Saturdays with Marshall

Marshall Fritz died peacefully at home Tuesday, November 4, 2008, after a months-long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 65. He will be missed.

Read more about Marshall and access links to tributes.

By now, you have probably heard the bad news that Marshall Fritz, as he likes to put it, "Has picked up a wee touch of terminal pancreatic cancer." Doctors give him 6-20 months with 50:50 chance of living a year. It's in the liver. It's inoperable.


His spirits are great and you can read his "Bucket List" at .... and even post a message to his guest book.

Now the good news!

In June we held two wonderful events to celebrate Marshall's life. Family and friends from every aspect of his inimitable life gathered at both events to pay tribute to Marshall ~ Husband ~ Father ~ Friend ~ Hail Fellow! Well Met! 

And ~ We're still celebrating Marshall's life!!!

If you were not able to join our celebrations - or even if you were - you can see some of the pictures and relive our Saturdays with Marshall:

Fun and festive Fresno BBQ on Saturday, June 7

Hollywood gala and tribute on Saturday, June 21

Keep checking back! As we get more pictures, we'll keep adding them to the website!


By the way, you can still share your favorite Marshallisms, stories, and well-wishes by sending us an email.  We'll add your tribute to our Memory Book for Marshall.


Thanks again to everyone who helped make our "Tribute Nights" such very special evenings for Marshall. The energy of the people was exciting! The movement Marshall has poured so much into will be carried forward by just such energy.

We hope you will be carried forward with us!
