Dr. F. Clarke Fraser

March 29, 1920 to December 17, 2014

FRASER, Dr. F. Clarke - PhD, MD, DSc (Acadia), DSc (N.Y. at Potsdam), DSc (McGill), LLD (Dalhousie), Officer of the Order of Canada, Prix du Québec recipient and Canadian Medical Hall of Fame laureate, died peacefully in Digby Nova Scotia on December 17, 2014. He is survived by his former wife Beryl (DeBlois) Fraser, his wife Marilyn Preus, children Norah, Noel (Patricia), Alan, and Scott (Tasha); and grandchildren Trevor, Emmett, Megan, Gillian, Masha, Alexander, and Ogden. Clarke was a quiet man with a gentle sense of humour who loved music, athletics, his family, and a scotch before dinner. He played rugger until the age of 40, and tennis until 81. Clarke frequently said how lucky he was, in both his career and his marriage to Marilyn, his beloved wife of 41 years. He is deeply loved and will be greatly missed by his extended family, his many colleagues and former students in medical genetics and teratology, and numerous friends and neighbours.
“He tried to be good.”
