Frank Fritz Jr.

In the early morning of Oct. 23, 2021, Frank Fritz Jr., Butch to his family, passed away. He was tough and stubborn right to the end. In his last moments was comforted by family.

Frank was the final surviving child of Frank and Mae Fritz. They were a family of 3 boys and a girl. Born in Milwaukee in 1948, his first job was working at his family owned gas station alongside his father. Frank enjoyed watching football and would often tell stories of his high school career at Milwaukee Washington. Their offensive line was larger than both the Packers and Badgers his senior year.

In 1990 Frank purchased Lakeview Grocery and Bait Store. He and his son Brian moved to Sugar Camp after several years of vacationing on Long Lake at the family's cabin. He remained a resident of Sugar Camp until his passing.

Frank worked for many years at Pitlik and & Wick and was proud of his time and work there. He loved fishing on Mill Lake and spending time with his children and grandchildren who all live in the area.

The family would ask that any donations be made in Frank's name to the American Cancer Society.

A visitation for Frank will be held on Friday, Oct. 29, 2021 at the Carlson Funeral Home from 1 to 3 p.m. You may leave your private condolences for the Fritz family at The Carlson Funeral Home (715-369-1414) is handling the arrangements for the family.
