Cameron was born on December 20, 1999, in Overland Park, Kansas to his very proud parents, Ross and Alicia and his very excited big sister Ashlyn. The minute Cameron was born he was an incredibly special, kind soul. He would light up every room he entered without even knowing it. At the early age of 12, Cameron suffered the devastating loss of his best friend and father Ross, after a long struggle with brain cancer at the young age of 39. His mother Alicia, a Kansas City native, decided to bring Cameron back home to start a new beginning in her hometown. Unfortunately, that meant leaving his beloved nana, papa, uncle David and cousin Edward behind in the U.K., But the thousands of miles between them never got in the way of his strong bond and connection he had with his U.K. family. There were occasional visits after their move apart and His uncle David recalls hours and hours of great phone conversations with Cameron about his hobbies, but most of the talks were about their common passion for movies and music. Cameron loved many genres of music but classic rock was his all-time favorite such as: Pink Floyd, Journey, Queen, Rolling Stones and AC/DC. His love for movies varied to, but his mother says they always loved to watch horror films and comedies together. Some of his favorite actors include Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Mark Wahlberg, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Simon Pegg, Robert De Nero, Jack Nicholson and Clint Eastwood.
After their move back to the Kansas City area in the summer of 2012, Cameron was the scared new kid in eighth grade, he quickly made friends with an amazing group of young boys that had a very special bond, the type of bond that would last a lifetime. They all shared many great memories through the years like Playing music, going to the mall, long drives, late night Taco Bell runs, staying up till dawn watching movies and of course the all-nighter, fighting video game wars. They say all that really mattered most, was that they were all together. They have many words to describe their best friend such as: he was witty, funny, a “scene” stealer, a natural leader, quick to laugh, and difficult to anger. His mother and sister have too many memories to count but the ones that stick out the most are: their days in the mountains, horseback riding, camping, boating, music festivals, going to the beach, fisherman’s wharf and just simply being outdoors. They say the best memory of all was that wonderful, sunny day when just the 3 of them road bikes together through their favorite city of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. His cousins Landon and Jaden say their best memory of Cameron was their fun trip to Branson and doing Taekwondo together. This list could go on and on, but most important was
Cameron's amazing ability to leave a lasting impression on everyone that got to know him. An impression we will always carry with us in our hearts. Cameron and his father also shared their best memories together in their San Francisco days, which is why his U.K. Grandparents, Bob and Chris and his mother have decided to bury their ashes together. Then they will celebrate their lives by spreading them over the Golden Gate Bridge in November.
Cameron was preceded in death by his father Ross Allen and grandfather Max Roberts. He is survived by his mother Alicia Roberts-Allen of Overland Park, Kansas, sister Ashlyn E. Roberts, Kansas City, Missouri, grandparents Chris and Bob Allen, England; Grandmother Kathrine Roberts, Kansas City, Kansas; uncle David Allen and cousin Edward Allen, England; Aunt Dawn Valentine and cousins Jaden and Landon Valentine, Independence, Missouri and many, many other family members and lifelong friends. Rip and sweet dreams Cameron Allen. May you stay in our hearts forever!! gone to soon but never forgotten.
