Bobby "Gene" Frazier, age 84, died at "The Gardens", senior living center, in Richardson, Texas on April 7th 2014.
Gene was born in Altus, Oklahoma, March 3, 1930, to Eva (Weatherman) Frazier Fuqua and Claude S. Frazier. He grew up in Altus and graduated from Altus High School in 1948. He married Wanda Joye Roden, in Altus, on June 24, 1949. Gene worked for Halliburton as a seismographer in New Mexico and Texas for several years. In the early 60's Gene and Joye moved back to Altus where he owned and operated Gene's Exxon Service Station on North Main Street for many years. Shortly after his wife's death in December 1975, he moved from Altus. Gene married Hazel Nedro, of Altus, on December 7, 1979, in El Paso, Texas. Gene worked for Truck Stops Of America in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Las Cruses, New Mexico, Wheeling West Virginia and Memphis, Arkansas as the terminal manager for several years. Gene had an opportunity to go to work for Bright Transportation Corporation, in 1988, in St. Louis, Missouri and was later promoted to head the insurance department at the home office in Dallas, Texas. Gene retired in 2001, after many years, to enjoy his golden years. Gene loved the outdoors and was a golfer and loved to work in the yard, but his biggest love was flying.
