George Dietrich, 86, formerly of Northfield NJ died January 3 after a lengthy illness.

George was born in Baltimore to Muriel (nee Farrington) and A. Austin Dietrich. He attended University of Baltimore where he was a baseball standout. He was recruited to the minor leagues where he played with Al Kaline. A knee injury sidelined that career. He then joined the US Army, became a Military Police Officer who guarded the dignitaries at Arlington National Cemetery. His proudest moment there was when General Eisenhower greeted him, “Looking good soldier.” After his honorable discharge, George headed to South Jersey where he found his calling at the Flanders Hotel in Ocean City NJ. He managed and was Vice-President of the Flanders Hotel with pride and distinction for 29 years.

Of many the things George was proud of, his singing was what he really loved, other than golf. He was always singing. His time in the Barbershop club was a joy to him. He could also be found at the golf course. He played nearly every day after his retirement.

He is predeceased by his brother Austin, his mother and father. George is survived by his daughters Alane Dunn and Kelly Johnson. Also numerous nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the staff of the Serenity unit at Autumn Lakes, Visiting Angels, Addie, Louise and Denise, and Compassionate Care for taking such good care of our father.

My name is Steve Bassett Back in about 1979 I called on The Flanders Hotel to sell them a painting They directed me to George.
I had just started my art business and was getting paintings and frames from my family member in California Norm Taylor
At the time he was the world's largest importer of picture frames..
George really liked the framed samples I showed him and brought the woman that decorates to his office. They bought
at least 50 or 60 painting and they paid me right away! He never tried to get me down in price. Then he introduced me to
the Kirkmans-the owners of the Flanders Hotel. I really got a great start in the art business by dealing with George.
I ended up in the insurance business for 40 years I never got to play golf with George I'M sure when I get to Heaven someday
George will have a starting time for us!
