Fritz G. Lozier, 83, rural Argos, passed away Thursday, Dec. 19, 2019, at home after a two year battle with cancer, in the care of his family and Marshall County Hospice and Palliative Care.
He was born May 6, 1936, in Palm Springs County, Fla., the son of Harley Lozier and Marjorie Sechrist. He was a long-time resident of Marshall County, graduating from Bourbon High School in 1954.
On March 20, 1954, he married the love of his life, Beverly K. Bair. He worked various places over the years, including as a deliverer of the South Bend Tribune, milking cows for Martin Farms, and making kitchen cabinets at Coppes Napanee.
In his free time, he loved woodworking in his shop that he called “The Wood Works.” There he made countless custom ordered treasure chests, rocking horses, cabinets and quilt racks. When he wasn’t in the workshop, you would find him restoring old cars, building campers, and helping his family with home improvement projects. His friends and family knew him as a “jack of all trades”.
He enjoyed fishing, NASCAR, racing go-karts, mowing the lawn, eating cinnamon rolls with coffee, watching classic westerns and RFD-TV. He also enjoyed attending Triton sporting events as a fan of all sports and players.
He is survived by his wife: Beverly, Argos; his children: Tony L. Lozier, North Webster; Tom L. (Diane) Lozier, Windsor, Colo.; Fritzi K. Broka, Anderson; and Margo M. (Jan) Lemler, Bourbon; grandchildren: Uriah J. Graham, Quintin R. Lozier, Tyler L. Lozier, Wolf B. Broka, Orion W. Lemler, Alyson K. Lozier, Joey F. Lemler; several great-grandchildren; and sisters: Jane Hamilton, Dana; and Jami (Kenny) Yates, Bradenton, Fla.
He is preceded in death by his parents.
In lieu of a funeral, the family has arranged for cremation services.
The family requests that any memorial contributions be made to the Bourbon First United Methodist Church’s Helping Hands food pantry, 204 N. Washington St., Bourbon, Indiana 46504.
