Larry aka Papa, Fuzz, Whitey, and Dad, was born on Friday December 27, 1935. When Papa came home from the hospital and Grandpa Arthur Frazier asked what his siblings wanted to call him, his sister Betty popped up and said “Johnny Jump Up” Papa went to be with his savior, dance and sing with his love, Delores Jean (Poorman) Frazier, on July 16, 2017 at Northern Colorado Medical Center in Greeley, CO. He suffered a short battle with lung and liver cancer surrounded by his adoring family.
Larry was born in Colorado General Hospital in Denver, CO to Arthur and Freida Frazier from south of Strasburg, CO. On July 5, 1958 Larry married his sweetheart Delores at the courthouse in Hugo, CO. They were parted by God’s master plan when Delores passed away on May 6, 2009. A few years later, Larry met Betty Weidenkeller who was his love until June 16, 2017 when the Lord took her home also. Larry was preceded in death by his parents and brothers Don and Roland, Sisters Annabelle, Marvis. He is survived by his sons, Martin “Marty” Frazier (Barbara Harrison), Randy Frazier, sisters Norma Nabors of Mesa, AZ, and Betty Ramey of Sterling, CO, two grandsons, Riley Frazier-Kelley (Brittany Hood), Karson Frazier, and granddaughter Kylee Frazier, great grandchildren Hailey Jo and Riley Janae. He is survived by numerous nieces and nephews and many loving friends.
Larry served the United States Army twice once during the Korean War (1960), stationed in Ft. Leonardwood, MO and the second tour at the beginning of Vietnam (1962), stationed in Ft. Carson in Colorado Springs, CO. At his honorable discharge he ranked SP 4 as a firefighter. He came home to farm for his mother when he lost his father in 1962. He farmed and worked a day job until the Frazier farm was sold in 1991. He worked for Elbert County Roads, Nichols Tillage Tools and Gilson Paving. Larry was a jack of all trades and a master of none. After the farm was sold he went to work for Rip Griffins in Limon, CO as a custodian where he retired in 1997.
Larry was a lifetime American Legion member. He was very patriotic, loved children, thoroughly enjoyed travelling and playing music. Wahoo was a paramount theme in his life and he loved teaching anyone he could to play. Much teasing and competition could be observed watching he and other Frazier family members play at the table. Larry played football for Simla High School and also in Korea with the Army. Larry had the gift of gab and thought everyone had a story to tell and he wanted to hear it and tell his right back.
The Funeral Service will be held Thursday, July 27, 2017 at 2:30pm, with visitation one hour prior, at Two Rivers Fellowship Church, 2424 23rd Avenue in Greeley.
