Michael Oliver Frazier was called home on Sunday, Feb. 19, 2023. Michael died at the Comprehensive Stroke Center at St. Luke’s Baptist Hospital in San Antonio, Texas, surrounded by caring friends, family, and hospital team members. Michael was born Nov. 23, 1947, in Fort Worth to Arlene and Harold Frazier.
He attended Burton Hill Elementary, Stripling Middle School, and Arlington Heights High School. His higher education was received from Tarleton State University in Stephenville, where he majored in accounting. During his career, he was a part of several retail companies including Bolen’s Bike Shop, Mitchell’s Department Stores, Suzanne’s Dress Shops, and Uniglobe Travel. He eventually retired from a long career with Pier One Imports.
Michael spent all of his childhood and most of his adult life in his beloved Westworth Village. He served on the city council during the 1990s. His Christmas light show on Popken provided much joy to the many residents who drove by the house. In 2007, he retired with his wife to La Vernia.
In Michael’s later years, he strove to live as Christ-like as he could. Because he knew and loved his Lord, he quietly provided needed services to his dear friends, his wife, family, and his church. He lived a simple life that was consistent with the integrity of the Word of God. Throughout his physical trials, he never stopped trying to live a productive life, to care for his family and serve his God. “Therefore, we do not give up. Even though our outer person is being destroyed, our inner person is being renewed day by day” (2 Corinthians 4:16).
He was preceded in death by his son, Nathan Frazier.
Michael is survived by his wife of 35 years, Karin; sons John and Chellie of Austin, Travis and Britney of Tacoma, Wash., and Brian of Fort Worth; five grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
