Jacob Friesen



Passed away peacefully at the age of 91, while surrounded by family, on May 23, 2015 at Westview Place in Penticton, B.C. Jake was predeceased by his loving wife May in March of 2013. He will be lovingly remembered by his children, Joyce (Warren), Don (Mary) and Debbie; his grandchildren, Robert (Doris), Mike (Laurel), Heather (Trent), Andy (Sandra), Patti (Clayton), Sherri (Keith), Melissa (Chris); his great grandchildren, Laura, Victoria, Charlotte, Kaylee, Dorian, Alexander, Cole and Howie; his only living brother, Hank (Tina) along with many other family members and friends. Jake was an amazing, loving, caring and hardworking man. Dedicated to his loving wife May; his children and all additions to follow. He was very successful with the company he built (Glacier Builders). He had a hand in building Penticton with the Trinity Centre, and the Penticton Art Gallery as well as many apartment buildings and homes. Once retired, Jake spent time doing woodwork in the shop and caring for his cherries. Now with a very free spirit we let Jake go to God and re-unite with his wife. He will forever be remembered and live within our hearts. A Service to Celebrate Jake’s Life will be held on Saturday, June 13, 2015 at 11 a.m. at Concordia Lutheran Church, 2800 South Main St., Penticton. A special thanks to the wonderful caregivers at Westview Place. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
