John Charles Fraser


John Charles Fraser passed away on July 21, 2020. He will be missed by his family and countless friends he made over the years. John grew up in Dorchester, MA, before meeting his wife of 38 years, Noreen. John and Noreen raised their family in West Milford, NJ, before relocating to Wilmington, NC in 2005.

John was the son of the late Charles and Ruth Fraser. He leaves behind his wife, Noreen, and four children: Danielle (spouse to Jourdan), Sean (spouse to Colleen), Keith (spouse to Sarah), and Brian (spouse to Christine). He also leaves behind five beautiful grandchildren: Chloe, Caleb, Nolan, Blake, and Silas. Saddened by his loss are many nephews, nieces, brothers and sisters-in-law, and friends.
Known for his love of sports, family gatherings, and days at the beach, John will be remembered for his love of others, many years of coaching, and the legacy he leaves behind in his children and grandchildren. He was a member of the United States Army and enjoyed volunteering at the Wilson Center and the American Red Cross.

A visitation is planned for July 25 from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. at Pine Valley Baptist Church. Immediately following, there will be a short prayer service and eulogy. All are welcomed to attend. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina.

    The Yuhas Family would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Noreen, Danielle, Sean, Keith and Brian. John was a stand-up guy and dedicated father. Watching the kids playing in our combined yards are some of the fondest memories that neighbors can have. Looking across the gravel road towards the Fraser's house always brings back happy times. May John enjoy those happy memories of a young family on Monique Lane and may John rest in peace.

    One of our many fond memories with John and Noreen was when we took a cruise in 2009. We had a drink at "Atlantis" and joked on how our drinks cost more than the watches we purchased on the cruise ship, We will always cherish our time together. We will miss him. Love you all!
