Simon Fraser died suddenly on Tuesday, May 16, 2017.

A retired Sergeant of Toronto Police of over 28 years, Simon leaves behind his beloved partner, Dawn Pentesco, the mother of his children, Tracey Fraser, sons Callum (16) and Connor (13) and daughter Arwyn (10), Connie Quadrini, his mother, and Gavin Fraser, his brother. Simon is predeceased by his stepfather Filippo Quadrini and father Colin Fraser.

Simon received many accolades and awards while working for the Toronto Police Service including the Police Exemplary Medal in recognition of 20 years of loyal and exemplary service to law enforcement in Canada.

Simon was actively involved with Badge of Life Canada in a quest to address prevalent issues of PTSD within law enforcement and was recently featured in the Dave Mydlo – PTSD Documentary entitled First Responder – The Inner Battle, which aired on CHCH TV.

Simon’s angel and watcher Cassiel, his PTSD service dog, and the rest of his pack that include Reno, an Australian Shepherd, miss his hugs, paw massages and mostly his love.

Private Celebrations of his Life for family and close friends are being held Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at Devil’s Pulpit Golf Club, Caledon, Ontario at 3:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests memorial donations in his honour to Badge of Life Canada.
