Kevin Fraser

Kevin G. Fraser, 52, of Belleville, IL, born February 19, 1960, Belleville, IL, passed away Sunday, June 17, 2012, after an extended illness surrounded by his family at his residence.

Kevin was talented in many ways.  After learning to play music, he joined with friends to create the legendary Lone Oak Band.  He was a strong family man, who was passionate about every activity.  Coaching baseball, golfing, and watching sports filled his life with many happy memories.  As a young man he learned the carpentry trade, which gave him the skill to build and lend a hand to family and friends.  He later branched out as an entrepreneur and founded Star Cushion Products which manufactures medical products in the global market.   

Those who knew Kevin would describe him as a generous and caring person who always went beyond what was asked of him.   He will be dearly missed by his family and many friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, James D. Fraser, who died June 16, 2012; and his father-in-law, Ralph C. Fleshren.

    I posted this elsewhere too but my sincere prayers are with Kevin, Janice and your family. I thank God for giving Kevin to all of us and especially allowing me to be a part of his life. He was a special, cherished friend with a beautiful soul and touched all of us in so many ways. The sweetest, most helpful person we will ever know. He was a loving guy that wore his heart on his sleeve. He achieved so much in life, put in about 200% into everything he did and never gave up until he accomplished what he set out to do.

    We had so much fun together, so many ball games, concerts, bars, adventures, misadventures, laughs, so many stories, so much life together. I’ll never forget your smile, your big hugs and your beautiful, contagious laugh. My brother, my great friend, the other twin tower, you will be in my heart forever. I love you and I miss you dearly.

    Though we cannot understand God's plan while we remain here on earth and are never ready to say goodbye to those we love, in the scheme of life, Kevin did a lot more living in his 52 years than most of us would if we lived to be a hundred. He was a special guy and lives on through three wonderful children. Janice, call on me anytime for anything. I am here when you
    need me. We love y'all. Tempie & Robert Lyons
