Clifford Raymond Fraley, of Antigo, died Sunday, January 3, 2016 at home under the care of Asera Care Hospice and his family at the age of 67. He was born on July 25, 1948 in Kenosha, a son of the late Clarence and Inez (Bowen) Fraley.
Mr. Fraley worked many aspects of construction throughout the midwest and as far west as the Alaska pipeline.
His love for the outdoors was evident in the amount of time he spent as an angler and hunter in the north woods. With the soul of an artist, he collected coins and worked with wood in his shop. His family remembers him as an inventor who enjoyed making life easier.
Survivors include: two daughters, Brenda (Gary) Anderson, Kimberly, Deanna “DeDe” (Michael) Pelky, Antigo; son, David (Karla) Flak, Spearfish, South Dakota; two step-sons, Dennis Flak, New London, Daniel Flak, Sr., Elton; 18 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; four sisters, Vicki (Al) Heath, Florida, Shannon (J.D.) Paschal, Illinois, Lillian “Cookie” (John) Paschal, Illinois, Tammy (Kevin) Rowlette, Kenosha.
He was preceded in death by his parents, 12 sisters and brother.
Out of respect for Clifford’s final wishes, no funeral services are scheduled.
