Remembering Don Fraser - Updated
Submitted By DWGHA News on Fri 01 22, 16
It is with a heavy heart that the DWGHA announces the passing of Past President, Don Fraser.

Don was part of the Durham West organization for many years. His daughters, Stephanie and Hilary, had the privilege to have their Dad coach them for many years with the Lightning.

The players who had the opportunity to play for Don were an extension of his family as well as their parents.




Along with being a coach, Don was a member of the executive committee as long as he was a coach, 
fulfilling various roles throughout including being the President for many years, then finally,
as Past President, the role he currently held.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Jen and their daughters Stephanie and Hillary
and the rest of Don's family.
