Bobby Lee Frazier, 79, a McMinnville resident and Warren County native, was born Sept. 14, 1941 and died Jan. 26 at his residence following an extended illness.
He was the retired owner of Frazier’s BP, a member of Mt. Leo Church of Christ, and the son of the late William Marion and Carrie Josephine Austin Frazier. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 59 years Carolyn Faye Roberts, son-in-law Clifford “Dickie” Morton, grandparents Alfred and Martha Bonner Frazier, and Joseph Edward and Rachel Medley Austin, sisters Mildred Lorance, Martha Taylor, and Mary Lytle, brothers Doyle Frazier, and John Mullins, brothers-in-law Lee Lorance, Plas Taylor, and Beecher Lytle, and sister-in-law Marie Crouch Frazier.
Mr. Frazier is survived by two daughters, Sandra Frazier McMillen, and Jennifer Lee Frazier Morton, two grandchildren, Beth McMillen Harris, and Selina McMillen, six great-grandchildren, Omari, Jerren, Korbyn, and Samara Harris, and India and Dallas Burgess, sister Jo Ann Frazier (Charles) Hall, brother Bill Mullins, all of McMinnville, sisters-in-law Myra Lytle, and Beverly Keith, and brother-in-law Kenny Roberts. Several nieces and nephews also survive.
Mr. Frazier was an avid sports player of fast-pitch softball with a CB handle of “Bullett” and was extremely competitive. He was a member of his high school class annual staff, where his classmates called him “Travis.”
Starting out in Morrison as a teenager, he was a great mechanic and used car salesman, and great businessman. He worked all his life pumping gas and turning wrenches, a goodhearted man who would give his little sister a nickel for an ice cream cone at lunch. He loved his wife and family.
