Dieter leaves behind to cherish his memory, his mother Kati (Trace) Marlow and his father Jeff Chauncey. He also leaves his two beloved children, daughter Hailey and son, James and their mother, Jessie Sorensen.  Dieter is survived by his siblings, Caitlin (Tyrell), Shandi  (Matt)and Wyatt as well as his nephews., Lukas and Liam.  He is also survived by his beloved cousins; Erica, Taylor, Anika, Lauren and Brennan as well as his grandparents and many aunts and uncles.
