A simple and quiet man, he enjoyed playing his Xbox 360, eating at Burger King and mud bogging in his 4x4 Dodge. Daniel enlisted in the Army at the age of 22. He was very close to his family and always looked out for others. In 2006 Daniel enlisted in the Army and like his brother, dedicated himself to service. He was a "big brother" to many of his fellow soldiers and listened to them as he helped with anything possible. Rather than being concerned with himself Daniel was always giving to his fellow soldiers serving along side him. When home he enjoyed spending time with his family; Daniel was a wonderful uncle and especially enjoyed his nieces and nephews. He was a man of sound character and loved his family. Daniel had an infectious smile about him that always put others at ease. To say he will be missed is an understatement. On March 21, 2009 Daniel wed the love of his life, Brittany Lea Jensen at a ceremony in Kernersville, North Carolina. While the two hadn't known each other long, in the grand scheme of life, they both knew they had the type of love that is once in a life time. As a couple the two shared a strong passion and mutual respect for one another. He is preceded in death by his paternal grandfather Bruce Frazier and maternal grandfather Allen Beebe. Daniel is survived by his wife Brittany Frazier, his father David (Sheri) Frazier, mother Roxana (William) Walter, paternal grandmother Geraldine Frazier. maternal grandmother Donna Beebe, siblings; Jessica (David) Marquardt, David (Amanda) Frazier, Marie (Cory) Culver, Amanda (Mike) McLain, Lauren (Kevin) Lamb, David Walter. Daniel has always been a hero to his parents and siblings, from the birth of his nephews and nieces "Uncle Dan" was a hero, to Brittney, Daniel was her romantic hero, who swept her off her feet. Daniel died at age 25 in Zabul province, Afghanistan, of wounds sustained when a suicide car-bomber attacked their unit. He was assigned to the 782d Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, N.C.
