Following high school, Fritz attended The Ohio State University / Agricultural Technical Institute at Wooster and then began a long career in the transportation industry. Fritz possessed a great interest and found joy in following any form of auto racing that took place on an oval track. He owned and sponsored a sprint car that became very successful competing in the All-Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car series with driver Dale Blaney and crew chief, George Fisher. Fritz had formerly attended the First Christian Church at New Philadelphia and was also a member of the Beach City Post of the Sons of the American Legion.

In addition to his parents, Fritz was also preceded in death by a brother, William “Bill” Andrews.
