David D. Frazier, age 47, of Williams Bay, WI, passed away Saturday Dec. 28, 2013, at Mercy Walworth Hospital in Lake Geneva, WI. He was born Oct. 27, 1966, in Elkhorn WI, the son of William and Gaynold (Foss) Frazier. David's tremendous attitude and care for others allowed him to set examples in his life for others. He took great pride in his accomplishments including guiding others through his profession at Elkhorn High School as a School Counselor. He was awarded the Apple award for his 20 years of exemplary and distinguished service in the Education Community. Dave was an avid outdoorsman since the days of his youth, learning from spending time afield with his family and his loving companion, Zoey, his chocolate lab. His passion for the outdoors was another pursuit of his life that he did to the fullest and with great success. He loved hunting with his brothers and friends and the ability to even interject a little competition into the annual hunts. This year he shared his hunting passion with Hannah, most special pal of all, enjoying the beautiful surroundings. He loved sports including his quest to be the best golfer in the group. He loved watching and coaching his daughter as she has tried many sports through summer and school programs.
Dave was the loving husband of Kelly Campbell Frazier and outstanding, "best ever" father to Hannah. He is survived by his wife and daughter. He is also survived by his brother, Rob (Kim) Frazier of Janesville, WI; two nieces, Tiffany Frazier and Lacy (Nick) Benishek; sister-in-law, Esther Frazier of Madison, MS; nephew, Kyle Frazier; and nieces, Heidi Frazier and Carrie (Blake) Mitchell; father-in-law, Richard (Gail) Campbell of Green Bay, WI; brothers and sisters-in-law, Steven (Mary) Campbell of Green Bay, Wendy (Chris) Peters of Denmark, WI, Kris (Kevin) Kuchta of Bradenton, FL, Rick (Lillian) Campbell of Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, Stacie (Jeff) Depas of Green Bay, WI; many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Terry and Bill; one sister, Mary; mother-in-law, Sharon Campbell; and his grandparents.
The outpouring of love, prayers, cards of support from all friends and family was greatly appreciated over the past 18 months throughout David's fight with cancer. It provided the silver lining to the difficult journey. Heartfelt thanks to Elkhorn teacher and student community for the meals and many fundraisers; family and friends that provided advice and a listening ear on the rides to Madison for treatments, and friends that took care of Hannah and Zoey that kept the daily routine running as smooth as possible. A special thanks goes out to the nurses and doctors of UW Carbone Cancer Center for providing hope with treatments and Mercy Walworth Hospital and Hospice for care and understanding when we needed it the most.
