FROST, Chris Michael age 58, of Centerville, Ohio passed away on Sunday, May 10, 2020 at Cleveland Clinic after an extended illness.

Chris was born May 8, 1962 in Jamestown, OH to Larry Frost and Carol (Binegar) Schraml. Chris was a very loving, gentle, funny, caring man, who gave freely of himself to anyone in need.

He loved soccer, and was a coach for many years for Centerville Rec Soccer, and served as their director for the last 2 years. He shared his love of country music, the New York Jets, and baseball. Chris & Christina owned Frostco Construction for 27 years, and retired when his health became too much to continue in the excavating job he loved. He will be missed by those lives he touched as family, friend, coach, and surrogate dad to many.

Chris is preceded in death by his beloved brother Ty, his maternal and paternal grandparents, Uncles Bob Napier & Howard Hennigan, step-mother Linda Frost, in-laws Eva and Harold Fetter, and sister-in-law Theresa Kennedy.

Chris is survived by his wife and soulmate of 35 years, Christina (Fetter) Frost, and was a proud and loving father to his daughters Lauren and Lindsey who were his pride and joy. He is also survived by his mother Carol, father Larry, siblings Terry (Mark Crookham) Frost, Craig (Cheri) Frost, Nicole (Jeff) Downing, and Natalie (Mike) Terrell; nieces and nephews, Kelly, Justin (Alexandra), Matthew, Brittany (Allan), Marissa, Connor, Eryn, Ashley, Ty, Sarah, Nicole, Nathaniel, Nichole (Brian) Jacob and Noah Barnard, Brendan (Mary) Richey; brother-in-laws Julius Fetter and Michael Kennedy. Chris is also survived by extended family of aunts, cousins and lifelong friends whom he loved dearly.

Chris’ friendship will be something I cherish for the rest of my life. He had that ability to always bring a smile to your face even on the worst of days. May god rest his soul.

I remember coming over one Easter and we all gathered around the table with nothing but laughs, joy, and good food as we all un-rolled the Saran wrap ball with little goodies inside.... No matter the circumstance Chris was always there to make others laugh and smile. He turned their day into a great one, he will be missed.

Chris, you've been part of the fabric of my life for most of my life. Every visit with you and Christina and the girls started and ended with the best hugs in the world. I always appreciated that you and I would have a quiet chat at some point during every visit, just getting caught up with each other and usually with you giving me terrific advice. You did justice to every hat you wore--husband, father, son, brother, friend. Watching you go through your life taught me lessons in kindness, generosity, and patience.

It's been a privilege, sir, and you will be sorely missed.

There are many people we come to know in life. Some leave little impact upon you and some simply make you and the world better! Chris was a person that simply makes you and the world better! He always showed wisdom, love, happiness, patience, and gratitude. He saw the best in others and had an uncanny ability to see the silver lining in everything! Oh, and when he smiled... the world smiled with him!

Chris, we will all miss you here on earth but we look forward to seeing you in heaven!

In the meantime...Christina, Lauren, and Lindsey will continue to make you proud.

We Love you Chris, Christina, Lauren, and Lindsay!

Love Always,
Nancy, Lauren, Lindsay, and Megan Stoops

Christina, Lauren and Lindsay, our hearts go out to you for your loss of such a great man. Chris always had a smile on his face watching him coach the girls on the soccer field from the time both Lauren and Annie were in second grade. I’m so glad our girls remained such good friends all these years and Annie loves Lauren like a sister and was very fond of Chris. Love to all of you from all of us.

Kelly, Annie, and Patrick

I never know quite what to say. I'm so so sorry for your loss, I know your hearts are breaking, but know that Chris was loved by so many. I never saw him without a big smile, joking and laughing, and give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. I know we might not have seen each other as much as we used to but you guys were and will always be in our thoughts and in our hearts. If you need anything please do not hesitate to ask. Sending our love.
