During the 134th Annual Convention of the Wisconsin Funeral Directors’ Association in Green Bay, WI, Mr. J C Frazier of Northwest Funeral Chapel was recognized for his 25 years of service as a Licensed Funeral Director.
Mr. Frazier has served on the Funeral Director Examining Board, Milwaukee Area Technical College Funeral Service Advisory Board and has represented local funeral directors before the Wisconsin State legislature. Additionally, he has trained a number of Funeral Service Apprentices who have gone on to become Licensed Funeral Directors.
Mr. Frazier’s funeral service career started after his retirement from the U.S. Army. His training and professional growth came under the auspices of Mrs. Ernestine O’Bee and Mr. William Ford, both of whom had served over fifty years as Licensed Funeral Directors. Mr. Frazier guided the transition of O’Bee Funeral Home to Northwest Funeral Chapel and since 1993, he and his staff have served over 400 families annually throughout Milwaukee and its surrounding communities.
The establishment of the Northwest Family Activity and Events Center on Good Hope Road and the Northwest Cremation Services on Fondulac Ave demonstrates his continual efforts toward “setting new standards for funeral services in our community.
