Rolland Frederick “Fritz” Zeck, age 76, of Greensboro, GA passed away, Tuesday, July 11, 2017 at his home with his loved ones.  Born in Sandusky, OH on November 27, 1940, he was the only child of the late Frederick Harry “Doc” Zeck and ​B​erma Glass Zeck.  Fritz graduated from Sandusky High School and furthered his education at ​Franklin College and Ohio University.

​W​hile working at Columbus and Southern Electric, he met and ​married Sandra Alice Adams of Coshocton, Ohio and on June 24, 2017 they celebrated 50 years of m​arriage with their children and grandchildren.

Fritz found his calling in the lighting industry starting his career at Abolite​ Lighting under the direction of George Siegrist. In order to further his career he moved his family to Americus, GA. to work for Metalux Lighting and Larry Comer, who entrusted him to start and move the division of Lumark Lighting to Dallas, TX.  After Metalux and Lumark were purchased by Cooper Lighting, Fritz became Vice President of Sales under Dan Thomson and Ralph Jackson and was promoted to President of Cooper Lighting in 1994 until he retired in 2002.

For fifty-one years he was a member of the Elks Club. He had a passion for golf, fishing, WWII history, food, travel and his grandchildren.

Fritz was a great leader, friend, husband and father, celebrating life to the fullest everyday.  He never worried about what might happen but instead focused on the present.  One of his favorite sayings was “Don’t worry about the mule going blind, just hitch up the wagon and pull on the line” 

Fritz is survived by his wife of fifty years, Sandra Zeck of Greensboro, GA; his daughter, Laura Zeck and her husband Jesse Doquilo of Seattle, WA; his son, Adam Zeck and his wife Katie of Charlotte, NC; and his three grandchildren, Grace Doquilo, Noah Zeck and Chloe Zeck; other relatives and many friends.

Even though Fritz will be greatly missed, he didn’t want to be mourned, just remembered as a person who loved life.  So at Fritz’s request, the family will hold a Celebration of Fritz’s Life later this year. The family requests that any memorials be made to the American Heart Association or the National Psoriasis Foundation.  Fritz will be cremated and arrangements will be taken care of by McCommons Funeral Home, 109 W. Broad St., Greensboro, GA  (706) 453-2626.  Visit us at www.mccommonsfuneralhome.com to sign the online guest register.
