why "orange frazer"

We named our company after a man who lived in our town in the late 1890s where Orange Frazer and his brother, John, ran a downtown grocery for nearly half a century. Orange was a traveler, leaving for distant places wearing his dark suit and carrying a suitcase full of fresh collars. He had a large library, and he liked the company of women but never married. He paid court to the town's first woman doctor for many years, and later, to the local Latin teacher, whom he remembered in his will.
