Albert's Story

DEXTER - Albert H. Frost, 96, a graduate of Corinna Union Academy (with honors) in 1936 was a former resident of the area. He and his family, the Winfield Frosts, farm and potato shipping folks made their home in Corinna and Dexter. Albert was from a long line of "Mainers," starting with George Frost, who, although he was born in England about 1600, had his domicile in Maine (then Massachusetts) thereafter. Albert was the tenth generation from George, of Maine men, who were born and bred in the state. Al was born in Dexter, Maine, on May 30, 1918. He died on May 29, 2015 (one day shy of his 97th birthday).

Albert attended the University of Maine and graduated in 1941. At that time during, WWII, he was recruited by the War industries which were headquartered in New Jersey. He began employment in New Jersey and was followed there by his first wife Charlotte B. Lunt of Dover-Foxcroft. They were soon married and had two children: Sandra and Gregory.

Many years ago Albert took an "altar call" at the Dover-Foxcroft, Maine, United Methodist Church and was thus a follower of Jesus Christ.

Though Albert and his family remained residents of New Jersey, they took many visits to and vacations in his beloved MAINE. In the words of the University of Maine "Stein Song"..."LET EVERY LOYAL MAINE MAN SING" to the glory of wonderful, beautiful Maine and in honor of a loyal and good "son of Maine."
