Hey Kenny and Sue. Although I was a member of Monaca #1 for only 5 years in the early 80"s, my wife Cindy and I have been exchanging Christmas cards with Diek and Betty for nearly the past thirty years....really since we relocated to New Haven in 1985 and then to the Cleveland/Akron area in 1988. We never failed to receive one, even after your mom passed away, until this past Christmas. Diek was always one of our connections to Monaca and wonderful memories of my time as a Fireman and Councilman. Carol was also one of Cindy's teacher's at New Brighton back in the late 70's. We were so very sorry to learn of your father's passing and I hope the love and respect shared by family and friends will bring you and your families some peace and comfort during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Diek was and will always be in my book, "one of the good guys"Best wishes,John & Cindy Petures
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

George will be remembered as a kind and generous man. I remember a day at one of the Monaca parades when he and my Dad stood there and swapped stories about the fire department. It was fun listening to them talk about the old time in the departments. My Dad was in New Brighton Dept. and they talked about the comraderi in the Departments. My sympathy to all of you. Our prayers are with you.

I grew up on Atlantic Ave Monaca. My grandmother was Anna Koehler and I spent everyday at Koehle''s Machine Shop right up the alley from Dietrich's Plumbing. as a boy of 15 when George Jr returned from the War I was in awe of him and others who saw action in WW II. My cousins Howdy and Jimmy Koehler the Johnson's , The Greaser 's and the Dietrich's who were all on the fire Dept were men I admired and will always remember proud of this man as he was someone special ......Art French MHS 1949, USN Korean Vet.., Penn State 1957.....
