I was privileged to know Cam on many fronts in the last 20 years. We teamed up around 1993-1994 when I joined Dwyer-Curlett and he came on the scene with Nationwide Life. From the start it was obvious to me and the rest of my colleagues that Cam was extremely intelligent, hard working, trustworthy and competitive. He blossomed into one of the finest investment professionals in out industry. More than that, we all thought of him as a dear friend. He had a great laugh and smile. He actually joined our firm as a mortgage banker- as we say, he came over to the "dark side" and became "Camtana", as he manned our Las Vegas office. Outside the workplace, we all loved watching him bluff all in poker and rule the tables. There are great stories of Cam out on the lake, up on the ski hills and out on the golf courses. He also loved his dear wife Alicia and bragged about her skills as a teacher.

My wife Julie and I are so saddened by the loss of out great friend God bless him and Alicia

Our beloved son, brother & good friend, Cameron Eugene Pytel & his wife, Alicia Chaves, passed away suddenly in a car accident on December 31, 2014 near Orlando, Florida. Cam was born April 25, 1962 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada to Eugene & Melva Pytel, and is the oldest of three children. Cam’s family moved to Columbus, Ohio when he was five years old, and all of his schooling was completed in the Columbus area - from kindergarten to graduating from Ohio State with a BSC in Mechanical Engineering, and then an MBA. Cam met his beautiful wife “Kika” while she was attending Ohio State; they fell in love and were married for 15 years. Cam really lucked out - not only was Alicia kind and beautiful, but also a wonderful cook. They both loved traveling and spent their summer weekends boating on Lake Erie. Cam enjoyed working at Nationwide Insurance Co. for the last 19 years. He was involved with the real-estate investment area as a portfolio manager. He loved traveling to different areas of the country where he was able to meet many people and make new friends wherever he went. Cam was a good, kind-hearted, very generous man. His grandmother said that Cam was a friend to everyone. Cam has joined his paternal grandparents, Steve & Mary Pytel, and his maternal grandfather, Norman Paulsen, in heaven. Cam is survived by his grandmother, Hazel Paulsen; parents, Eugene & Melva Pytel; sister Kelly (Ken) Redd; brother Rick Pytel; nieces Stephanie (Nick) Large and Amanda (Joshua) Leckington; and nephews Joel (Allison) Redd and Mark Redd. Cam is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins. Cam always loved animals, especially their two dogs, Dude and Gizzy; who loved him as much as he loved them. Cam participated in many sports such as skiing, golfing, biking, swimming and hiking; and he loved cheering on his Ohio State Buckeyes. Cam loved life and lived it to the fullest. His brother Rick said, “Cam did more in his 52 years than most people do in 100.” His was a life well lived. Visitation for both Cam and Alicia will be on Friday, January 9th from 2 pm to 4 pm, and 6 pm to 9 pm at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, 313 N. State St. in Westerville where Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 10 AM Saturday, January 10th, followed by a private family interment. The Rev. Fr. David Gwinner Celebrant. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Columbus Academy Financial Aid Fund or the Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center, 4340 Tamarack Blvd, Columbus, OH.
