On February 23, 2023 at the young age of 24, Cameron Sanders Johantges passed away peacefully with his grandpa George holding his hand and leading him to heaven. Cameron was a kind, loving, loyal, generous, protective, and charismatic young man. He was incredibly intelligent, had a witty sense of humor, and was a brilliant and creative filmmaker.
Cameron was passionate about film making. His scripts were often witty and filled with off-kilter humor about everyday life and social constructs. He had a comedy and character dialogue style that was uniquely Cam. His knack for writing intense horror stories riveled those of Stephen King and George Romero. Cameron had a unique vision that cannot be replicated.
Cameron loved spending every October at Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando, Florida with family and friends. Every trip from this year forward will be a celebration of him, his life, and his love of filmmaking. He might not be present, but he will always be with us as we traverse the Universal Studios patented haunted houses.
Cameron, we love you and will always remember “Olive Branch”. We will never forget your smile, always put on our work shirts, always follow the bro code, and always leave a glass of milk nearby. This is not goodbye, it’s just an intermission until we are together again in heaven.
Cameron, your journey is a celebration of a new life for you in heaven and a blank canvas for you to create the greatest film ever made. You are now reunited with grandpa George, uncle Stevie, half-sister Reagan Hope, and all the family that preceded you.
Cameron’s passing is a tremendous loss to his family and friends including his mother, Carol Johantges; brother, Brandon Johantges; grandmother, Deborah Johantges; father, Christopher Johantges; stepmother, Megan Johantges; half-brother, Lincoln Johantges; stepbrother, Anthony Kramer; special family, James and Lisa Kramer; and best friend, Pierce Lancaster.
In lieu of flowers, the family would like donations to help fund the Mayo Clinic’s liver dialysis and medical device research. Donations can be sent via Venmo to @Carol-Johantges or PayPal to @Cjohantges
