Chase Brendan Fritz died unexpectedly on Sunday, March 28, 2021 in Lexington.
Chase was born in Maysville and grew up in Nicholasville. He played football at East Jessamine High School and went on to play football at Western Kentucky University and was a member of the 2002 National Championship team led by Coach Jack Harbaugh.
Chase was such a happy person and loved life. He had the biggest heart and was always ready to help anyone if they needed it. He was truly still a kid at heart—especially when it came to a bonfire and fireworks—nothing made him happier than a big fire and fireworks! His favorite holiday was the 4th of July!
Chase was a member of Pax Christi Catholic Church in Lexington.
He is survived by his parents, Mark and Donna Fritz; his brother, Kyle; his maternal grandmother, Rosemary Leo; his uncles, Leonard (Julie) Leo and David (Lana) Fritz along with several cousins. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Sebastian Leo and his paternal grandparents, Roy and Clarine Fritz.
Mass of Christian burial will be held at Noon on Monday, April 5, 2021 at St. Patrick’s Church, Maysville. Visitation will be from 10:00 a.m. until noon at the church. Burial will follow at St. Patrick’s Cemetery.
