CLARENCE CENTER, NY – David Neil Frazier, 62, passed away on Tuesday March 23, 2021 at his residence in Jupiter, FL after suffering a series of myocardial infarctions.

David was born Saturday December 13, 1958 in Page County, VA, the second son of Eleanor Mae (Rinaca) Frazier Sampson and the late Floyd Edward “Pete” Frazier.

In addition to his father, David was predeceased by his step-father, Roy Lee Sampson, and his wife of 27 years, Yumiko Kishi “Yumi” Frazier, after losing her long battle with cancer two weeks prior.

Surviving, in addition to his mother, are daughter, Christina N. Frazier of the home; and brothers, Jeffrey Lynn Frazier (Deborah) of Waynesboro, VA, Joel Keith Frazier (Jennifer) of Fort Defiance, VA and Douglas Myron Frazier (Teresa) of Harrisonburg, VA.

David attended Radford College/University (renamed in 1979) before transferring to Virginia Commonwealth University and receiving a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Finance with a minor in Economics. David continued his education at both Harvard University and the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), taking post-graduate courses in Finance and Accounting.

While studying at Harvard and UCLA, David completed the requirements for receiving licensure from the Finance Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) based on passing the “Uniform Securities Agent State Law Examination” (Series 63), the “Uniform Investment Advisor Law Examination” (Series 65), the “Uniform Combined State Law Examination” (Series 66) and the “General Securities Representative Examination” (Series 7).

David had an extensive background in the investment securities industry and counseled investing in the financial markets for more than 25 years. In addition to working as a business analyst, merchant banking analyst and equity research analyst, David worked in sales and marketing at institutional investment firms, including William O’Neil & Co., publisher of “Investor’s Business Daily,” TDAmeritrade and Merrill Lynch & Co.

David founded Frazier Research and Analytics (FRA) as an investment consulting firm providing financial research and analytical services to investing entities. Exemplary clients of FRA were Dan Sullivan’s “The Chartist,” Leeb Capital Group’s “The Complete Investor,” and the “Flex-fund” family of mutual funds.

Subsequently, while contracted by Newsmax Media, Inc., David authored a successful investment newsletter targeting individual investors.

David’s final venture was a founding partner of Frazier, Browne and Mayer Research, LLC, where he held the position of President and Chief Market Strategist. The firm offered financial research and analytical services to registered investment advisors, hedge funds and high net-worth individual investors.
