William Harold Frost History

by Evelyn Frost Rush

Bill was born in Fredonia, N.Y. and educated in the Warren, PA Public Schools. He was a member of the Demolay young men's club and played on the Warren High School football team.

After high school graduation, Bill obtained employment with the New Process Company (now BLAIR). He drove the delivery truck between the company and the Post Office. He and Bettie were married in 1935 and later moved to Hamburg, N.Y. where they resided until Bill's mother died in 1947. They then moved to Westfield, N.Y. to help with the work on his father's grape farm. In 1956 Wilson died and the farm was sold. Their final move was to Albuquerque, New Mexico where Bill became a Quality Control Engineer with ACF Industries, a
position he held until his retirement.

Bill led an active life. He had come to love the desert country during a visit there in his youth. The family spent much time hiking, camping, and enjoying the area. Bill was also a fine mechanic and enjoyed mechanics as a hobby. At one time he gained recognition by building a high powered "Goat," a two wheeled machine capable of climbing 45 degree grades with ease while carrying upwards of 500 pounds.

Bill and Bettie were divorced about 1959-60. In 1961 he married Mary Murphy and adopted Mary's daughter, Lisa. Mary had had an interesting, if turbulent life. Her first husband, Hap, was killed in WWII shortly after they were married. She was divorced from her second husband (Adam Wisniewski), father of Lisa. Mary had an interesting career working in the military and living in many interesting places around the world in that capacity. Bill, Mary and Lisa had some good years together.

Bill died in Albuquerque in 1968 of a type of cancer which was very similar to Hodgkins Disease.
