Andrew C. Fraizer
April 13, 1924 ‒ September 29, 2003
Andrew C. Fraizer, 79, of 798 Boyd Blvd., Galion died Monday, September 29 at home after an extended illness.
Born April 13, 1924 in Cardington, Ohio, he was the son of the late John Willis Fraizer and Imo Estella Gibbons Fraizer.
He married Sarah Jane Frazier on March 22, 1946. She preceded him in death October 23, 2001.
He served in the United States Marine Corps during World War II from 1942 to 1944 where he was parachuter. He was an expert rifle marksman and a bayonet expert. He worked at the former North Electric in Galion where he was maintenance supervisor. He enjoyed 29 years of retirement and liked being an active member of Free Methodist Church in Galion. Andy loved to keep busy working. He had a shop behind his house and enjoyed woodworking. When someone would visit him there, he would always take the time to show them the projects he was working on or the interesting tools he invented. He could fix anything. He liked golf, but while at the golf course he would actually spend more time looking for used golf balls, that would make his day when he made a sale, than he did golfing. The sign in his front yard says, “Golf Balls for Sale, No Sunday Sales”. He was a Christian and lived what he believed.
Surviving are his daughter and son-in-law, Dianna and Ken Klingelhafer, of Galion and his son and daughter-in-law, John W. and Patti Fraizer, of Columbus, four grandchildren, Cammie Honaker, John Fraizer, III, Michelle Steiner and Anthony Cardenas; five great-grandchildren and a sister, Trevelyn Holtrey, of Chesterville.
He was also preceded in death by 11 brothers and sisters.
