He received numerous awards and recognitions including the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal and Paul Harris Fellow from the Rotary Foundation.

He is survived by his brother Neil and Marg Fraser of Dieppe, nephew Darren and Dawn Fraser and their children Graydon and Maddison of Fredericton, niece Debbie and John MacDonald and their son Connor of Dieppe, an aunt, Agnes Prosser of Calgary as well as several cousins.
