In 2011, Dieter graduated from Everest College with two Associates degrees, one in Business Administration and the other in Accounting.
Dieter enjoyed computer gaming and role play gaming. He also enjoyed anime and kung fu movies. Dieter worked in many different jobs but the common thread was all his supervisors spoke of what an amazing worker he was and how friendly he was to customers.
Dieter’s best trait was his tender heart. He was always willing to help anyone in need and would have given you the shirt off his back.
