Blairsville, PA

On February 8th, 2024, Mark A. Fritz received his heavenly reward. Born September 2nd, 1959 to Mary and William “Jack” Fritz, Mark lived his whole life in Blairsville, and worked over 40 years for his own construction business. A labor of love and God given talent. A man of great faith, Mark loved the Lord with all his heart, and lived his life in kindness and generosity. If he knew of someone in need, he would give anything he could, even if he didn’t have much himself. A lover of the outdoors, Mark enjoyed hunting and fishing with his family and friends, making many precious memories through the years. Mark was a loving husband, father, brother and friend. He believed in hard work, but also good fun. He found joy in it all, and he leaves behind many who love him, and will miss him dearly. He is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Darla Fritz (Goodlin), of Blairsville; his adoring daughters, Ashley (Brad) Siverd and Alicia (Zach) Dixon and grandson, Jameson Dixon, who was a light in his world. His siblings: Debi (Bobby) Brown, Jack (Kate) Fritz, Rick (Rose) Fritz, Troy (Sarah) Fritz and Chad (Jennifer) Fritz; bonus brother, Todd Goodlin, special nephew and coworker, Jeff Straw, and many other dear nieces and nephews and in-laws. He was proceeded in death by his parents; his sister, Vicky Fritz, and his in-laws, Arky and Moodie Goodlin. Mark fought a valiant battle against cancer, and ultimately he won. He leaves behind a legacy that many don’t, even if they have a hundred years. He supported many ministries and charity organizations, but one that was special to his heart was Heart Beat High School, which is an orphanage and educational facility in Kenya. He felt moved to support the teachers there as they are unpaid, and he wanted bright futures for all of the children. A photo of Mark hangs on the wall at Heart Beat, and the children pray for him daily. They mourn with us, and the difference he made there will never be forgotten.

We mark the passing of Alan David Brill, husband of Deborah Dee Brill, son of Charles and Marie Brill. He was born in McKeesport and spent his youth in Blairsville. Alan worked in the jewelry industry most of his life, save for a time as a young man when he worked on the railroads. He graduated in 1973 from the University of Pittsburgh, a city in which he loved dearly. He was an entrepreneur who took pride in being able to eventually open his own businesses. While Alan was widely regarded as a quiet man, he had many passions and lesser-known facts such as his black belt in American Taekwondo which lent to his love of Kung Fu movies. He was an avid marksman and taught all three of his son’s firearms safety and proficiency. Blending his love of the sport and his jewelry business, he would always say to "Invest in precious metals. Gold, Silver and Lead." Beyond these activities, Alan spent time working with the community driving the Ambulance for Shermans Dale Volunteer EMS as well as working with the Fire Police. Alan is survived by his wife, Deborah; his sons: Aaron (Zeze), Alex (Erin) and Adam Brill (Aubrey); his sister, Sue Willis; sister-in-law, Debra, McLaughlin, and nieces and nephews along with his grandchildren: Tyler, Dmitri and Logan Brill.
