Fritz, Nicholas-September 28, 1922 - August 19, 2006 . It is with regret that the family of Nicholas Fritz announce his sudden passing on Saturday morning. He died peacefully at home with his wife Hilda (nee Brock) at his side. February 1, 2007 would have been their 60th Wedding Anniversary. Also survived by daughter Valdora (husband Greg Fellowes) of Dundas and daughter Nancy (husband Eddie Tubbs) of California. His grandchildren Lauren (husband Mike Kowalski) and Amanda and Daniel Tubbs will always remember his passion for news and current events and will forever picture him, newspapers in hand, commenting on this crazy world we live in. Nicholas was a veteran of the Second World War 1939 - 1946. He served with the Regina Rifles and the Queen's Own Rifles. He landed at Juno Beach on D-Day and despite having been wounded at Bernieres-Sur-Mer in France, continued with the campaign to Holland. Corporal Fritz was awarded the Military Medal for his contribution to the liberation of Europe. He continued to serve in Europe for six months after the war's end and returned to Germany in 1951 for a further year of post war reconstruction. By this time he had a young family but continued his military service by participating in the Korean conflict 1954-55. Nicholas rarely talked about what he was required to do during the wars but we know that he was proud to have served and honoured to have done his duty. A career soldier, Nick continued his military duties throughout Canada and in Germany with the Queen's Own Rifles, the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry and the Princess Patricia Light Infantry. Retiring from the army at the rank of sargeant in 1972 he embarked on a second career with the Canadian public service with postings to Ottawa, Sweden and Romania. Finally ending work in 1994 Nicholas and Hilda settled in Dundas where they enjoyed small town life but continued to have big city adventures. Born in Alberta, Nick was raised on the family homestead with his four sisters, Mary, Pauline, Ann and Olive and brother Bill. On the rare occasions that they got together they loved sharing their memories of life on the farm. Nick's father parted from the family many years ago and mother, Dora passed away in 1985. Nick will be missed by Hilda's extended family of Brocks. He never shared their passion for cards but he would have defended their right to play. A special thank you to Mary and Ray for "being there". At Nick's request there will be no funeral service but family and friends are invited to a gathering at the home of Valdora and Greg Fellowes, 6-30 Osler Drive, Dundas, Ontario on Wednesday, August 23 from 2:00pm.
