Stafford County Mourns Former Supervisor Lindbergh Fritter


Stafford County mourns the passing of former Supervisor Lindbergh A. Fritter. Fritter represented the Griffis-Widewater District on the Board of Supervisors from 1972 to 1979, 1984 to 1984, and 1992 to 1999. His peers elected him as Vice Chairman from 1976 through 1979. A lifelong resident of Stafford County, Fritter was known for his kindness and integrity. He was a strong supporter of Stafford’s parks and recreation program and business in the county.

“On behalf of the Board and the citizens of Stafford County, I extend our deepest condolences to the family of Lindbergh Fritter,” said Chairman of the Board of Supervisors Crystal Vanuch, Rock Hill District. “Mr. Fritter lived his life to make a difference in Stafford County, knowing his decisions on the Board directly affected his family, friends and neighbors.”

Stafford County honored Lindbergh Fritter in 2014 with a special ceremony to mark the naming of a baseball field for him at Patawomeck Park. A plaque was erected commemorating Fritter’s dedication to developing Stafford’s parks and recreation system.

“It is evident that Lindbergh Fritter deeply cared about both the Griffis-Widewater District as well as the county,” said Supervisor Tinesha Allen, Griffis-Widewater District. “Those of us walking in his shoes on the Board takes great inspiration from his example of service.”
