Frailey was born on Dec. 7, 1963, in Pryor to Billy Jim and Cherry Ann (Holland) Frailey. He died March 17, in Pryor.
He was a lifetime resident of Chouteau. He grew up and attended school in Chouteau and graduating from Chouteau High School in 1982. As a kid, he grew up in and around his family’s salvage business; he started helping out at Frailey Salvage at a young age and eventually started working there alongside his dad and brother full time. He currently managed and operated their salvage in Chouteau.
Frailey was married to the love of his life, Ann Louise Williams, on Nov. 9, 1991; from their union came two sons, Jacoby and Lane.
When he was 16, he started racing drag cars and worked up into the IMCA division; he realized that racing was in his blood and began making a name for himself in the sport. Apparently, racing was in the family bloodlines of all the Frailey boys. His brother Randy, his nephew Jeran and his son Jacoby all raced with him and Ann raced a car, too. Frailey Motorsports was born out of their love for the sport. He won many championships and trophies over the years, made many friends at the races but most of all, found something he could enjoy that included the whole family. There are many memories that have been left behind of weekends spent at the races.
Frailey was a Christian and wasn’t afraid to share it. He had lunch with his mom every day and she recalls many conversations with him about the Lord, the importance of faith and making sure his family would all be there with him some day. He knew that nothing he would accomplish in life would ever be as important as his relationship with God. On March 17, he won the ultimate race and crossed the finish line to heaven, it was too soon for anyone to understand but we know he is now waiting for his family and friends with a checkered flag in hand.
He is survived by his wife Ann and two sons, Jacoby and Lane of the home; his parents Billy Jim and Cherry Frailey of Chouteau; brother Randy Frailey of Chouteau; nephews Jeran and Landon Frailey of Chouteau and father-in-law Robert Williams of Jay.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents.
