Four children: Christine Frost of Turlock, CA, Mike Frost and wife Judy of Bentonville, AR, Lori Boyd and husband Marty of Pea Ridge, AR, and Carrie Frost of Pea Ridge, AR.

He is preceded in death by his father, David L. Frost, two brothers: Robert Frost and Dale Frost, one son, Dean Allen Frost, and one grandchild, Raymond Arevalo.
David attended Gratton Elementary and Denair High School, in Denair, CA. He loved taking care of horses in his youth, and even used to ride one to school. He married Margaret “Kathy” Blackard on June 20, 1970, and lived in California until 1984 before moving to Seligman, MO to farm and haul feed. He worked hard as an independent owner-operator for fifty-six years, hauling his last load just three weeks before passing away. This is a testament to his strong work ethic. He loved farming, family and friends. His hobbies consisted of collecting guns and full-sized tractors. Dave never met a stranger and could strike up a conversation with anyone no matter where he was. He will be missed by all who knew him.
