It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of John Albert Fraser, age 76, of Westmount, on Tuesday, April 9, 2019, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney. Born September 6, 1942, in Halifax, John moved to Cape Breton in 1946, where he would eventually marry and raise his family. He was a wonderful husband, father, son, brother, grandfather and great-grandfather. John was a very private man. He loved spending time with his family, whom he adored, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. John will be sadly missed by his wife of 58 years, Elizabeth (Brown) Fraser; four sons, John (Ann), Paul (Verna), Scott (Freda) and Kevin (Crystal); two daughters, Darlene (Larry) and Lisa (Jamie); his mother, Jean Marie (Lemire) Fraser; and his sister, Shirley, as well as 15 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his father, Joseph Albert Fraser. At John’s request, there will be no visitation. Funeral service will be held at Sydney Memorial Chapel on Thursday, April 18 at 11 a.m., with Mr. Gary Grant officiating. Interment will take place at a later date. Special thanks to the staff in the palliative care unit at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital who took such great care of John.
