Mrs. Dietrich and Butch, I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Dietrich's passing. Such a great neighbor while growing up next door to. I have fond memories and can recall conversations about sports that ranged from Clearview Football to his beloved Phillies and Eagles. Such a wonderful man and he will truly be missed. Andy Creelman
