Robert Lee "Bob" Frazier, Jr., 83, Kimberling City, MO, was born August 18, 1930 to Robert and Katie Frazier in Springhill, Louisiana. He went to be with the Lord on June 27, 2014 at Sonshine Manor in Republic, MO.
Bob served 2 hitches in the U.S. Army and decided not to make it a career because he wanted to get married and have a family. He did not feel military life was good for that.
Bob married Sue Farmer on Thanksgiving Day, November 27, 1952. They welcomed their only child, Christie in September of the next year.
Bob was an Ironworker. The family moved to Lake Worth, Florida in 1955 because of the work opportunities. He worked on many of the condos built on the beaches of South Florida, and also malls, schools, hospitals and office buildings. He retired in 1992.
He loved to fish and hunt. He and Sue liked to participate in archery target competitions and they also bowled many years on a church league. They enjoyed traveling and went on several river rafting trips through the Grand Canyon and in Alaska and the Yukon Territory. They also visited Scotland. They enjoyed fishing vacations, where they would go to different lakes around the country, trying to find one they would settle on for retirement. They decided on Table Rock Lake; had a house built in Kimberling City and moved there in 1993.
Bob and Sue were always active in church. Bob taught Sunday school and was a deacon.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents; and brother, Benny Frazier.
He is survived by his wife, Sue; daughter, Chris Cooper and husband Rick of Springfield; two granddaughters, Katie Lane and husband David of Fort Lauderdale, FL, and Kelly McKenzie and her husband Kareem of Lakenheath Air Force Base, England; six great-grandchildren, David, Jr. and Daryl Lane, and Isaac, Caleb, Naomi and Eden McKenzie; one sister, Karen Munson of West Palm Beach, FL; and many nieces and nephews.
