The Reitz Nation lost one of its most loyal members recently when Art Deig passed away last Wednesday, June 10.
Deig, 91, played football for Reitz as a tackle, earning all-state honors in 1940 and the 1941 Kiwanis Award. He was inducted into the Reitz Football Hall of Fame Class of 2008 and remained an avid fan throughout his life.
Deig was a World War II Air Force veteran and was one of the founders of Deig Brothers. He was a staple of the West Side and Reitz Football and will truly be missed by his family and friends.
