Kenny Cleveland Frazier
Kenny Frazier, age 66, of Kokomo, passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 12, 2021, surrounded by his loving family. He was born on May 28, 1955 to his parents, Charles Frazier and LaNette (Jones) Phifer.
Kenny grew up in Tipton, and graduated from Tri-Central High School in the Class of 1973. He then went on to earn an Associate Degree in Criminal Justice from Ball State University. Kenny proudly served his country in the United States Army, and retired after 23 years of active duty. Kenny also kept himself busy working for the Tipton County Sheriff’s Dept. working as a Reserve Deputy and Jailer.
Kenny was a person who left a lasting impression! He was confidently outgoing, and fiercely independent. He loved a crowd, and always made time to make those around him laugh. Kenny was known for being an “early bird” and a “go getter”. He could eat breakfast for every meal of the day, and thoroughly enjoyed his black coffee at any hour of the day. Nothing made him happier than when he was with those he loved. Kenny was extremely proud of his family! He had the gift of encouragement, and naturally spread joy to all who crossed his path!
He was a man with many talents and interests. Kenny was a member of the NRA and the VFW. In his spare time you may have found him woodworking, or antiquing. He also loved to go to auctions and garage sales (even bad ones)! Wrestling was perhaps Kenny’s most unique talent. For 41 impressive years Kenny wrestled professionally, and even received the honor of being inducted into four Halls of Fame.
Those left to carry on Kenny’s legacy of love are his Wife, Cynthia Frazier; Children, Kenneth (Leslie) Frazier, Jason (Hope) Frazier, Ashley (Jonathan) Barrett, Misty (John) Adcock, Darrin (Christina) Adcock, Michael (Shelley) Adcock, Joshua (Amber) Adcock; Grandchildren, Tyler Frazier, Austin Frazier, Kendra Frazier, Zaid Frazier, Hunter Frazier, Gideon Frazier, Mykuh Frazier, Shawnda Johnson, Kara Name, Hayle Name, MaKayla Adcock, Dillon Adcock, Hannah Adcock, Keegan Adcock, Stephan Adcock, Addisyn Adcock, Kamrun Adcock, Graycee Adcock; Great Grandson, Landyn Nolder; Siblings, Brenda (Bill) Stearns, Janice (Jim) Lee, Benny (Patty) Frazier, Jerry (Debbie) Frazier; many Nieces, Nephews, and Cousins; as well as Kenny’s beloved dog, Kacey.
