Comments: David Dietrich loved his job.
He started working with his father 42 years ago, hanging off of the back of a garbage truck and tossing the cans inside.
“The biggest part of his life was his work,” his brother Bob Dietrich said. “He worried about retirement.”
Described as a well-liked and simple man by his brother, David started working for the family business when he was 21. He loaded garbage cans into a truck for more than 30 years. Later, after hurting his back, he worked at the transfer station on a road named after his family.
We will not forget you, David Dietrich.
Together, let’s honor the memory of the men and women who have served by our side. Whether on the garbage trucks, delivering portable sanitation units, or working in the offices and repair shops, the employees of our industry serve important roles and are very special people. As we remember this fallen hero of the waste industry, we join with their family and co-workers to honor their service.
