In Memory

Cameron Gosling

22 Sep 2000 - 05 Jul 2015

This site is a tribute to Cameron Gosling. Cam was born in Bishop Auckland 22nd September 2000 and instantly made a huge impact on our lives, his wit and intelligence made him a determined young man who proved himself to be a credit to us right from primary school. Cam was the sort of person who pushed himself to achieve specific goals from mastering a yo-yo, to learning Thai boxing and then flipping his scooter over his head and landing on it again, he was a very popular lad with a very mixed bag of friends and would think nothing of learning kids a lot younger than himself how to do tricks in the skate park, he was loved by everyone. On the 5th July 2015 Cam and his friends went swimming in our local river unaware of the risks they faced, to them they were making memories. At 4.30pm the police received the call that was to change our lives forever. Cam was a little comedian that lit up any room he went into if you didn't know him when he arrived you most certainly would by the time he left, he was a people person and his friends were his life, hes left a hole in our hearts that will never heal but I hope his memory will help raise awareness of cold water shock to hopefully prevent another family going through the trauma of loosing a loved one.
