I met Frank when he was hired in our offices at Special Olympics in Glen Ellyn. He was always ready with a smile and fun to be around. The world is a little colder without his warmth!

Dietz definitely had a smile and positive attitude that were contagious. Played basketball and softball with him.

At Our Lady of Victory our graduating class was tasked with coming up with a school nickname. Dietz was the one who had the best write-up for the challenge - OLV "Flames" and Sister Clarita recognized Dietz for his efforts.

Very sorry to hear about his passing. Condolences to the Dietrich family.

I met Frank in first grade and we remained friends throughout our lives. My kids called him 'Uncle Dietz.' I have a heart full of wonderful memories of him and the Dietrich family. He was, quite simply, one of the best friends I've ever had. I will love and miss him for the rest of my life.

I met Frank my senior year, we had both transferred in to Hersey High School and quickly became great friends. We had some wonderful adventures together including a Spring Break trip to Fla with memories I will never forget. Frank was quick witted and charming and fun was never far away when he was in the room.

I will miss my dear friend.

My deepest sympathies to the Dietrich family and wishes that Frank rest peacefully.

Frank...the star of our 8th grade Talent Show in 1975 at Our Lady of Victory School. He played his guitar while singing “Let it Be”. I will never forget it...he was amazing. I dated Frank for a very short time-danced to Stairway to Heaven in his basement at one of his ‘parties’. He always had a huge smile on his face, and he lit up a room with his laughter. God bless Frank...thanks for always being such a good friend. You will be missed!

Frank really enjoyed helping others. I remember several years ago when he called me to see if I wanted to take my daughters to Great America - and support a Special Olympic event he was doing some work for. We ended up going to this event - it was at night. What a wonderful job he did and my girls and I were able to ride Raging Bull about 10x in a row. After surviving that - it was so great to see Frank at work. Frank had a smile that lit up a room - and his memory will live on with so many of us.
May he rest in peace.
With Love, Mary (Morman) Pietro and the rest of the Pietro Family
