It is with great sadness that as a family we announce the passing of Douglas
Peter Fraser. Doug passed away on Tuesday, May 28th, 2019 at Foothills Hospital,
with a number of family and friends by his side. Doug always lived his life exactly
how he wanted to live it, but unfortunately lost a hard-fought battle with cancer at
the age of 67.
Doug was born in the greater Toronto area on August 13th, 1951. Doug met the
love of his life Debra at the age of 16 and he and Debra married on May 26th, 1972.
Shortly after, he and his new bride began their crazy family. Doug and Deb
decided to move to Calgary with their crew in 1987 to join their partners in crime,
sister-in-law Robyn and her husband Bob for a life in Alberta where Doug lived
out the rest of his years.
Doug is survived by his devoted wife Debra of 47 years, his daughter Tonya
(Scott), his son Digger (Jen), and his four grandchildren Morgan, Sarah, Dawson
and Cole who absolutely adored their papa and his sick sense of humour.
Doug enjoyed the last nine years of his life working at his dream job, managing
campgrounds in Kananaskis Country. He and Deb lived in peace and nature,
surrounded by fantastic people, management, co-workers and friends – some of
which were also there right until the end with Doug and his family.
At Doug’s request there will be no funeral or service, as he was adamant that “No
one needs to be crying over me!” In honour of Doug, donations to the Canadian
Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.
Many thank you’s are sent from the family to the doctors, nurses and support
staff at Foothills Hospital for their amazing care of Doug throughout his recent
health struggles, right up until the end of Doug’s life.
“The world changes from year to year, our lives from day to day, but the love and
memory of you, shall never pass away.”
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Douglas Peter Fraser May 28th 2019..
