Rowan Fredrick Dietz
December 21, 2011
Rowan Dietz passed away Dec. 2, 2011 at the age of 79.
He was born in Trenton, N.J. on April 5, 1939 and settled down in Colorado, which he always considered his “true home.”
Rowan was a lover of art, music, books, ocean shores and anything to do with trains. He loved the environment and great outdoors, collecting rocks and climbing all but two of Colorado’s 52 “fourteeners.”
Rowan was a kind, gentle soul, always thankful and able to see the beauty in simple things. He attended service at Carbondale Community United Methodist Church, donating the church steeple several years ago. He enjoyed reminiscing with his longtime best friend from NH and will be truly missed.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to Carbondale Community Methodist Church, 385 S. Second St., Carbondale, CO 81623. There will be a graveside service on Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2011 at 2 p.m.at the Evergreen Cemetery on Eighth Street in Carbondale.
