So sorry to hear this, we were friends long ago at Michelin, I remember his smile and laugh also funny jokes. We had fun times and I am sure he will be missed by many. Praying for all the family that God will ease your pain and supply you with His love and comfort! I as well as y'all will see him again on the other side! God Bless

Linda - I am so sorry for your loss, it is difficult to believe. We all know what a great guy Fritz was and the tributes from friends below just confirm what we knew. I hope that they give you and the family some comfort. May God hold you close during this season of life. Praying for you all and I will see you Saturday.

Linda, Jason, Jeff and the rest of the Baldwin family. Our sincere condolences from clan Drummond. I had the privilege of knowing and working with Fritz for 14 years and 6 more as friends. He always had stories to tell and would help anyone in need. My thoughts and prayers are with you in these difficult days ahead.
Marc, Rhoda, James, Matt, Katie and Amanda.

This is sad news. Fritz and I worked together at Michelin Tread Technologies located in Covington, Georgia. He was a good friend and fellow nuclear submariner. He will be missed by many. My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.

Fritz and I were coworkers for one year in Covington: Fritz was the old pro and I was a new guy (FNG as we would say in the Navy & Marine Corps!), and he brought me up to speed by his tireless efforts. He was a true friend and I will miss seeing him at future Michelin retiree events. Prayers to all his loving family.

Fritz, we may not have seen each other in years (OK maybe decades) however, I will never forget your smile and I can still hear your laugh - having spent 39 years at the big M, many people cross in and out of your path, however, I was honored to have worked with you (back in the day) and call you a friend ... RIP & Hugs to your entire family
