I would like to express my sincere condolences on the recent passing of your father. I send my thoughts and prayers to you and your family at this difficult time. Although I didn't know your dad that well, on the half dozen or so occasions that I spent time in his company over the years, I did come to realize his great kindness and compassion towards those less fortunate than him. And I do know that he was very highly respected throughout the community, and his good works changed the lives of many. You were truly fortunate to have such a man as a model in your life. Please pass my deepest sympathies on to your mother, and brothers, and to all of your father's grandchildren. Very sincerely, Bob Griffin

My dearest condolences to the entire Dietz family and especially Lois. Nolan taught me so much in just a few year years. His reputation of knowlegedge could make the best Harvard Engineer humble himself. On the next day, he really has me going when he discuised his voice as fictious irate caller who wanted their furnace fixed. It was a blessing to know him. He broght normalcy to chaos and chaos to normalcy. I will always smile when I think of Nolan and hope you will to! God Bless! Sincerely, Mike Gambill

This is a very sad day getting the news that Nolan has passed away. I worked for Weil-McLain back in the late 70s as a representative in Maine & New Hampshire. Nolan was a just a terrific person and extremely bright. He had a "dry" sense of humor and loved to play tricks on us. Whenever I had an engineering design issue or service problem, Nolan was more than willing to take the time to see the problem through until it was taken care of. He was very patient in that manner. Nolan Dietz was an Icon in our industry and will be greatly missed by Weil-McLain distributor personnel all over this country. God Bless the Dietz family at this very difficult time. May God give you peace and comfort. Bob Leavitt Webber Supply, Inc. 32 Thatcher St. Bangor, Maine 04401

I am so sorry to hear about Nolan passing. I will pray for him. After knowing him for many many years in the hydronics business I can tell you that he will never be equaled. He was a great man and a great teacher. I will remember him for a 100 lifetimes! I will mess him deeply.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

John: I was sorry to read about the loss of your dad. Please let your brothers and mom know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I can remember the year your dad was our basketball coach when we were probably in 3 or 4th grade. Seems like it was just yesterday. I know you had a great relationship with him and again am sorry for your loss. Peace and god bless - Marty Brooks

I can never forget when he came and got John Jr and I when John's Jr car broke down on our lunch hour. We had a great laugh at a funny but stressful situtation (we were only a couple of hours late to get back) . I always appreciated him and John's mom and enjoyed my visits with them in Oakbrook at thier home. He treated me as a childhood friend of his son John Jr, even when I first met him. John your family was very lucky to have a father, husband and friend like him. I as many will miss him. Love Pablo, Barb, Alex, Ami, Tomica
