Fred worked at Sea-Land for 31 years from 1959 to 1990.  Fred held the position of Pricing Manager before retiring from Sea-Land.  Fred (Fritz) also owned a tavern with his brother Carl called the 601 Bar on Fourth Street in Harrison, NJ many, many years ago.

 

Fred served in the US Army during Peace Time from 1954 to 1956 as an Honor Guard in Washington, DC, then in Reserves until 1962.

 

Fritz was a member of the Harrison/East Newark Elks Lodge 2326 and a member of the American Legion in Millsboro, DE.

 

Fritz spent most of his life living in East Newark, NJ before moving to Harrison, NJ for approximately nine years.  After that he moved to the community of Peninsula Lakes in Millsboro, Delaware where he lived his last four plus years.

 

Fritz enjoyed trips to Atlantic City, NJ where he liked playing the slot machines especially the Willy Wonka machines.  He was an avid Yankees and Giants fan and liked watching TV and keeping up with the News.  Fritz loved his home in Peninsula Lakes and liked sitting on the front porch or in the back enjoying the lake views during good weather.

 

Fred is pre-deceased by his parents Nicholas and Mary Delli Santi, a brother Carl and sister-in-law Rose, a nephew Raymond Sudol and a niece Linda Scuralli.

Fritz was loved by his family and friends.  He will be truly missed by all of them, including his friends in Peninsula Lakes, Delaware.
