    I am so very sad to know of Fritz’s passing. He was a good man, good friend, and will be missed. I enjoyed our conversations immensely and hate to think there will be no more of them.
    My sincere condolences to Gail and other family members as well as his other friends.

    I am so sorry to hear about Fritz’s passing. He and my dad, Danny Been, we’re friends for many years. Fritz spoke at my dads funeral in April and my family was so blessed to hear his kind words on such a difficult day. Please know that your family is in our prayers.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Fritz was always able to help us keep our boats ready for the water. Much more than a businessman, he was our friend. He will be missed.
