Dr. Horace Calvert Frost passed away of pneumonia on March 9, 2005 at St Mary’s Hospital. Arrangements were made for his remains to be buried at the Inglewood Park Cemetery in Inglewood, CA, near other family members.

Born in Los Angeles July 23, 1924 to Arthur Williams Frost and Mary Koch Yocom, Dr. Frost attended Manual Arts High School in Los Angeles and spent two and a half years in WWII as a Marine Raider where he received three Purple Hearts on Sugar Loaf Hill, Okinawa, in 1945. He was a member of the Marine Raider Association, a board member of several community associations including Special Olympics, Sierra Assisted Living Foundation and Douglas County Senior Center where he was respected and admired.

Dr. Frost obtained his bachelor and master degrees in education from USC and his doctorate from BYU. He had a long and distinguished career as an administrator with the Los Angeles Unified School District. Upon retirement, he, his wife Janice, and son Scott moved from Los Angeles to Minden to be near daughter Mary, son-in-law Danny Wright and three grandchildren, Glenn, Karena, and Evan Wright.
