In memory of
Lewis C. Frazier
Lewis Calvin Frazier, Jr., 85, died Tuesday, August 14, 2018, at North Mississippi Medical Center. He was born in Gore Springs, January 3, 1933, to Louis Calvin and Eunice Minafore Frazier and was reared in the Duck Hill area. On April 13, 1957, he married the love of his life, Carolyn Hill and they shared 51 wonderful years together until her death on July 2, 2008. Early in life, he proudly served his country in the United States Army during the Korean War. Later in life, he owned and operated Modern Barber Shop in downtown Tupelo for over 40 years where many enjoyed his quick wit and haircuts. Lewis was an avid outdoorsman and especially enjoyed hunting, fishing, vegetable gardening and beekeeping. He was a member of the American Legion Post 49 in Tupelo. His favorite thing in the world to do was spend time with his grandson, Nicholas and great-grandson, Owen. He was a long-time faithful member of First Baptist Church where he served as a Deacon.
