Stewart Thomas Fraley of Ottawa Lake Michigan passed away February 4, 2022 at Hickman Hospital in the loving arms of his family. he was born December 22,1938 to Thomas and Helen Fraley and has two sisters, Loretta (Johnson), Joann (Kinney), and one brother Stanley Fraley who preceded him in death who were surely there to greet him when he gained his heavenly wings. He is survived by his ex-wife Joyce Young and his 3 daughters, Pamela (Robert) Behner, Lori Fraley (Reiger), and Kerry (Charles) White,  his seven grandchildren, Breezsha, Renee, Emily, Ian, Ryan, Melissa and Valerie along with 19 great grandchildren. He also had many nieces and nephews, too many to name, but they all have very fond memories of him and so many stories to tell. He loved family above all and had many children who grew up calling him dad or grandpa that he took under his wing when they needed him. He was a loving, caring, selfless, humble, kind, generous and gentle man to everyone he loved. He will be greatly missed by everyone he touched. He enjoyed his farm and working outdoors on his land. He loved to travel most recently to Belize and Alaska. In his younger years he liked his fast cars and motorcycles. He was a quiet man but he also had a great sense of humor and enjoyed music and sometimes you would even hear him sing. Yes, he really did sing out loud and even dance! We all love him so very much and we know we will someday see him again. His wishes were not to have a funeral to mourn him but instead have a celebration of his life. We will let family and friends know date and place when determined.
