FRITZ MARK WAYNE of West Bloomfield, passed away October 2, 2012. Beloved son of Barbara Fritz and the late Charles Fritz. Brother of Tim (Ann), Jock (Patti), Niki Gleason (Kevin), Becky Willis, Charlie (Suzy), and cherished uncle of eighteen nieces and nephews. Mark enjoyed and excelled in a 37-year career in Broadcast Sales with ABC, FOX, and retired from Westwood One Radio Network in 2008. He was an accomplished acoustical guitarist and pianist, collected and sold museum grade antiques, enjoyed golf, landscape design and care, and played basketball throughout his entire life. The Walnut Lake area kids will sorely miss a 6'6" Mark playing Count Dracula at his front door on Halloween. For further information, please call A.J. Desmond & Sons, 248-362-2500.

My deepest sympathy to the Fritz Family. Mark was a great neighbor and friend for the last 20 years. Not only did he take my son and another young friend to the Tigers game. He had a picture taken and presented the beautiful picture framed to the boys! Just on small example of Mark being wonderful, thoughtful Mark.
I will not forget the hug I got from you on 18 "south" after we beat the favorites, Lou Reid and Charlie Fritz. I miss you my friend. God be with the entire Fritz family.
Mark was the beloved Godfather of our daughter Elise, and our friend for over 40 years. When he lived in Los Angeles he filled our lives with supreme artistic endeavors. He shared his music, love of antiques, athletic competitiveness, and sympathies of the heart. When we last spoke we decided to gather together at least twice a year, to continue our soulful friendship into our golden years. May he journey now in peace, on the wings of angels. Forever in our hearts our love for him sings.
We send our sincere sympathies to the family of Mark. We have known Mark for many years here at Walnut Lake. He was always very kind and interesting to talk with. He took pride in his lovely garden and landscaping. He always talked about how he loved spending time with his nieces and nephews. He will surely be missed!
Sending my deepest sympathy to the Fritz family. I know Mark through the advertising industry and he will truly be missed.
To the Fritz Family: I am an avid collector of fine antiques and fine art in Chicago. I have never seen such a fine collection as Mr. Mark Fritz. After reading his legacy tribute online, I can truly see that he was a remarkably gifted, accomplished man, and he raidated a wonderful spirit and an infectious love for a beautiful collection. I just recently purchased, at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, a small pair of his beautiful verneered binocular/opera glasses,Carl Zeiss Jena. I will cherish the beautiful opera glasses collection and be forever joyed in knowing that it too was cherished by Mr. Fritz. May Mark peacefully and enternally rest in loving peace, as his collection has found spirited homes with wonderful and spirited caretakers all over the world. My Warmest Wishes of Peace, Love and Happiness to the Family David M. Lewis, Chicago email@example.com
