FRASER, David Roy – It is with sadness that his family an­nounces the death of David Roy Fraser, age 78, who passed away peacefully on February 22, 2014, in the QEII Health Sciences Centre, Halifax. Born in Halifax, David was a son of the late Henry and Queenie (Co­chran) Fraser. He was a lifelong resi­dent of Halifax and attended Queen Elizabeth High School, Dalhousie University and the Technical Uni­versity of Nova Scotia where he re­ceived his degree in Civil Engineering. David’s business ca­reer included engineering projects throughout Nova Scotia during his early professional years, followed by 38 years as president of Monarch Enterprises Limited, Dartmouth, a firm which he founded in 1976. David was a long-standing member of First Baptist Church, Halifax. He enjoyed time with family and friends during April vacations in Florida, summers at Port Howe, Au­gust visits to Kennebunkport, Me. and annual trips to Victoria, B.C. A special and memorable time for all was the fun, fellowship and culinary delights of David’s long-standing Ju­ly birthday celebrations. He will be lovingly remembered for his kind­ness, good humour, generosity and quiet, gentle, manner by his wife of 55 years, Joan (McLaughlin); son, Peter (Debbie Fitzgerald) of Halifax; daughters, Susan Fraser-Mosky (Nick Mosky) of Victoria, and Janice Fraser (Steve Machat) of Dart­mouth. He was adored and will be greatly missed by his grandchildren, Lindsay, Sasha, Hannah, Ella, Sam, Noah, and great-grandson, Dylan. David is also survived by his broth­er, Eric (Ginny) of Beaver Bank, and several nieces, nephews and cou­sins. Cremation has taken place.
