MUIR, Fraser Alexander of Wasaga Beach

Posted by on July 13, 2016

Mr. Muir (2)Fraser was born in Westville, Nova Scotia, on June 27, 1924, and died at home in Wasaga Beach, ON, surrounded by his family and all of our love on July 7, 2016. Survived by his dear wife of 62 years Joan Marie (nee MacDonald) of Sydney NS, and his five children; Donald (Heather) of Toronto, ON, Sheona Ayles (John) of Quesnel, BC, Ellen (Dan Novosad) of Rosemere, QC, Sandy (Heather) of Calgary, AB and Brenda (Dalton Wenstob) of Edmonton, AB, and ten grandchildren, Heather, Jennice, Alex, Andrew, Jenna, Quinn, Riley, Fraser, Saoirse, Tobias and great grandson, Carson. Also survived by his niece and nephew Vicki (Nelson) Dengler of Gentry, AR and Robert Muir, of Dublin CA. Fraser joined the RCAF at the age of 18 and served as a mid upper gunner on the Lancaster completing 36 sorties with 50 Squadron in Bomber Command. After he returned, he graduated from St. Francis Xavier University where he met the love of his life via a snowball on St. F.X. Day, Dec 3rd, 1947. Hired by Air Canada in Halifax, he spent the bulk of his 30 year career in Montreal living in Rosemere, QC, for 44 years where he served on town council for 23 of those years. He called Wasaga Beach home for the past 13 years, a setting where he routinely exercised his passion for photography capturing sunsets as God intended for them to be seen. He was an active member of the Knights of Columbus and the Royal Canadian Legion, RCAF Wing 441, and served on countless committees and executive bodies of community and church organizations, including the National Executive for several years with the Air Canada Pionairs. His most notable accolades for his gift of always putting others’ needs before his own are being among the first of inductees into the Hall of Thought at St. F. X. University where he was described as “a man whose creeds are sharing and self-sacrifice”. He was also recognized by the Canadian government with the Citation for Citizenship Award, as well as, being presented with the Legion of Honour from the Republic of France. His flight to heaven was direct – God’s reward for having dedicated his life to the service of his country, community, church and family. His dry wit and sense of humour meant many a laugh was shared throughout his life and he continued to make us laugh in his final days. A world traveller, a gifted storyteller, a deep listener, a magnificient dancer with only one dance partner. Godspeed, Dad, your life and love changed the world. Friends will be received on Monday, July 11, 2016 at Carruthers & Davidson Funeral Home – Wasaga Chapel, 509 River Road West, from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm. Funeral Mass to be held on Tuesday, July 12th, 2016, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Noel Chabanel Catholic Church, 133 Dunkerron Avenue, Wasaga Beach. Thanks to Doctors Holloway, Lisi, Pressnail, and the St. Elizabeth Nurses and PSWs. Your compassion during this sacred journey for Fraser matters. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Campbell House Hospice in Collingwood, Ontario, are welcome, though an act of kindness in his name would be equally appreciated.  For further information and to sign the Book of Memories, log on to www.carruthersdavidson.com
