Maurice Cecil Frost


Maurice Cecil Frost, 91, died June 2, 2020, at Brewer Rehabilitation and Living Center after a short stay. He was born in Mariaville on Dec. 29, 1928, the son of Elwood J. and Flora (Edgecomb) Frost.

Maurice served three years in the U.S. Army. After returning, he held many jobs. The one he retired from and everyone remembers him from was as the maintenance supervisor at the Hancock County Courthouse, where he made many memories and friends.

After retiring, Maurice was always busy and on the go. He enjoyed snowmobiling, spending time at camp, gardening and spending time with friends and family. He was a member of the Lygonia Lodge and the Anah Shriners, where he was Ernie from “Sesame Street” for 20 years in the Funster Unit.

He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Ellain (Jordan) Frost; son, Jeffrey J. Frost and wife, Starr; and daughter, Ann Frost Batson and husband, Harold. He also leaves behind three grandchildren, who were his pride and joy and he had a special nickname for each, “Boy” Scott Frost and his wife, Jessica, of Houston, Texas, “Punkin” Krystal (Frost) Leighton and her husband, Andrew, of Ellsworth and “Cherokee” Stephen Batson of Otis. The love of his life in later years were his five great-granddaughters, Jordan Frost of Houston, Texas; Olivia, Piper and Paylin Leighton of Ellsworth; and Bostyn Bailey of Florida. He is survived by sister, Corace Bunker and husband, Sterling, of Ellsworth; sister, Alta Tate of Ellsworth; brother, Clyde Frost of Bucksport; sister-in-law, Joan Jordan and husband, Philip, and their family; sister-in-law, Becky Jordan and family; and sister-in-law, Ann Jordan and family. He is remembered fondly as Uncle Maurice by many nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews. He will also be greatly missed by many good friends and neighbors. Maurice was predeceased by his parents; his brothers, Earle Frost and Laurence “Pudge” Frost; his sisters, Ida Whitmore, Vera Awalt, Hilda Jordan and Evelyn Dunham; and brothers-in-law, Perry Jordan and Ronald Jordan.

There will be a family and friend gathering to remember Maurice at a later date.
