GNOSO's goal is to get Seniors off the couch, out of the doctors offices, and into a Healthy Lifestyle, whether for the exercise, or for the Social values of being around other Seniors. We are an all-volunteer staff (except for the Program Director), dedicated to presenting the best that Louisiana has to offer in Senior Olympics.

In Memoriam - Farewell to a Man of Quiet Dignity

We are Sad to report the passing of Fred Eitmann, of one of GNOSO's Most Stalwart.  Truly a "hail fellow well met," he was, in fact, the epitome of that expression. Fred particiated in every GNOSO Sport, Coordinated many, officiated in some, an was an ever-present cheering squad for all.  A Volunteer always ready to help, he was THE IDEAL of a Senior Olympian.

Fred
Fred Eitmann


Fred will be sorely missed by all. Beloved husband of Dottie, Father of Frederick Eitmann III (Patty Stanchek), John Eitmann (Maria), and Tammy Eitmann Yrle (Allen). 
P roud and doting grandfather of Noah and Emma Eitmann; Jonathan, Dorothy, and Therese Eitmann; and Brandon, Allison, and Jennifer Yrle. Brother of Mary Ann Rousselle (Jerry). Son of the late Anna and Frederick S. Eitmann Sr. A native New Orleanian, long time resident of Metairie, and parishioner of St. Edward the Confessor for over 50 years. He was a graduate of Warren Easton High School and proudly served in the U.S. Air Force reserves in the 159th Tactical Fighter Group. Fred retired from Western Electric (AT&T) after 30+ years of dedicated service and then went to work for his dear friends, Jerry and Janet Wheat, at Nutrition Fair Health Food Store. Fred was a founding member and past president of the North Bridgedale Civic Association, member and past president of the Commercial Athletic Association, and former Scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop 496. Under his direction, his sons are Eagle Scouts. He was an active member of both the Greater New Orleans and Kenner Umpire Associations. Fred was actively involved in the Greater New Orleans Senior Olympics and was named Sportsman of theYear in 2012 by his peers. He also cherished his time spent with The Darling Dads Coffee Club, The Cleary Golden Agers, and The St. Edward the Confessor Hilltoppers. Fred's family would like to invite his relatives and friends to attend the Mass of Christian Burial from LEITZ-EAGAN, 4747 Veterans Memorial Boulevard, Metairie, on Monday afternoon, December 15, 2014 at 1:00. Visitation will begin at 10:00 in the morning. Entombment will follow in Greenwood Cemetery, New Orleans.  An online guestbook is available at www.leitzeaganfuneralhome.com*.

Even as we are truly saddened here, we know that Heaven must be rejoicing to welcome home "one of their own."

His life was a sermon.

Go with God, Fred; you are ever in our prayers.
