Josh Treaven Dwayne Fraiser, 31, departed his earthly life on Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018 at Palmetto Health Tuomey Hospital after a two-and-a-half-year heroic battle with cancer.

Josh, affectionately known to family and close friends as Treaven, was born on Jan. 27, 1987 at Toumey Hospital to Josh Dwayne Fraiser and Betty Carolyn Westbury Fraiser. He was educated in the public schools of Sumter School District and was a 2006 graduate of Lakewood High School.

After high school, Josh pursued higher education from Central Carolina Technical College and the University of South Carolina. He obtained a Class A Commercial Driver's License and a certification in Welding and HVAC.

Josh was a private person but enjoyed spending time with his family. He loved being a father and would often be heard saying, "I gotta go get my babies." He was a lover of music and an avid movie watcher. He loved going to work and school and was always eager to obtain another skill or trade. Josh was employed by Eaton before being diagnosed with cancer in 2015. He endured his battle with cancer with a "don't quit" attitude and remained strong and courageous up until his final months.

Those he left behind to cherish his fond and loving memories are: his wife, Jessica Colclough-Fraiser; three children, Ray'Quan Jerome Colclough, Ja'Ariers Zyleek Fraiser and Ja'Niyah Lashay Colclough; his loving mother, Betty C. Fraiser; his father, Josh D. Fraiser; four sisters, Shaniqua Westbury, Shaquarryah Fraiser, Victorian Stephen and My'Kiayah Rufus; and two nieces, Jimenah Carrington and Destini Richardson, all of Sumter; as well as a host of other aunts, uncles, cousins, family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Mr. Elijah Mickens Jr. and Mrs. Hattie Ophelia Westberry; his paternal grandparents, Mr. Josh Fraiser Jr. and Mrs. Rosa Mae Vaughn Fraiser; a maternal uncle, Mr. Charles Anthony Westberry; two paternal aunts, Ms. Patricia Ann Fraiser and Mrs. Priscilla Vera Russ; and his father-in-law, Mr. John Charles Colclough Sr. He will forever be in our hearts and truly missed.
