James Frye

April 20, 1948 — March 17, 2021


James H. Frye, age 72, Grove, OK went to meet his maker on March 17, 2021.

He and his wife Candy had made their home in the Grove, Oklahoma area for the better part of the last 37 years. They had one son, Brian, now of California. James had a daughter Theresa, of Kentucky, from a previous marriage. She has 3 children: Denna, Keith and Kayla and 3 grandchildren.

Several years ago Jim and Candy were honored to be informally adopted as PawPaw and MawMaw by the sons of Lisa and William Day: William Daniel, now of Texas; James; J.C.; and William Calvin all of Mississippi.
James was born to Jack and Dora Frye of West Virginia. He had 2 sisters: Maggie and B.J. and 7 brothers: George; Frank; David; Ed; Rick; Chuck and Larry.
Jim served in Vietnam with the US Army. He rarely missed an opportunity to greet a fellow VN vet with a handshake and a heartfelt “Welcome home, Brother!”
