ARNOLD ADOLF DIETRICH
August 26, 2021, at the age of 81. He leaves to mourn his wife, Marilyn of 51 years; his
children, Patti, Linda (Ryan), Dwight (Kathy), Jim (Carmen), Teresa (Les); 16 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. He will be deeply missed by his surviving family and friends.
Born on August 4, 1940, to Adolf and Hedwig, he was one of ten siblings and grew up on the family farm in MacNutt,
Arnie was wise, thoughtful, kind, generous and a great listener, who enjoyed an engaging conversation and had a wonderful sense of humour.
Leaving the farm at the age of 18, he was a born salesman and entrepreneur who was never afraid to take a risk. He was a loving provider for his family. He was also a man of faith and an active member of the Lutheran Church. Family was #1. Some of Arnie's other passions in life included: playing guitar and the organ, singing, curling, card playing and spending time with his dear friends; the Meyers', Peppler's and Jones'.
One of his favourite places to be was the
family cottage at Lester Beach.
The family wishes to thank everyone for their kindness and support during this sad time. We would like to extend our sincere
appreciation to Dr. K. Iwaasa and the medical staff at the Selkirk General Hospital.
Cremation has taken place and a private Celebration of Life will occur at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, you may make a donation to a charity of your choice.
Condolences may be left on Arnold's
memorial page at www.interlakecremation.ca
Arrangements entrusted to
Interlake Cremation & Memorial Services.
