Baby Child 08

Colton James Dietrich

December 19, 2018 ~ January 27, 2021 (age 2)


Colton James Dietrich went home to be with Jesus on Wednesday January 27, 2021.

He was the son of Jason and Morgan (Ober) Dietrich. He was a cousin to two beautiful little girls, a nephew, a grandson and a great grandson.

He was a seed planter, a walking miracle and he knew his life was in the hands of the maker of heaven. He was best known for his cheeky laugh and bashful grin. His favorite day was spent drinking frozen Nutella mochas, reading books about things with wheels, playing with his bestie Nora Jean, watching blippi and riding his pop pops tractor. He had a mild obsession with bananas, car rides, his whales, anything tractor, and buying toy monster trucks from target. He was brave and courageous. He walked to the beat of his own drum with fierce determination and surprised us at every turn.

While our hearts ache and long to have him physically here with us, we believe Gods timing is perfect in everything and we are confident his best days will be spent at the right hand of Jesus.

What an honor it was to get to walk with you through this life, sweet Colton James. We are so thankful for the hope of heaven.
