Sources on island are reporting that one of the island’s iconic characters has died. If you’ve been to St. John, you’ve seen Lindy Frazier, a thin, tall man shuffling around the Park and downtown Cruz Bay, always holding a bottle of beer. It was a Heineken.
Earlier this year, the Tradewinds reported Frazier had been hospitalized for a few days, but checked himself out to return to the streets of St. John. He showed signs of more serious illness during the summer. Sometimes he just lay on the street, prompting some, unfortunately, to make fun of him.
Lindy was known to everyone. Rumors had it that Frazier’s family really owned 50% of Cruz Bay. Or that he owned it alone. So, you shouldn't worry about him. He’s just eccentric.
Whatever the truth, he’s passed away. You can bet there will be a Memorial service. He was a character.
