John Newby Fraser

Born September 28, 1915, Jack passed away on February 2, 2009 after a full and rewarding life. He will be greatly missed by his wife Alice and children John (Jandi), Richard (Sarah), Pamela (Drew) and Bruce (Catherine). Grandfather to: Graham, Lisa, John Campbell, Alicia, Richard, Laura, Adam, Elizabeth, Jean, Claire and Anya. Great Grandfather to: Amelia, Wyatt and Felix.

Jack was born and raised in Victoria and attended South Park Elementary and Victoria High schools. His career with the Royal Trust in Victoria spanned four decades. During World War II Jack served in the Royal Canadian Navy as a navigator on the corvette HMCS Calgary escorting convoys across the North Atlantic.

Jack and Alice were both born in Victoria and enjoyed the company of their life-long friends, many of whom gathered to celebrate their sixtieth wedding anniversary in 2002. Jack was an avid sportsman playing soccer, basketball and tennis in his early years. He later devoted many hours to refining his golf game, square dancing and bridge skills. He continued to play tennis into his eighties. His friendship, positive outlook and sense of humour will be long treasured and remembered.

No flowers please. Funeral service to be held at All Saints by the Sea, Ganges, Salt Spring Island on Saturday, February 14 at 2PM. Reception to follow in the church hall. Yes, it is Valentine’s Day, but then Dad was a real sweetheart.
