Glen Fryer of Mariposa went home to be with his Heavenly Father in the early morning of Jan. 14, 2019, after a two year battle with cancer. He passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family. He was 69 years old.
Glen was born on March 21, 1949, in Troy, Ala., to Louie and Roxie Fryer. He spent most of his childhood in Omaha, Neb., and continued his education at the University of Nebraska and the University of New Mexico.
Glen traveled the country before he moved to Mariposa in the early 1980s. He was a carpenter, mason, artist, karate instructor and, finally, a local business owner.
Glen met his wife Cindy and they married in 1997. They had two fine boys: James and Matthew Fryer.
Glen was a Godly man and had a heart for the Lord.
He loved his family with his whole heart, mind and soul and always put his wife and children first in his life. He is also known for his quick wit and sense of humor.
His hobbies included chainsaw wood carving, golfing, karate, camping, dirt bike riding, guitar playing, frisbee and beach volleyball.
Glen is survived by his wife of 21 years, Cindy Fryer; their two sons, James and Matthew Fryer; sister, Tracey Roxburgh of Omaha; and many nephews, nieces and a grandniece.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Faye.

Following the service there will be a gathering of friends and family at 11 a.m. in the gymnasium. This will be a potluck and a time of sharing special moments about Glen.
Philippians 3:20-21 NLT — “But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them with glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control.”
