Richard Johnnie “Ricky” Fritz

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our son and brother Ricky on January 24, 2016 at his home in Fruitvale, BC. Ricky was born in Princeton, BC on June 11, 1953 and grew up and went to school in Oliver, BC. Ricky went into the mining industry and worked at various mines in BC, after which he worked in the oilfields in Alberta, the U.S. and Aruba. Ricky loved fishing, reading and walking, a kind and generous man to a fault. Ricky is survived by his mother Neena Fritz of Penticton, sister Cindy (Donny) of Rossland, brother Randy (Jackie) of Bowden, and sister Michele of Penticton, niece Mandy (Tim) of Alberta and their children Taylor and Nicholas. Predeceased by his father John Fritz of Oliver

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
