Cameron, Denton Elwyn  
ELWYN CAMERON Having completed an extraordinary 90 years of life, Denton Elwyn Cameron passed away peacefully April 29, 2016, at his home, in Las Vegas. He was born Dec. 29, 1925, to Benjamin Cameron Jr. and Camilla Effie Cannon, in St. George, Utah, the third youngest of 16 children and the last of his siblings to pass. Prior to graduating from high school, Elwyn enlisted and briefly served in the U.S. Navy. After receiving an honorable discharge due to medical reasons in October 1944, Elwyn returned to Utah, where he married Laurel Jackson of Toquerville, Utah, Nov. 25, 1944, in the St. George Temple. After their marriage, Elwyn attended Dixie Junior College at St. George, where he completed his pre-dental education and was elected student body president. After finishing school, Elwyn and Laurel moved to Henderson, where Elwyn worked in various enterprises while earning enough money to attend dental school. Elwyn was admitted to dental school at the University of Oregon, School of Dental Medicine, in 1953. After graduating in 1957, the family returned to Nevada.

In addition to Laquita, Elwyn took on Laquita's eight children, Marcella, Kimberly, Scott, Christopher, Michael, Patrick, Jerry and Jill, expanding his family to a total of 12 children. Elwyn's love of the Gospel and his faith in the Lord, Jesus Christ, manifested itself in a lifetime of service to others. As a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Elwyn served in many callings, including perhaps his favorite, teaching early-morning seminary to high school students. From 1995 through 1996, Elwyn and Laquita served an 18-month mission in the New York, Rochester, Mission.
