Dylan John Diederich, age 31 of Columbia Heights, Minnesota, passed away January 25, 2023.
He was born on September 29, 1991 in Grand Rapids, Minnesota to Anton “Tony” Diederich and Christine “Chris” (Brandt) Diederich.
He attended high school in Otsego/Elk River and obtained his GED in 2010. He worked at Sport Tech and Metro Mold for several years, and as the years passed, he learned many trade skills that allowed him to work on larger scale projects. He worked with his Dad building homes in North Dakota and helped in the machine shop. He was currently enrolled at Anoka Tech to further his trade skills to become a machinist.
Dylan was known for his generous heart. He had a very loving and warm personality, so it was easy for him to make friends. He got along with anyone. He was genuine, poetic, and artistic. Dylan was exceptionally kind and worked well with children; he was a caring father and uncle. His family affectionately called him “Dyl Pickle”.
When he wasn’t working or attending his classes, you could find him enjoying the outdoors with a fishing pole in his hand. He especially liked being on the lake ice fishing. He enjoyed playing board and video games; his competitive side would come out because he didn’t like to lose! He will be missed by so many people.
He is preceded in death by his great-grandparents.
Dylan is survived by his son, Johnathan Coalee Diederich; mother, Christine Diederich; father, Anton (Tracy) Diederich; brother, Nathan (Haily) Diederich; step-siblings, Jamie (Boden) Silberg and Justin (Ali Smith) Sundt; nephew, Elijah; grandparents, Jerald and Rosemary Brandt and Daniel and Mary Lou Diederich; many aunts, uncles, cousins, and other relatives and friends.
