Obituary for John Henry Dyck

Eden’s Funeral Home
John Henry Dyck of Pincher Creek passed away peacefully on Jan. 14, 2022, at the age of 78, at the Pincher Creek hospital. John was the steadfastly devoted husband of Petra Dyck (née Siewert).

Born to Henry and Judith Dyck in Coaldale, Alta., on April 4, 1943, John later moved with his parents and siblings to Pincher Creek in 1949, where he grew up and lived with his wife and four children.

John had a love of many things — his family, storytelling, travelling and seeing various places, fishing, golfing and coffee with friends. His church and faith were also an important part of his life; even with a small nap in church he found time to share his faith with his family and friends.

John had a knack for chatting and interrupting people so that he could make sure they got the whole story. If asked how he was doing, John would reply, “Never had a bad day in my life. Some days were better than others.” He prided himself on remembering names and dates. He loved to laugh and have fun and was willing to share his happiness with others.

Besides Petra, his wife of 53 years, John is survived by his children, Ramona & Karl in Lethbridge, Dwayne in Pincher Creek, Jason & Debbie in Red Deer, Troy, and Amy in Edmonton; and his grandchildren, Ayrton, Sabrina, Kurt, Cory, Maddix, Tyler and Ella. John is also survived by his brother and sister-in-law Nick and June Dyck, brother Gordon Dyck, sister Bev Janzen, and brother and sister-in-law Fred and Anne Dyck; as well as Petra’s brother and sister-in-law Wulf and Gy Siewert, brother Thomas Schulz, sister-in-law Connie Schulz and Hal Gallop, and numerous nieces and nephews and their families.

John was predeceased by his parents, Henry and Judith Dyck, brother Henry, brother-in-law Jake Janzen, mother-in-law Anneliese VonChorus and brother-in-law Martin Schulz.

A memorial service, officiated by Tany Warkentin, will be held via Zoom at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 29, 2022. To join the service by computer, please go to www.edensfuneralhome.com/obituary/John-Dyck. Due to limited seating at Springridge Mennonite Church, attendance will be by invitation only.
