Frosty gave me a wonderful opportunity to share with his team back in 1990. His influence on my coaching and way of handling and motivating people lasts to this day. His book "Make the big time where you are" still has an impact on me today. I mourn his passing and rejoice that he's with our Savior.
September 02, 2013
Scott, You and your family are in my heart and prayers. Having only met Frosty once and you giving me a copy of each of his books, that he signed to me, is precious. He was truly a wonderful man.

My sympathy to the Westering family. Most people don't realize what a successful basketball coach Frosty was. I played for him at Elkader High School (52-56) where we went 46-5 the last two years. Coach was a great influence on my life as a high school coach all the way to my position as a college president. Rest in peace.

We have lost and Heaven has gained a great man of love and Character. You do not have to look very far in our area to see how Frosty raised his family and changed lives here in the Northwest. I have had the privilege to see Frosty speak many times always leaving inspired. To the family and extended family of players and friends....may his love for God, family and friends remain with you til we meet Frosty again with our Lord Jesus Christ.
April 27, 2013
Thanks to all the Westering family for the many memories over the years, from Fairfield, Iowa to Albert Lea, MN. and on to PLU. Frosty had such an impact on our lives, which has, also, reached our kids...his faith, love of life, smile, his two books, just being him. Our deepest sympathy goes out to you. We love you, Donna...Holly, Susie, Bred, Scott, Stacy. God's peace be with you!

Frosty, you helped me grow from a teenager that didn't know, to a man over the span of four years. Your principles have been the rock in my work ethic, my relationships, and my family. I am forever grateful for you and your staff taking the chance on a young kid from Puyallup. Attaway Frosty - that you for all you did for me and I hope you are enjoying coaching Nellie!!!
April 23, 2013
I will always remember his smile and enthusiasm and good nature. My condolences to the family. May God comfort you.

I am so sorry to hear of coaches passing, yet so blessed to have had him in my life. In the spring of 1970 he came to Nevada School to be the main speaker at our athletic banquet. As soon as I heard him I knew I wanted to play for him. He gave us all a chance to reach our full potential, not just as football players, but as men. I am still using Frosty's lessons in class and on the field. I viewed the man as a second father, I think most of his players did the same. He was such a kind competitor, we had to do things the right way for the right reasons. He made me a better person than I even thought possible. Take great comfort in knowing that God allowed such an influence in our lives. Thanks Frosty for all the lessons and may God grant you and your family peace. EMAL

Frosty gave me a chance to continue playing football at Lea College. Frosty taught us life skills and values that have pushed us to heights we may have thought unattainable. You left your mark on so many, you will be missed. Thanks Coach EMAL

As a freshman on the player-hire committee for a new football coach we interviewed Frosty. That night I went back to Ivy, had a dream and woke up with a purpose. Frosty started strong and the longer we played the stronger we became.
April 21, 2013
FROSTY SPOKE AT OUR CHURCH BANQUET-MT VIEW LUTHERAN CHURCH- BACK IN THE 70S OR 80S AND DID HIS SPOON HANGING FROM YOUR NOSE TRICK. HE HAD EVERYONE DOING IT. WHAT A RIOT! HIS JESUS CENTERED MESSAGE WAS CLEAR. WHAT A GREAT MAN!
April 21, 2013

April 21, 2013
My condolences to all of the Westering family. I cannot explain in words the impact Frosty had in my life. What an honor to have been coached and mentored by such a great man. It amazes me how I see his impact almost daily in not only my life, but in others I work, coach and live with. God worked in mighty ways through him, and his legacy will endure many years into the future.

I met Frosty as a 5th grade football player at Central Community Schools, Elkader, IA and again when he arrived in Seattle for the PLU coaching position. I well always know that he remembered me no matter time passing, I wish the family the best, he is an inspiration to learn and live by.
April 20, 2013
Scott, I'm so sorry for your loss. May the God of comfort be with you and your family during your time of grief. My prayers go out to you and your family.I remember growing up in Parkland and meeting Frosty in Junior High School. Cannot remember anyone saying anything bad about Frosty. RIP. The world needs more men like him.
April 19, 2013
Frosty was a great influence to so many, I feel blessed to have been a freshman bomber, a student in his bowling class, and a student trainer working with the football team. He will be missed, but his mentoring will continue touch many lives.
April 19, 2013
Enjoyed following Frosty's career and successes, both at Lea College and at PLU. Every time a story appeared about Frosty it served as a reminder of how to live life in a positive, caring way and still be successful! He is a great role model for all!
April 19, 2013
Donna and Frosty changed my life forever, Jesus called me to follow Him through the PLU Football program and they both taught me to be a servant warrior! He would tell me to take what I have taught you and then make it a life style! Thank you coach, Thank you Donna We love you, #63 Lar

Coach was one of the 3 most important people in my life. I played for him at Fairfield High School in the late 50's. He went on to become a customer of mine later while at Parsons college. I sold him a new Ford Station Wagon at 1:00 in the morning in 1963 because he was watching football tapes until then! God grant him peace. Coach was a great messenger for Him!
April 18, 2013
I had the privilege of being on Coach Westering Last High School Team he coach at that level in FairfieLd, Ia High School.
He taught me many values that I still practice today and past along to our Children. He will be dearly missed, but those values he instilled in young people will go on for generations.
April 17, 2013
Like ripples in a pond, Frosty touched so many lives both directly and indirectly. We celebrate his passing to be with his Lord and Saviour.
April 17, 2013
I'm pretty sure Frosty lived a very fullfilling wonderful life, as a husband,father,grandfather,coach,christian man....Good life and now even better with our Savior Jesus Christ! ;)
April 17, 2013
I have only seen Frosty once on campus at PLU, but his humor and hearing more about him was an inspiration. May God Bless and be with the Westering Family.
April 16, 2013
I never met Frosty, but am so inspired by his example for all of us as he lived (as stated by a friend) by taking the higher road through the journey of life.
April 16, 2013
I had the honor of knowing Frosty for many years. He always had a kind word and a smile. One minutes with Frosty, and you walked away feeling better about yourself. He was truly a man of God, and he was not shy when it came to sharing his Faith. He will be missed.
April 16, 2013
RIP, Coach! My father coached with Frosty in Fairfield IA and had a big influence on his 37 year coaching career. These types of coaches don't come along often. The family should be so proud of his legacy.

Prayers, condolences and love to the Westering family and EMALs everywhere. This man changed my life. Thank you Frosty!
April 16, 2013
I had the pleasure of being involved at PLU as a cheerleader back in 1977. Frosty's wonderful spirit and amazing ability to inspire young adults was contagious. I vividly remember being included in a few Sunday dinners at his family home with his wife and kids. Those "attaway" cheers were his trademark. What a life well lived!
Peace.

I wasn't even a Lute (I was a Linfield Wildcat) but Frosty's "Atta-ways" will always bring a smile to my face - thanks for the wonderful legacy.
April 15, 2013
Condolences to Frosty's many Friends and Family. I was lucky to be able to sit in on a class Frosty taught once at Washington High about Positive Mental Attitude.. He forever changed my life.. Frosty will never be forgotten.
April 15, 2013
Hi Frosty . You came to P.l.u. after i left but you made every man a lute . You reminded me that evey day is a day of choices . Choices that can be a positive endearing motivation to all around us . I felt happier when i made a good choice . You made my life complete because i made others smile . Thanks for the memories and when i awake all i will have to do is think of you and all the good choices ahead David Larson class of 1970

Coach Westering was a great person and I remember his great words of wisdom he gave the athele's at the Rotary Club in Everett in 1993. I was amazed how much he said in a short period. My son commented on the great speech. I introduced myself and he made me feel like he knew me for years. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family on a great loss. God Bless your family.
April 14, 2013
Brad,

The last time I saw you was when I was in college at Moorhead State,1970something. I happened to be leaving my parked car to head back to the dorm when PLU was playing against MSU Dragons. I was walking along the south side of Nemzick Field when I saw you run a play that won the game for PLU. I can now easily imagine the joy your father felt at that moment. I am certain there were many other moments,too. I think, as a father, I know my life is finite, and I often wonder what impact, what legacy I will leave on this world. Then I see my children, and my children's children, and imagine the generations beyond that, and take comfort and joy in the unfounded knowledge that the kids are all right. I am confident your father felt the same way.
April 14, 2013
May you find comfort in the Hearer of prayer at this time. Psalm 65:2
April 14, 2013
To my dear friend Brad my heart goes out to you and your family there are no words I can say to help heal your heavy heart at this time but you can take confort in knowing that the Lord is good and your dad is at peace and he has touched so many people that his legacy will live on forever.

In 1950 I played baseball for Harlan, IA and we played Missouri Valley,IA and Frosty was their coach. I watched and listened to him coach the other team and his words and actions were copied and used in my subsequent 35 years of coaching youth baseball--he was one terrific person! Recall that from 63 years ago---Great to follow him at PSU----against Linfield--great games!! Take care!

'The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all...So, all that your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for there is no work...nor knowledge in the grave.' (Ecclesiastes 9:5-10) Frosty seemed to know this, and thus lived with all his might, doing good and being good to others. May we all aspire to do the same.

Frosty was a customer of mine at First Interstate Bank in Parkland. He always had a smile and was genuine. I will never forget how humble and kind he was. He was a truly great man. I know exactly where he is. Kay Bettencourt

I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I knew Frosty for many years. In my broadcast career I had the privilege of broadcasting his games on cable tv for 8 years. I came to know him well. I have never failed to interview him on my radio football broadcasts of 40 years. I did interview him last fall at a Puyallup football game that frosty attended. he was always kind, complimentary and one of the most sincere people I have ever met. I had great respect for him and he for me. He presented me with a copy of his book and signed it by saying "enjoy the adventure, you are a pro." I cherish that book and the words he wrote.I will miss him as will all who knew him. A legend, a bigger then life man, who touched countless lives in so many ways. A humble and inspiring person. So long Frosty, it was truly great to have known you.
