Cameron Patrick Lee Bricker, son of Gregory Alan Bricker and Christina Marie Aldridge, was born October 1, 1996 in Overland Park, KS and departed this life on December 9, 2022 in Lawrence, KS. At the time of his passing, he was 26 years of age.
Cameron was preceded in death by his paternal Grandfather Duane Alan Bricker in 2005 and Grandmother Martha Ella Bricker in 2019 and maternal Grandfather Jerold Lee Aldridge in 2022.
Cameron is survived by his Father Gregory Alan Bricker of Eudora, KS, and Mother Christina Marie Aldridge of Eudora, KS. Cameron is also survived by two brothers, Michael Alan Bricker, Lenexa, KS and Brandon Ray Wiggins, Desoto, KS and two sisters Ashley Nicole Bricker, Lawrence, KS and Brooke Sophie Abram, Eudora, KS, a nephew, cousins, as well as a host of other relatives and many friends. Cameron loved his family and enjoyed being at family events.
Cameron was raised in Eudora, KS and went to school from kindergarten until graduation. Cameron was involved in a number of sports during his middle school and high school years. He played basketball, baseball, and was on the high school track team. Cameron never strayed far from home but always dreamed of seeing more of our country. He was the “baby” of the family growing up and quickly learned to hold his own with his older brothers and sister.
Cameron worked at several of the local factories, offices, and restaurant establishments in the Eudora, Desoto, Gardner and Lawrence area. His last job was at Amarr garage door factory, as a production worker. He was proud of his job there and often shared stories and pictures of his day at work. Cameron worked at Amarr the longest out of all his jobs and became proficient at many of the duties at the factory. He was a hard worker and well-liked by his supervisors and co-workers.
He had a passion for cooking and was quite a good cook. He worked at Paisano’s in Lawrence and always loved cooking there. He also worked for a short period of time at Wheatfields bakery, which was one of his favorite places to eat. He had a talent for making the food he prepared pleasing to the palate as well as to the eye. He enjoyed cooking a good meal and then sharing pictures with family and friends over social media.
Cameron spent a lot of time at the family home, cooking/grilling, out sightseeing, playing with Riley (family Yorkie), and just hanging out. He also enjoyed being with his friends and co-workers and hanging out on Mass Street in Lawrence. Cameron enjoyed skateboarding around Lawrence and the KU campus, often creating memorable videos. He enjoyed going to the driving range with his dad and showing off his golf skills. He loved his red Ford Ranger pickup and spent many hours with his dad maintaining and fixing it up.
Cameron had a kind heart and a wonderfully contagious smile. Those who knew Cameron understood he lived life fast paced, exactly the way he wanted to. Cameron was a fine young man with a lot of life to live and treated everyone with kindness and respect. We celebrate his love for his family and friends, his life and his accomplishments, and know that he will never be forgotten but greatly missed by all.

Messages & Condolences
I had the pleasure of working with Cameron at Amarr. We did not work side by side, but when I did get to talk with him he was always kind and light hearted. My thoughts and hopes for ease on your hearts are with Cameron’s family and friends.
It crushes me to hear about this. Cameron brought so much light to the world that even on bad days he reminded me to laugh and enjoy the moment. I’m heartbroken to know the Bricker family is going through this pain and can’t imagine what it’s like. Growing up with Cameron and our older brothers was a blessing I will truly cherish forever.
So sorry for your loss, I only met Cameron a few times when he visited his grandma Bricker. Martha thought her grandkids were very special and she loved them very much. God be with you and your family..
So very sorry for the loss of your son, brother, nephew and a cousin. Greg, we only met the one time in Urbana when you were with your mom placing flower on Memorial weekend. I have a son Cameron’s age and we lost his wife late February two years ago, so we under to some degree the pain of loss of someone gone much too young. Our thoughts and prayers with you and your family.
So very sorry for your loss of your son, prayers for comfort and peace, just know that grandma and grandpa are there taking over now, God bless you and family
Greg, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your son. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May God provide you comfort and strength during this most difficult time. God is with you so turn to Him in your sorrow and He will meet your needs daily.
My heart breaks for the Brickers. Cameron was one of a kind. He always had the biggest smile on his face. Always offering to help, wanting to learn or just have a good conversation. We were privileged to watch him grow and all those memories. He was loved more than he knew. Rest in Peace Cameron
So sorry for your loss. He was such a good guy.
I am so sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers for all of you
Cameron I pray you have found solace. I am so so so sorry I never reached out when you were hurting. I hope you have found the peace you need and know you will never be forgotten.
Paula and I are saddened to hear this. Through his struggles and accomplishments he brought us smiles as we watched him grow up.
We wish you comfort and peace.
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Cameron. I went to school with Cameron since as long as I can remember. I will always remember Cameron as the skinny kid who was always smiling or waiting to crack a joke. I remember dying laughing in middle school health class because of Cameron. He was a kid who didn’t deserve the struggles he went through as an adult. I hope now he’s somewhere where he’s happy and worry free. I will be sure to pray a little longer for the Bricker family during this time.
My Thoughts and Prayers go out to the Bricker Family! God Bless Greg, Michael & Ashley who I have known for years and spent many good times together. Cameron was truly a good person and i’m deeply saddened by this loss. God Bless you all!
