Dr. James "J" George MoellendorfFebruary 13, 1953 ~ March 26, 2017 (age 64)
Dr. James “J” Moellendorf, 64, of Sturgeon Bay, passed away, on Sunday morning, March 26, 2017.
He was born February 13, 1953 in Antigo, the son of the late George Emil Otto and Tabea Ruth (Thormaehlen) Moellendorf. J, as he was known to family and friends, was a graduate of Antigo High School in 1971 and class valedictorian. J was an accomplished photographer, operating his own photography business until he eventually followed in his family’s tradition of chiropractic medicine and graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA in 1983. He received his Doctorate of Naturopathy in 1996 from Trinity School of Natural Health. Dr. J moved to Sturgeon Bay shortly after graduation to start his chiropractic business, the former practice of Dr. Ziemer’s. He was a speaker for various chiropractic conferences across the United States. His first book was published in 2012 and his latest book in 2016.
On December 22, 1984, he married Sharon L. Delsart in Sturgeon Bay. He was a member of the Peninsula Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. J fully enjoyed the ministry and teaching others to love the Bible as much as he did. He and his family shared in building places of worship of Jehovah’s Witnesses known as Kingdom Halls. Dr. J also enjoyed model train collecting and constructing model railroads with his son, Matthew.
J had a quiet strength, tempered with steadiness and selflessness. This was evident in how he approached his patients, as his treatments were tailored to treat the whole person. He was always available for them at any hour or day of the week.
J is survived by his wife, Sharon; two children, Pamela Hensgen (Richard, husband) of Columbus and Matthew of Sturgeon Bay; a brother, Dr. Jon Moellendorf (Carol, wife) of Wausau; two sisters, Faye Thuot (Calvin, husband) of Wausau and Beverly Pittelko (Roger, husband) of Elk Grove, IL.
