Stephen Mark Fraysher March 17, 1954 – April 9, 2020 Stephen Mark Fraysher passed away suddenly on April 9, 2020 in a plane accident in Marathon, FL. An adventurer to the end, Steve loved the outdoors. He was an avid wind surfer, water & snow skier, sailor, hiker, boat captain, & pilot. He spent his life living in both the tropics & the mountains; enjoying the earth’s beauty through exploration & play. Steve was born in Palo Alto, CA & educated through high school in Bakersfield, CA. After his graduation from West High School in 1972, he began his life of adventures by traveling to Hawaii. He sailed back to the states, received his B.A. from the University of Denver in Hotel & Resort Management and started managing restaurants & bars first in Lakeshore, CA and then in Steamboat Springs, CO. Wherever his travels took him, he gave back to his community by helping others as a volunteer firefighter, member of the Ski Patrol, & serving on numerous civic committees. He built houses in his youth & later in life became interested in assisting others with housing development in FL. He was a thoughtful, caring person – quick witted, fun loving, & one who lived life on his own terms. He is deeply missed by his wife, Susan Ciccolini, sister Janet Hayslett (David), niece Lauren Hayslett (Garrett Deese), extended family & many friends, and beloved dog, Sunny. Ceremonies of Life will take place at Huntington Lake, CA, Aptos, CA, & Islamorada, FL following the removal of travel restrictions from the pandemic. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made in Steve’s name to one of his favorite organizations, Tunnel to Towers – a non-profit assisting disabled veterans & first responders by providing housing to them.
