Martin William Diederich, 73, left this world for a better place on the afternoon of Nov. 15, at 3:07 p.m., at the Jackson-Madison County General Hospital. He went peacefully in the presence of his loving wife, Doreen Diederich; his children Lara Kulak, Michael Diederich, Richard Nickerson and Laurie Sweet; and granddaughter Tiffany Ball. He is further survived by son-in-law Josh Kulak, daughter-in-law Michelle Nickerson, son-in-law Steve Sweet, grandchildren Trystan Kulak, Riley Kulak, Mitchell Nickerson, Connery Nickerson, Frankie Ball and countless other friends and family members.
He was an Air Force veteran, a dedicated civil servant and a tireless volunteer. He will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
