Frederick “Fritz” Streit age 70, formerly of Algonac, MI. passed away September 22, 2022, in his Ira Twp., MI. home, with his beloved wife Kathie, and faithful boxer, Miggy, by his side. Fritz was born September 22, 1952, in Owosso, MI. to the late Dr. John and Esther (nee Riemenschneider) Streit. He married Kathie M. Dickerson on October 5, 2001, in Waterford, MI.
Fritz graduated from Algonac High School in 1970, he received his bachelor’s degree from Oakland University, and his masters’ degree from Central Michigan University. He was employed by Health Management Systems of America (HMSA) in Detroit, MI.

Fritz is survived by his wife Kathie, children Britany (Dan) Levin and Nick (Sarah) DePorre, grandchildren Jackson DePorre, Lincoln DePorre, Hayden Levin, and Rory Levin, siblings Ed (Elyse) Streit, David (Jennifer) Streit, and Elizabeth Streit, stepmother Nancy Streit, stepbrothers Thomas E.
