“On Monday, 30 August 2021 we lost our Cam – my long-term partner in every aspect of life and planned future. Cam passed away peacefully nearly six weeks after a catastrophic stroke,” Ms Watson wrote in a Facebook post.

“We’ll be forever grateful for the dedicated care he received at the Gold Coast University Hospital.

“Cam and I have been inseparable since 2011, our shared world centred on messing about on boats. Describing what Cam means to me is impossible – everyone who knows us understands how much we simply loved each other.
