Obituary for Robert Scott Fraley

It is with great sadness that the family of Robert “Bob” Scott Fraley announces his death, which occured on Saturday, April 24, 2021. He was 64 years old. Bob is survived by his parents Leslie and Barbara Fraley, his children Madelyn and Isaac (Katie), his former wife of 31 years Deb Anderson, and his sisters Cindy (Bob) Wilke and DeAnna Hill.

Bob was born in Columbus, Ohio on August 16, 1956. He graduated from McPherson College in McPherson, Kansas in 1978 with a degree in Chemistry. He began his career as a bench chemist and worked his way up to manager and director positions. He held positions in the pharmaceutical and biotechnical industries. He particularly loved being involved with start-up companies. He worked in McPherson, moved to Oklahoma, where he and Deb met, and moved with her to CA while she attended graduate school. After graduate school, they moved to Boulder, CO and started their family. A change in job brought the family to Maryland.

Bob enjoyed music and story-telling (both listening and performing). During his college years he was a member of a BlueGrass band and performed in theatre including the lead role in Godspell. He was a long-distance runner, participating in three marathons and numerous other shorter distance road races including at least a dozen Bolder Boulder road races in Boulder, CO. He enjoyed being outdoors hiking, camping, playing golf, and entertaining friends and family at backyard BBQs.

Experiencing the outdoors, whether backpacking with his spouse, attending a Rockies game with his daughter or a concert with his son, was a passion for Bob. He was so proud of his children and experienced great joy in volunteering with little league baseball for Isaac and attending high school performances in which Madelyn performed and Isaac was a techie. He enjoyed the solitude of reading and of running and the connection with family and friends through travel, sporting events and concerts. Bob was a kind, gentle, and generous soul, who loved his family deeply.

A private ceremony will be held at a future date. Memorial donations may be made to Alcoholics Anonymous or your local homeless shelter.
