Gary H. Fritz Obituary
Pawcatuck - Gary H. Fritz, 65, of Pawcatuck, husband of 28 years to Melanie (Kulaga) Fritz, died Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018, at home after a long and brave battle with cancer.

Born in Westerly, he was the son to the late Raymond and Alice (Clay) Fritz and was a lifelong resident of Stonington.

He was employed with Aquarion Water Co. for many years as a water treatment operator, prior to his retirement.

Gary spent many years working with the "soupy crew" to make the perfect soupy. After his retirement, Gary spent weekends mastering the art of meat smoking for Sunday dinners with his "family."

In addition to his wife Melanie, Gary leaves a sister, Laura Breed of New Mexico; two nephews, Norman Breed and Jeffrey LoPresto; two nieces, Carolyn Coffey and Kathleen Boney; and two brothers-in-law, Christopher Kulaga of Mystic and Mark Kulaga and his wife, Dot, of Thompson and Stonington. He was predeceased by a sister, Dale LoPresto.

Funeral services and burial will be private, at his request.

As Gary was a lover of animals, especially cats, please consider a donation in his memory to Stand Up For Animals, PO Box 1706, Westerly, RI. 02891.
