Gene D. Frazier

Gene Douglas Frazier, 37, of Wheelock, Texas passed away unexpectedly on April 10, 2023 after suffering a heart attack.

He was born in Torrance, California on December 20, 1985, the eldest of three brothers. During his childhood, he attended schools in California, Georgia, and Alabama. He enjoyed playing youth baseball and soccer. In middle school and high school, he played trombone in the Marching Band, earning 1st Chair his junior and senior years. Gene was an active Cub Scout and Boy Scout from Tiger Cubs in 1st grade all the way to becoming an Eagle Scout in 12th grade. He attended the National Scout Jamboree in 2001 and the National Lutheran Youth Gathering in 2003. He was a 2004 graduate of Sparkman High School in Harvest, Alabama. One highlight of his high school years was participating in a People-to-People Ambassador trip to Italy, France, and Spain, where he fought a bull at a bullfighting school and took lessons in Italian cooking from a professional chef.

His experiences kindled a desire to attend Culinary School; a natural-born leader, Gene decided to not only learn to become a chef, but to learn the business side of a restaurant. He earned a BS in Culinary Arts Management from Virginia College in Birmingham, Alabama. His internship was spent at the Four Points Sheraton, adjoining the Birmingham Convention Center, where he learned all aspects of hotel management and focused on banquet management.

After graduation, he worked as an Assistant Manager for Logan’s Steakhouse in Huntsville, Alabama and later an Assistant Manager for Domino’s at Fort Lewis in Tacoma, Washington. Due to his hard work and performance results, Gene was promoted to Store Manager of the Fort Lewis location at the age of 27. Sometime later, after a disagreement with the franchisee management, Gene decided to return to the Southeast U.S. and rejoined his family who were living in Louisiana. A natural businessman, in recent years, Gene used the computer and internet to buy and sell collectibles and digital currencies with an uncanny sense for market timing.

Gene loved playing games of all kinds with friends and family, forming deep friendships with many people across the country over their shared hobbies. He was generous, kind-hearted, and fiercely loyal to his friends and family. A man of innumerable interests, Gene enjoyed attending Renaissance Festivals in Georgia, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Texas, and will be missed by many of the vendors who considered him a friend.  

Gene is preceded in death by his grandparents, George (Doug) and Barbara Frazier, and several great-aunts and great-uncles.

He is survived by his grandparents, Ellis and Shirley (Lee) Winkler; parents, Glenn and Terry Frazier; brothers, Gary (wife, Marie-Pier) Frazier and Grant Frazier; niece, Eleanor Frazier; aunts and uncles, Wanda Eanes, Sandra and David Estes, Greg & Mary Frazier, and Sheila & Ted Vaughen; cousins, Carolyn Carlile, Michelle Devereaux, Emily Eanes, Eric Estes, Patrick Estes, Melissa Percy, Teddy Vaughen and Tyler Vaughen; great-aunts and great-uncles, Bob and Ethel Buchta, Peggy Cypert, Tom Rupnow, and Flo Winkler; as well as many dear friends.
