Jeremiah Richard Froemke was born to Gene "Bud" and Julieann Froemke in Wheaton, Minnesota on June 30, 1980. He was baptized on August 24, 1980 at Siloah Lutheran Church in Parnell Township and was confirmed on September 29, 1996 at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Wheaton, MN.

Jeremiah was a genuine, kind-hearted soul, always willing to lend a hand to help others. Jeremiah's true loves in life were Trista, Gabrielle and Bianca, who he loves and will continue to love, more than anything else in this world. A father's love for his daughter is something just a little extra special. "No one in this world can love a girl more than her father."

Jeremiah's quick-witted humor and teasing could bring a smile to anyone's face (especially his own!).

He loved spending time with family and friends at the lake. He enjoyed restoring old vehicles as well as his large fleet of boats, especially his Chris Craft wooden boat. If you were ever lucky enough to have taken a ride in it, you could see the joy in his eyes and the freedom he felt driving that classic boat. Sailing was another one of his favorite things to do with Trista, his father-in-law Kent, family and friends. Jeremiah was also a skilled woodworker and made several mahogany clocks and tables in his spare time.

His passion was developing and growing his Rusty Anchor Bloody Mary mix. He learned the art of canning and gardening from his great aunt Lucille, grandma Ilene, mother Julieann and friend Kevin O'Leary.

Jeremiah filled many roles in many lives: son, brother, husband, father, uncle and friend. We will take the great memories and experiences we had with Jeremiah and remember him always.

Jeremiah is survived by his wife Trista Whaley and two daughters Gabrielle and Bianca Froemke of Wheaton; parents Gene "Bud" and Julieann Froemke of Wheaton; great-grandmother Virginia Froemke of Rosholt, South Dakota; brothers Jonathan (Summer) Froemke of International Falls, Minnesota and Dominic (Amanda) Froemke of Glyndon, Minnesota; parents-in-law Kent and Karen Whaley of Wheaton; brothers and sisters-in-law: Jarvis (Jamee) Whaley of Burnsville, Minnesota; and Tyler (Suzanne) Whaley of Wheaton; nieces and nephews: Jake, Garret and Gracie Froemke; Keaten and Alexis Froemke; Mason Zarak; Ellie and Brenden Whaley; Samantha Whaley; and many cousins, aunts and uncles.

Jeremiah was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Richard and Ilene Lundquist, paternal grandfather Glen Froemke, uncle Bruce Lundquist and great uncle Robert Lundquist.

In lieu of flowers, an education fund is being set up for Jeremiah's daughters at Bank of the West in Wheaton.
