Obituary

Dennis Roy Dyck

 

At 73 years of age, while at his residence near Rossendale, Manitoba, Dennis Dyck went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 31, 2021.

Dennis was predeceased by his parents Peter and Bertha Dyck and his brother, Lloyd. Dennis is survived by his wife Clarice, his daughters Phoebe (David) and Amy, and his grandson Logan.

Dennis was the third youngest of thirteen children. He was born in Gladstone, Manitoba, on February 18, 1948. Dennis grew up in southern Manitoba. After living in the mining town of Flin Flon for a short time, around the age of 18, Dennis received the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour. Dennis’s life was dramatically changed. He wanted to learn more about his Saviour, and so he registered at Nipawin Bible College in Nipawin, Saskatchewan. It was there he met Clarice Zacharias. Dennis and Clarice were married August 2, 1969.

Dennis and Clarice moved to Owatonna, Minnesota, so that Dennis could further his Bible education. It was there that their daughter Phoebe was born. Later, he attended the University of Manitoba to obtain a degree in education. During this time, Amy was born and their family was complete. After receiving his education, Dennis went to work for the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs, and worked for 10 years on four different First Nations reservations. He found his passion and talent was working in administration, and so he became principal at four different schools over the years. While principal at Carnduff, Dennis pursued and completed his Master’s Degree in education at Brandon University. His last position as principal was at Tween Valley Christian School, until he retired in 2019. Dennis always rooted for the underdog and loved helping people, especially his students from his various schools. Dennis had few joys greater than seeing a life turned around for the Lord Jesus Christ. His favourite subjects to teach were Bible and history from a biblical perspective. Dennis travelled with his family to Europe more than once and was a life-long learner. He had a love for missions, and had hoped one day to minister to the gypsies in Romania. He never had the opportunity, but gave what he could through money, time and prayer to those who dedicated their lives to missions.

Dennis loved the Lord, his wife and his girls, his grandson and his son-in-law, his family and friends, learning, music, singing, Bible prophecy, travelling, hockey, and (especially) coffee.
