Fremo, was born July 22, 1939, in Clarkfield, MN, to Albin and Lillian (Philipson) Fremo. Roger was born a farm boy and got a job at the Clarkfield Creamery where he learned how to operate boilers.

In 1960, Roger was united in marriage to Shirley Johnson, in Milan, MN. They later made their home in Moorhead, where together they raised four children.

He liked to travel and see new things, and to go for drives to the lakes. Roger loved to go fishing and camping. He also loved dogs and spent 35 years training, showing and teaching training classes. He has helped thousands of dogs to become good companions. Roger was a great handy man and could fix most anything. He usually had a project or two going.
