Bernard "Bernie" Jacob Dyck passed away on Thursday November 19, 2015 at Cascade Hospice at the age of 77 years old. Bernie was born January 29, 1938 in Saskatchewan, but was raised in Yarrow BC and lived most of his life in Chilliwack BC.
Bernie is survived by his daughter Carol Dyck, his sisters Anne Reimer and Helen Thiessen and brother Henry Dyck.
Bernie spent his early years apprenticing and working in carpentry. After a serious back injury, he went to work selling cars and RV's which he greatly enjoyed. Bernie loved to spend time outdoors working in the yard, building things and most of all camping. He spent many a weekend with his family at the campgrounds of Cultus Lake. Bernie also really enjoyed playing board games and was often the winner, reading, doing math and working on word puzzles.
He loved his God, his family and friends with all his heart, to him people came before anything else that was going on.
A great big thank you for the wonderful care of Dr. Paul Graham who came alongside Bernie with his health challenges in the last number of years and to Dr. Bull and the staff of Cascades Hospice who were instrumental in making his final days as comfortable as possible.
A visitation at Henderson's Funeral home will be held Thursday November 26, 2015 from 6-8 in the evening. The memorial service will be at Broadway Church on Friday November 27, 2015 at 1:30 pm.
