We were deeply saddened to hear that Ed passed away. I got to know Ed well at Eucharist Rite 1. He always greeted me with a smile and big hand shake. He was a true Christian gentleman. I know he will be missed by many people. May God bless the entire
Frazier family during your time of loss.

I worked for Ed when I was with Birds Eye. I look back on my years with him with fond memories. I know I was better at what I did in the future because of him. He also was a great example to me of what a husband should be. We had most of our sales meeting at Christie's on South Main. $1.25 Fried Shrimp. On our way to James Coney Island downtown, we stopped to see why people were milling around in a parking lot. The Beatles were throwing stuff out a window. I had to tell who the Beatles were. Ed was such a good salesman that when Birds Eye had distribution at all the wholesaler's Birds Eye fired us all and hired a broker who hired Ed.

I caught my first fish with Uncle Ed. He created his own "honey-hole" by poking holes in a large can of Kennel Ration and sinking it by the dock. He even showed me how to clean it. He would randomly show up and take me to see the Astros play...just me and him. He was an awesome uncle, son, father, brother, husband and Godfather. We love and miss him.
