David Gene Fritz, 62, of Green Forest, AR went to be with the Lord in the early hours of Sunday July 5, 2020. He departed for the next life surrounded by his two sons, daughter-in-law, and his best friend and soulmate of 40 years. He was born on May 4, 1958 to Clarence and Maxine (Hosier) Fritz in Wichita, Kansas.
David was 1976 graduate of Alpena High School. He met his wife Teresa through mutual friends and dated until they finally wed on April 19, 1980. He worked at Hudspeth Motors then Clay Maxey Ford as an auto body technician for 43 years. A job he truly loved doing and was one of the best at. He also loved his grandchildren, his children, and a small electronic and solitaire game that got very little of a break over the years. He was loved by all that knew him and will be missed by just as many.
David was preceded in death by his parents and 3 brothers, Tom Bill Fritz, Patrick Joseph Fritz and John Michael Fifield. He is survived by his wife Teresa, of Green Forest, and his son Joshua of Green Forest, his son and daughter-in-law Joseph and April of Huntsville and his grandchildren Kylie, Nichole, Cameron, and Mikhail.
