Gene L. Fraizer

December 22, 1943 ‒ February 08, 2008

Chesterville, Ohio

Gene L. Fraizer, 64, of Chesterville died early Friday morning, February 8, 2008 at the Morrow County Hospital.

He was born on December 22, 1943 in Richland County the son Helen Marie (Schmidt) Fraizer of Lucedale, Mississippi and the late John L. “Jack” Fraizer.

Gene was a graduate of the Chesterville High School class of 1961 and has been a member of the area community most of his life. After graduation he enlisted in the United States Navy, serving during the Vietnam War.

In 1971, he married Marjorie Fraizer. They were married for 14 years before her passing on August 30, 1985.

He was a jack-of-all trades, but worked many years for H.P.M. as a machinist and in maintenance.

Gene was a volunteer with the Chesterville Fire Department and enjoyed restoring old tractors, especially John Deere. He and his favorite ex-wife, Candy Rogers, previously ran the “Downtown Video Store” in Chesterville.

Before his stroke, you could find Gene and his buddies at Wendy’s, the truck stop, or the Dairy Bar for their daily coffee. His dry sense of humor would often catch you off guard and the words jokester and prankster were just a few words used to describe him.

Most importantly, Gene was a genuinely good guy and he would give you the shirt off his back, if that’s what you needed.

In addition to his mother he will be missed by his son Rob (Jenny) Fraizer of Chesterville and their two children Scott and Hannah,; brothers Jerold and Leslie Fraizer of Lucedale Mississippi and Jack (Deanna) Fraizer of Fredericktown; step sons Aaron (Heather) Rogers of Marengo, Mark Rogers of Marengo, and Cary Rogers of Houston, Texas; and his special friend Candy Rogers.

He was preceded in death by his father.
