James Friesen Death, Obituary – James Friesen of Steinbach, Manitoba, has reportedly died unexpectedly with loved ones, family and the entire community left heartbroken and in grievance. He received his diploma from George Fox College in 1978, and it was there that he also made the acquaintance of Cindy Whitaker, who would later become his wife. Following their engagement, the couple finally tied the knot in 1980. Both Jordan and Matthew were chosen to be the names of their children as soon as they were born and brought into the world.
Jim’s brain tumor was discovered the summer before last, and eventually he came to the conclusion that it was best for him to resign from his position as chief of the information technology department at ESD 112, which was located in the Kelso School District. Jim was a talented musician who was proficient on a wide array of musical instruments, including the piano, which he played exceptionally well. In addition to that, Jim was skilled at playing a diverse array of other musical instruments.
Reading, going to new places, spending time with his family, attending his boys’ lacrosse games and coaching them, researching his family tree, and experimenting with various plant species in his garden were all things that brought him pleasure. He also enjoyed spending time with his boys playing lacrosse. Jim was an honorable man who was known for his generous nature and sharp mind. His love for his sons and daughters-in-law was unwavering, and he never wavered in his commitment to provide for his family.
Throughout his entire life, Jim was able to testify to the goodness of God and share this testimony with others. We are able to find comfort in the knowledge that he is now in the presence of the Lord and that we will, in the end, be able to rejoice in our everlasting reunification with him. He will be sorely missed by everyone.
Jim is survived by his wife, Cindy; son, Jordan, along with his wife, Jerolyn (Mofford), and granddaughter, Harper Joy; son, Matthew, along with his wife, Caity (Kuntz); sisters, Marilyn Strunk and Kathy Holmquist; and brothers, Roger Friesen and Charlie Friesen. Jim was preceded in death by his parents, Roger Friesen and Charlie Friesen. Jim’s father and mother, Roger and Charlie Friesen, both passed away before him. Matthew, who was preceded in death by his father, is survived not only by himself but also by his wife, Caity. Jim was predeceased by his son (Kuntz).
