DYCK, Abraham "Abe" Jacob "To live on in the hearts of others is not to die."
April 21, 1944 - June 4, 2011
With heartfelt love and deep sorrow, we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandfather, brother, and uncle.
Abe was born in Cabri, Saskatchewan, travelled to BC with his family and was raised on the family farm in Yarrow.
He was a long-time employee as an equipment operator for Elk Creek Waterworks and then for the City of Chilliwack, where he settled and raised his family.
Dad coached girls' softball and is remembered for his gentle manner, fun-loving sportsmanship and many victory game trips to the Dairy Queen in the back of his pick-up.
An avid gardener, hobby machinist and an enthusiastic BC day-tripper, Dad was also a great cook who loved nothing more than to share a home cooked meal with family.
Abe is survived by daughters Terresa Rempel and Deborah Petrovitch, sisters Jessie Dyck and Rose Adrian (Peter), grandchildren Steven Rempel (Jacquie), Nyah Petrovitch and numerous nieces and nephews.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the staff and volunteers at CGH and the Christine Morrison Hospice in Mission who provided such loving respect and care in his final days.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Riding Club Hall on July 16, 2011 at 1:30. Donations to the Salvation Army Food Bank would be a gracious gift to Dad's memory.
Dad, you are loved and missed beyond measure.
