Obituary

Ronald James FraserJanuary 28, 1924 – April 30, 2018 The family of Ronald James Fraser is very sad to announce its much-loved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather passed away on April 30, 2018. Ron will be forever missed by his wife of 70 years Martha, three children: Nancy (Bill), Butch (Darlene) and Sally (Bryant), seven grandchildren and soon to be 12 great-grandchildren. The following description of his life are Dad’s own words he wrote for his 50-year reunion of Brooks School. We thought it was fitting that he should have the last word, as he always did. After Sunday dinners, Dad would follow us to the door and say, “Thank you for coming.” Born in East Vancouver on January 28, 1924. Came to Powell River in May 1929 for a six-month visit while dad was on construction and resided here ever since.Lived in Cranberry, Westview and Powell River and attended all four schools. Played the usual school sports and lacrosse for Home Gas. Left Brooks School in 1941, was employed in the steam plant and left shortly after to join the Naval Combined Operations. Discharged in 1946.Returned to Powell River and resumed work in the steam plant. On July 21, 1947, married Martha Styer from Savona, whose father’s store was well known to Powell River people travelling to Kamloops. We had three children, who in turn have given us seven grandchildren.In September 1948, I transferred to the millwright department and in 1970 was made a maintenance supervisor, a position I held until June 12, 1987. I retired after 45 years. I now enjoy doing the things I love the best, hunting, fishing, travelling and the grandchildren. The family would like to extend its thanks to all the staff at Evergreen Care Unit. Their kindness, patience and words of encouragement meant a lot to us during Dad’s short stay. In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of your choice would be appreciated. A celebration of life will be held at 1 pm on Friday, May 11, at Royal Canadian Legion, 6811 Alexander Street.
