Donald George McKillop
Founder and President of CAMCAD Technologies, Inc., passed away at his home on May 25, 2022 after a short but intense battle with lung cancer.
Don entered the apprenticeship program at Ford, and eventually completed the program as a Journeyman Tool and Diemaker. He used one of the first Computer-Aided-Machining, or CAM, software programs installed at Ford. After 10 years plus 1 day, he left Ford and continued to pursue a career in CAM and CNC with multiple companies.
In 1991, Don started CAMCAD Technologies Inc., selling and supporting SURFCAM CAM software. Over the years, he built CAMCAD Tech into one of Surfware, Inc.’s top resellers in the US with the help of his excellent technical and sales staff.
He was also well known for his edit-free drivers for multi-axis CNC machines.
He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, professional associates, customers, and all who knew and loved him.
