JOHN E. (JOHNNIE) DYCK

On Thursday, November 5, 2020, John E. Dyck, aged 88, of Winnipeg, passed away at St. Boniface Hospital. He was born on January 4, 1932, to Jacob F. and Katherina Dyck, in McMahon, Saskatchewan.
He was predeceased by his parents; his wife, Florence in 1967, and his second wife, Mary, earlier this year; his children, Janie and Loren; and his siblings, Jake, Mary Loeppky, Tina Loeppky and Leonard; sister-in-law, Helen, and brothers-in-law, Henry Loeppky and Ed Loeppky.
He is survived by his children: Phyllis (Wayne), [Jonathan (Sheri), Jeffrey (Rachael), Joelle (Derek), Joshua (Janis), Janna]; Wes (Marcie), [Heidi (Tony), Krista (Roger), Matthew (Regan), Andrea (Anthony)]; (Felicia and Andrzej), [Brynlee-Ann (Mike), Zem, Alissa (Ross)]; Tim (Vicki), [Avery, Graeme (Melissa), Jamieson (Liz)]; Rod (Carla) [Ryan, Jessie]; Rachel (Brian), [Eric (Andrea), Rebecca (Nathan), Tyler (Emma)]; Janelle (John), [Anthony, Joanna, Dillon]; and Shauna (Derek), [Allison (Ben), Emily, David, Joshua]; as well as 22 great-grandchildren.
He also leaves to mourn siblings, Henry (Josephine), Norma (Walter) and (Luella (John)); as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
John had limited opportunities for formal education and he completed his grade eight at the local school. After this he started working to help out the family. In 1940, his family moved to Stuartburn, Manitoba. Here he met and married Florence Enns, and they started their family of eight children. They moved to Dominion City, where he managed a Macleods store, and then to Morris, where he also worked at the Macleods store.
John and Mary settled in Winnipeg in 1968, where they raised the children and added one more. His careers were varied, and included farmer, electrician, home-builder, and supervisor in a woodworking shop for handicapped workers, but he will be especially remembered for his exceptional carpentry skills.
After retirement, he continued to pursue his many hobbies, including golfing and coffee times with family or friends. He was always proud of his family, who were able to help him through his struggle with the onset of dementia in the last few years.
In accordance with his wishes, cremation has taken place. Due to the current COVID health crisis, it is the family's intention to plan a public celebration of his life at a later date.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Dear cousins and your families, When I think of your dad, I think of his carpentry skills — he built a grandfather clock and kitchen cabinets for my parents. I remember his deep, strong voice leading singing at family gatherings. And I remember Uncle John's "punny" sense of humour, in that he once handed me a small, circular piece of wood that had "TUIT" printed on it: "Now you can't say that you haven't gotten a round TUIT [to it]," he joked. I'm so very sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Julie Dueck Chychota (Mary's brother Jake's daughter) on: Nov 15, 2020

  • Uncle Johnie will always be fondly remembered by me. - Posted by: Joan Casado (Niece ) on: Nov 15, 2020

  • On behalf of my wife Natalie, myself, and our family we offer our condolences on the passing of your father/grandfather/brother/etc. I had lots of contact with Uncle John over the years as I worked for him at Skills Unlimited. He was the one who called me to offer the job when I was recently married and was without work, so he was highly responsible for setting me on a path to be a supervisor there, and a manager at subsequent workplaces. I am grateful for that, and for his good leadership there. I remember overhearing him sharing the good news of Jesus love and salvation with another manager there. I hope his whole family will carry on that legacy of being a faithful witness, as I know many are. - Posted by: Jason Dueck (Nephew) on: Nov 14, 2020
