William Frazer, who spent many years campaigning for innocent victims of the troubles at the hands of the IRA, funeral will take place later this afternoon.
Mr Frazer (58) passed away at the end of last week after a long battle with cancer.
Losing five members of his family to the troubles, William dedicated a large portion his life to campaigning for the rights of innocence victims and bringing those responsible to account.
Many have paid tribute to Mr Frazer including the DUP leader Arleen Foster who said;
“William had more pain and grief imposed upon him during his life than anyone should ever have to experience.
There can be no doubt that the brutal murder of five family members, including his father, shaped and defined his life. William dedicated himself to fighting for victims of the republican terrorism he experienced so personally growing up in South Armagh.
William was fiercely independent and never afraid to speak his mind.“
The Funeral for Mr Frazer today (Monday 1st July) will take place at Five Mile Hill Pentecostal Church, Mountnorris and will commence at 2.15pm.
The funeral will leave the family home in Markethill at 12.45pm.
House and funeral open for those who wish to attend. Burial will take place in adjoining cemetery.
