Chester Robert Fraser

February 22, 1945 ~ November 2, 2018 (age 73)

Chester Robert Fraser was born February 22, 1945 to loving parents Harry Albert and Kathleen Fraser, in Southampton England. Following his cherished older sister Barbara (with her husband Steve Lilly), Chester came to Canada in 1967 to Burlington, Ontario. He lived and worked there until 1970, when he ventured west to Alberta, settling in Claresholm. Chester, a “Country Boy” at heart, met the “Farm Girl” love of his life, Darlene Fritzler of Vulcan, Alberta, and the two were married in 1978. He worked at Safeway Shelter Systems until 1980, and the next year moved on to (what is now known as) Triple M Housing Lethbridge, working there up to Thanksgiving of this year. He was often found working faithfully, cutting countertops on what he called “my saw”. Chester loved his job as well as the whole crew and office staff, whom he all considered friends, having concern for each one. Chester became a loving father to five children, Dean, Tiffany, Justin, his late son Joshua, as well as a late daugher. Chester leaves behind wife Darlene; his sons Dean and Justin; daughter Tiffany; as well as son-in-law Emmanuel Mba; and three grandchildren, Abigail, Esther, and David. He deeply cared for and worried about his friends, his brothers-in-law (Kenneth, Norman, and Philip), and each of their wonderful families. Chester will be dearly missed by all that knew him. He loved life, laugher, and the presence of children. A strong man who loved good, hated evil, and cherished his Lord and Saviour above all, looking forward to one day being reunited with those he loved so much who have gone on before. Celebration of life will be held at La Cite Des Rocheuses School (4800 Richard Road SW) on Thursday, November 15, 2018 at 6:00 pm. Photos, memories and condolences may be shared with Chester’s family through Arrangements in care of EVAN J. STRONG FUNERAL SERVICES.  (403) 265-1199
