Obituary for Joseph Dieter

Joseph Dieter
Joseph Bernard Dieter, age 79, of Brainerd, passed away on Thursday, February 1, 2018, at Bethany – Good Samaritan Society. Joe was born in Brainerd to Frank & Rose (Herner) Dieter on October 21, 1938. Joe worked for The Brainerd State Hospital for 37 years.
Joe’s best moments were those spent traveling around the country with Peggy, playing cutthroat games of croquet and fast track with family and friends, and going back “one more time” at all-you-can-eat buffets. He loved riding his bicycle and working out at the YMCA, posting on Facebook, fixing things around the house, and driving new cars. We’ll all miss Joe’s one-of-a-kind sense of humor and practical jokes.
Left to cherish his memory are his son, Steven (Rosemary Shambaris) Dieter of Boulder, CO; daughter, Sherry (Mark) Kean of Fountain, MN; granddaughter, Anika Dieter-Shambaris; sister, Rosie (Joe) Laughton of Rochester; brother, John (Kris) Dieter of Merrifield; significant other, Peggy Hildebrandt of Brainerd.
Joe is preceded in death by his parents; brothers: Albert and Eddie; and ex-wife Rayla Dieter.
Per Joe’s request, there will be no services.
