Darryl Wayne Frost, 48, was born December 26, 1965, to the late Billy Joe and the late Brenda Seay Frost of Duncan, South Carolina. Darryl went to be with the Lord on November 20, 2014.
Darryl joined the Town of Duncan Fire Department on February 11, 1986, at the age of 21. He served this department as a volunteer for 28 years. Darryl served the fire service along with his father, brother (fire chief), and two nephews. His dedication to the community was endless. Darryl has reminded us that his greatest accomplishment was serving those in the community and those in their time of need. Darryl never met a stranger and was always willing to lend a helping hand to all. It was often said “he would give you the shirt off his back.”
Darryl’s countless hours in training and responding to incidents was not all he dedicated himself to. Darryl was incredible in helping with the homeless around the town and county in which he lived. While for some it may be a temporary situation, living without a place to call home is not an ideal situation for anyone. Darryl was always making an effort to make a difference for these people. Whether it was buying tarps for shelters or buying clothing and food, his generosity and continued support was always noted. This truly defines the meaning of community service to all.
Darryl is survived by two brothers, Mike Frost and wife Terry, and Chief Barry Frost and wife Lori; two nephews, Creighton and Jon Michael; four nieces, Courtney, Erin, Rebekah, and Cassidy; three great-nephews, Rylan, Chance, and Paxton; and one great-niece, Caleigh.
Darryl was a son, uncle, brother, and friend to many in our area. He will be extremely missed, but we are blessed to have had him for 48 years and know this because of his love and support for our family and community. Darryl would want us all to continue helping others in need and always put others first.
