Larry Michael Frazier, 53, passed away July 25, 2017, at Alaska Regional Hospital, Anchorage, after a very brief battle with cancer.
Larry was born May 17, 1964, in Renton, Wash. Larry met his teenage sweetheart, Sandra, in November 1979. They married July 11, 1986, in Anchorage and welcomed a baby girl in 1989. Julianna was and still is the light of her daddy's eyes.
In 2014, his first grandchildren were born, Margaret and Michael. He was the proudest grandfather. He was blessed with two more grandchildren in 2015, Abigail and Everett. He adored these children.
Larry was a mechanic with many certifications. When he had his own repair shop, you could call up, describe the noise and he could most always tell what was wrong. There was nothing he could not fix. During this time he was a vendor for Carlile and became an employee in 2001, working his way to shop manager.
He spent many years racing cars forming a team, Chevy Power, with his buddy, Don. Together they won many races and titles. He recently began building and running Yetti R.C. cars with his buddy Jeff. Though he doesn't drive anymore, he continues to be involved as Pit Boss for his brother John and his kids.
His family wrote: "Larry was the most loving husband, father and grandfather. He was a true and loyal friend to many .Larry will be remembered and missed by many. He will always be in our hearts."
