Richard Fraser Obituary

Richard R. “Dick”  Fraser, a retired Landscape Architect, passed away on Wednesday, February 14th, at the age of 93.  He was husband of the late Geradine Fraser, father of daughter Lee Fraser and the late Robert Fraser, and grandfather of Beau Fraser.

Richard was born in Norwood in 1930, the son of Harry and Helen Fraser.  He was raised and educated in Norwood, graduating from Norwood High School with the Class of 1948.  After high school he attended University of Massachusetts in Amherst, where he received his degree in Civil Engineering.    He then served in the Army during the Korean War.  He was a platoon leader with the Army Corps of Engineers, and after serving honorably, was discharged in 1961 having attained the rank of Second Lieutenant.  After his discharge he returned to the Boston area.  While raising his two children in Walpole as a single father, he worked as a landscape architect in Boston by day, and was a little league coach, then umpire in the evenings for many years.

Dick and his wife Gerry moved to Dennisport on Cape Cod where he was a volunteer at the local senior center.  He also delivered Meals on Wheels for 20 years.

 In the 50’s, Dick was a member of the Norwood Curtain Timers theatre group.  HE was an avid Red Sox and Cleveland Browns fan, living and breathing both teams through thick and (mostly) thin.  He loved humor and remembered hundreds of jokes, who told him the jokes, and the approximate year when he heard them. Art was another passion, Dick was a published illustrator of several books, a cartoonist, and a creator of greeting cards.  He will be terribly missed.

All services for Dick will be private.
