Dr. F Clarke Fraser 1920 – 2014

Today our community has lost a giant of a man with deep roots in Bear River. Here is a tribute to him by filmmaker Tim Wilson.


Dr. Fraser was inducted into the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame in 2012. His acceptance speech, so characteristic of Clarke’s wit, irony and knowledge is read here by his son Noel.


Here is a short biography about Clarke’s medical achievements.

Our condolences go out to his wife Marilyn Preus, his children and family and his friends.

    In Tim Wilson’s short film, Dr. Clarke Fraser said his epitaph should be “He tried to be good”. He did good and he was good. Farewell, rest in peace.
