We Remember

DYCK, Irvin Edward

Irvin went to be with the Lord at Hospice House in Kelowna on March 26, 2019, surrounded by his family. He is survived by his loving wife Patricia Dyck of 45 years; daughter Cassidy deVeer (Gerald); son Dustin Dyck (Nina); grandchildren Kali deVeer, Lucas deVeer; sisters Anita Thiessen (Al), Dianne Janzen (Harv) and Evelyn Carter (Rick); six sisters-in-law Donna, Barb, Linda, Marjory, Debbie and Doreen; three brothers-in-law Doug, Duane and Dean; and numerous nieces, nephews and many dear friends. Irvin is predeceased by his parents Abe and Sue Dyck, and brothers-in-law David, Darryl, Danny and Allan.

Irv married the girl of his dreams. He went home after seeing her and told all his friends “I’m gonna marry that girl” and it turns out he was right. They were married for 45 years, which means Patricia made him approximately 11,700 peanut butter sandwiches. He had 2 successful children and lived in a beautiful home. Irv traveled to over 25 countries and ate at some of the best restaurants in the world. He had the chance to play many rounds of golf. Unfortunately, he was unable to witness the Minnesota Vikings win a Super Bowl, but let’s be honest, that’s likely not something any of us will ever see.

A special thanks to Dr. Appleby and the kind and considerate care we received at Hospice.

  • Janice Thompson says:

    So sorry for your loss.

  • Lydia bergen says:

    I want to express my sincere sympathy and love to you pat and your family. I remember a visit from Irvin while we were still in Winnipeg. That was during his racing days. We had such a fun time. He also gave me a ride in one of his cars down a back lane in Abbotsford. It was s bit scary for me but we had a great time. May the peace and presence of God surround you at this time of loss. Love aunt Lydia. (Sue,s youngest sister)

  • Brownie Dove says:

    A life well lived for sure, but too short. For many years Irv was my best customer, both in volume of sales and especially the quality of our relationship. He treated me more as a friend than a supplier (although he always somehow got the best price). My thoughts are with Patricia, Dustin, Cassidy and Irv’s grandchildren.

  • Brenda Epp says:

    Patricia, i’ll be thinking of you ….for strength, to sustain you, healing tears, and for your broken heart. I know what it is to be a widow and I hold you in my prayers.

  • Penny McAuley says:

  • Zeno & Sandy Cescon says:

    Dear Pat, Cassidy, Dustin and families. So sad to hear of Irv’s passing. It seems like just yesterday we were chatting in regards to his diagnosis. He loved his family, friends and trips. I will really miss that pat on my shoulder at the Rocket’s hockey games. Memories do last forever. Outside Ceres condolences. Zeno & Sandy Cescon

  • Brenda Epp says:

    Dear Patricia, i’m thinking of you and your family. This is such a painful time. with love, Brenda

  • Paul Kirkpatrick says:

    Irv was a gentleman who always made we feel welcome when I visited him in his store. Enjoyed the meals we shared and getting to know you better the last few years. Rest in peace.

  • Jorin Wolf says:

    although I did not know Irv well, I surely enjoyed our banter when I came in the store and saw him sitting in his booth!
    he will certainly be missed by everyone. some people are simply not replaceable.

  • Shaun Barr says:

    So sorry to hear of Irv’s passing. I remember our times on all the supplier trips we were on together and all the laughs we had . You both made us feel so welcome and included. I pray for you Patricia and your family in this terrible loss!

  • Palahniuk Family says:

    Our sincerest condolences to the Dyck Family! He was always so friendly and welcoming whenever we visited the store!
