John M. Dietz, 58, February 1, 2020, longtime resident of the Southwest Side of Chicago, Garfield Ridge neighborhood, devoted father of Natalie, Malarie, Daniel and Jonilynn; beloved son of the Joan R. Dietz and the late John E. Dietz. John was the caring brother of Deborah and proud “papa” of 10.; and fun- loving uncle of one niece, one nephew, and one great nephew.

He was the furry “papa” of canine pup mamacita. The pup having lost a leg, was still very energetic and loved going for walks with John. Many wondered who was walking who! He was a friend to many and will be missed by all.

John loved baseball and was a huge Chicago Cubs fan. His favorite dish was pizza, quite possibly having enjoyed every pizza in the Chicago area! He was a music lover, especially The Rolling Stones. John had a few favorite snacks: Coca-Cola, strawberry Twizlers and nothing but Lays Potato Chips would he have in the house.

John and I were in my car backing out of Boons driveway. He flicked a booger on my dashboard. I remember yelling at him then we both broke out into a huge laugh that lasted at least 2 minutes. He always made me laugh and I’m proud to call him my Uncle and best friend ! I miss you.
