Fritz Kitowski

Fort Collins - Ferdinand Harold Kitowski (Fritz) was called home to Jesus on February 12, 2021 at the age of 84.

Fritz was born to Carl and Bernice Kitowski on April 26, 1936 in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. As a child Fritz was very active with sports and loved the outdoors. He enjoyed spending time with his parents and his six siblings. After attending St. Norbert College and graduating with a Finance degree, Fritz joined the military as a proud member of the United States Army. He began his career in banking and always enjoyed working with numbers and investments. After a few years in banking, Fritz went on to work in sales with Allis Chalmers Farming Equipment for seventeen years. When his sales days were finished he continued his business career by working as a finance manager for Lextron Animal Health for the remainder of his working years before retiring.

Fritz met his wife of twenty years, Eileen Bartosch in Wisconsin in 1968. They married two years later in 1970, moved to Colorado in 1972 and went on to have two sons Dan and Mike. In addition to being a loving father, Fritz was an avid tennis player and skier. He was a very dedicated Catholic and was involved in many ways with his church. Throughout his entire life Fritz held an unwavering faith in God, which he shared with those who surrounded him.

Fritz joins his parents Carl and Bernice Kitowski in heaven. He is survived by his children Dan and Mike Kitowski (Melissa Kitowski); his two grandchildren Crew and Adysen Kitowski; his brothers Dennis Kitowski (Mary Kay Kitowski), David Kitowski (Paulette Kitowski), Jerome Kitowski (Lori Kitowski); his sisters Carol Botsford (Bruce Botsford), Elaine Kitowski and Mary Kitowski; and many nieces and nephews.

Recitation of the Rosary is Monday, February 22, 2021 at 10am; with Memorial Mass following at 10:30 am at St. John XXIII Catholic Church, 1220 University Ave, Fort Collins CO 80521

My wife Sharon and I enjoyed talking sports with Fritz when the Senior Center Sports Club was active. I also enjoyed seeing him at the "old guys" tennis events for many years. Fritz was always friendly and upbeat. It seemed he lived quite a full life.

I enjoyed my many interactions with Fritz playing 'old guys basketball' at the Atzlan Center over the last 10-15 years. He was a real gentleman, even during the 'heat of competition', as well as being a good player. My condolences to his family. Ed Bender
