Andis Michael Frazier was born in St. Louis, Missouri, on May 24, 1986, to Angela Michele Frazier and Joel Sebastian Frieson. When Andis was just 9 months old, his family moved and made Tacoma, Washington, their home during his formative years. He accepted Christ at an early age and proceeded on to be an outstanding child who enjoyed sports.
He attended public schools in Tacoma, and during his high school years, the family relocated back to St. Louis, Missouri. As a child, he played drums, attended the YMCA for swimming and other activities, and eventually, he went on to play football for Vashon High School, “Home of the Wolverines”. In 2004, he graduated from Vashon with honors. He continued his education at Alabama A&M University pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Andis was an amazing big brother who always wanted better for others around him. He loved to travel and visit fancy restaurants. Andis also loved trying new things and wasn’t scared to tell you how he really felt. He was a loving son, a great father, a helpful friend, and a caring family member. Andis loved to cook, and his favorite meal was lasagna, ribs, and macaroni and cheese, followed by peach cobbler.
Andis enjoyed partaking the herbs (Kush) God put here on this earth for us to use for the healing of our bodies. You often knew when he was using God’s herbs by the cloud of smoke that followed. His laughter was contagious, and he enjoyed going to comedy shows/movies and taking his daughter to special events and outings. If you were around him for any length of time, he made you sharpen your debate skills—as he loved going back and forth, attempting to persuade you to see his side of things; and if he thought he was right, you couldn’t tell him or make him believe anything different.
Andis always had a big bright smile on his face and was very outspoken. When he greeted you, he would always say, “What’s up, Player,” and his response to you most often was, “You already know.”
Andis was preceded in death by his brother, Armanti Maurice Bonner (2009), and great-grandmother, Rosie Frazier Williams (2011).
Andis was so loved by his mother, brothers, daughter, granny, nephew, cousins, aunts, and uncles. His biggest accomplishment and greatest love was becoming a father to Kariea Nashay Frazier, who will continue his legacy. He lived, laughed, and loved and will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Andis leaves precious memories to cherish with his daughter, Kariea Nachay Frazier; loving mother, Angela Frazier; his father, Joel Sebastian Frieson; two brothers, Adrion Bonner and Edward Manora III; maternal grandparents, Winfred and Rosetta Frazier, Sr.; an aunt, Crystal Frazier; an uncle, Winfred Frazier, Jr.; a nephew, Arvon Bonner; Andris also leaves two special friends Virginia and Priscilla and a host of other aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
