It is with great sadness that the family of Tyler Jordan Dyck, age 24, of Steinbach, Manitoba announces his sudden passing at their home in Steinbach, on Sunday October 4, 2009.
Besides his parents Jake and Dianne Dyck, he is survived by his sister Kassandra and her friend Nathan Klassen. He is also survived by his very special friend Sabrina Amador.
He is further survived by his paternal grandfather Jacob A. Dyck and by his maternal grandparents Bill and Tina Kehler, all of Steinbach; and by numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was predeceased by his paternal grandmother Helena Dyck and by his loving aunt Aida Junio Dyck.
Tyler received his elementary and high school education in Steinbach and recently completed his studies at the University of Manitoba. In spring this year he embarked on a new career as a power electrician trainee with Manitoba Hydro and was eagerly anticipating beginning the academic portion of his training in Winnipeg. Throughout his high school and university years he worked in various positions at McDonald’s in Steinbach, a job he always excelled at and took great pride in. He also tried his hand at construction work under the watchful eye of his Uncle Andy Kehler.
Tyler had an extraordinary ability to get along with everyone he met, be it at work, school or during leisure activities which included water sports, scuba diving, camping, mountain biking, curling and IPSC events. He was especially gifted in computer technology which he turned into a serious hobby leading him to fine-tune the computers of countless family members and friends. His love of music was evident early in life and he had literally thousands of songs in his music collection and was more than happy to share with fellow music-lovers. His love of live music took him to many concerts and other music venues.
He was baptized upon confession of his faith on December 17, 2006 at Steinbach Mennonite Church. He was an active participant in Boys Clubs, Junior Youth, Senior Youth and most recently, Young Adults in the church and played an important role in the multimedia productions and presentations during Sunday services.
Viewing will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 8 at Steinbach Mennonite Church with services on Friday, October 9 at 2:00 p.m. Interment will follow at Heritage Cemetery.
