Fred Fritz

August 2, 1931 - September 21, 2011


On Wednesday September 21, 2011, Mr. Fred Fritz of Oliver passed away peacefully surrounded by family at the South Okanagan General Hospital at the age of 80 years.
He was predeceased by his father Joseph; mother Maria Fritz; twin brother John and brothers Frank and Victor.
Fred will be fondly remembered by his loving family including wife of 59 years Inga; his daughters Sandy (Andy), and Terri-Lynn (Chris Hanson) and his grandchildren Nicole (Rex) Jardine, Spring (LJ) Peters, Tyler (Paula) Fritz, and Patrick Fritz as well as great-grandchildren ‘Carter, Marina, Shayl and Jordyn Jardine’ & ‘Jaden and Skylar Peters & Kaytlan and ‘Damien, Lincoln and Quinn Fritz’ and Dareyon Fritz and step grandsons Jason and Nathan.
Fred was first employed at Copper Mountain with his brother Victor. He then became the USA/Canadian representative for Trump Industries. After extensive travelling, Fred wanted to be closer to his family so he became the sales rep for first Massey Ferguson, and then John Deere dealerships. In 1964, Fred & Inga purchased his mother’s orchard and in 1974, opened up Fritzville Fruit & Vegetable Market where for 30 years he enjoyed a unique relationship with each customer. Fred’s passions were curling, fishing, gardening, camping, boating and water skiing and playing his accordion. Above everything he was very proud and enjoyed and loved his great-grandchildren.
He served as President of both the Osoyoos and the Oliver Curling Clubs and as the president of the Oliver Chamber of Commerce.
Fred’s laughter will always be remembered.
A private graveside service will be officiated by Rev. Darren Siegle.
In lieu of flowers, donations are gratefully accepted for the Heart & Stroke Foundation, or the SPCA.
Condolences and tributes may be directed to the family by visiting
Arrangements entrusted to Nunes-Pottinger Funeral Service & Crematorium, Oliver & Osoyoos, BC.
