Dr.  Robert J. "Bob" Dietz Obituary
Dr. Robert "Bob" J. Dietz

Dr. Robert "Bob" J. Dietz, PhD was a musician, an educator, an activist, a writer - witty and wise, sarcastic and scholarly, erudite and irascible. A public figure in Kitsap County for over 50 years, Bob's legacy lives on in every student he taught, every politician he challenged, every battle he fought; in all the lectures, the music, the dinner parties, the scholarly endeavors, and the political rallies; down to every letter to the editor, every eloquent speech, every public performance, every authority he questioned. His passing on Tuesday, June 10, 2014 is a great loss for both his family and his community.

Bob is survived by his wife of more than 63 years, Maryellen J. Dietz; his son, Paul Dietz and his wife, Patti Dietz of Hillsboro, Oregon; his two grandchildren, Lindsey and Nathan Dietz of Portland, Oregon; his daughters Krista Dietz, of Virginia Beach, Virginia, and Gretchen Dietz and her wife, Ann Gilpin, of Seattle. He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, and one nephew.

A memorial service will be held at later date. An online memorial can be see at
