Obituary for Thomas L Dietrich Sr.

Thomas L  Dietrich Sr.
Family was a number one priority for Tom. Tom loved and appreciated his amazing wife, Jackie, and they just celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary. He never took for granted the tremendous devotion and care she provided him, especially through his health problems over the years. Tom helped raise their three children, Melissa, Jennifer, and Tom, Jr.— providing a solid home, challenging them to be their best, and being there for them when they needed him. He also nurtured his grandchildren, Amanda, Katelyn, Elizabeth, and Dylan, as well as great grandchildren, Sophia and Maya. His favorite times of the year were holiday gatherings where he saw his brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, with his wife and children and grandchildren.

Finding great companionship in his seven brothers and two sisters, he loved playing cards with them, fishing, shooting or deer hunting. He also loved the Wenstrup family he married into, treating his in-laws as his own.

Tom was a craftsman, walking in the footsteps of his father, as a builder and carpenter. His eye for detail yielded beautiful results, as witnessed in the many buildings across southern Ohio, including his own home.

Tom was known for his determination and toughness. He got things done and rarely complained about his own difficulties. Although he sometimes presented a gruff exterior, his loving and caring insides shone through. And this continued to grow as he aged, as well as his gratitude for life— every day was a gift to him, seeing the positive in things and appreciating his time here. We all can learn from his example.

Relatives and friends are invited to the funeral mass, Friday, December 21, 1:30 PM, at St. Martin of Tours Church, Cheviot. No visitation. Private Burial at a later date. A Celebration of Life will follow immediately. Please, no flowers.
