FRASER: On Monday, April 4, 2022 with his children by his side, Norval "Keith" Fraser, age 87 years, went peacefully to be with his Lord and Saviour and to be reunited with the love of his life. Keith was born on December 23, 1934 in Winnipeg, MB. He grew up in rural south western Manitoba, including Belmont. In 1965, he became pen pals with Linda Crewson and after writing for almost 10 months, they married on October 9, 1965. They were married for 51 wonderful years before God called Mom home in 2016. Dad was a farm labourer, and a faithful, hard-working employee with everyone he worked for. In September 1986, Dad lost his left arm in a farming accident, and although it was a painful and devastating loss, it allowed Dad to spend many wonderful years with Mom. Dad endured many challenges and had an amazing attitude with each one. Dad was a faithful, long-time member of Faith Fellowship Church and was so happy to be able to return there just recently before his passing. Dad's favourite things in life were spending time in the yard, gardening, and most of all travelling. He and Mom enjoyed 7 different cruises through the years, and one more with his son, Joe, after Mom's passing. He didn't quite reach his goal for 10. After Linda's passing, Dad moved into Rideau Park Personal Care Home so he could have the assistance that he needed. He loved when the staff would come into his room to hear his daily joke or just visit. Dad loved the staff at Rideau, and we are so thankful for the care they gave him and that they loved him as much in return. Remaining to cherish his memory are his three children, Darlene (Tim) Croker, Dianne (Daryl) Beswitherick, Joe (Leslee) Fraser; grandchildren Ben (Krista) Croker, Candice (Daniel) VanDamme, Micah Croker, Kayleigh Croker (Fiancé Danny Whyte), Destiny (Doug) Jardine, Alexia Gosselin, Jaxon Gosselin; great-grandchildren Alissa Hersey, Lexi, Daxton and Khloe VanDamme, Benson and Sawyer Croker. Dad adored each member of his family and prayed for them faithfully every day. Keith was laid to rest in a private graveside service at Brandon Cemetery. Donations in memory of Keith may be made to Turtle Mountain Bible Camp, Box 1198, Boissevain, MB R0K 0E0.

Dad, we will miss you so much!
And as you would say to
each of us before we would end our phone calls -
bye for now!
