In Loving Memory

On May 8, 2013 we lost a loving husband, father and grandfather. Terry Richard Fraser was born in Seattle on February 24th, 1932. He attended St. Joseph's Elementary on Capital Hill. In 1944, he moved with his family to Alaska, where he graduated from Anchorage High School in 1950. He then attended the University of Washington, graduating in 1954. At UW, he was a member of Sigma Nu fraternity. After leaving UW, he went to the Air Force Flight School in 1956 where he trained to fly T-33s, the first F80 operational fighter jet. After leaving the Air Force in 1958, he managed a small insurance agency while also flying for the Alaska National Guard. In 1963 he was recruited by Air America to fly for Civil Air Transport (CAT), which was owned by the CIA. While with CAT, he flew for Air America and Southern Air Transport, which were headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan. He flew for nearly 12 years throughout Southeast Asia before returning to Seattle in 1975. He then continued flying for several years with various airline and freight companies. He is survived by his wife, Ludmeela, his daughter Terriko Somers, and two grandchildren. He is also survived by a younger sister, Jean Tousignant, and seven nieces and nephews. Terry will always be remembered for his adventurous spirit, strong will, love for telling a good story, and his wicked sarcastic sense of humor.

There will be a memorial at Sand Point Country Club on June 7th. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (www.lls.org).
