William Frazer

May 8, 1923- February 3, 2014

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of William “Bill” Frazer on February 3, 2014 at Cumberland Lodge, Cumberland, B.C. Bill was born in Toronto, ON on May 8, 1923.

A devoted husband to Marjorie and father to Maureen (Bruce), Alana (Jim), Tania (Willie) and Shaun (Pamela). Dad was also a proud grandfather of Manus (Maryann), Dayrdrai (Sean), Adam (Kristina), Simon, Morgan (Crystal), Michael, Mark and Chris and great grandfather to Bronwen, Aoiffe, Oliver, Storm and Sydney.

Bill was a proud member of the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (Combat Engineers) during the second world war and saw action on the continent, contributing to the support and success of the D-Day invasion at Juno Beach on June 6, 1944.

His love for life and engaging personality left many people he met with a lasting impression. Dad’s passion was spending time with his family and kicking up his heels on the dance floor.

Bill was predeceased by his father, Harry and mother, Jane and many of his brothers and sisters. Bill is survived by his sister, Sue.

Friends and family are invited to pay their respects and to share stories about Bill on Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 2:00pm at Piercy’s Mt. Washington Funeral Home, 440 England Ave, Courtenay.
