Coach, coming from Oklahoma as a lost young man. You ALWAY'S gave that one on one attention in every conversation from your office or the field. That open door policy you had made me realize that everyone is important from the ticket guy or the top recruit. You treated everyone the same and i witnessed that every day for 4 years....You Made everyone feel number one...That is why you wore that number...thank you for being in my life coach...

My only recollection of coach Fraser is a short but onforgettable one. In April 1977 I was guest of the Miami Hurricanes for three weeks. Although a long time ago for me an experience I will never forget. He really made me feel at home for those three weeks and I will remember him for as long I shall live as one of the friendliest people I have ever met. I feel very sorry for his family for this great loss.

Ron was a man among men and he will always be remembered at the University of Maimi and the baseball community. I did not have the pleasure of playing for him but I worked with him for many years through the Hurrucane Club, the Alumni Assoc. and the UM Sports Hall of Fame. He was the greatest and always looking for new ways to promote UM Baseball. God Bless you Coach.

So sad to hear of Coach Fraser's death. A great leader, inspiring tutor, amazing tactician. Playing for Coach Fraser were the best 4 years of my life. He didn't care who you were or what you looked like - the best players played. I will always cherish his memory. Chuck Leve, UM Baseball 1966-70.

What a great man. I was a student at UM and went to a lot of baseball games. He gave UM athletics something to be proud of. He supported all sports including our women's golf team. I was lucky to have had the privilege of knowing such a wonderful and inspirational man. He touched so many without even knowing it. He will be missed

I was on Coach Fraser's Baseball Coach's Committee in the early 1980s with other prominent Miami businessmen and knew him well. I knew him as a gentleman, incalculable asset to the University of Miami and the best college baseball coach then and since.
Coach and I used to share refreshment on occasion at Fox's in South Miami and talk about how lucky we both were to be from, with and for The U.
Rest in peace, Coach Fraser. There will never be another like you.

For Ron,
God saw you were getting tired
When a cure was not to be,
He closed his arms around you
And said,"come to me".
In tears we saw you sinking
We watched you fad away.
Our hearts were almost broken
You fought so hard to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping
So peacefully from pain,
We could not wish you back
To suffer so again.
So keep Your arms around him,
Lord, and give him special care
Make up for all that he suffered
And all that seemed unfair

Grew up in same neighborhood! Great family and friend, Will be missed by many!

Ron played ball for my dad at Nutley high. They never forgot each other. Ron was very kind to my Dad over the years, and my Dad would often talk about how much he appreciated Ron as both a friend and a ballplayer. RIP Ron.

Ron Fraser was one of the kindest men I ever met. Once when I was broadcasting the FSU-Miami game on Seminole radio at Mark Light, he was on the telecast next to me. He saw my Dad who was elderly struggling to get downstairs from the top of the stands (there are no hand rails) and he left the booth and grabbed his arm and helped my Dad make it all the way to the bottom. Yes, Ron Fraser was a special person.

.The Dale family sends deepest sympathy to the entire Fraser family - Ron was always the ultimate family man - we are all left with happy and warm memories of life on 163rd street.
Wishing you all the comfort of knowing he is now in a better place

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

It is an honor and a privilege to be able to say I played for you. You touched the lives of countless players, students, fans and even opponents. What you have given to the sport of baseball is incredible and immeasurable. THANK YOU Coach for everything!!! Prayers to Karen, the family and all of the Hurricane Nation on our loss....RIP #1

Coach Fraser was a fine man who taught his players life and not just baseball. The very first time I met him, he taught me a lesson in humility that carries through to this day. It was quite subtle but I tucked in my tail that day! Yet when things weren't going so well for you, he'd put his arm around you for solace much like a father would do to a son....
I'm sure he's running one of his extended practices right now in Heaven; teaching as he always did and getting the most out of everyone...always.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and to all of his former players as well.

I grew up watching Miami baseball and had the honor of meeting coach Fraser. He was kind enough to speak to the NM High baseball team I was coaching at the time. Great human being. RIP Coach.

Ron was a high school friend. He played baseball with my husband, Joe. He was a great pitcher, and lots of fun. Nutley will not forget him.

So sad to hear of coaches passing my prayers go out to his family what a great human being he was rip coach

I am so saddened to hear of Coach Fraser's passing, although I knew very well how he battled his illness.

His appearance even in 2006, and the determination to make his own acceptance speech at the College Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, was inspirational.

Sincerest condolences to Karen and the entire Fraser family...it was my privilege to work with Coach Fraser over the years on different projects, and of course as one of the first 10 Inductees into the HOF. Without his hard work and determination over huge odds, college baseball today would be not be the same place, with the same national exposure. And there simply would be no Hall of Fame without him.

I'll always cherish the memory of him tugging my arm after the HOF ceremonies and saying, "John, we did it!" I will truly miss this man.
