Donald Allan Fraser, 60, passed away on Friday, Oct. 24, 2014 at
Washakie Memorial Hospital in Worland after a courageous battle with
Don, “Donnie or Duck” to family and close friends, was born on Nov. 11, 1953 in Powell to parents H. Allan and Joyce L. (Minehart) Fraser.
Don attended schools in Worland and two years at the University of Wyoming. After college he learned to build houses from Roy Martin and continued working as a carpenter for a number of years. After working and living briefly in Douglas, he moved back home to Worland and worked for many years in road construction.
After what seemed a lifetime of waiting, Don married his best friend, Maura Salzman on Feb. 29, 2004 in Laughlin, Nevada and began a settled and happy life being home with his family. He and Maura spent their years together enjoying each other’s company, traveling when they could, and spending hours working and enjoying their yard.
Don loved a good game of cribbage and spent many hours playing with family and friends. He also loved to go fishing and hunting. He was an excellent fisherman. However, he hunted with the same two bullets for many years, enjoying the camaraderie of hunting camp more than the hunt. Always a numbers man, Don spent his early morning coffee time with a Sudoku puzzle. The more challenging the puzzle, the better he liked it.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his brother-in-law, Bill McGregor; and his nephew, William McGregor.
Don is survived by his wife, Maura; by Maura’s daughters, Cassie (Dan) Kaelin and Terra Barnes (Chris Bundren); by his sisters, Cathy McGregor, Caryn (Brad) Agee and Cammy Rodeman; by his brothers–in-law, Ken Rodeman and Bernard (Diana) Salzman; by his nephews, Corey McGregor, Trent Agee and Joseph Salzman; and his nieces, Alexis Salzman and Jessie (Mike) Balaszi and their daughters, Carsen, Cobie and Caedie; and by grandchildren, Janie and Lane Barnes.
There will be no services as Don requested. The family will have a private gathering.
Memorials may be made in Don’s memory to Wyoming Disabled Hunters at P.O. Box 2232, Cody, Wyoming 82414, an organization co-founded by Don’s nephew, Corey.
