Roger Frost passed away on June 16 at the age of 96, after a brief period of declining health. A proud and enthusiastic Rotarian, he was a 70-year member of the Rotary Club of Worcester, a Paul Harris Fellow, a past club president, and a past district governor. Countless times his children and grandchildren heard him recite the Rotary motto: “Service Above Self.”
Roger became the third-generation owner of Frost Stamp Works in Worcester, renaming it Frost Manufacturing Corp. and growing it from a small rubber-stamp shop to a full-service sign and stamp business. After their family was grown, Roger and his wife, Nancy Frost, moved to Holden and traveled the world, visiting more than 25 countries—often while attending business or Rotary conventions. In 1989, they were in Beijing during the Tiananmen Square protests - their hotel, just blocks away from where the massacre took place.
Calling hours for Roger are on Wednesday, June 24 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Miles Funeral Home in Holden. Masks and social distancing will be in effect. The funeral and burial for Roger will be private.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in memory of Roger may be made to: either, Rotary Club of Worcester, PO Box 3413, Worcester, MA 01613; or, Briarwood BBC Fund, 65 Briarwood Circle, Worcester, MA 01606 - with checks may be made out to Salem Community Corporation, noting that it is a memorial gift to the BBC Fund.
