Our Son and Brother Navy SEAL Danny P. Dietz Jr.

Our DJ was the oldest of three, son of Danny P. Dietz Jr. and Cynthia Dietz Marsh. From a young age DJ was very intelligent, inquisitive and loving but most of all determined. He was very protective of his siblings and parents. He was also very artistic. None of us never knew our son would grow up and become one of the best of the best and so patriotic that he would eventually lay down his life for our freedom. His teammates referred to him as the consummate SEAL. We also never realized our lives would be forever changed through his chosen profession. But after we got our final knock we went through hell trying to pick up the pieces of broken hearts. We eventually learned to carry on in our new norm of life. Through years of tears we used our horrific pain to carry on and to vow to keep his memory alive. We also realized there were so many walking in our shoes and we had to be there to help our new Gold Star Families. DJ is survived by his parents a sister TIffany Bitz, husband Alex and nephews Caden and Carter. A brother Eric Dietz, wife June and niece Morgan and nephew Danny 3rd. Widow Patsy and dogs Nox and Charlie Murphy. He is also survived by Marcus Luttrell the Lone Survivor who lived to tell the story of the courageous warriors who perished that day. Along with many other teammates who continued the fight and still continue to fight for our freedoms. Our DJ has left a legacy in this world so many read his story in the book The Lone Survivor and later have seen the movie. Or have read his book we wrote of his life before becoming a SEAL, Danny the Virtues Within. our family is so proud that he will forever be remembered and his story will be a part of history. Our family would like to thank you for possibly using what we have wrote to continue his legacy but most of all to never forget our son and brother Danny Phillip DIetz Jr.
