Russell A. Frost, 60, of Kingston, NY, passed away on Thursday, August 2, 2018. He was born on October 23, 1957 in Flushing, Queens the son of the late Robert and Isabel Frost. Russell was married to Christine Murphy-Frost.

Russell had many interests. He loved golfing, photography, jazz music, woodworking, and especially cooking. He mastered the art of Barbeque and was especially proud of his "beer can chicken". He recently competed and won the adult Pine Wood Derby competition at Keegan Ales. He delighted his friends with his wry sense of humor and good cheer. Above all, he loved spending time with his family, friends, and his cat, Bella. He and his wife Christine cherished their annual vacations in Maine where they enjoyed the local seafood and the wild coast. Russell had worked for Dyno Nobel for 19 years and later at Rotron in Woodstock for over 10 years.

He is survived by his wife, Christine Murphy-Frost, his brother, Keith Frost and his wife Pamela, his nephews, Jefferson Frost and his companion Laura Sperry, and Julian Frost, his mother-in-law, Pat Murphy, and his brother-in-law, Edward Murphy, as well as many cousins and dear friends.

Arrangements are entrusted to Keyser Funeral & Cremation Service, 326 Albany Ave., Kingston. A graveside service will take place at Fishkill Rural Cemetery, 801 Route 9, Fishkill, NY 12524, on Saturday August 18th, 2018 at 11:30am. A celebration of Russell's life will be announced at a later date. To leave an expression of sympathy, please visit

Chris and family, What a shock...Russ gone from this earth but never from my heart. He was so intelligent, witty, sensible and loving. I cherish my recent, unexpected meeting with him in Kingston. The Universe provided that blessing of love and joy. My love and blessings to you, Chris. I grieve with you. Barbara Phelps-McMichael

I felt like Russ was like a brother to me- and losing him at this time in our lifes is so painful. His humor was so original - such a such a funny, wry, person- yet so good natured, incredibly sweet and understated. When he met & married Chris, I was so happy. Such a lively & devoted couple. I hope to be there for Chris who is also my dear friend.

I loved working with Russ so much. His nickname was "Science" due to his ability to add obscure facts into any conversation. I'm very happy that he thought enough of our friendship to call on me a few times in the last few weeks. Until we meet again my friend.

Ursula Castiglione on Aug 7, 2018

CandleSo sorry to learn of Russ's passing. I enjoyed the small amount of time spent with him while working at Dyno. He was a common sense and humorous guy. He will be missed for sure. Prayers to the family.

Lisa Eckerlein-Bean on Aug 7, 2018

Some people leave an imprint on your heart and Russ was one of those people for me. He could always make me smile even when it was a bad day. I feel blessed to have had him as a co-worker and as a friend. I'll never forget his hysterical stories, and his wittiness. He was a very special person and I am truly thankful to have had him in my life. Russy, you may be gone, but never forgotten. Chris, you were the light of his life. My heart hurts for you.
