It is with great sadness that the family of Fraser (Dinty) O'Shaughnessy announces his passing, peacefully, on Monday, May 13th on his 90th birthday. Fraser will be lovingly remembered by his dear wife of 65 years, Rosemary (Nina) and his children, Bob (Carol), Tom (Sue), Mary Beth (Gord), Peggy Lynn (Dan), and Gerry (Diane). Fraser will also be fondly remembered by his thirteen grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, and his brother Mike and sister in-law Lynn. Fraser was predeceased by his brother Murray and sister Jean. Fraser will also be forever remembered by his numerous nieces, nephews and extended family and dear friends.
Fraser had a long and varied career with Air Canada which included Properties & Facilities, Corporate Real Estate, the opening of Mirabel Airport and the AC Cargo Facility where he was in charge of the AC-HDQ move from Place Ville Marie (PVM) to Place Air Canada. Fraser’s involvement with the Pionairs included Regional Director, Second Vice President, First Vice President and eventually President. We all remember September 11, 2001, it was his first day as the Pionairs' President. He also continued on in this role during CCAA and fought for protecting the benefits that Pionairs had earned for their employment service to Air Canada. While being an Air Canada Pionair and an executive of the organization, he enjoyed the wonderful people he met, the meetings and events that he participated in and the work that needed to be addressed.
