Obituary

GEOFFREY NICHOLAS FRAZER March 2, 1925-September 29, 2009 A Life Lived to the Fullest Geoffrey crossed over in his 84th year of adventures, with his loving and devoted wife Elsie by his side all the way through 62 years of marriage. Geoffrey was a proud entrepreneurial man, with an insatiable taste for world travel and boating on Georgian Bay aboard Puffins II. Being a British War Veteran, he took serious pleasure in capturing an audience of eager listeners, telling tales of adventure and bravery while enlisted with the Royal Air Force during WWII. The devastation witnessed at Hiroshima was forever embedded, and sowed the seed to devoting his spare time with Elsie, to the well being of the birds in their backyard. Their song, - his goal, after never being able to shake the overwhelming silence upon arrival at ground zero. Geoffrey, the son of a Shakespearian actor, was too quite the character. Forever tinkering with ideas and tools, always looking to "fix something", and editing his photos to perfection, never an idle moment. As a lifelong professional commercial photographer, he flourished, bringing his talented eye and methodical mind to the Toronto Telegram, then in the role of director of films for the Ministry of Transportation, and then as technical writer and photographer creating manuals for Princess Yachts and Neptunus Yachts. The latter consuming his dual passions until his 82nd year. Notably, Geoffrey Frazer was invited to work on the Avro Arrow as an air frame mechanic, fulfilling a fortuitous role in the history of Canada. His work was his world. Geoffrey will be missed by his sweet wife Elsie, and the entire Frazer family, his sister Nadia and brother Roger. Predeceased by his sister Audrey. His sons Peter, Roy and Keith and their wives send him loving farewell. Gramps will be fondly remembered by his nine amazing grandchildren and the brilliant great-grandchildren. A Celebration of Life is to be held at his son's home this Saturday, October 3, between 1-6 p.m. Family and friends are invited to come to #3 Braddock Dr., Brampton. 905-846-6746.
