Alfred Joseph “AJ” Freniere III

| January 22, 2021

Alfred Joseph “AJ” Freniere, III, 33 years old, of Urbana, Ohio passed away at home on January 20, 2021. Born in Coshocton on October 15, 1987 and formerly of Dresden, Ohio, AJ had friends and family from across the state who were with him when he died.

Diagnosed at age 18 with a genetic disease, AJ would go on to live a life he loved. With endless happiness and a forever smile, AJ spent his time watching NASCAR racing and his favorite driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr; driving his truck while listening to music; clearing land, building houses, welding and fishing with his father, spending time with friends/family and playing with his son, who was the light of his life.

While his mother Tanya Meyer Freniere and maternal grandparents preceded him in death, AJ is survived by his paternal grandparents, son Jeremiah Freniere (mother Tammy Kyser), Stepmother Ann Freniere, father Alfred (Lori) Freniere, Jr, sister Krista Newman and stepsisters Jennifer Singleton and Elizabeth (Dustin) Shipley, along with multiple nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles, and many friends.

On a personal note, AJ would have hated the formality of an obituary. He would have wanted to get on with the funeral and get to his truck in the sky, driving around those golden streets.
