Madera mourns Stephen Frazier
For The Madera Tribune
Stephen Lloyd Frazier.
Stephen Lloyd Frazier was born in Turlock, CA, on March 13, 1947, to Lloyd and Grace Frazier. He grew up in a typical post WWII 1950s family, playing baseball, joining Boy Scouts, a church youth group, and mowing lawns (sometimes for 50 cents, and sometimes because his Dad told him to).
There were lots of backyard barbecues with family, neighbors, and friends, and rustic old cabins to restore in Ben Lomond, where work and play became one.
Stephen was a high school football standout and played at Modesto Junior College and San Francisco State. His smile was contagious, earning him the title in his senior yearbook of “Cutest Smile.” He enjoyed being in the “Ports” car club too.
