SHARE Obituary: Robert Anderson Frazer

1924 ~ 2003

I, Robert Anderson Frazer, was once of sound mind and body, but passed away on Sunday, September 7, 2003 at the age of 79 with pneumonia.

This is my short story. The long version was my life.

I was born in Maryland, to my parents David Leslie Frazer and Elanore Florence Anderson on June 26, 1924.

When I was a young boy, I came to live with my aunt, Madeleine Frazer Waldis. For many years, she was pretty much my best friend in life.

We lived in Salt Lake City, Utah for most of my life. Due to a chronic ailment, I was taken to the Fairview East Care Center in 1987. Not terribly long after that, my aunt passed away.

The staff at Fairview became my close friends, and were wonderful to me.

I was known as a gentle person. It's true, I was. The truth is, it never occurred to me that one should be another way. I always enjoyed a good chuckle, and my favorite type of humor was the pun. I enjoyed playing

Scrabble and Monopoly, and enjoyed the association of the people with whom I played. After all, Scrabble is no fun with only one person.

I am survived by cousins Sharon Aaron, Dan Waldis, Terry Richard Fausett, and (I think) James Edward Anderson, Blaine LeMar Anderson, Mary Kay Anderson Burgess, David Nielson Anderson, Paul Anthon Anderson, Laraine Anderson Robinson, Ramond "Will" Williams, Katheryn "Kitty" Fischer, and Scrabble partner Valerie Phipps. All my immediate family left before me.

A memorial service will be held for me at the Fairview East Care Center, 455 S. 900 E. The service will be on Monday, Sept. 15th at 2:30 p.m.

Family was assisted by Deseret Mortuary.
