     Fredrick W. Goetz was a dedicated Grafton police officer for more than 40 years, attaining the rank of lieutenant.
    He considered it an honor to serve in Grafton with a team of dedicated officers and professionals, many of whom became lifelong friends, his family said.
    From directing traffic to solving crimes, Mr. Goetz enjoyed interacting in the community and representing the badge with honor. He loved every minute of it, his family said.
    Mr. Goetz, 77, died Tuesday, Oct. 17, at his home in Grafton.
     He was born in Milwaukee on Sept. 22, 1940, to William and Bernice Goetz.  
    After earning a master of business administration degree and retiring from the police force, he taught management and leadership courses at several universities and colleges, including Concordia University Wisconsin in Mequon and Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee.
    Recently, Mr. Goetz found camaraderie as a driver with NAPA Auto Parts, where he made many friends.
    Mr. Goetz is survived by his wife Mary; son Jeff (Wendy); daughters Jacquie (Glenn) Weihert and Katie (Craig) Kennison; and grandchildren Matthew (Sarah) Wojtkowski, Nick Goetz, Craig, Mary, and Claire Kennison.
    He is further survived by brothers Gary (Dana) and Gene (Jackie) and sisters-in-law Jeanne Heidel and Peachy (Ted) Haischer.
    He was preceded in death by his parents; mother and father-in-law Harry and Jean Sceizor; and brother-in law Wayne Heidel.
      A funeral was held Monday, Oct. 23, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Grafton.
    He was buried at Immanuel Cemetery in Jackson.  
    Memorials to a charity of choice are suggested.  
    Mueller Funeral Home, Cedarburg, handled the arrangements.
