L. Fraser Steenson – Vancouver Island Free Daily


L. Fraser Steenson

In loving memory~
L. Fraser Steenson was born in St. Boniface, Manitoba on December 3, 1946. The family traveled to Vancouver via stops in Saskatoon, where his brother Murray was born, and Calgary.
After completing his studies in Vancouver, he joined the Canadian Army in May 68. His military career took him from coast to coast with stops in Shearwater, NS. – Sea King helicopters (1971-1974), Moose Jaw – Tutor Jet Instructor (1974-1979) and Base Rescue Single Huey (1982-1985).
Fraser’s last flying tour was in Portage la Prairie as an instructor on the Jet Ranger (1988-1991) before retiring from the military in Calgary in 1994.
What Fraser was most proud of was his family. It was in Shearwater, N.Ş. that he met and married the love of his life, Beverly. They were married for 50 years. Fraser was a proud father of 2 sons, Ron and Troy.
After retirement, Bev and Fraser bought a large fifth wheel and traveled south each year for the winters. They retired full time to Campbell River. Here they built 2 houses and were co-administrators of the local food bank for 11 years. Additionally, Fraser was also the commanding officer of the Air Cadet Squadron.
Fraser is survived by his wife Bev, his sons Ron (Leslie) and Troy (Kath), his grandchildren Braeden, Ella and Cooper, his brother Murray and his wife Sue.
A celebration of life is planned at the Dolphins Resort, Campbell River, on October 23, from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Fraser will be interred at Victory Gardens Cemetery at a later date.
