Tara and I have been asked to sing this morning at the memorial service for Fred "Fritz" Lorber who passed away on Tuesday. His obituary and an edited video of him from last year talking about his WW II experience are at that link.
He touched all that knew him. My Simpson students had the pleasure of hearing the story of how his family left Vienna to come to the US as World War II was starting.
Tara and I had just been to his 91st birthday celebration dinner a few weeks ago where he was sharp as a tack. He always wanted me to sing some operetta from Vienna, so that is what we will be doing this morning to open the service.
RIP Fritz Lorber...
