FREDERICK ALBERT HENRY FROST Albert Frost, of Teulon, MB, father, grandfather and great-grandfather passed away on November 27, 2014. Albert is survived by his four children Lorraine (Ron Common), Bruce (Tanis), Barbara (Miodrag Cvitkovic) and Trevor (Felicia); eight grandchildren Lauren (Scott Baker) and MacKenzie Common; Jason, Ryan (Jennifer) and Samantha Frost, Yasmin (Drew) Halfnight; Michael and Adrian Frost; and two great-grandchildren Samuel Baker and Grace Halfnight. Albert was predeceased by his wife of 63 years, Grace, his sisters, Elsie Frank and Dorothy Buskell and his grandson Damon Hartung. Dad was born at Teulon on June 6, 1921 to Albert John and Lillian Eunice (Malpas) Frost. He lived on the family farm just west of Teulon until the age of 91. Due to his father's ill health, Dad had to leave school after grade eight in order to run the farm. He always regretted having to leave school so early but the demands of a farm in the 1930s, when so much work was manual, were too much for his mother alone. All his life, Dad was proud to be a farmer. He took great care of his land and was always interested in new crops and farming techniques, although he was conservative about adopting them. Dad's father had been a market gardener in England and had found varieties of fruits that would grow in the Manitoba climate. Dad and Mom carefully maintained all the fruit-bearing plants and planted large gardens of vegetables and flowers. Dad was opposed to the use of pesticides and herbicides and as a family, we walked through the grain crops each year, weeding out wild mustard by hand, until it was impossible to get crop insurance for fields not treated with these agents. Dad did custom combining in the area and worked with many neighbours through the years to get crops off and into the grain elevators when harvest time came. In 2006, the Frost family farm was recognized by the Manitoba government as a century farm as it had been continuously farmed by our family, first our grandparents and then our parents, for 100 years. Dad met Mom in 1950, when she took a position as a public health nurse in the Teulon area. They were married on July 6, 1951. They both worked hard to make the farm viable, but the era of the small family farm was coming to a close. In order to provide for his family and supplement the farm income, Dad took work as a manual labourer in Winnipeg when roads and services were being extended to new areas of the city. Lorraine remembers him coming home covered in dirt from his hard days of work at that job. In the 1960s, Dad decided to return to school. He first took upgrading to get the equivalent of Grade 10 and then enrolled at Red River Community College for basic electronics and television and radio repair. Dad valued this chance for an education and worked hard to be successful. After so many years out of school, it was difficult at first, but he persisted and graduated from his program at Red River in 1969. What a wonderful role model our parents were on the value of education! They not only espoused the value of education, they lived it. We saw Dad struggling and refusing to give up and we saw Mom supporting and encouraging him. In the late 1960s, Dad started his television repair service and built it into a very successful business. In addition to enjoying repairing televisions, he liked the opportunity to meet and converse with members of the community. If people were unable to bring their televisions to him for repair, he would go to their homes. He always carried a television in his truck to lend to elderly or ailing customers while theirs were being repaired since the television was often their only source of entertainment and contact with the world. Dad contributed to the community as a long term hospital board member. He served on the board for a good many years. As a young man, Dad enjoyed participating in sports, such as baseball, hockey and curling. He loved playing cards and cribbage, often entering cribbage tournaments, and continued playing these games all his life. His children and grandchildren always knew a visit to Dad meant a card game and that they would lose. Dad also loved music, especially country music. He spent many evenings as a young man learning to play fiddle, piano, guitar and harmonica so he could sing his favourite songs. Dad was always interested in what his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were doing. He spent countless hours driving to our various events and watching us participate in hockey games, figure skating contests, drama events, and music festivals. Dad was always kind and gentle and always had time to listen to whatever we had to say. He could be counted on to give us calm and sage advice with whatever life challenges we were facing. We always knew that we had his love and support in whatever we were doing. We love you Dad. Arrangements are being made by MacKenzie Funeral Home of Stonewall. In accordance with Dad's wishes, a private family celebration of life will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Albert's memory to Hunter Memorial Hospital, P.O. Box 89, Teulon MB R0C 3B0. We would like to thank the staff of Hunter Memorial Hospital in Teulon where Dad was resident since Mom's passing. We appreciate the kindness and compassion shown to Dad and to us in the loss of both our parents this year. We also would like to thank Dr. Michael Loudon of Teulon, Dad's family doctor, for his care, concern and compassion for Mom and Dad over the years. MacKenzie Funeral Home Teulon (204) 467-2525
