Posted in General Commentary by Jake Ward on January 2, 2011


It is with a sense of deep sadness that we must report that our partner, mentor, colleague and friend, Donald R. Fraser, passed away on December 28, 2010 in Ft. Myers, Florida after a brief illness. He was 83 years old.

Don Fraser had a distinguished career as a patent attorney that spanned more than 50 years. He was committed to the profession, his clients, the firm and its people, his colleagues, and to his many friends, and was very active in professional, civic, and charitable matters.

He is survived by his wife of over 50 years, Caroline, his son and two grandchildren. His was truly a life well lived and he will be greatly missed.
