Darryl F. Frazier peacefully entered into eternal life on Tuesday, September 22, 2020. He was born on September 25, 1953 to the late Burnhardt and Virginia Frazier. A product of Norfolk Public Schools, Darryl graduated from Norview High School – Class of 1971. He later attended Norfolk State University, majoring in Elementary Education, and while there became a member of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Incorporated. In 1988, Darryl married Bonita A. Hines, of Portsmouth Virginia. He had a more than twenty-year career with E. L. Hamm & Associates, Incorporated and concluded his working years with LR-Associates, LLC in March of 2018.
The life of any party, “Dog,” as he was sometimes affectionately called, brought smiles to the faces of all whom he encountered, especially his loved ones and friends. He enjoyed watching Westerns, loved listening to Jazz and was quite often, the best dressed in any room. He could be found on any given Saturday relaxing with his brothers and never passed up an opportunity to attend his father-in-law’s (Mr. Hines) famous cookouts, where he was the designated fish-fryer. Darryl worshipped at New Zion Baptist Church, Williamsburg, VA, and Mount Olive Baptist Church, Norfolk, VA.
He was predeceased in death by his son, Warren E. Drewrey, Jr., but left to carry on his legacy are his loving and devoted wife of thirty-two years, Bonita A. Frazier, his daughter, Katina Gonzales (Ryan), Chesapeake, Virginia, and his grandson, Julian Gonzales. He also leaves to cherish his memory four beloved brothers: Burnhardt A. Frazier, Norfolk, VA, Romeo M. Frazier (Barbara), Virginia Beach, VA, Lindsey Y. Frazier (Linda), Williamsburg, VA, and Mitchell D. Frazier, Esq. (Janice), Virginia Beach, VA, in addition to a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, Helen “Ma” Sellers, and friends.
