Obituary of Clifford Lloyd Fraser

Please share a memory of Clifford to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Clifford Lloyd Fraser age 65, of River St., Stellarton passed away on November 20, 2022 in the QEII Health Sciences Centre, VG Site. Born in New Glasgow he was a son of the late Donald and Stacia (Grimaldi) Fraser. Clifford was born in New Glasgow but was raised in Rexdale, Ontario. At a very young age of 15 Clifford entered the wrestling circuit, where he wrestled all over the United States and Canada. He was trained by Whipper Billy Watson and worked with many promoters over the years ending in the Maritimes with Emile Dupree. He wrestled beside world-wide wrestling stars such as Andre the Giant, Macho Man Randy Savage and so many more. He was inducted into the Pictou County Sports Hall of Fame. Clifford often wrestled in the Berwick arena where he met a valley girl named Kim who would become the love of his life, they eventually married and had three sons and a daughter. He has an older brother and sister who he was very close with and were always there for him. Clifford’s family meant the world to him. He always said he was one lucky man. He began working with Dave Mackenzie in the tire business who became like a second father to him. He was employed for several years at the landfill site. He worked for F & L contracting owned by Freddie Fraser for a number of years. He then went to Riverview Home Corporation where he worked for 18 years until he had to retire early due to health. He loved the time he spent there with the staff and clients. He formed many great friendships with Bill, Fred, Angela and many more too numerous to mention, including a very special friendship with his client Doug Campbell. He had lifelong friendships with Mack and Kenda Rice and Gail and Freddie Fraser. After retirement he enjoyed many visits on the deck having coffee with his friends and co-workers. He liked working on cars or working on small projects in his garage. Clifford enjoyed walking with the dog, fishing and photography. He was an incredibly hard worker and liked being outdoors mowing the lawn or shovelling snow. When his health declined he would sit on the deck drinking tea/coffee soaking up the rays of the sun. Clifford was very close with all his children, but he had an extra special bond with his granddaughter Mylie. Clifford was the kindest most humble man one could ever meet. He had a great sense of humour playing many tricks on friends and family over the years. He never let his size stand in the way of anything he wanted to accomplish. He was one of a kind and will be missed by all who knew him. He is survived by his wife Kimberley (Hutt); children Andrew Fraser (Lisa Stewart), Leanna Fraser (Nick MacIntosh), Blair (Jillian) Fraser, and Shelby Fraser (Amber Murphy); grandson Anthony; granddaughters Mylie and Lily; brother George (Marilyn) Fraser; sister Ellen (Jimmy) Atwood. Clifford was predeceased by his parents Donald and Stacia Fraser. A public graveside service will be held at 2 pm on Saturday, November 26, 2022 in the Lorne Cemetery.
