We have to mention some of Fritz’s accomplishments because he was such an exceptional person and was most proud of his Navy term in WWII from August 26, 1944 to June 26, 1946 where he received the following: American Campaign Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal, Navy Occupation SVC Medal, WWII Victory Medal, Philippine Liberation ribbon, Honorable Service Lapel Button. He coached Little League Football and Baseball, served as a Choir Boy for St. Luke’s and St. Barnabus Church, served as an Altar Boy for St. Barnabus Church, and participated in the Big Brother Program. Fritz worked many years for Twin Disc and retired at age 62.
Fritz will be remembered by his family and friends as a man who left a 91year trail of laughter, generosity, compassion and wisdom.
We want to give a special thanks to his caregivers and especially his son Paul.
