Herbert Fritz Obituary

Herbert Franklin Fritz passed away on February 13, 2024 in Elkhart, IN, at home surrounded by loved ones. He was born on June 17, 1928 to Clifford Fritz and Esther Holderman. Herb married Carol Bernice Steffen in 1951, and they had three sons. He was preceded in death by his wife; sons, Randy and Jeffrey; brothers, Kenneth Fritz and Howard Holderman, Jr.; and sisters, Sharon Jennings and Genevieve Clubb. Herb leaves behind his son, Ronald Dean (Sheree) Fritz; grandchildren, Tamara (Larry) Cronin and Darcy (Roberto) Coney; and step-grandchildren, Shauna Ramer and Nick (Jessica) Ramer. He was blessed to have seven great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

Herb owned and operated Herb’s Auto Service from 1954-1974. He loved motorcycles, Cushman scooters, and fixing things in his garage. Herb was a brave Army veteran of the Korean War. Above all, he was immensely proud of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and he relished all their accomplishments. Herb loved to help other people, and he was surrounded by great neighbors and a special friend, Barb Watkins.

A private graveside service for immediate family will follow at a later date. His final resting place will be at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens, next to his wife and two young sons. Elkhart Cremation Services has been entrusted with his care.

Memorial contributions may be donated to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
