Russell had a passion for many sports in Clarenville. During his involvement, his vision, leadership, dedication and hard work in minor, high school, junior, intermediate and senior hockey were unparalleled in the Clarenville area and resulted in outstanding growth in the game of hockey in all categories.

During his executive time in minor hockey, he held positions as treasurer, stadium canteen manager, midget division chairperson, Midget all-star coach, and minor hockey referee-in-chief. In 1974, Frazer became assistant coach of the Clarenville Junior Caribous which in that year defeated Gander Junior to claim a gold medal at the first Newfoundland and Labrador Winter Games.  Frazer was instrumental in obtaining and delivering the 2015 Allan Cup Championship to Clarenville.

While hockey was a passion, Frazer channelled his abilities and focus to many projects away from the game, but still hockey related. He spearheaded efforts in the mid 70s to purchase a Zamboni for the Clarenville rink. A little more than 20 years later, he was appointed the chair of a committee looking to replace the old Clarenville stadium. $18 Million and 8 years later, that dream came to fruition.

In case that wasn’t enough, Frazer’s love for his community saw him serve as mayor, be named Citizen of the Year, and Chair of the Dr. G.B. Cross Memorial Hospital.
