    I just ran across this- a bit late, my condolences. Bob Frost was my supervisor from 1982-1987 at Lanier, first in Arlington, then in Fairfax VA. He was such a wealth of knowledge about the theater, the stock market, and of course, Oktoberfest! He is remembered very fondly. Rest In Peace, Bob Frost

    A farewell party at the Renaissance in Falls Church right before Mr. Bob moved to Florida. He was always the life of the party, and loved by all of his neighbors. Bob and all the ladies...that's how his legend is remembered in our building. Thank you for sharing him with us for the short time we got to have him at the Ren. Know he touched many lives and that you are thought about today!

    Mr. Bob was loved and respected by his many friends in Falls Church. He was the life of the party, a caring neighbor, a generous friend, a willing helper. Mr. Bob always had a joke to tell...some of them naughty...some nice...all in the spirit of friendship and joy. The children at the Ren all knew him as an enthusiastic playmate, someone who was happy to stop and chat. We all treasured him for the twinkle in his eye, and the warmth of his heart. Rest in peace, dear friend.
