WILLIAM ROY DICK
Roy, as he was known, was born on February 6, 1948 in Carman, MB and was raised in Elm Creek by his parents, Wilhelm and Eva (Fleming) Dick. He grew up with three brothers, Robert, Richard and Jeff. Roy left home as a teenager and enlisted with the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry. He worked as a loader operator in Manitoba, British Columbia and in Alberta where he started his own construction business.
Roy married Emily Allan in 1973 and they had two children, Shelley (Marcel) and Steven (Carly). They raised their family in Garson, MB and later lived in Medicine Hat and Portage La Prairie. Roy was a proud grandfather to Willem and Damian.
Roy was the kind of person that led with kindness and humour. He had a tremendous heart and was beloved by all who were lucky to know him. Roy and Emily shared a special kind of love that was felt by all. Roy loved to go fishing and felt most at peace by the water. He will be greatly missed.
A memorial will be held for Roy in the summer of 2022.
Dearest Dad, the world is shifting
without your light, but it also burns
brighter in all of us forever.
