Cameron Michael Kelinson passed away peacefully in the arms of his loving parents on Saturday, October 5, 2019 in Iowa City. He was 43 hours old. A memorial service will be held 2 p.m. Sunday, October 20 at Iles Dunn's Chapel. Private burial will be at Glendale Cemetery.

Cameron was born October 3, 2019 in Des Moines to Jennifer Bassett and Adam Kelinson. They eagerly anticipated his arrival, preparing his nursery and paying lots of visits to the doctor over the last few months. Though they knew he may be born ill, they held on to hope and knew that he would bring immeasurable joy to their family. Despite the valiant efforts of doctors and nurses in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units at Unity Point Hospital and the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Cam could not overcome the physical ailments that kept him from breathing properly. He will always be remembered fondly as a very active baby in his mother’s womb, and precious occupant of his parents’ hearts.

Cameron is survived by his parents, grandparents Brian Bassett, Debra Smith and Craig and Nancy Kelinson; his aunt Erin Kelinson, uncle Christopher Bassett, cousins Marissa and Alexander Bassett, and great-grandmother Donna Smith, as well as a cadre of wonderful aunts, uncles and cousins.

Thank you to all who loved him before he was born. Thank you to all who prayed for him while he was alive. And thank you to all who continue to love him, remember him and cherish him.
