MacGREGOR, Kam Nelson

It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of Kam Nelson MacGregor. Kam passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his family.

Kam lived exactly the life that he wanted. Kam and Dianne, his wife of forty-six years, worked hard to build the life they dreamed of for their family. Nothing gave them as much joy and pride as spending time with their family, especially their grandchildren.

Kam was larger than life and had an incredible ability to embrace and accept anyone he met. He welcomed everyone to his home, bunkhouse, campfire, cookstove or trail and this led to endless life-long friendships. Kam lived with integrity and was known as a true horseman. Kam often said that his bucket list was empty.

Kam will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Dianne, his children and grandchildren; Scott, Joe, and Holly; Shannon (Bill), Wyatt, Maclin, and Tessa; Heather (Ryan) and Marty; Kent (Amanda), Everett, and Kaycee; Megan (Percy), Emmerence, and Mason. His siblings; sister Shelley; brothers, Ross and Barton, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

Kam was predeceased by his parents; mother Ruby, father Duncan and stepfather Paul Heinz, his grandparents; Nels and Philomen Jensen, and Dianne’s parents; Patrick and Simonne Sheehan.

A private Celebration of Life will be held on the farm for immediate family.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be mailed to:

So sorry to hear of Kam’s passing. He was larger than life and I cannot remember how many laughs we shared over his “you can’t fix stupid” remarks. He was a wonderful “Super” and ran the area like his own. His integrity and smile were huge. Kam was so proud of Dianne and his family and mentioned them often. I just know he’s somewhere pranking someone.

It is with great sadness when I heard this news. Kam was a one of my favorite cousins. I have a large painting that has a cowboy crouching by a small fire, out on the prairies on a winters day. Petting his dog and his horse standing beside him. It always reminded me of Kam.

Dear MacGregor Family,

Hearing of Kam’s passing has impacted me deeply. I had the pleasure of working for Kam while he was dreaming up the first MacGregor quarter horse sale. His excitement and passion was truly inspiring and infectious. Knowing Kam has absolutely had an impact on where I am today, and for that I will be forever grateful.

He took a chance on me when I was trying to find my way in the industry, he taught me more than school ever could. I still think of his advice, albeit tough love, to this day.

Kam was a wonderful soul, I will cherish our memories shared in the bunkhouse after work each day.

Sending my prayer and love your way.

Beverly Gellert and Omer Diehl

Dear Meghan, Percy, Emmy and mason:
