2024-04-20FRASER, Douglas S.

Douglas "Doug" Fraser passed away with love in his heart on April 20th, 2024 at the age of 85. He spent his last days surrounded by his adoring family.

Doug was born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan to Marjorie & Robert Fraser on June 10th, 1938. He spent his life as a man of integrity who touched the lives of those with the privilege of meeting him. He will be remembered for his expressive storytelling, quick wit, and hearty laugh.

Doug worked at the Burrard Drydock shipyards (among other locations across North America) in 1954-1996 as a loftsman, dutifully fabricating ships. Following that he worked as custodial staff for NVSD until his retirement in 1998. Beyond his work, Doug lovingly designed and visited "Paradise" regularly and Scottsdale, Arizona. He also enjoyed cruises of a lifetime and square dancing with his wife. He was an avid bowler (regular & lawn) and found joy in the companions he made through it.

Doug's eternal light will be carried on by his beloved wife Diane whom he spent his days making smile. She will be reminded of her love's warmth and heart everyday. He is also lived on by his children with his former spouse (Joanne); Randy, Rodger, Douglas, & Caroline. As well as his step-children Gregg and Gayle. Each saw him as a guiding light that imparted wisdom in their lives. Doug sowed the seeds of his legacy within his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They always listened intently to his tales and treasured their time with him. Finally, Doug is survived by his siblings Don and Margaret who's memories of him will never fade. As he brought such a brilliant light and joy to their childhood and beyond.

Doug will be deeply missed but memorialized forever in our hearts. May he rest in peace with his loyal companion Dusty by his side.
