We remember Fritz and Karin with love in our hearts and joy in our minds. Fritz participated with the San Fernando Valley Arts Council, soon after his arrival in the valley. He opened his home studio to the public via the Valley Artists Studio Tour, which was an annual event for many years. I smile when I think about his telling us, how people wanted to stay and chat, so it was difficult for him to make the reception on time. Fritz loved exchanging stories about his family, notable chefs, and life in Europe.

The Studio Tour provided visibility and Fritz received two commissions, as a result. One from the MTA and from the CRA. When Fritz lost his beloved Karin, the sparkle left his eyes, and his life changed forever.

His art enriched our lives and that of the community. We were privileged to have known him and call him a friend.
