Stanley Frolich Sr, December 24, 1924- December 14, 2018.

Stanley Frolich Sr. passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side, just days before his 94th birthday.

He was born in Superior, WY, to John and Johanna (Tomazavich) Frolich, where he lived until he graduated from High School.  He met the love of his life and high school sweetheart, Lila Husak, and they married in December 1943.  Together they had four children. They remained married until her death in March 1993.

Immediately after high school, he went to work in the coal mines and later worked in the trona mines.  Stanley was also an entrepreneur and co-owned and operated Frolic’s Enco service station and later a radiator repair shop in Rock Springs with his brother John.  He retired from D&D Converters in 1989.

He moved back to Rock Springs four years ago for health reasons, where he enjoyed going for rides, cookies, and making lasting memories with his family.
