John Dietiker Obituary
John Dietiker, 78

Mr. John C. Dietiker, age 78, passed away Sunday, March 15, 2015. He was born in Chicago, Illinois, November 7, 1936, to John James and Edna Mae (Hatherley) Dietiker. During his youth he lived in a remote part of Ontario, Canada, where he helped his parents build Sak Bay Lodge Resort. There he enjoyed the activities of hunting and fishing and often acted as a guide for guests of the resort. John was a man who enjoyed his "toys," especially fast cars of which he owned several (because he loved to trade them). His preference was for Corvettes; a choice which provided the family with interesting travelling. John was the owner/operator of Dietiker Plumbing and Heating in Pontiac, Illinois. He was an endowed member of the NRA and an avid gun owner. Eighteen years ago he retired to Oakland, Arkansas with his wife, Janice, with whom he enjoyed 58 years of marriage. In Pontiac, he was a member of St. Mary's and, while living locally, a member of St. Williams in Gainesville, Missouri.

John is survived by his beloved family: his wife, Janice, of Oakland, Arkansas, his daughter, Jeanne Weber, of Pontiac, Illinois, his sons, John (Bernie) of Fairbault, Minnesota, Jamie (Debbie) of Pontiac, Illinois and Chris of Bloomington, Illinois. He is also survived by ten grandchildren, Stacy, Carrie, Renee, Nathan, Joel, and Dara Weber and Heather, John Joshua, Chelsea, and Josalynn Dietiker. Ten great-grandchildren also survive him: Gage, Nola, Aaron, Mason, Alex, Adam, John Tyler, Joshua, Lyric and Lugosi. One sister, Mary (Bill) Groves of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada and a number of nieces and nephews also survive John.

He was preceded in death by his parents and Houdini, a beloved pet.

The family plans for a celebration of life at a later date.
