It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of George William Fraser, age 75, beloved brother, uncle, granduncle and friend, on Sunday, March 11, 2018, at the Alderwood Rest Home, Baddeck. Born in North Sydney, Dec 12, 1942, he was the son of the late David Drummond Fraser and Mary Isabel ‘Mabel’ (Macdonald) Fraser.
George worked as a farmer all his life, until taking early retirement due to complications from Parkinson’s Disease. He was an elder of Knox Presbyterian Church, Ross Ferry for 50 years and treasurer of the church for 48 years. He was a member of the Southside Boularderie Fire Department, as well as being the treasurer for ten years.

By request there will be no visitation. A funeral service was held March 14 at Knox Presbyterian Church, Ross Ferry with Rev. Peter Macdonald officiating. Burial will take place at Macdonald Memorial Cemetery at a later date.
