Edgar Newton FRASER

June 26, 1927 ~ May 21, 2008

Edgar passed away peacefully into the arms of Jesus on May 21, 2008 in 100 Mile House, B.C. He was born to Herbert and Nina Fraser in Coteau, North Dakota, U.S.A. Edgar was the 10th of 12 children. The family moved from North Dakota to Tisdale, Saskatchewan in 1927; in May of 1942 they moved to Aldergrove, B.C. At 16 years of age, Edgar enlisted in the army as a Private in the C.T.T.S. program. On November 23, 1957 he married his first -and only- love, Joyce Esther Scott in Vancouver, B.C. After 11 years of marriage, and four children, the family moved to 100 Mile House, B.C. in the year of 1968. Edgar started up Fraser Brothers Motors, the first GM/Polaris dealership in 100 Mile House, with his younger brother Russell Fraser. Edgar retired from business in 1975, after a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. After years of loving care at home, a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and a broken hip prompted a move to longterm care. Through all of this, Edgar’s faith remained strong; and he put the needs of his family before his own. Edgar will be lovingly remembered by his devoted wife of 50 years, Joyce, children Heather (Bill), Brent (Judy), Deborah (Stephen), Scott (Sherri-Lynn), grandchildren Cara (Matt), Laura; Joshua (Cordy), Aaron; Amelia, Brittany; Thomas, Melissa, Nathaniel, Rebecca; great-grandchildren Madison, Ty, Grayson, sister Nellie (John) and numerous nieces, nephews, and in-laws. Predeceased by parents Herbert and Nina; sisters Vera, Della, Jean, Evelyn; brothers Stewart, Wilson, Beverly, Fletcher, Russell and Ivan. Thank-you to: the staff of 100 Mile Hospital, Fischer Place, Millsite Lodge, medical professionals, and Dr. Street for their loving care; Shane and Meg Gunn of 100 Mile Funeral Service Ltd. and Pastor Dennis Smith of Bethel Chapel for walking the family through this difficult time. Funeral services were held on Tuesday, May 27, 2008 at Bethel Chapel, 100 Mile House, B.C. Internment followed at 100 Mile House Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society and Cystic Fibrosis Canada.

but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.”
