Robert S. Frodsham, 75, of Ocala, FL and formerly Ashley, PA, passed away on Friday, March 26th 2021 following a brief illness. Bob was born in Westchester County, NY on January 12th, 1946. After graduating from Madison High School in Madison, FL, Bob studied at NYU, graduating with a major in English and a minor in Economics. He would later complete all coursework toward a master’s degree in Finance from Pace University. While at NYU, Bob was a member of the Zeta Psi fraternity where he forged lifelong friendships that endured through his final days.
After teaching English in Madison, Bob worked as a loan officer in New York City and later the Wilkes-Barre, PA area. He finished his career selling commercial real estate for Mericle in Northeast Pennsylvania before retiring to Florida. Throughout his career, Bob was active in his local Kiwanis club and other charitable efforts.
Bob enjoyed airplanes, antique cars, and time spent with fellow enthusiasts of the same. He possessed a sharp wit, a firm command of language, and an encyclopedic knowledge of trivia.
