Gregory Glen Frostad
Kenai resident Gregory Glen Frostad died Saturday, Jan. 19, 2008, at the home of a friend in Kenai. He was 50.
An informal memorial will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at Our Lady of the Angels Parish, 225 S. Spruce St. Kenai. A memorial service where his family will spread his ashes off the Kenaitze beach will be held in June. They also will spread his ashes in the oceans of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii at a later date. Family and friends who would like to be notified of the June memorial may e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mr. Frostad was born Dec. 2, 1957, in Anchorage to Norman G. Frostad and Sheila A. (Johnson) Frostad. He graduated from West High School in 1976. He moved to Kailua-Kona, in 1978 and resided there until 1985. While in Hawaii, he worked in the island tour industry.
"He and his co-workers entertained many tourists with humorous story telling and singing during tours," his family said. "Greg lived most of his remaining years in Kenai and had most recently been employed with ESS Services as a bullcook. He was happy in his employment, lived with his loyal dog named Smokey and had many friends who loved him."
He spent time fishing the beach in Kenai and working on his model cars and airplanes. He also helped friends in the area with maintenance and building projects.
"My child is free. Free from remorse, and regrets. Free from needs never met. Free from demons deep inside. Free from weakness he could not hide. Free from hungers never fed. Free from pain my child is dead. Free at last to feel our love. Free to see us from above. Free to know our doubts and fears and know our failures through the years. Free to touch our hearts still broken. Free to hear words of love unspoken," his mother said.
He was preceded in death by his father.
He is survived by his mother; sisters, Brandi and Monika; and brother, Erik Frostad.
Condolences may be mailed to P.O. Box 52118, Big Lake Alaska 99652.
