ROGER WILLIAM FROST was born to William Thomas and Caroline Catherine (Christensen) Frost on October 11, 1934 in Omaha, Nebraska. He was baptized on April 21, 1935 at Kountee Memorial Lutheran Church in Omaha. When he was six years old, he moved with his parents to a farm near Ruthton, Minnesota where he was raised and received his education. When he was 16 years old, he was confirmed at the Methodist Church in Ruthton. He graduated from Ruthton High School in 1952. On March 9, 1953, he entered the National Guard for the State of Minnesota. He was united in marriage to Jane Taylor at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Flandreau on May 4, 1957. Following their marriage, they lived in Pipestone, Minnesota, and Roger was employed by Fecker Produce in Pipestone in addition to being active in the National Guard. He served as the 1st Sergeant of the Pipestone Unit for 25 years and was in the National Guard for a total of 41 years at his retirement on March 7, 1994. In 2015, Jane became a resident of the Good Samaritan Communities of Pipestone while Roger continued to live at home. Jane preceded him in death on October 4, 2018. Due to failing health, Roger moved to the Pipestone County Hospice House on Thursday, April 4, 2019.

Roger was an active member of Christ the King Free Lutheran Church in Pipestone. He was also a member of the VFW. For ten years, he was a member of the Pipestone Volunteer Ambulance Crew and served as its first president. He liked to fish and he liked to do lawn work and painting.
