Breaking News: Bridgeport Teen Drug Busted With Half-Pound Of Heroin

Michael Fritchman, 63, Formerly Of Westport

WESTPORT, Conn. – Michael "Spike" James Fritchman of Donalds, S.C., and formerly of Westport, died Sept. 26 in Greenwood, S.C. He was 63.

Born Feb. 12, 1949, in Rochester, N.Y., he was a son of Marvin LeGrande and Elizabeth Louise Price Fritchman. He lived most of his life in Westport, where he worked in several local restaurants, including the now closed Glynn's on Post Road East.

Fritchman formerly owned and operated Pequot Liquors in Southport. He was also a drummer in the Westport band, The Remains, for a time. He retired to Donalds in 2010, where he enjoyed making new friends. He never met a stranger and was always there when a friend needed him, his family said.

Fritchman is survived by a sister, Susan (Anthony) Tietze, of North Kingstown, R.I.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday at Blyth Funeral Home in Greenwood. The family will receive friends Wednesday immediately after the service.
