They say everyone has a superpower; but most remain unrealized. Nicholas Laith Frazee had several, and because of his superpowers, many other folks could see their own through his eyes. Nick could elicit laughter on a gloomy day, bring a smile to the face that could be felt in the heart, discover ticklish places, and listen with intense focus when the hour called for it. Nick would not only tell stories and have his virtual rolodex of jokes, but he was a person whose interest in others was evident in his questions – always intrigued to hear what others thought.
Nick was twenty-seven when he left this world for Heaven on the 28th of October, 2020. At the time, he lived in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma with his Mom and Daddy and a couple of rascally dogs. He was born in Oklahoma City on the 22nd of April, 1993, and lived most of his life in the greater Tulsa area, with a three-year stint in Orlando, Florida. He attended school at Tulsa’s Little Light House when he was young; and he graduated high school in Owasso, Oklahoma in the Class of 2013. His schooling also included teamwork as a member of the school’s bocce ball team in the Special Olympics, which he enjoyed. Other important influences in Nick’s life include the Ronald McDonald House and Life Share.
Nick loved playing UNO, Sorry, Skip-Bo, Dominos with family and friends, and making up his own rules when he played each of these. He especially savored “playing a mean card” on fellow players during rounds of UNO; and he would toss his head back and laugh that amazing laugh friends and family know was contagious. Sharing time, stories, and experiences all gave Nick joy; and now the sharing continues as his legacy. Nick exhibited another heroic trait in this last bit of sharing – he was an organ and tissue donor. Now others will have a better quality of life because he shared of himself.
Nicholas was preceded in death by his birth father, David Frazee; maternal grandmother, Kathryn Hacker (Nick’s Grandma Kathy); great grandparents, Bill and Violet Hacker (also known as Papa and Nanny); and Jay Howard (Nick’s Papa Jay). Nick is survived by his parents, Dori and Greg Howard; his big brother and sister-in-law, Steven and Kim Frazee; and grandparents, aunts, uncles, nephews, and cousins (not listed in the interest of brevity).
Services to honor Nick are in the planning process. In the meantime, the family requests donations in Nicholas’ name be made to Little Lighthouse of Tulsa via: https://www.littlelighthouse.org/give-help and very much appreciate your prayers. When you give to support others, you too find the superpowers Nick shared with the world.
