Congratulations Roy!

Steven Fitzer, a skilled trial lawyer and fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, passed away on August 28, 2019, after one last deposition.  Steve leaves a hole in all of our lives, especially Fritz, the son he so loved, and Bertha, his wife of 46 years.  Bertha and Fritz ask that you drink a toast to him and that you give your own loved ones an extra special hug.  In lieu of flowers, Bertha and Fritz ask that you help send him off with a second yellow jersey by donating in his memory to assist Mary Bridge in its efforts to end child abuse.  His memorial page is at

A final tribute to Steve was held on October 6, 2019, from 2:00 to 5:00 at Chambers Bay Event Center, 6320 Grandview Drive West, University Place.
