Otha Eugene Frizzell
Published: July 12, 2018
Otha Eugene Frizzell, 81, was born in Tomberlin, Arkansas on March 17, 1937 and departed for his Heavenly home on July 10, 2018 in England, Arkansas. Otha, or "Gene," as many knew him, was a devoted Christian and believer in Christ. He was a lifelong resident of England, and a longtime member and deacon of Landmark Baptist Church in England, Arkansas. He retired after 45 years as vice president of the Bank of England and the owner of several local successful businesses including F&F Auto Sales, The Queen of England, Frizzell's Foods, and most recently Olympic Motors and Olympic Plaza in Cabot. Otha's most powerful legacy, though, is that of his family. Otha was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He spent his entire life taking care of the ones that he loved and led his family to walk with Christ. Otha was a skilled man, and his hobbies included hunting, fishing, carpentry, and mechanics. There weren't many things that Otha couldn't build or repair. Otha was blessed to have had not one, but two amazing marriages. When his first wife, Shirley May Frizzell, went to be with the Lord after 44 years of marriage, he was blessed to fall in love with Mary Frizzell some years after and gained another daughter, son, and grandchildren through that union. Not many people can have one love, but Otha was fortunate enough to have two happy marriages.
Otha is preceded in death by his wife, Shirley Frizzell, father: Otha Lee Frizzell, his mother: Mable Standfill Frizzell, and his three sisters: Doris Blackwell, Madeline Harrington, and Shirley Hallie. Otha Is survived by his wife, Mary Frizzell, sons: Mike Frizzell and Mike McFadden and daughter: Terri Felton. He also is survived by his grandchildren, Lindsey Duncan, Hunter Felton, Kiki Felton, Lindsey McFadden, and Madison McFadden. He has one great-grandchild: Chael Pierce, who considers him a superhero and his best friend. Otha is loved, treasured, and respected by many. Otha and his family invite anyone reading this, if they have not done so, to trust Christ as their personal Savior so they can see Otha once again someday.
