Edwin (Ed) Dyck Oct. 29, 1950 – Jan. 18, 2017 It is with great sadness, the family of Ed announces his peaceful passing surrounded by loved ones at the Red Deer Hospice in Red Deer AB after a long, hard fought battle with Cancer at the age of 66. Born in Warman Saskatchewan, Ed was predeceased by his Father Herman, Mother Tina, older brother Eldon and close brother-in-law Neil (Diana). He leaves behind his wife of 43 years, Carole Dyck (Clayton), daughter Sherri (Sean), grandchildren Elise and Ivy; son Ryan (Sara), grandchildren Marcus, Macy and Tatum. He will also be missed by many close brothers and sisters; brothers Earl (Diane), Larry (Carol) and sisters Diana, and Mary (Clarence).
Forever a sports fan, Ed was happiest on the golf course with his family, on the ice backstopping his teammates and in the locker room (or parking lot) where his teammates became friends. He found great happiness later in life on the couch watching Hockey Night in Canada with whoever happened to be around. When his athletic days wound down, he enjoyed supporting Carole in her passions on the dog show circuit proudly showing Carole’s beloved Papillons. After Ed fell ill, he truly found the greatest pleasure simply by being in the presence of his loved ones. He left this world with the comfort and knowledge that his legacy will be remembered and will live on in the spirit of laughter and joy. Always one for a good laugh and a good session at the game table, Ed will be remembered as a devoted husband to one, supportive, caring dad to two, happy brother and confidante to four, loving grandfather to five; not to mention his impact and place in the hearts of many nieces and nephews who will always cherish fond memories of “Uncle Eddie”.
A celebration of Ed’s life will be held at Piersons Funeral Home – 4121 17 ave SE Calgary AB (www.piersons.ca) – Friday, February 3 at 1:00pm. It will be an informal celebration of life with a desired environment of levity, openness and dignified remembrance. There will be ample opportunity for attendees to share memories or stories of Ed, feel free to come prepared to share your story of Ed; or sit back and enjoy a good laugh – this is how Ed would have wanted it. The family of Ed wishes to celebrate his life and to take pride in the positive impact he made on the lives of so many.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to the charity Kidsport (kidsportcanada.ca).
