Fritz moved to The Villages in November of 2011 to be near his son, David. 

Fritz was an avid sports enthusiast. While in high school, he played football and baseball. He loved playing golf, cards and bowling and made many life long friends. He was a life long Detroit sports fan and continued following the Tigers, Lions and Red Wings while living in Florida. Fritz had a great sense of humor. He loved a good joke and would often respond with full belly laugh.

He is survived by his son, F. David Kaiser of The Villages; a grandson, Derek Kaiser of Leonard, Michigan; and three great grandchildren; brothers, Kenneth Kaiser, David Kaiser and Donald Kaiser. He was preceded in death by a brother, Robert Kaiser.

A memorial service to celebrate the gift of his life will be held in Michigan at a later date. Friends who wish may make memorial contributions to American Diabetes Association or the American Heart Association.
