Jacob Dyck
1932 - 2020
 
After a year of struggling with the last stages of prostate cancer, Jacob (Jake) Dyck, age 87 formerly of Eyebrow, SK, passed away early morning Easter Monday, April 13, 2020, at Boundary Trails Health Centre.
 
Dad was born on May 21, 1932 in Neuhorst, Ukraine; then called Russia. He was the second of seven children. During the war, Dad’s family fled from Russia to Germany, and then to Canada in 1948. After a few years in Saskatchewan, the family moved to Alberta. There he married Anne Klassen on July 20, 1958. Dad worked in the dam construction industry, driving truck and heavy equipment. This job eventually took him back to Saskatchewan to help build the Gardiner Dam. Dad always wanted to farm, and he got his chance in 1965. Together with Anne, they farmed for the next 29 years in the Eyebrow area. Upon retirement in 1994, he enjoyed golfing, and many trips with Anne, visiting family, friends and seeing some of the world. They moved to Winkler in 2014 to be close to family. Here, they enjoyed meeting new friends, getting involved in the Mennonite Bergthaler Church, and going to concerts. Dad had a strong faith, which was evident in the way he lived and in the choices he made in his life.
 
He is survived by his wife, Anne (nee Klassen), daughter, Connie (Gord) and their children; Lynette, Jeremy, and Alyssa, and sons, Marvin (Dorothy) and their children; Christy and Joey, Tim (Tatyana) and their child Sasha, and Larry (Lana). He was predeceased by his parents, one sister, four brothers-in-law and two sisters-in law.
