Tom was born on September 30, 1954 in Dubuque, Iowa as the son of Albert and Bernice (Speak) Frost. He married Lee Ann Schaller on September 7th, 1974 and they were married for 46 years. Tom worked for Eagle Window and Door and after 16 years, decided to venture out on his own and opened a thrift store, Frosty’s Curious Goods in which he has been operating for the last 15 years. Tom also owned numerous properties in Dubuque where he was a wonderful landlord to many tenants over the years. He loved people and people loved Frosty.
He was a jack of all trades, was self-taught and would always figure out what he was working on. He always said, “you learn by trial and error”.
He is survived by his wife Lee Ann; three sons Thomas (Dawn) Jaeger, Joshua (Janna) Frost and Terry (Jamie) Frost. Thirteen grandchildren, Hayley, Aaron, Dominic, Chandler, Gabrielle, Terry Jr, Justice, Gavin, Abigail, Jackson, Gillian, Nathan and Aidan. Five great grandchildren, Jaxon, Anastasia, Sebastian, Daphne and Audrey. Tom was a brother to five sisters; four surviving are Kay Nelson, Carol (Dale) Dieters, Sheila (Jerry) Shireman, and Mary Frost.
Tom was preceded in death by his parents; one sister Betty (Ingles) Miller; two brothers Kenny and Mickey and his father-in-law Clarence Schaller.
His family would like to give special thanks to Unity Point Finley Hospital and their staff for all their care in helping Tom with his courageous battle with Lung Cancer.
