Nicholas J. Dietz

Nicholas J. Dietz passed away on Sept. 25, 2021.

He was born in May of 1945 in Postville.

The world has been less bright since Nicholas J. Dietz left it behind. Gone, but certainly not forgotten, are all the stories he used to tell, the “inventions” he came up with, and the projects he was always working on.
