LEWISTON – Nelson H. “Jack” Frost, 65, of Crowley Road, Lewiston, died Thursday, Dec. 11, at St. Marguerite d’Youville Pavilion following a long battle with cancer.

He was born in Webster on Oct. 1, 1938, the son of John and Bernice Hallowell Frost. He attended Sabattus schools, and graduated from Lewiston High School in 1956.
