Obituary for William Fraley

William C. Fraley, 90, passed away peacefully at his home on September 25, 2017. Born in Winchester in 1927, he lived his entire life in Clark County and served our country in WWII as a Marine. He is survived by his beloved wife of 58 years, Phyllis J. Fraley. He was the beloved father to Brenda Fraley (Donnie) Rogers, Sandra Fraley, Teresa Fraley (Jim) King, Connie Fraley (Lee) Campbell, William Jeffrey (Patricia) Fraley, Michael Edward (Theresa) Fraley, Alice Fraley (Patrick) O’Kelley. He is also survived by 18 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. He was one of eight children born to Everett and Edna Fraley. He is survived by his brother Andrew Fraley and his sister, MaryAnn Estes. He was preceded in death by two brothers, Noble E. Fraley and Bernard C. Fraley and three siblings who died at birth. He was a husband, father, friend…known to many through Fraley Automotive with locations in Winchester (co-owned with his brother, Bernard C. Fraley) and Mt. Sterling. Quick to help others, to share his engineering know-how, quick to smile and share his quick wit, he was a friend to many. He loved working on cars, trucks, tractors and farm equipment…anything mechanical. As much as he loved his job, he enjoyed life on his farm more. He was greatly loved and admired by the lives he touched.  His spirit lives on.
