David Alan Dietz was born in Caro, Michigan on October 26, 1969. He was the only child born from the union of Richard Dietz and Louann (Martin) Dietz. He attended Jefferson High School and graduated with the Class of 1987.
For fifteen years, David was employed as a Production Lineman for the Ford Motor Company. He took a medical retirement in 2005.
More than anything in this world, David was a proud and loving father to his daughter Meagan. He was also anxiously looking forward to becoming a grandfather. David had two special companions with whom he shared a bond, his beloved Labradors: Midnight and Mocha. He enjoyed entertaining and cooking, and his favorite guests were always his family.
David had a heart of gold. He was extremely loyal, generous and caring to his family and friends. He always had a helping hand to lend and would never say “no” to anyone.
David liked Cushman Scooters and Mopar Classic Cars. He enjoyed bowling, visiting estate sales, and feeding his thrift shop addiction. An avid outdoorsman, David enjoyed hunting, fishing, and traveling. He especially loved Northern Michigan.
