Lloyd Earl Frazier

Rev. Lloyd Earl Frazier, age 87, of Cleveland, Tennessee, went home to be with Jesus on Monday, May 22, 2023.

He was born in Woodlawn, Virginia on August 29, 1935, and at the age of 28, with his wife and two children, came to Cleveland to attend Lee College. He graduated in 1967 after which he, Edna, and the kids began a life of missionary work with the Church of God, first in Guatemala, then in Panama for 12 years. After studying for his Master of Divinity, they spent over 22 years in Haiti. He was a pastor, educator, builder, church administrator, and overseer who started out only wanting to lead Bible Schools and train pastors.

He was a wonderful husband to Edna for 68 years, and was a loving, supportive father. His grandchildren looked to Papa and Nana as the ultimate example of a godly marriage with love exemplified. He has been an example to so many as a life-long Christ follower.

He inherited a legacy of prayer from his mother, Martha. He was often found to be up in the middle-of-the-night praying over a long list of family members and the nation of Haiti. Those prayers will undoubtedly impact generations to come.

He is survived by his wife Edna; son, Michael (Rhonda) Frazier of Smyrna; daughter, Mava Wilson of Cleveland; grands and greats Chuck (Alli) Norton, Winston and Adelaide; Becky (Michael) DuBose, Parker, Colton, Aiden, and Maddie; Jennifer Norton; Daniel (Jennifer) Frazier, Arden; Andrew (Molly) Frazier; Susanna (James) Gunn, Ellison, Wyatt, and Owen; brothers & sisters, Kyle (Katherine) Frazier, Herbert (Jewell) Frazier, Edith Frazier, Fern Hanks, Glenna (Dean) Winesett; sister-in-law, Nora Frazier; and numerous nieces and nephews.
