JAMES “GRANT” FRASER, BA September 21, 1954- July 13, 2021 died suddenly at his home in Dartmouth, NS. Grant lived in St. Paul’s as a small boy but was later raised in Eureka, Pictou County Nova Scotia. He moved to Fredericton where at the University of New Brunswick he received his Bachelor of Arts Degree (Industrial Sociology). He later studied at NSCC Akerley Campus in Dartmouth where he received a Diploma in Business Hospitality receiving the Governor General Academic Medal. Before his illness, he was employed as Manager, Night Auditor, at the Westin Hotel in Halifax. His work found him living in various parts of Nova Scotia of which he loved touring with his canine friends. His passion for cars and driving became a treasured favorite for all his dogs which travelled many a mile with him. Grant was an avid reader and could engage in any topic of conversation. When he wasn’t at kidney dialysis, three days a week, he enjoyed his down time with movie watching and being a movie-buff, he could always quote a movie line. He enjoyed camping with his dogs and enjoyed summer picnics, not to mention he was constantly cooking and baking and loved making Christmas cookies which he always passed out during the holidays to his Home Care and Elder Dog family. He treasured his Elder Dog friends as they were a big part of his life during his illness. He was predeceased by his father Earl MacKay Fraser. He is survived by his mother Elizabeth Fraser (New Glasgow); sisters Charlotte Fraser (Halifax) and Margie Taylor (New Glasgow); nephews Nathan (Brigitte) Taylor (Ontario), and Christian (Amanda) Taylor (Saskatchewan); grandnephews Gabe Taylor and Nash Taylor and grandniece Madi Taylor and a grandniece on the way; as well an uncle and several cousins. No visitation at the request of the deceased. A graveside burial will be held at the Bridgeville Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Grant’s memory can be made to Elder Dog Canada (907 Feltzen South Road, RR#1 Rose Bay, NS B0J 2X0) or QEII Dialysis Unit.
