Frederick James “Fritz” Ammons, Sr.

November 16, 1950 ‒ May 30, 2020

Bellville, Ohio

​BELLVILLE: Frederick James “Fritz” Ammons Sr., age 69, passed away Saturday, May 30, 2020, in his home. He was blessed to be surrounded by his family.

He was born November 16, 1950, in Mansfield to parents Paul & Bernice (Jones) Ammons.

Fritz worked many different jobs in his lifetime. His first job, and maybe his most interesting, was working on a mink ranch.

He loved being on the hunt. Be it hunting for deer, fish, or arrowheads he enjoyed being outdoors. But his favorite type of hunting was for mushrooms, especially morels. He would even take trips to southern Ohio to join his brothers on mushroom hunts.

He is survived by his wife of 50 years Irene Ammons; children Bernice Ammons, Fritz Ammons Jr., Mike (Brooke) Ammons, Sunee Ammons, Jhayda Ammons; grandchildren Cassandra, Christina, Jessica, Elizabeth, London, Lilyan, Lincoln, Lakelyn, Langston;​ great-grandson Corbyn​,​​ siblings Marsha Yeager, Pat Mergel, Ralph Ammons, Steve Ammons; numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family.

In addition to his parents, Fritz was preceded in death by siblings Karen Shifflet, Paul Ammons Jr., Laura France, Kaye Ammons, Dick Ammons and Marilyn Daughtery.

Although no public service will be held in Fritz’s memory, his family hopes you will remember him in your own special way.
