Rev. Lloyd Earl Frazier
Rev. Lloyd Earl Frazier, age 87, of Cleveland, Tennessee, went home to be with Jesus on Monday, May 22, 2023.
He was born in Woodlawn, Va. on Aug. 29, 1935, and at the age of 28, with his wife and two children, came to Cleveland to attend Lee College. He graduated in 1967 after which he, Edna, and the kids began a life of missionary work with the Church of God - first in Guatemala, then in Panama for 12 years. After studying for his Master of Divinity, they spent over 22 years in Haiti. He was a pastor, educator, builder, church administrator, and overseer who started out only wanting to lead Bible Schools and train pastors.
He was a wonderful husband to Edna for 68 years, and was a loving, supportive father. His grandchildren looked to Papa and Nana as the ultimate example of a godly marriage with love exemplified. He has been an example to so many as a life-long Christ follower.
He inherited a legacy of prayer from his mother, Martha. He was often found to be up in the middle-of-the-night praying over a long list of family members and the nation of Haiti. Those prayers will undoubtedly impact generations to come.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Henry and Martha (Davidson) Frazier; and siblings, Adeen (Elrige) Sumner, Dorothy (Arkie) Utt, Dale (Mavis) Frazier, Zona (John) Briggs, Grace (Billy) Smythers, R.C. Frazier; brother-in-law, Donald Hanks; and, son-in-law, Randy Wilson.
He is survived by his wife Edna; son, Michael (Rhonda) Frazier of Smyrna; daughter, Mava Wilson of Cleveland; grands and greats Chuck (Alli) Norton, Winston and Adelaide; Becky (Michael) DuBose, Parker, Colton, Aiden, and Maddie; Jennifer Norton; Daniel (Jennifer) Frazier, Arden; Andrew (Molly) Frazier; Susanna (James) Gunn, Ellison, Wyatt, and Owen; brothers & sisters, Kyle (Katherine) Frazier, Herbert (Jewell) Frazier, Edith Frazier, Fern Hanks, Glenna (Dean) Winesett; sister-in-law, Nora Frazier; and numerous nieces and nephews.
The celebration service will be on Friday, May 26, at 1 p.m. at Westmore Church of God with Pastor Kelvin Page, Reverend Robert McCall, Reverend Jerry Johnson, Becky DuBose and Pastor Wendell Smith officiating.
Interment will follow in the Mt. Olive Cemetery with grandsons Chuck Norton, Michael DuBose, Daniel Frazier, Andrew Frazier, James Gunn and nephew, Steven Sena serving as casket bearers.
