STANLEY KEMP FRASER (published on August 21, 2010)

STANLEY KEMP FRASER May 28, 1919 - August 16, 2010 Quietly, on August 16, 2010, Stan passed away at the Convalescent Home of Winnipeg. Stan is survived by his sister, Grace Cobb Funk, his niece Valerie Taylor (John) and great-nieces Carley, Christie and Brittany; his nephew Gary Cobb (Bonita); great-nephew Bryan; and his cousins Gail Gowanlock and Raymond Kemp (Connie). Born in Homewood, MB to Clara Kemp Fraser and Frederick Fraser, Stan grew up in Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver. After high school, Stan worked in Fort William, ON building Hawker Hurricanes. From 1942 to 1945 he served his country as a R.C.A.F. mechanic for the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. Following the War, Stan worked with his father selling bread to Winnipeg customers, including a new little restaurant downtown called Rae Jerry's. One of the bakery's most popular products was Mrs. Fraser's Country Bread, made from his mother's own recipe. Stan also worked for many years as a furniture maker, and later served with the Commissionaires. Stan was an unheralded thread in the fabric that is Winnipeg. He had a good heart and a wonderful sense of humour. We love him and will miss him. Stan's family would like to thank all the wonderful people at the Convalescent Home of Winnipeg, and especially the folks on the 2nd Floor. You gave comfort to Stan and to us all and we're grateful. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made to the charity of your choice. A private family service will be held. Chapel Lawn 885-9715
