Dear friends,


On May 4th, 2021, on the festival day of Beltane, Harold Fritz Jung died after a brief illness. His wife, soulmate and best friend Wren was with him. Fritz was a loving husband, devoted son, and wonderful brother, as well as a beloved friend to many. He was a gifted musician and songwriter, a wizard with computers, a talented recording engineer, a lover of cats, a devotee of baked goods, and a passionate cyclist.

Fritz co-founded The Witches’ Voice with his wife Wren in 1997, creating an innovative website for the non-profit organization that provided networking, education, and assistance to the international pagan community, receiving accolades from the technology community for his stellar design work. Fritz chose the name “Witchvox” and its legacy lives on in the many friendships and connections made, thousands of articles published, stories and life passages shared, the art and music discovered, and the memories of our community’s growth and evolution stretching over more than two decades of its existence.

Fritz and Wren had recently moved from Florida (where Fritz worked for Dean Guitars) back to New England, and Fritz had often mentioned missing the smell of the forest over the last twenty years. Fritz loved the beauty of nature, even the dramatic thunderstorms of western Florida, and was excited about experiencing all four seasons again. Fritz believed in generosity, in optimism, in kindness, in hugs, and in being thankful for everything. He worked tirelessly, laughed loudly, and lived his life with boundless energy, humor and love. May his memory be a bright light to all who knew and loved him.

  1. I JUST got the news about Fritz. I am so sorry, Wren. You two were….and ARE very good together. He will live on in you. His spirit is still with you.

    I am a member on WitchVox. I haven’t been on in a while.

    There was one CD of his I had back in the 90’s. I cannot remember the name of it, but it got lost during a move. I LOVED that CD.

    He was a good man and always willing to help other’s.

    Again, I am very sorry.

    Always,

  2. The Witches Voice was an absolutely incredible resource in the early days of the World Wide Web, and remained so until the social media era was well underway. I published some articles on the site and every interaction with Fritz was incredibly positive. I’d dare say he and Wren have contributed as much to the Pagan community as authors like Gardner, Buckland, and Starhawk. Blessings to all who knew him.

  3. I am so sorry to hear this news. I was a follower and on Witchvox almost from it inception. I had been saddened when it closed. It was such a wonderful thing that Fritz and Wren did for the Pagan community. It was because of Witcvox that I made so many connections when I moved down south.

    May he travel well now. Hail to the Traveler.

    So Mote it Be!
    Hugs and Blessings
