James Robert Freeman was born March 20, 1954 in Moorhead, MN to Robert Lea and Ione Haroldson Freeman. This Norwegian boy's early years were spent ice skating, playing guitar, singing with the Moorhead High Carolers, participating in Demolay and spending summers at the lake. After graduating from high school in 1972, he attended Moorhead State College (now U of MN-Moorhead) where he made many lifelong friends in the TKE Fraternity. Jim met his wife Kim in a freshman English class and took her on their first official date on his 19th birthday. The couple wed in Sioux Falls, SD on August 24, 1974.\n\nIn 1976, Jim transferred to North Dakota State University to complete his pre-med studies in preparation for attending Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. After graduation from Palmer in 1981, he worked as an intern and associate prior to opening Orange Grove Chiropractic in 1983. In addition to his Chiropractic license, Jim completed extensive postgraduate studies earning certifications as a Chiropractic Sports Physician, Physiotherapist, Independent Medical Examiner and Chiropractic Orthopedist. Jim felt honored to care for his patients and greatly missed that relationship these past few years.\n\nJim and Kim's partnership in life spanned 44 years as they raised three amazing daughters: Rebecca (Christopher) Meyer of San Diego, CA; Kathryn (Joseph) Tauscher of Dallas, TX; and Jacquelyn Freeman of Colorado Springs, CO. The family made wonderful memories with backyard BBQs, snow skiing, camping in the woods, singing around the campfire, playing in the water at Rocky Point and Lake Roosevelt, and visiting family and friends in Minnesota. The addition of grandchildren Summit and Vika Tauscher and Hannah and Leland James Meyer brought great joy to "Papa's" life.\n\nAlso grateful for sharing his life are brother Richard (Carol) Freeman of Fargo, ND and sister Barbara (Craig) Stephens of Dallas, TX.\n\nJim's favorite hobby was spending time in the air. He earned his private pilot license in 1990 and flew on many cross country adventures with his family in his Piper Arrow. The family lived in La Cholla Airpark for 23 years. On the ground, Jim's greatest calling was playing his guitar and singing. While he loved many genres of music, he felt most fulfilled playing Christian music with the St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church worship team for 15 years. The Freeman family have been members of St. Andrew's since 1993.\n\nWe are thankful for the many wonderful memories we shared with Jim during his life's journey. His spirit will continue to live on inside all of us.\n\nMemorial donations may be made to the St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church Playground Fund.
