Jeffrey K. Frazier

May 1960 - Feb 2016

Great friend to many!



Jeff K. Frazier Jeffrey Kurt Frazier was raised in the military and lived in Germany, Italy, Alabama, and Missouri. His family settled in Florida, and he attended Maynard Evans High School, graduating in 1978. Upon graduation he immediately enlisted in the United States Air Force and served our country as a Security Police Officer in Germany. At the conclusion of his military duty, Jeff moved back to Florida and put himself through the Police Academy. He was hired by the Altamonte Springs Police Department and served on the Seminole County SWAT Team and Bomb Squad. In 1991, Jeff married Michele, the love of his life. Their son, Dallas, was born in 1992 and was one of Jeff’s greatest joys in life. He poured his all into raising Dallas to be a son who made him most proud.

Jeff was an accomplished motorcycle rider and loved riding his Honda Goldwing every chance he could. He loved traveling and years ago decided that he and his wife were not going to wait until retirement to enjoy life. Each year he took his wife to Germany to visit with his family and tour the country where he grew up.

After leaving the police department, Jeff owned and operated a swimming pool plumbing business for over 20 years. Due to his health and surgeries, Jeff closed his business in 2014 but was fortunate to have found his third career in life: Vice President of Operations for Bob's Pools and Screens.

Friendship and Family were not just words to Jeff Frazier; he made friendships that lasted decades. When he married his wife, Michele, he inherited a large family and never considered them "in-laws"; they were truly his brothers and sisters. Jeff was a believer in Christ and for many years served as a Sunday School Teacher and as a Deacon in his church. His belief in our Lord and Savior was his compass, and his life was a reflection of his walk with Jesus.

Jeff was a man of integrity, honor, and faith. He was committed to serving his community, his country, and his family.

Jeff fought cancer the last 19 months the same way he lived his life, with courage and determination. He worked right up until the day he was hospitalized.

Jeffrey is survived by his wife of 25 years, Michele Martin Frazier, and his son, Dallas Wayne Frazier.
