Dr. A. Eugene Fritsche passed away on July 7, 2013. Gene joined the CSU Northridge’s Department of Geological Sciences in Fall 1964, after receiving his Ph.D. from UCLA. He twice served as Department Chair, retired in Spring 2000 and was immediately granted emeritus status. Gene was a long time supporter and past President of the Pacific Section SEPM and held the title as Senior Advisor for Life. Gene was an native of Los Angeles and grew up with love of the hills and complex geology that surrounded him. Although he traveled to every continent on Earth, always fascinated with the rocks and geology that he saw, the geology of southern California remained his lifelong passion. Gene was a caring teacher who made his students strive for the best, a strong mentor and role model for his research students, a leader in shaping the path of the department for decades, and a legend in the world of southern California geology. Equally important in his life were his family and the incredible adventures they shared for more than 50 years. His service to his fellow men and woman through Habitat for Humanity and other aid agencies improved the lives of many, and his kindness and humor touched their lives forever leaving happy memories. His loving and intrepid wife, Sue, said that Gene so enjoyed teaching geology at CSUN; and even though his life was a little shorter then we would have liked, he had a very happy and adventurous life with all his world travels and his many, many service projects. You can send memories of Gene to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will pass them on to Sue.
