Fritz Hodel

1921-2017

 

Fritz was an inspiration to most of us, especially myself. He was one of the main reasons why I joined the club. His personality was uplifting and to be desired.

His joy of life was contagious to all of us with his jokes and stories. Not to be forgotten, his 50 years of service and dedication to our club including his family’s help to grow our society to its current status.

I believe this club has meant the world to him due to his passion of our sport and keeping the Swiss tradition alive. We must recognize his hard work of growing the 300m range and his helpfulness to all of our shooters.

His passion of shooting was evident in his unwillingness to give up the sport even when his eyes and fingers would not cooperate anymore at 95 years of age. He was our oldest member and a pillar in our community.

Fritz, Thank You. You will be missed.
