Howard "Wayne" Frazier passed away on Sunday, March 18, 2018, at the age of 62. He was born in Syracuse, NY on August 23, 1955. Wayne moved to Baton Rouge as a child and attended Tara High School, where he graduated in 1973. He then went to LSU, was a member of the Golden Band from Tigerland and received a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education in 1978. His first teaching position was at Lutcher High School then moved on to Glen Oaks High School as band director. Afterwards, Wayne spent the next 16 years as band director at Belaire High School, then took a sabbatical, married the love of his life on June 25, 1988 and earned his Master's Degree in Saxophone Performance in 1989. He returned to Belaire High School to resume his position, then later completed his 21 year teaching career at Broadmoor High School. After retirement from teaching, he began his second career as a Maritime Ship's Agent. Wayne enjoyed meeting people from all around the world and he shared his faith whenever given the opportunity. He was a passionate fan of the LSU Tigers, New Orleans Saints and Chicago Cubs. He cherished the times he spent with his beloved family which he always referred to as his greatest blessing. Wayne's faith was so strong, he had no doubt where he would be when this day came. He provided his children with a firm foundation anchored in Christ and made sure his family was in worship. Long ago, Wayne made the decision to be an organ donor. He was able to provide the miracles that several families have been praying for. He is truly a hero to people who will never know him. He will always be our hero. Please honor him by considering being an organ donor. Wayne is survived by his wife of 29 years, Shara Schulingkamp Frazier; daughter, Kelsey; sons, Tanner and Layne; and brother, Daniel.

Mr.Frazier and I were at Belaire High together. What a great person and teaching cohort. He made the band do what is right and play well for our football games. He was a special person to be around. The world will miss him. Thanks for all you did, Mr. Frazier. Thanks, Coach Jim Lieux

I'm sorry to hear about Mr. Wayne's death. He was a great man and a delight to be around. One of my favorite things about him was that he treated my entire family with love and respect. His own family also embodies his humble character. My condolences go out to them.

My sincere heartfelt condolences to the family of Wayne Frazier. He and his wife, children were truly a blessing to know. I recall when my sons, Zechariah and Jeremiah Cameron first met the Fraziers at BRLS. Wayne and Shara Frazier were the first to offer us a beautiful welcome. They opened their hearts and home to us. We will always remember Mr. Wayne's humor and wit. He left a beautiful legacy for us all to learn from: "Share the love"! Mr. Wayne, you've live a good life of which we all can learn. Your light will forever shine in me and my son's life. God has received an angel. Sleep on Bro. Frazier, take your rest. The Camerons

The earth is just a little sweeter from the legacy left behind by Mr. Frazier.
His patience and love for music and children, and his faith were very clear. I am blessed to have been apart of his bands at Belaire.
Marching, Concert, Symphonic, Jazz... he was so talented. The world would be a softer place if people had more REAL music in their lives.
God Bless his family during their loss.
