WALLY FRITZ, beloved husband of 66 years to Florence Fritz of Lethbridge, passed away suddenly at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Friday, September 19, 2014 at the age of 88 years. Besides his loving wife, Wally is survived by his sons Darryl (Diane), Derrick (Joanne), Darcy (Kathy) Darren (Lorna) and daughter Wendy (Joe), 11 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Wally is predeceased by his parents Alma and Earl Fritz, as well as Donna Campbell. Wallace was born June 9, 1926 in Lethbridge. He received schooling in AB and graduated in BC. Upon returning to Lethbridge, he met the love of his life, Florence Osberg and they were married in 1948. Wallace entered the milling industry and became a manager for Ellison Milling for over 40 years. Wallace loved spending time with family and traveling with Florence and their daughter. He enjoyed gardening and was thrilled by donating it to whoever wanted to eat it. Wallace was a hard working, caring man who will be sadly missed by his family and friends. A Private Family Graveside Service was held at Mountain View Cemetery. Thank you to Dr. Lowe and his staff for taking care of him. By his request, no funeral will be held.
