Vincent Dieter

Vincent N. Dieter, 85, of Walnutport, passed away Saturday, July 4, 2020 at St. Luke’s Hospital, Bethlehem.   He was the husband of Judith A. (Reitz) Dieter. They were married May 28, 1977.   Born in Cherryville on July 21, 1934, he was the son of the late C. Leon and Gladys (Oplinger) Dieter.   A talented high school baseball player, he still holds the record for highest batting average for Northampton Area High School at .591.   Vince was a graduate of Muhlenberg College with a degree in Business.   He served his country honorably and proudly as a member of the US Army.  He was President/Owner of Dieter’s Foundry in Cherryville and Dieter’s Snowmobile Shop in Berlinsville.  His last business venture was Lehigh Machine, Inc., which he and Judy operated together.  Vince was a trustee for the former Palmerton Hospital, and Board Director for the former First Lehigh Bank, Walnutport, and enjoyed coaching his son’s Lehigh Township Little League teams.   He was a long time Dodgers fan, avid snowmobiler and his favorite mode of transportation was his Kubota and John Deere tractors.   Vince’s greatest passion was taking care of his property.  He was a “Hero” to many.

Dieter and wife Jane of Easton, MD; numerous nieces & nephews and his wife’s close knit family who greatly enriched his life.   Vince was pre-deceased by a brother, Carl Dieter, and sister Jean wife of Lloyd Liggit.

Uncle Vince was an amazing and generous man. My life is filled with many memories of him. He lived life to the fullest, and he shared his love for outdoor activities with the entire family. Some of my favorites include boating with him and learning to waterski. We enjoyed taking out his wave runners, 4-wheelers and snowmobiles over the years. I’ll never forget bringing home his deer and holding one like a baby in the car ride. His love for animals and nature was inspiring, as was his patience. I am grateful not only for the wonderful memories Uncle Vince and Aunt Judy created for me, but also the ones they’ve created for the next generation. My girls thoroughly enjoy our extended family time, and my family has been extremely blessed by Vince. You’ll forever be in our thoughts and prayers. We love you!

We are so sorry for your loss. Vince was a gentle man with a heart of gold. We visited Judy and Vince at their home once and with the passion he had for his property he created a place full of beauty, peace and serenity. From knowing Judy and Vince, hearing stories from our granddaughters and talking to our daughter-in-law and her mom, their family more than loved going to their home. Vince created a wonderland for them. Vince will be missed for sure.Del and Kim McChalicher
