Will miss Cam Daggett

    Ten years ago, I moved to Elkhorn as a full-time resident. One month later, I volunteered for the Blaine County Search & Rescue K9 unit. This was my introduction to Cam Daggett, who was the volunteer commander of the K9 unit. He built a strong cadre of K9 handlers to service the county, including providing avalanche training for all of the Ski Patrol.
    He did this as a volunteer on his own time. We all have benefited. This is only a small part of the contribution he has made to our community and I was fortunate to be included. Throughout the 10 years I spent serving with him, I gained an immense respect for his committed and ethical behavior. On searches, you always want to be on a team where you are confident the other members have your back. With Cam that was never a question. Cam and I were on many search missions, as well as training scenarios, involving long weekends and late nights. There were a number of searches for Sun Valley residents or guests who were missing within Blaine County. And the K9 Unit always performed admirably under Cam’s volunteer leadership.
    He will be missed both in the city and county as a leader and friend. Cam, knowing the treatment you received, I apologize for not being there to watch your back.
