Michael Frazier

Michael (Mike) Thomas Frazier, 73, of Conway, AR, passed from his earthly home, November 12, 2019. Born on November 16, 1945 in Springfield, MO, he was preceded in death by his parents, Earl and Glenn Frazier, Clever, MO. Mike grew up in the country in Clever, MO, where he farmed, raised hogs and cattle, and milked cows daily. He learned to work hard and long, something he did his entire life. He was a standout basketball player in high school- the place where he learned to be a team player. What a team player he was and what a competitor. He would never quit, never fold until his objective was accomplished. Mike was strong physically and emotionally and strongly opinionated. He was fair and honest in all his affairs and well respected. He had a successful career in manufacturing, the last 25 years at Lawson Marden Thermaplate (Bemis) in Russellville, AR, where he was Site Manager. He was a Christian, a father, a husband and a good friend to many. His passions were his family, his dogs (Pumpkin, Hattie, and Roscoe), golf (Super Senior Club Champion at Centennial Valley Country Club 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015), sports, and his home. Recently a fellow team leader at Lily Tulip, Springfield, MO, wrote of him with these words that aptly describe him, although somewhat crudely: "You took no crap off of anyone. Several of us wish we had the balls to be our own person. Trust me there will never be another Mike Frazier. They broke the mold after they made you and I am proud to call you my friend." There will never be another Mike Frazier, that's a fact. Mike was his own person, one of a kind and never to be forgotten. Mike leaves to cherish his memory: loving wife, Diane Fisher Frazier; son, Chris (Lisa) Cadiz, KY; daughter, Lori Gough (Roger) Paducah, KY; stepsons Dan (Candace) Fisher, Maumelle, AR, and David Fisher, Atlanta, GA; sister, Judy (Steve) Walker, Bella Vista, AR; grandchildren, Lauren (Ezra) McNichols and Derek Frazier; and many relatives, former employees, golf buddies, and friends. A visitation will be held from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM Saturday, November 16, 2019 in Adams Funeral Home, Nixa. A celebration of life will follow at 11:00 AM in the funeral home. Burial will follow at Frazier Cemetery, Clever. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN, 38105

I have just recently heard of Mikes passing. I am flooded with memories as I sit here. I was one of the first 16 to start Thermaplate in Atkins. I was young and impressionable and Mike certainly made an impression on me. He was hard but fair. He accepted nothing but the best from those around him. He and I butted heads more than once but we always come out on the other end better for going through it. If he trusted you, he trusted you. If you did him wrong, you had a long row to hoe to get back in his good graces. It didn't matter if we were on the golf course, in a business meeting or traveling to visit a customer, he was always my mentor. Of all the bosses I've ever had, he was the best. He single handedly built Thermaplate and taught me how the perform in business. He was my boss, mentor and friend. I will definitely miss him. Jerry Mize

I am so sorry to learn of Mike's passing. Mike and I, along with his sister Judy, grew up together attending the Church of Christ on N. Main in Nixa. Somehow, I missed notification of his passing. My deepest sympathy to all who loved him. Myra (Mitchell) Massey

Mike was a good friend and you never had to worry if he was being honest with you. Rick McKinnis
