Obituary for Joseph E. Fraser

Joseph E. Fraser
June 21, 1947 - April 16, 2019

Joseph E. Fraser (Joe) was born June 21, 1947 in Essequibo, Guyana, the second child of the late George Fraser and Mary Fraser. Joe attended St. Agnes Anglican School in Danielstown and Cambridge Academy in Georgetown, Guyana.

As a young man, Joe worked as a school teacher, police officer and security officer. In 1972, he met and later married Bhagwandai Ramcharran. The two started their married life in McDoom Village in Guyana.

Joe and his family moved from Guyana to the United States in 1979. In his professional life, he followed his passion for law enforcement, which ultimately led him to serve as a Correctional Officer with the State of Maryland for twenty-seven years, retiring in 2012 with the rank of Captain. He also had a love of carpentry, which he cultivated over the years to create beautiful furniture pieces that have indeed lasted a lifetime. When Joe wasn’t hard at work, he could be found on the ocean, off the coast of Maryland or Delaware, pursuing his love of fishing. During his retirement years, Joe spent several enjoyable years at his home in southwest Florida.

On April 16, 2019, his journey along the hills and valleys of this life came to an end. A lover of classical literature, he often liked to quote the poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” when describing his motivation to keep moving forward regardless of the obstacles he encountered -- “but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.”

Joe is survived by his loving wife Bhagwandai (Ramdai); children Angela, Alex and David; granddaughter Glenda (Kizzy), and great-granddaughter Soriah; siblings Eunice and Lydia (Baba); beloved in-laws, nephews, nieces and numerous extended family members across the United States, England and Guyana. He will also be remembered fondly by the many friends, acquaintances and professional colleagues that he valued and held in high regard.
