Daniel “Danny” Carl Fritz
On Thursday, January 14, 2021, Daniel “Danny” Carl Fritz, amazing brother and loving father of 3 beautiful children lost his fight against cancer at the age of 39.
Danny was born on October 30, 1981, in Merriam, Kansas to Bruce Fritz and Cathy Lindquist. Danny grew up playing baseball with the neighborhood kids and made many lifelong friends during this time. Along the way, he developed a passion for fishing, fixing cars, and anything that went fast. Danny worked for Albert Tam Lumber at the time of his passing and took a lot of pride in his work. Behind the wheel or on the water were two of his most favorite places. Danny will always be remembered for his snappy comebacks and ability to always joke even when things were challenging. His humor and laughter could truly light up a room. Words don’t begin to explain who Danny was as a person and every person he met; he made a lasting impression on.
Danny was preceded in death by his mother, Cathy Vinzant. He is survived by his daughters Anastasia and Isabella, and his son, Zachary, his father, Bruce Fritz and stepmother, Diana Fritz, sister, Sarah Kates and her husband, Danny, and many other extended family members including his dog, Mylo.
I’ve finished life’s chores assigned to me,
So put me on a boat headed out to sea.
Please send along my fishing pole
For I’ve been invited to the fishin’ hole.
Where every day is a day to fish,
To fill your heart with every wish.
Don’t worry, or feel sad for me,
I’m fishin’ with the Master of the sea.
We will miss each other for a while,
But you will come and bring your smile.
That won’t be long you will see,
Till we’re together you and me.
To all of those that think of me,
Be happy as I go out to sea.
If others wonder why I’m missin’
Just tell ’em I’ve gone fishin
