Born 28 March 1940-Deceased; 16 March 2011, “ Well folks, it’s finally happened: l’ve fallen off my perch. My Mum and Dad were Robert and Anne Cooper, of Guelph. Dad was Canadian; Mum was a Scot; l’ve been Canadian by birth but Scots by inclination all my life. Son of Robert and Anne Cooper, both deceased. Beloved best friend, companion and husband of Jill Douglas. Deeply missed by Jill’s mother, Lucille Douglas, and Jill’s children; Christie Wynn (Tim Tonner), Douglas Wynn (Karen) and Linda MacMillan (Kier and their children Breagh and Brin). Survived by his children from a previous life; Catherine Anne, Derek Fraser and Mathew Robert. Fraser, an Engineering Technologist, taught Telecommunications at Conestoga College for most of his working life. His hobbies included amateur radio, hiking and backpacking. However, his main interest was in British cars, particularly MG sport cars, one of which he owned and loved since 1963. Fraser was an active member of the British Saloon Car Club of Canada, Cambridge Amateur Radio Club and the Millrace Folk Society. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Unit at Grand River Hospital or Cambridge Humane Society would be appreciated. “(In closing) I want you to be as happy for me as I am for myself. I’ve had a good run, and it’s time for me to go.” The family will receive friends at Coutts Funeral Home 96 St. Andrews Street Cambridge for a Memorial Visitation on Saturday March 19, 2011 from 2-4 and 7-9P.

Fraser was one of my teachers at Conestoga College and probably one of the best I had there. A very nice guy who taught in a clear and understandable manner.

Alas I missed the obit in paper or I would have attended. Sorry to learn of Fraser's passing. For 22 years I walked the same halls at Conestoga College and often chatted with Fraser especially as he was in a like area of teaching. My thouhts and prayers are with the family.
