Obituary: Raymond A. Frazier, 70

Raymond A. Frazier, 70, of Southington (formally of Meriden) went to be with the Lord on Saturday July 15th 2017 at the Connecticut Veterans Hospital, surrounded by his family, after he fought a courageous battle with cancer.

Born on October 29, 1946 to the late Raymond and Martha (Patsky) Frazier, he proudly served his country in the US Army during the Vietnam Conflict. He worked as an automotive service director for many years. He then retired to pursue his passion for golf, working at the Southington County Club for the past ten years as a starter.

Raymond was an avid NY Giants fan. Ray also loved to cook and could often be found in the kitchen with his wife Sandy making a pot of his family favorite pasta sauce. One of his favorite pastimes was playing golf, and if he wasn’t on the golf course, he was strumming his guitar and singing with family and friends.

Raymond is survived by his beloved wife of 32 years Sandra (Clark) Frazier. In addition, he is survived by his children Brittany Joy of Suffield, Raymond and his wife, Jenel Frazier of Southington, Lisa and her husband Dean Rodrigue of Southington and Kristin Donovan of Southington, his eight grandchildren, Alexandra, Victoria, Chantel, Madison, Angelo, Ariana, Alvero and his newborn granddaughter Aria; and his mother-in-law, Shirley Clark.

Raymond will be remembered for his sense of humor, his love of family and most of all as a man who loved the Lord.

Ray was a father to many, a husband to one, and a light to all who knew him.
