Worked with Fritz in the basement of City Hall for over a decade, never a dull day with Fritz around. I remember the time when Fritz asked for my help on a call from St Cloud State, seem that 3 german sheppards were being detained by campus police, when we arrived the dogs were in the cop car and the campus security was standing outside. Fritz knew these dogs and opened the tail gait on the truck, I opened the back door on the cop car and the three dogs just hopped in the back of the truck like trained animals. Never forget the look on the faces of the campus cops. RIP Fritz

Fritz was so much more to me than just my uncle/godfather. He was my friend. Fritz and I enjoyed many conversations together, we would reminisce about fun times we had together and about Auntie Marge. We would laugh so hard at times about the silly things that had happened. Fritz was always teasing me and loved to joke around. I will always cherish my memories of staying at their house when I was a kid. I remember always having such a fun time. Fritz would sit outside with me and his gentle demeanor (and a handful of peanuts) would bring the squirrels and chipmunks right up his pant leg to sit on his lap to eat. Fritz was filled with gentleness, kindness and loving care. After Marge passed, Fritz and I continued to to build an even deeper bond. We frequently called each other and had the opportunity to travel together to Atlanta to visit cousin Janelle and her family. This past April, Fritz had planned a trip to Arizona To come and stay with me. His nephew Mark was helping make arrangements. That trip never happened because of Covid-19. We then decided hed visit this Fall/winter and unfortunately this trip too will not occur. I have so many more memories of Fritz and could write pages. His laugh, his smile, his hugs, his sense of humor, his blunt way of saying things, his kindness and love will forever be in my heart. Uncle Fritz will be missed beyond words. I take comfort in knowing he is now reunited with Auntie Marge, Princess and the rest of his family and friends. Im sure he already found his special fishing spot and is loving family gatherings.

Look at that smile..all their church photos would turn out so nice. our condolences to all the family and friends of Fritz..he is now with Margie and all his family members in heaven..We never realize how little time we have here on earth..so important to be kind to one another. Fritz was an active man on a bowling team and got out often until covid ..it was lonley to live alone. when younger Fritz owned a nice camper that he used with his wife for fishing and relaxation. He had good friends that took him places and he appreciated that. He and Margie were Godparents to many of their nieces and nephews.. we used to meet at Perkins in SaukRapids or St. Cloud for a meal and lots of coffee when mom was in the memory care in Sauk Rapids...I dont think he liked rest homes!! He will be remembered for his kindness and compassion to all of us..sympathy and prayers to both sides of his family.
