It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of James Bruce Friesen on November 5, 2017 at the age of 57. Survived by his loving wife Teresa Friesen; daughters: Elishia (Jimmy) Moore, Angiel Friesen, Amanda (Marc) Turcot; sons: Eric (Collin) Friesen, Andrew (Crystal) Friesen; grandchildren: JR and RJ Moore and Payten Friesen; sisters: Lauranne (Wayne) Saffron, Linda Sehn, Sylvia (Randy) Pawluk; brother Ric (Mad) Friesen, as well as his mother Dorothy Friesen. Predeceased by his father Raymond Friesen and brother Neil Friesen.
James spent many years as a truck driver, covering many miles through Canada and the US. His first love was construction, which he shared with his family and passed down to his sons. James took great pride and joy in his family, especially little Payten, who stole his heart and filled his weekends with crackers and lego. He was taken too soon and will be missed by his entire family.
