Richard "Eddie" Frazier also known as "Fast Ed" was born on May 8th, 1957 in Alamance County to Richard and Dorothy Frazier. Eddie loved life and treated it as an adventure. When he did something he did it with a passion from working on cars, to enjoying time with friends, but most of all his family. He didn't take no for an answer, when he had something in his mind, he made a way to make it happen. Growing up in the family garage it was no surprise he took a strong interest into cars. He completed his studies at Nashville Auto Diesel College. He worked at Napa Auto and then at A-1 Auto in Mebane. He also rebuilt carburetors and was known to a lot of people as the carburetor man. He built multiple projects from the ground up with the Camaro on tractor wheels being the last that he built, he called it the "Monster Machine." He met Cheryl in 1976 and little did he know how much he would grow to love her and the good life and family they built together. They got married July 8th, 1978 at Lighthouse Baptist Church in Mebane. They have had 79 days short of 45 years building their love and life together. He found another level of love when Kristy was born and Sherrie four years later. As much as he loved both his girls with all his heart, his love grew leaps and bounds when Amber was born and then it grew more when Elijah "sparky" and Hannah were born. After many years of fighting for his health, a couple of years ago he decided not to fight alone and in UNC hospital asked God into his heart. He put up a good fight and when it was his time on April 20th and he breathed his last breath he went to heaven to watch over us until we meet him again. The last time his daughter Sherrie talked to him that he was completely himself he told her to not to be upset as he had a great life. He had lots of adventures, built a bunch of projects over the years, and married the love of his life, who took care of him better than anyone else would or could have done. He said he could never think everyone who has helped him since he was sick or for the ones that put their life on hold for him. He said he will be forever grateful for the extra time he got with all his girls and grandkids the last few weeks. His only wish was to get together for one last cookout with the whole family. He also asked her to make sure to look after her Mom and to do whatever it takes to make and keep the family whole. He is survived by his wife. Cheryl Frazier; daughters, Sherrie Russ Frazier and Kristy Hardy; grandchildren, Amber Hardy, Hannah Frazier and Elijah Frazier; his father, Richard G. Frazier; brothers, Randy and Phil Frazier; brother in law. Billy Hunter and his mother in law, Elsie Hunter. He was preceded in death by his mother, Dorothy Frazier.
