Fritz passed away from a heart attack yesterday.

He will be missed by the Motorcycle and LSR community.

R.I.P. Fritz!

Fritz was a hard core Harley racer, another loss to the LSR lakes and salt racers. RIP Fritz.

And let's not forget what a great racing family he had.  Fritz also campaigned the "World's Most Raced Roadster" (Pickup) for many years.  Great guy!

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Fritz was a good friend of my brother in law ,Fred Sutherland, who passed some years ago. I always enjoyed seeing him and his family at Fred's and at Elmo. He will be missed by his many friends. I hope Gayle and the kids carry on with their racing.  R.I.P. Fritz.

It is a stressful time for a new fellow at the race banquets, sometimes.  Always sitting down to eat with a table full of people you do not know.  One year my children and I sat down next to Fritz.  He made us feel welcome and he seemed to be a genuinely nice guy.  He also rode Triumphs.  He is missed.

So so sad for their family, and everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Fritz.
Gayle said he was at the time working on a 53 DeSoto in preparation of attending Vintage Drag Races.
We all can only hope that we are likewise doing what we love when our own checkered flags are waved.
God Speed Fritz.  cry  cry  cry...... cheers
