FRASER, Malcolm

1941 - 2020

In his 79th year, at Grace Village, Sherbrooke, Que., Malcolm “Mac” Fraser, highly respected and much-loved Cookshire farmer, postmaster and community leader, peacefully passed into eternal rest on March 16th 2020 following a long illness.

Born on August 25th, 1941, in Cookshire, Malcolm Jared Fraser (affectionately known to his siblings as “Moose”) was the 4th of the 12 children of Donald Alexander Fraser and Alice Elizabeth Margaret Hood.

He leaves in mourning his wife Doreen Tryon; his son Tim (Maria Muñoz); his siblings: the late Marina (Richard Tracy), June (the late Gordon Patterson), John (Merle Dunn), Winston (the late Rebecca Humphrey), Marilyn (Phil Reed), Stevens (Rebecca Ulrich), Warren (Rose Bird), Karen (George Jackson), Diane (Richard Keet), David (Nadia Chebki and the late Bertina Benitez), and James (Carol Alette); his former wife Janice Curtis; his sister-in-law Linda (Georges Robitaille) plus many other relatives and countless friends.

Due to current restrictive measures relating to the COVID-19 situation, the funeral service will be held at a later date.

Donations to the Dr. Klinck Fund of the Grace Village Care Foundation will be gratefully accepted.

His wife Doreen and the Fraser family wish to acknowledge with sincere gratitude the compassionate care that Mac received from the staff of Grace Village and Grace Christian Home.

Tim has been a long time member of our Christmas tree operations.
He is and always be a close person to our son Shawn.
Please accept our condolences to all the members of his extended family.
We knew Janice more than Malcom.

All the Fraser family

To all of you.

I remember meeting all of you in Cookshire in 1966. It was a good summer. I remember him very well in the post office and haying for his dad. Warren and Frasier was there too. I remember him at the fair.

Frasier came to do my income tax. We were talking about him. I asked how he is doing. He is with the Lord now. He is laughing, talking and leaping with the Lord. I have four daughters. One daughter always says this when somebody dies. I have fond memoires. I am in tears now. My condolences to all of you.

Our hearts go out to you. It was such an honour to work with Mac on the fairboard for so many years. His devotion to the fair and so many other community organisations will never be matched.
