James H. Fredericks

February 1, 1944 — August 25, 2017

James Harry Fredericks was born at the Battle Creek Hospital on February 1, 1944, to Harry Fredericks and Selma Fredericks. He passed away on Friday, August 25, 2017, at his home in Arthur, Iowa, at the age of seventy-three. On February 27, 1944, he was baptized at Trinity Lutheran Church in Grant Township where he was later confirmed on March 30, 1958.
Jim attended the country school at Grant until 7th grade. His 8th grade year was spent in Ida Grove as well as Schleswig where he ultimately graduated in 1962. After graduation, he farmed with his father until he was drafted into service with the Army in 1965. He was stationed at Ft. Belvoir, Virginia, until an illness with his father required his return home to run the family farm.
On June 12, 1966, Jim was united in marriage to Coleen Rose Neumann of Denison. They made their home and raised a family in the area where his family had first settled in 1882. Jim continued to farm until 1997, when he reluctantly retired due to the effects of Parkinson’s disease. In 2010, he and Coleen relocated to Arthur, Iowa, where the couple lived out his days until he was called home to peace and eternal rest in his true home in heaven.
Jim loved spending time with his family, farming with his dad, collecting John Deere toy tractors and visiting with neighbors.
Jim was preceded in death by his parents. Survivors include: his wife, Coleen; two sons, James Harry Jr. and his wife, Mindie; and Dennis; three daughters: Deborah and her husband, Lou; Diane and her husband, Dave; and Darla and her husband, Kayle; ten grandchildren, Dalton, Madison, Dylan,Kyle, Taya, Megan,Molly, Cody, Jordyn and Lee; aunts and uncle, Helen and Ray; and Donna; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law; nieces; nephews; cousins; and friends.
