Joe was born in Hazelton, PA, October 15, 1953 to Joseph & Lois Miller Fritz.  He grew up in Hometown, PA and Bridgeport, CT.  He graduated from Harding High School and went on to earn his degree in Construction Engineering from Wentworth Institute in Boston, MA and Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ.  He moved to the Atlanta Metro area in 1992 and it has been his home for the last 28 years.

At the time of his death, Joe was employed by the Macallan Group.  His talent for the building of custom homes was second to none.  He had a true gift for quality, professionalism and integrity that he never spoke of.  When you saw his finished work it was nothing more than amazing.  He will be truly missed by all that worked with him.

 Joe also had another passion and that was working as a communication sideline assistant with the Atlanta Falcons.  On game day, Lloyd and Joe spent long days at the Georgia Dome/Mercedes Benz Stadium setting up the communications for players and coaches.  He made many lasting friendships and will be missed by his Falcon Family.  Rise Up and play the next game for Joe.
