It is with heavy hearts that we announce the tragic death of Fraser on Wednesday, September 2, 2020 due to a workplace accident. Fraser was one month into his 51st year and although he complained of getting old, he was taken much too soon. "Best Dad Ever", to Ellison (14) and Aimee (12). Ex-husband and dear friend to Trudy. Fraser was the youngest son of Margaret, Wee Bruv to Ross and brother-in-law (twice!) to Diane. Brother in law to Bill and Janine Jones and son in law to Marion Schoeman. Fun uncle to Sarah, Connor, Breanna, Alex, Antaya and Curtis. Fraser joins his Dad (Tom) and brothers Scott and Grant in the place wherever you go when you die. One of Fraser's greatest passions was his music, he listened, played, recorded and taught it. The family kindly request that donations be made to the Hamilton Music Collective - An Instrument for Every Child. https://hamiltonmusiccollective.ca/donate/make-a-donation.

From time to time, Fraser and I had some chats on the front steps. The last time we spoke, the one thing that he expressed to me (and lit up when he said it) was that no matter what challenges he was going through, his girls were his strength and his joy. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family - Trudy, Ellison and Aimee.

Its hard to put into words just how sorry I am for you loss. I had the privilege to work with Fraser for a couple years and he was someone that I could count on to do the job right but more importantly he was someone I looked forward to talking to. My heartfelt sympathies go out to the family, he is gone far to soon.
