Lester Ray Frost, 72, of Raymore, Missouri, was called home on Tuesday afternoon, May 5, 2020. He was born in Texarkana, Arkansas on July 9, 1947, to Raymond and Bobbie (Wilkins) Frost. He graduated from Arkansas High in 1965 and later went on to pursue his education in engineering, graduating from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
He was preceded in death by his parents Raymond Frost, on Aug. 2, 2004, and Bobbie Frost, on Dec. 11, 2000.
He is survived by his wife, Judy (McCoy) Frost (whom he married in 1981); one son, Donald Frost and wife Darci of Jenks, Oklahoma, and one daughter, Suzanne Miller and husband Brandon of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Seven grandchildren, Delaney Frost, Gavyn Roberts, Griffin Roberts, Colbie Dutra, Dylan Frost, Timothy “Cash” Miller and Jackson Miller; two sisters, Patricia Ann Pate of Texarkana and Ruth Maudine “Deanie” Carroll of Ashdown; and many nieces, nephews, extended family members and a large number of friends from all across the United States.
After leaving his family’s business, Frost Mattress & Upholstery Company, he pursed a career in engineering, retiring after 25 years from Orbit Valve. He enjoyed staying active and being outdoors any chance he could, and always loved making people laugh with his unique sense of humor. Some of his favorite pastimes included following his beloved Arkansas Razorbacks, bowling, baseball, fishing, gardening, going to the beach, and playing golf. In recent years he most enjoyed taking his grandchildren to Kansas City Royals baseball games and spending time with them any chance he could.
