Fritz, James Arthur 'Jim'

James Arthur Fritz, born May 3rd, 1951 in Walkerton, Ontario, passed away in Grey County at age 70, on November 5th, 2021.

James “Jim” Fritz was the most selfless, devoted, trustworthy, kind, ethical, reliable, caring and loving person his children, grandchildren, family and friends could ever imagine.  He was humble, quiet, hardworking and highly intelligent.  He was strong and did not complain or boast.  Those who knew him well, know that helping others was what he enjoyed most.  He was a role model Father and Poppa who did his very best, giving everything, to help his loved ones.  He cared deeply about the people and their families at Tenneco.  He is dreadfully missed, and we will love him forever, for always, and for all eternity.

Beloved father of Jason and Brad (Lisa) Fritz.  Cherished grandpa of Reilly, Briar, and James Fritz.  Dear brother of Mary (Murray) Cassidy and Anne (Rick) Nielsen and brother-in-law of Gwen (Peter) Fritz.

Jim will be remembered by nieces and nephews Stacey, Marsha, Laura, Cliff, Chris, Cheryl, Shauna, Deanna, Joshua, Katrina, many cousins, and his friends (especially Mark).

James was predeceased by his parents Arthur Anthony Fritz and Mary “Rita” Fritz (nee Lang), and his brother Peter Fritz.

    We were very sorry to read of Jim’s passing. I worked with Jim for many years at Monroe and had the highest respect for him. He was 100% reliable. The kind comments about him in his obituary describe the Jim I knew and liked. He was a pleasure to work with. His community and family will miss him, as do we.

    Please accept our sympathies on Jim’s passing. We were good friends in the 60’s. Jim and Pete would bike down to our end of Chepstow and we would chat and talk about everything. Bikes, Cars, girls:) We played ball together for the Aces in the late 60’s, early 70’s. Jim could hit with the best of them and was fast out in the field. He covered a lot of ground. I remember one time later, Jim had just bought a new Toyota Celica and we had a race at the east end of Chepstow. He was proud as punch of that car and it could go too. Rest In Peace, Jim, old buddy.
