Philip, and the family. It was a beautiful memorial service for Cameron, giving comfort to all of us who mourn his death. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

    My prayers are with his family.

  27. My thoughts and prayers are with you all! I did not know Cameron personally but from the comments and service he touched many many lives!

    May God continue to lift you up in prayer and the cherished memories of Cameron!
