James F Diedel
June 09 1941 - May 22 2016 - Age 74

James F. Diedel of National Park, NJ was reunited with Ella in Heaven on May 22, 2016.

James was a strong, independent and generous father figure to his family. He was a hardworking man who dedicated over 25 years to the Philadelphia Airport and later 20 years to John’s Mobil in Woodbury. He enjoyed the quiet of being home, mixed with the commotion of family surrounding him and keeping an open door for anyone who needed a safe place. He also loved to collect coins, rare monies, and the yearly holiday Hess trucks, was meticulous in caring for his cars, and cheered on the Flyers, Phillies and Eagles. A great man, who cared for others with a quiet grace, will be greatly missed by many hearts.

Beloved husband to the late Ella E. (née Mort); Devoted father of Kimberly Ferraro (the late Cort), Darlene Duffy, James Diedel (Kathy), Cheryl Chappell, Kristianne Diedel, and the late Debra Bianca; Cherished grandfather of John, Lauren, Zac, Stevie, Lexi, Ryan, Serena, Taylor, Gianna, and Van; Treasured great grandfather of Ra’elle; Adored son of the late Earl and Lillian; Dear brother to Dennis Reilly (Diane) and the late Chip Diedel (the late Peggy); Loved uncle to many.
