Obituary

Dennis Eugene “Flea” Fraley, 69, of Tiffin, died at 3:16 p.m. Saturday, January 15, 2022, peacefully with his family by his side at the Cleveland Clinic.  He was born July 8, 1952, in Tiffin to Eugene E. and Marjorie J. (Lehnert) Fraley.  He married his soul mate and wife of 43 years, Charlotte “Suzi” Walker on November 18, 1978, and she survives.

He was the proud father of two daughters, Denise (Brad) Lewis of Bellevue, and Kati (Todd) Christner, of Mt. Cory; proud papa to four grandchildren, Arianna Garcia, Chayse Cross, Kami Christner, and Landen Lewis; a sister, Sharon (Gary) Hartman of Tiffin.

He is preceded in death by his parents.

Dennis was a 1970 Tiffin Columbian High School graduate.  He retired from sales in various areas; he had managed the Eagles Lodge and sold insurance for Roger Smith Agency.  He was a lifetime member of Amvets and the Eagles. Other than his love for his family he loved watching his Yankees, Cowboys, Notre Dame, and taking family trips to Las Vegas.  His love will be missed by many.
