ARIZONA CITY — Charles Fredrick Katz, 65, of Arizona City died at home on Palm Sunday, April 10, 2022.
Mr. Katz was born on June 24, 1956, in San Diego and raised there. As a young child he sang in classrooms and a local barbershop for candy and bubble gum. He had a versatile, dynamic and powerful singing voice and enjoyed performing on stage in both ballet and theater and spent about a decade entertaining people as a classical pianist virtuoso. He also played in many San Diego retirement homes and communities.
He enjoyed modifying his two Mazda Miatas into beautiful works of art as well as doing many other artistic endeavors and creations. He was a man of many talents and abilities and a faithful God-fearing man of much wisdom. He made friends easily and made people laugh. He enjoyed a good debate on almost any subject and enjoyed his two dogs.
Although he battled Parkinson's disease for eight years and lived through the COVID pandemic, he died of other complications.
Survivors include his wife of 17 years, Karen; a son, Daniel Katz; his father, Charles Katz; and three sisters, Cindy Euse, Dani Sivesind and Valerie Norman. He was preceded in death by his mother, Velma Sanchez.
