Fraser Wallace Smith – 94, Middleton, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, at Valley Regional Hospital, Kentville. Born in Brookside, Colchester County, he was a son of the late Harry and Minnie (McCabe) Smith and step-son of the late Cecil St. Clair Archibald.

Fraser worked as a Civil Servant with the Federal Government as a Chief Stationary Engineer at DND, CFS Barrington, Baccaro, Nova Scotia. An avid outdoorsman, he remained active until age 91, hunting, fishing, four wheeling and keeping horses. He followed hockey and cheered on his favourite team, The Pittsburgh Penquins, and everyone in the house knew when they scored a goal! He enjoyed going for drives on the backroads and telling stories of the past to whoever was with him. He and his best friend Bobo travelled the roads, checking out the sights and sipping on their coffees, always a double-double for Bobo!

Fraser is survived by his children, Bona Hayward, Truro; Donna Severance, Spirit River, Alberta; Allan (Audrey) Smith, Dartmouth; Brenda Bower, High River, Alberta; Cecil (Barbara) Smith, Lockeport; Barbara Smith-LeBlanc, Wilmot, Annapolis County; Amanda Lynn (Douglas) Halliday, Nictaux; his sister, who is the last surviving sibling, Ada Redmond, Middle Musquodoboit; sister-in-law, Barbara Smith, Truro; several grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
