Robert Frost


Robert (Bob) Frost, originally from Princeton, WI and a longtime resident of Port Washington, WI, passed away at Evergreen Nursing Home and Care facility in Oshkosh on Saturday, March 8. He was 63 years old.

Robert was born on March 25, 1950 to Sylvester and Marion Frost in Berlin, WI. After attending grade school and high school in Princeton, WI, Robert received his degree in Elementary Education at UW-Oshkosh in 1973. Immediately upon graduation, he was employed as an elementary and middle school teacher in the Port Washington-Saukville School District. Bob was united in marriage with A. Beth Marcely on January 26, 1973 at Our Lady of the Lourdes in Marinette, WI. The couple moved to Saukville in 1973 and later to Port Washington in 1976. Mr. Frost taught primarily 5th and 6th grade at PWSSD for 32 years before his retirement in 2005.

Robert was an avid golfer, spending many days in the summer playing golf at Hawthorne Hills. He was an avid hunter, as well as bowling, playing recreation softball and volleyball. He was also a fan of the Brewers, the Packers, all of the Badgers sports teams, and the Intimidator, Dale Earnhardt.

Robert was a member of St. Peter of Alcantara Catholic Church, until the diagnosis of Parkinsons Disease and Louie Body dementia forced him to move to Oshkosh for further treatment and care.

Robert is survived by his mother, Marion of Princeton, and two sons: John (Noelle) of Burnsville, MN, and David (Anne) of Myrtle Beach, SC. He is further survived by his brother Alan (Cindy) of Oshkosh and their children Catelyn and Bryan Frost, and four grandsons: Spencer & Brendan (John) Frost, and Zachary & Jakob (David) Frishmuth, former wife A.
