Thomas Harry Fritz (Tom) 72, passed away, Sunday, October 3, 2021, surrounded by family at Presbyterian Hospice Medical Center. He was born September 19, 1949, to Harry W. Fritz, Jr and Margaret Jean Fritz.
Tom graduated with honors from Mercersburg Academy in 1967 and Dickinson College in 1971 where he was a member of Phi Kappa Sigma Fraternity. Tom recently retired as President of Fritz Equipment Service. He will be remembered for his fun loving, quick-witted personality. He was an avid New York Yankee fan and amazed friends with his memory of the players, scores and baseball in general. He also will be remembered for his love of music. Tom had an extensive collection of music and found joy in creating CDs for those he loved. His knowledge of music was amazing, and it took a lot to stump him on music trivia questions. Tom was a dog lover and prided himself in not missing a day taking his 2 dogs, Barney and Reece, for their daily walks.
Tom was preceded in death by his wife of 37 years, Margaret and his father Harry W. Fritz, Jr.
He is survived by his two loving daughters, Mary Kondratowicz (Ryan) of Woodstock, Ga., and Sarah Haraveth (Dave), of Mint Hill, Ga., his faithful companion, Hope Powers, Concord, NC, grandchildren, Alaina, Levi, Ezra, Mariah and Josh Kondratowicz, mother, Jean Fritz, Charlotte, NC, sister Ellen Fuller (Donnie), Buford, Ga. brother John Fritz (Linda), Mint Gill, NC, Uncle Jim Cox (Arvella) Cumberland, Md and several nieces and nephews.
The family wants to thank Hospice for their caring support they provided to Tom. A special thanks to Val and Jin and their team who were always there to answer questions and offer kind words.
A celebration of life will be held on October 2021 at 2:00 pm at Wilson Funeral and Cremation, 5301 Albermarle Road, Charlotte, N.C. Tom requested in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Humane Society or the SPCA.
