Coach Paul F. Dietzel

September 5, 1924 - September 24, 2013

Our family has lost a humble leader and loving dad and granddad; the world of athletics has lost a visionary and gridiron legend. Those of us who have been blessed to live along side, work or play for Coach have lost a caring friend, an uplifting mentor and a man of God. Coach died peacefully and is at his heavenly home. He leaves behind his dear wife Anne, daughter Kathie DuTremble, son Steve, daughter-in-law Judy Dietzel, grandsons David DuTremble and Paul Dietzel II, and countless athletes through the decades that Coach considered his own.

September 25 would have been Coach and Anne's 69th wedding anniversary.

Coach asked that in place of flowers or food that gifts be made to the local Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter in Baton Rouge. The contact for FCA is Andy Stroup.
