Robert E "Bob" Frazier

February 16, 1934 ~ March 28, 2017 (age 83)

Kennebunk - Robert E. “Bob” Frazier, 83, of Kennebunk passed away March 28, 2017 at Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough. He was born Feb. 16, 1934 in Gardiner, the son of Marjorie (French) and Eugene Frazier. He graduated from Gardiner High School in 1952. Mr. Frazier was plant manager at the Health-Tex manufacturing plant in Gardiner, retiring after 20 years in 1980. Bob served with the 103rd Infantry of the Maine National Guard, attending officer candidate school at Fort Benning, Georgia. He retired from the Guard with the rank of First Lieutenant.

 Bob was very entrepreneurial, which culminated in the establishment by he and his wife Diane in 1980 of Mountain Tops, a retail clothing store at the Sugarloaf/USA ski resort. The store specialized in imprinted sportswear and was a quick success. The company grew to encompass twelve locations in Maine and New Hampshire. It continues as the family business today.

Bob  enjoyed many golfing trips with his Sugarloaf buddies “The Cargo Chows”. He also owned and bred horses for many years. He was an active member of the Maine Harness Horsemen’s Association, United States Trotting Association, and the Maine Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association. 

 He is survived by his wife Diane Frazier of Kennebunk, son Chuck and wife Helen of Scarborough, daughter Jayne (Frazier) Coy and husband Bob of Sanford, son Greg of Old Orchard Beach, Maine, and by granddaughter Elizabeth Frazier of Portland. He is also survived by his step-grandchildren Sean Coy, Jessica Lynch and James Coy, and step-great granddaughter Ashlyn Coy, as well as sister-in-law Christine Shea and husband Ron.

Visiting hours will be held Saturday April 1 from 4 to 7 PM at Staples Funeral Home, 53 Brunswick Avenue in Gardiner. Burial will take place later in the spring at the family plot in Oak Grove Cemetery in Gardiner.

The family expresses its gratitude for their warm and compassionate care to Gosnell Memorial Hospice House and its wonderful staff, as well as the nurses and staff at Southern Maine Medical Center.
