Robert Fred Frost

April 21, 1947 - October 31, 2014

Robert was born on April 21, 1947 to Lorin Edward & Elaine Taylor Frost in Ogden, Utah. He was the second of four children. He passed away at home October 31, 2014 from a quick battle with liver cancer.


Robert married his high school sweetheart, Kathryn Gray Frost on July 11, 1968. They were later sealed in the Ogden LDS temple on April 25, 1987.  Robert and Kathy truly lived “the dream” for 46 years.


Robert was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  He had a firm testimony in the gospel.


Robert was always a hard worker. He started young with a paper route and washing dishes at China Temple.  He served in the Army/Air Force Reserves for twelve years and worked at HAFB.  He enjoyed buying, fixing, selling boats and trucks.  While working at Eaton Kenway he worked in 43 states, his family often traveled with him. Robert was an electrician and a Relator. His most unusual job was managing the Halloween Shop every year; this was a family experience.  Robert’s ideal job started in 1997 when he earned his Captain’s license and began halibut chartering in Alaska with his son, Justin.  Robert’s dream of Halibut charters will continue with Justin, he left behind a great legacy and large shoes to fill.


Robert was a true sportsman; he always enjoyed the outdoors and hunting/fishing. He created many memories with family and friends during numerous hunting and camping trips.  He loved to sit around the campfire telling stories or teaching songs like “Chantilly Lace”.  During his first years of marriage, he and Kathy spent every weekend in Yellowstone.  In 1980, Robert was thrilled to go on a “once in a life time trip” to Alaska with his brother in law, Duane Brian.  This trip became a yearly occurrence for Robert and eventually brought him to the dream of having a second home in Alaska where he guided halibut charters.  He had a special place in his heart for Alaska and the many friends there.


Robert enjoyed numerous outdoor activities like four wheeling, hiking, scuba diving, waterskiing, motorcycling and snow skiing.  He also enjoyed playing tennis; he was thrilled when his granddaughters started playing.  Robert loved traveling, whether it was Hawaii, New Orleans, California, Arizona, Lake Powell, Alaska, Florida or Mexico, it did not matter.  He enjoyed all the destinations and was willing to go on the next adventure with a moments notice.


Robert most of all loved his family; he was blessed with two children, JennyLynn in 1973 and Justin Robert in 1974.  He often said he had a favorite daughter and a favorite son. Robert especially loved his eight grandchildren. He supported and cheered for their many activities.  Robert and Kathy could often be found at band/choir concerts, plays or on the soccer field. Through the years, he held numerous season passes to Disneyland in order to spend time with them. He truly impacted their lives; daily talking with them via phone, text or video chat. Robert was a great storyteller; his grandkids will miss his fun and exciting stories the most.


Robert is survived by his wife and best friend, Kathy Frost of Pleasant View; his children, Jenny (Tyler) Carr of Farmington, Justin (Lori) Frost of West Point and his eight grandchildren: McKinley, Whitney, Kendall, Xander, Brecon, Logan, Robert & Jaxen.


Robert is also survived by his three siblings, Brent, Kenny & Joanne.


A memorial for Robert will be held in April.  Details of the memorial will be sent out via Facebook and email. Please leave contact information with the family.


Robert was an incredible husband, dad and grandpa (Papa).  He will be missed.  Although too short, he had an amazing, happy life…Robert lived “the dream”.

Kathy - I was so sad to read of Robert's passing. He always had a smile and was friendly to everyone. In high school you were the little sister I never had - you too had a smile or laugh for everyone around you. It was fun when you, Robert, and your kids were in our ward and I grew to know you even better. He was way too young to pass but you have memories to last a lifetime. You truly did "live the dream". My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Love to you, Sharon Tomlinson

When I saw the picture of Robert,I thought "WOW" that is a great likeness to the same Robert that I worked with at Hill Field way back in the late 60's....we lost contact with each other until a chance meeting at Carl's Junior in Riverdale last year and then early October at Winco in Ogden and was shocked to hear of his illness but optimistic of the out come and was looking forward to catching up on all the past years he spent in Alaska.....but I can't express my sadness at his passing "the good die young" I will be looking forward to deepest condolences to Kathy and family....... the 'other' Robert F.

Saddened to read of Robert's passing. My sincere condolences to the family. I so enjoyed meeting Robert and socializing with him & family when I purchased the Roy home in 1994. A few visits after that provided me such fun in talking to such a personable, friendly, good man. To the family, focus on & remember all the joys & happiness he brought in this life. I'm reminded of his sparkling personality each day, as I enjoy living in your former Roy home !

Dear Kathy, I am so saddened to hear of Robert's passing. When we talked in Costco a few weeks ago you had indicated the it looked pretty bad. Robert said he felt pretty good but we could tell in your eyes that you were very very concerned. I remember during our growing up years how much fun I had with Robert and his family. I also remember all the great work associations I have had with you. Your great Alaskan adventure was truly a dream come true for you both and I always enjoyed hearing of your adventures. I wish you nothing but the very best. Love Bob

Kathy, My mom, Mary McKenna, just called me and told me of the passing of your husband.. I just wanted to let you know of my sympathy and concern. I know it's been many years since we have seen or heard from each other, but my mom always kept me up on your life. She talked to Edna regularly, and Edna would tell her about many of your adventures. I remember good times with you and the way you could get everyone around you to laugh. I'm sure you have brought a lot of joy and happiness to many. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. Maybe sometime we can talk or even see each other again. Love ,Karen
