A memorial service will be held Nov 5th at 12pm at Wildwood Church. The family has asked that memorial contributions be directed to Our Father’s Storehouse, a food pantry ministry of Wildwood to the community.
Dear Church Family,
We were saddened to learn this morning of the passing of David Fritz. He went into cardiac arrest on Sunday due to what doctors believe was a sudden blood clot.
You might remember him as the man who nearly every Sunday could be found standing at the very front of the sanctuary swaying with outstretched hands during worship.
He was passionate about Jesus and His Word. He served others with a humble heart changed by God’s Word and taught others to better understand God’s Word. His heart touched not just our own church family, but the larger church family in our community and our world.
Dave was an instructor for the Center for Biblical Studies here in Tallahassee, a member of the Wildwood world missions team, and leader of the African Book Project to collect Bibles and resources to send pastors and church leaders in Africa.
“But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep.”
May we find hope in the same promises of God’s Word with which Dave Fritz encouraged so many others.
