Martin “Marty” J. Fritsch Jr., of Perry, passed away on April 11, 2022, at the age of 68. He was the beloved husband of Rollin L. Jarrett.

Survivors include his husband, Rollin Jarrett; stepchildren, Lisa (Richard) Craxton and Rebecca Dowd; three grandchildren, Jessica (Jason) Sinkovic, Joseph Craxton, and Courtney Dowd; siblings Cathy (Mike) Pietila, Debbra (Vic) Peroni, and Michael (Sarah) Fritsch; and dear friend Mary Jo Jarrett. Marty also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, and sisters and brothers-in-law. He is preceded in death by his father, Martin Fritsch, mother, Mary Ann Fritsch, and nephews, Marc Ackley and Mike Harwood.

    I just found out about “Bubby”. You all have my deepest sympathy. He was always so much fun, when we got together, as children! I can still hear his laughter! Your cousin, Cynthia
