We are Proudly
Celebrating 100 Years of Service
We are so proud to have reached this milestone. Thank you Abingdon Virginia and surrounding communities for the trust you have placed in us over the years to lovingly care for your families while bringing honor to your loved ones.
We proudly embrace tradition. In fact, the building which the Frost Funeral Home operates from is steeped in tradition and history. Like many of the historical buildings in Abingdon, Virginia, it began as a family residence. We occupy the former George G. Keller residence which was built in 1925.
In 1918, Thomas Walter Campbell founded the Campbell firm and operated from the basement of the Dagmar Hotel. In 1923, J. Paul Campbell and J.W. Huff purchased the undertaking department of Sterchi-Brothers Undertaking and Furniture Company, and operated businesses in both Bristol and Abingdon. The Campbell firm moved to the George G. Keller residence in 1937. The present day chapel was added on the east side of the property in about 1942 during World War II.
Upon the death of J. Paul Campbell in 1958, his son Sam W. Campbell began managing the firm and brought many new ideas to the funeral profession and with the transition from funerals and wakes being held at home he saw a need for a renovation that took place in the 1960’s adding a larger visitation room to the west side of the property. It was also at this time that the Campbell family ceased operating an ambulance service and turned their attention more to the serving of families. It was also during this time that Jack Frost, who is the present owner of the Frost Funeral Home began his career in funeral service with the Campbell family. The firm was operated by Sam W. Campbell until his death in 1992, at which time his son Sammy L. Campbell continued operating the funeral home.
It was in 2005, that Jack Frost along with his wife, Robin felt a calling to serve the families of their native area by owning a funeral home. On March 1, 2005 they purchased the Campbell Funeral Home and changed the name to the Frost Funeral Home. It has been since that time that the Frost family and staff have been serving the families of this area with honor and compassion.
