George Stilson “Stilly” Fraser, 77, who was the proprietor of the popular Aquatic Club at Villa for many years, died on November 22, after a long battle with cancer.

Fraser was buried at the Byera cemetery after a funeral service at the St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church at Colonarie on Wednesday.

For many years, Fraser’s club was this country’s main entertainment centre, and on weekends, all roads led to the Aquatic Club where fetes, featuring local bands and artistes, as well as regional performers were held.

Fraser, who resided at Prospect, was born in Byera on March 20, 1935. He was the brother of prominent businessmen O.A. “Ken” Boyea, Calvert “Cally” Boyea, Keith Boyea, Ambassador Betty Boyea-King and businesswoman Ann Joshua.

He also leaves to mourn several children, grandchildren, other relatives and friends.
