Information from the Nashua Reporter and the Greene Iowa Recorder, 1927:

Ralph Frazier was born in Des Moines, Iowa. At the age of 6 he moved with his parents to Nashua, and later to the vicinity of Greene. On 12/26/1926 he came to Waterloo to attend Corn Belt Business College, staying with his uncle, Fred May. In March 1927 he began work at the John Deere Tractor Co. as a plumber's helper.

On 9/19/1927 at 3:45pm, while working in the basement of the plant, he was electrocuted when he took hold of a wet light socket or came into contact with a damp pipe while holding the socket.

Funeral services were held at his mother's home in Greene on September 22.
