Gary David Frazier Jr., a man of unyielding resilience and unwavering dedication, left an indelible mark on the lives of everyone he touched. Born in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, on August 22, 1969, to parents Gary David Frazier and Susan Pagano. Gary spent most of his life in California, where he grew up across the street from Disneyland. His adventurous spirit and rebellious streak defined his teenage years, spent with a close-knit group of twenty friends Together, they shared countless memories,  from hanging out at Robs Mom's house to smoking and listening to music and watching Rob play drums. He loved his friends dearly and would tell us countless stories of all the good times they had.

Gary's sense of duty and patriotism led him to serve in the United States Navy during the Gulf War, where he bravely served aboard the USS Missouri as a firefighter. After his military service, Gary returned to Lebanon, where he met his first son, Taj Mavretic and married his mother. He became a devoted father and provider, always putting his family first .Taj has fond memories with his father skipping school to go fishing or camping at the Swatty. He loved hanging out with his cousins Lori and JonPaul and wished he would have made more time to as the years went by. A true jack-of-all-trades, Gary possessed a MacGyver-like ability to tackle any challenge, and his resourcefulness and determination inspired countless others. He enjoyed his work at Hersheypark where he painted the rollercoasters and waterslides etc...and definitely enjoyed the time spent creating memories he will never forget with his boss Ben Sholly. 

Gary's life took a new turn when he met Carla Liddle Minnich in 2014. Together, they built a beautiful life filled with love, laughter, and adventure. They found true love and were best friends thru thick and thin. They had three precious sons: Gary David Frazier III (born December 5, 2016), JonPaul Frazier Liddle (born October 26, 2020), and Keith Allen Liddle (born November 22, 2023). Even in his final weeks, Gary's love and dedication to his family shone through, as he built a bunk bed for his children using spare parts and a backyard slide. This was just two weeks before he found out he was sick with cancer in his brain, throat, and in between his heart and lung.

Gary's untimely passing on April 25, 2024, after a brief battle with lung cancer, has left a gaping hole in the lives of those who loved him. His family is devastated, and his children will deeply miss their father's guidance, love, support and laughter. Though his time with us was cut short, Gary's legacy will live on through Taj and his three young sons ,  the countless lives he touched and the family he loved so dearly.
