Ray Fritz

March 13, 1939 — May 31, 2024

Ray Fritz, 85, beloved father, grandfather, and brother was called to his eternal resting place on May 31, 2024. He entered this world on March 13, 1939 in Grand Saline, TX, born to Albert and Onnie Fritz.

From the time Ray was a young man, he worked with his hands and was constantly creating something out of nothing. He was always tinkering and building and repairing something. Even in his retirement, he continued finding things to fix. In 1983 he started a transmission business that is still family owned and operated in Gun Barrel City to this day. He always had a smile on his face and never met a stranger. He was always getting himself into adventures and was never afraid to take a risk especially if there might be a big fish involved. His passions included fishing, hunting, billiards, gambling and finding a garage sale deal.

He is preceded in death by his parents Albert and Onnie Fritz, wife Nancy Fritz, siblings Doris, Tinna Mae, Nancy Ann, Walton, daughter Christina Aubry, and great granddaughter Hailey.

He is survived by his children Dennis and Debra Fritz, Margaret and Gary Harrison; brother Clarence Fritz; grandchildren Jeremy and Erica Fritz, Jennifer and Chris Waller, Shawnna and Angie Sanchez, Gary Don Harrison, step-grandchildren Jonathan and Kara Reed, Victoria Zaiger; great grandchildren Brock, Tripp, Mattie, Desiree, Julia, Nathan, Avery, Blake, Shyann, Ryver, and Izzy; his great-great grandson Leonardo; brother-in-law Gerald Rawlinson; and sister-in-law Shirley Rawlinson.
