Fralic, Cecil Frederick, 84, of Milton, Queens County, formerly of Cornerbrook, Newfoundland, passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 9th, 2014, in Queens General Hospital, Liverpool, after a short illness.

 Cecil was the last surviving member of his immediate family. Born in Beach Meadows, on January 14th, 1930, he was a son of the late Andrew and Maude (Pye) Fralic.

 In Cecil’s earlier years, he worked in the woods at the game sanctuary in Liscombe, Guysborough County. He then worked a short time at the Bowater Mersey Paper Plant as a stevedore, before going to sea. He served on the many Bowater Mersey Paper Ships, spending his last nine years on “The Vinland”. He then worked on the Tug Boat, “Sandy Lake”, as Mate Chief, for a short time before captaining the tug boat, “The Indian Lake”. Cecil also sailed on the Gypsum Boats, out of Hantsport. After retiring from the sea, he worked for over 25 years as an auto body mechanic at the Cornerbrook Garage Body Shop, until his retirement. He had many hobbies, some of his favorites were, listening to old western music, sitting around and strumming his guitar, going to variety shows, card parties, playing crib, and in his younger years he enjoyed camping, fishing, and traveling around the countryside. Cecil was a member of the Activity Seniors Club, Liverpool, and the Cornerbrook Echo Seniors Club.

 He is survived by his loving wife, the former Emily White; granddaughters Melissa Fralic, Kristen Fralic; grandsons Cory Fralic, Eric Fralic, all from Ontario; stepdaughters Cindy Hanley, Annette White; stepson Allan White; several nieces, nephews and cousins.

 He was predeceased by his first wife, the former Margaret Oxford; son, Eric; sisters, Effie Pace, Goldie Barkhouse, Ida Meisner, Lena Hawes, Florence Dexter, Hilda Cross; brothers Ross and Lee.

 Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool.

We were sorry to hear of Cecil’s passing. Doris always enjoyed a visit from Cecil when he was home from Newfoundland and in the last few years from Cecil and Emily. During berry season Cecil always arrived with a quart of bright red strawberries for her to enjoy. He will be missed. May he rest in peace.
