THOMAS F. FRAHER
AFC Thomas Francis Fraher, 21, stationed at Pease AFB, Portsmouth, N.H., was killed in a one-car crash in Wolfeboro, N.H., Friday afternoon.
The owner and operator of the vehicle was Dennis Rich, also stationed at Pease AFB, of Watertown. Airmen Fraher and Rich had been hunting and Fraher was near the end of four years of Air Force duty.
According to investigating officers, the car was demolished when it struck a concrete abutment to avoid a head-on crash with another vehicle. Rich suffered cracked ribs and a crushed hand, Airman Fraher was reported dead on arrival at Wolfeboro Hospital.
He was born July 31, 1944 in Bennington, son of Michael and Helen (Knapp) Fraher of 327 Dewey St. A 1963 graduate of Bennington Catholic High School, he had been employed at Ben-Mont before entering the service.
