“Sorry to here the passing of Jerry Wonderful Man Praying for his Family ”
5 of 5 | Posted by: Tanya Foreman - Germatown, MD

On January 14, 1928, the late Theodore Roosevelt Frazier and the late Mable Anna Lee Frazier became the proud parents of their first son. He was named Theodore Roosevelt Frazier, Jr. "Jerry," as he was affectionately known, was the second child in a family of eight siblings.

Jerry attended Montgomery County Public Schools. He worked various jobs including working with horses at the Racetrack. There, he traveled from Florida to Connecticut working with his beloved horses. Jerry returned home to work with the City of Rockville Public Works. He retired after thirty-six years of service. Choosing not to stay home, Jerry's last and most memorable job was serving as a parking lot attendant in downtown Rockville. He "followed the rules" and "you could not and would not" disobey the rules. He was called a few nice words and many not so nice words. He remained there until they demolished the area due to renovations. He retired again and began living his life to the fullest.

Jerry joined Brighton Centennial Methodist Church in Brighton, Maryland at an early age. Later, he transferred his membership to Hopkins United Methodist Church where he was a member of the Hopkins UMC Male Chorus. He loved to sing and dance and had a beautiful tenor voice. Jerry began singing at an early age. As a child, he and two brothers Bernard, Eddie (Buttons) and one sister, Annie sang in a group called "Three Bees & A Honey." They traveled to various churches and venues in the Maryland and District of Columbia area. Jerry, like his siblings, had many interests and talents. He had an insatiable love for motorcycles. He was a Founding Member of "Wheels of Thunder" Motorcycle Club in Montgomery County. They proudly rode their bikes all up the east coast and throughout Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Jerry loved camping as well as fishing. He was a member of the Montgomery County RV Club. They traveled to Mississippi and all over the East Coast. Jerry would go out on the boat and return with coolers full of fish. If he didn't catch fish, he wanted his money back.

In 1962, Jerry married Elnora Cole. They were married for twenty-nine years. She preceded him in death in 1991.

During his illness, niece Gale Smith, partner, Shirley Harding and daughters Alveria and Justine provided assistance and unconditional love toward his care and well-being.

Jerry enjoyed visiting with his two great-grandsons, Imari Jr. whom he affectionately called "My Buddy" and Elijah.

Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Roosevelt and Mable; siblings Bernard, Gladys, Eddie (Buttons), Marie, Bradley and Annie.

Jerry leaves to cherish his memories, a brother, Leonard "Pick" Frazier (Barbara), a dear, loving and supportive partner for many years, Shirley Harding, three daughters, Alveria M. Cole, Justine Drew (Christopher), Edna Washington; a special friend, Charles Thomas (Charlie Buck); seven grandchildren; fourteen great-grandchildren; five great-great grandchildren; nephews; nieces; great nieces; great nephews and a host of other relatives and friends.
