Fry was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on July 25, 1978. Fry is a right-handed shooter and delivers "tuck" style. Fry skipped a junior men's team to the 1996 Canadian Junior Curling Championships and 1997 Canadian Junior Curling Championships representing Manitoba. Fry skipped men's teams to the 2005 and 2006 Manitoba Safeway Select (playdown to the Brier) and joined Jeff Stoughton's team playing third for the 2006–07 season.
Fry left the Stoughton rink in 2008 to play for Brad Gushue's team in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. Fry won the 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Newfoundland and Labrador Tankards with the team, and represented Newfoundland and Labrador at the 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Briers. Fry played with Gushue until moving to Sault Ste. Marie to play with Jacobs in 2012.Fry won his first The Dominion Northern Ontario Men's Curling Championship in 2013 with Jacobs and represented Northern Ontario at the Brier for the first time in 2013. This tied Earle Morris's record for most provinces represented at the Brier (at three; a feat which has since been duplicated by Earle's son John). Fry won the Brier with Northern Ontario and represented Canada at the 2013 Ford World Men's Curling Championship where the rink won a silver medal.
Team Jacobs with Fry still at third would lose the 2015 Brier final to Team Canada (skipped Pat Simmons), win a bronze at the 2016 Brier, and lose the bronze medal game to Mike McEwen at the 2017 Brier.
Fry attended the University of Manitoba where he graduated with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration. He is currently in a relationship with Jessica Szabo. He currently works as an account specialist in corporate partnerships for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
