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.

    My memory of John was the loyalty he showed as a friend. As Kieth mentioned he loved to coach and I had the pleasure of coaching with him . At one point there were too many coaches and it was determined I would no longer be behind the bench. As much as he enjoyed coaching he would not continue without me Loyalty . That was my big brother John

    John and Noreen lived across the street from us for more than 10 years. John was the neighbor one could ask for. Friendly, affable, always smiling, and ready to help. We often attended events at the Fraser house. John always spent time with each of his guests in the most welcoming way. Regrettably, due to busy lives and the pandemic we were unable to see John in the last couple of years. We fondly remember John attending our son's wedding in 2018. We think of John as an outstanding friend. We will miss and cherish him always. Jim and Victoria Green
