One of Moose Jaw's last living Second World War veterans, Al Cameron, has passed away at the age of 98. 

The Canadian Armed Forces and 15 Wing Moose Jaw learned of his passing on Thursday. 

Cameron was born on May 18, 1925, in Saskatoon. He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941 and moved to Moose Jaw where he did his basic training. He dreamed of being a pilot but a colour deficiency kept him from reaching that dream. 

Cameron enrolled to become an Air Frame Mechanic and on June 24, 1944, he went overseas to work on planes during the Second World War. 

His service took him to Italy where he worked with the 417 Spitfire Squadron. 

Cameron eventually retired from the Air Force but stayed in Moose Jaw. 

Throughout his life, Cameron had a passion for singing. This past season, he sang the national anthem at a Moose Jaw Warriors hockey game at the age of 98. 

According to 15 Wing Moose Jaw, services will be held on Thursday, Sept. 7. No other details on the services are known at this time.
