!OBIT: William Keith 'Bill' Frodin

    JEROME - William Keith "Bill" Frodin, 49-year-old resident of Jerome, passed away Saturday, Dec. 16, 2006, as the result of an auto accident.
    Bill was born Jan. 25, 1957, in Denver, Colo., the son of Alvin Keith Frodin of Goodland, Kan., and Beverly Marilyn Inman of Flowery Branch, Ga. Bill moved to Idaho at the age of 14, graduating from Raft River High School in Malta, Idaho. He served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Bolivia, Santa Cruz Mission. After returning from his mission, he worked in the Malta area for farmer Rodney Hall. It was at this time he met the love of his life, Karin Mortensen, with the help of well meaning matchmakers in the Malta gas station. To this marriage were born two sons, Curtis James and Tyson Keith Frodin.
    Bill attended the College of Southern Idaho and worked in the agriculture consulting–industry until the time of his death. His customers were his passion and focus in life. Bill knew no strangers in life and was a friend to everyone. His quick wit and teasing antics were a trademark to friends and family. No one escaped "Uncle Bill." Bill could be found wherever there were kids. His goal was to never grow old. Bill loved the outdoors and enjoyed fishing and hunting with friends and family. He was devoted to his family and always found ways to surprise or make them laugh. He loved to cook and liked nothing better than to grill up a good steak for friends. Bill will be forever in our hearts and minds.
    Bill is survived by his wife, Karin; his sons, Curtis James (Mindy) Frodin and Tyson Keith (Yazmin) Frodin. He is survived by his parents; seven brothers and sisters; many nieces and nephews; and one grandson, Jace, who was the light of his world.
    The funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 21, at the Jerome LDS Stake Center, 26 N. Tiger Drive in Jerome. Family and friends may call one hour prior to the service. Interment will follow in the Jerome Cemetery. Arrangements are under the care of Farnsworth Mortuary, 1343 S. Lincoln, Jerome, ID 83338.
