Obituary for James Frazier

James B. (Pop) Frazier, age 91 of Townsend, DE passed away peacefully at his home on Sunday, March 24, 2019, held by his loving family.

He was born on August 5, 1927, in Scottsboro, Alabama to Oscar & Lettie (Lemons) Frazier. Pop served in the U.S. Navy during World War II from 1943-1946. He then started as a bricklayer for C.O. Strouse & Co in Philadelphia for 21 years. The veterans hospital in Elsmere, DuPont Experimental Station in Wilmington, Brandywine High School, Newark High School, William Penn High School, and St. Francis Hospital in Wilmington were among the many job sites he worked on. In 1964 he started his own company J&B Caulkers in which he specialized in caulking and waterproofing, he retired after more than 35 years in 1992.

Pop loved spending time with his family and gained the most pleasure while gardening and coaching baseball/football for M.O.T. youth sports for many years. During his free time, you could catch him watching any Alabama Roll Tide game, or fishing with his best friend Donald Carden, and his son in law Harvey Straughn.
