Weldon G. Frost, age 86, of Longboat Key, Florida, and one-time seasonal resident on Mountain Run Road, passed away on July 2, 2017, from complications of Pulmonary Fibrosis.
He was born Jan. 28, 1931, in Kane, Pennsylvania, the son of Drs. Max Weldon and Elizabeth (Goble) Frost, and throughout his life felt fortunate to have attended the DuBois school system. He received the scholarship award made by the Colorado School of Mines to a student in Pennsylvania, and, after graduation, he worked his entire career for Mobil Oil Corporation as a petroleum Geologist and Vice President and Exploration Manager for various Mobil affiliate companies. His career took him to Texas, Venezuela, Libya (twice), Turkey, French West Africa, New York, Paris, Indonesia, New Orleans and London. He was one of the pioneer reconnaissance geologists in Libya in early 1954. Following retirement from Mobil he did consulting work in Equatorial Guinea, Turkey, Russia and Romania, as well as parts of the United States. He also formed Frost Energy Company, the largest energy company on Longboat Key, which kept him involved part-time in the professional activity he loved. He was a member of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, the Geological Society of America and the Longboat Key Kiwanis.
In June 1968 he married a pretty English secretary, Brenda Taylor, also working for Mobil in Tripoli, Libya. The romance lasted the rest of his life, and they traveled the world together. They had two fine sons, both of whom were born in Libya.
Survivors include his wife, Brenda, of Longboat Key; sons, Terrence with wife Rene and children, Max and Jolie of Denver, Colorado, and James with wife Kate and son, Hudson, of New Smyrna Beach, Florida.
He was predeceased by his sister, Billie Mae.
