Robert Fritz, 75, of Rockland, passed away on June 3, 2022 at home after a lengthy illness.
He was the son of the late Robert and Geraldine (Larkin) Fritz.

Bob grew up in Weymouth and later Dorchester. He valued education and graduated high school from Newman School for Boys in Boston. He worked his way through college earning his Bachelor’s degree from Boston College, all while raising his young family.

Bob was a man of many hobbies. As a younger man, he enjoyed playing softball and umpiring league games. Bob balanced long work hours and his volunteer work with Rockland Youth Soccer as both coach and Registrar. He was an avid reader, history buff, movie fanatic and loved computer games. He was a lover of all Boston sports franchises, especially the Boston Red Sox. Bob shared a special place in his heart for his dogs Midnight, Chief, Sadie, Max and Macy.

Bob and his wife loved to travel; especially to tropical destinations. They frequented the Caribbean and particularly loved Hawaii making it there on six separate occasions. While there he loved snorkeling, beaches, photography and sunsets.

Upon retiring from Oracle Corporation, Bob and Marianne would like to spend winters in Aruba. He finally had the time to do his woodworking creating a tables, storage chest and planter for family to enjoy.
