He was predeceased by his parents, Tom and Margaret Aitkenhead.
Wayne was born on May 5, 1938 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. His family moved to Chilliwack when he was 11. As a young man, he was very active in various sports such as football, soccer, track & field, baseball and basketball.
His early working years started in the logging industry, then in 1964 he joined the Union of Operating Engineers Local 115. His work as a heavy equipment operator took him all over BC and Alberta working on many roads and highways as well as various work on pipelines. In the mid 1980’s he left from operating machinery and became an inspector on the pipelines until he retired in 1997.
Wayne always loved his sports, whether on TV or a live game. He took great pride in watching his grandsons participate. He was the loudest fan and the refs greatest critic! He loved watching the Chilliwack Chiefs and Bruins, Vancouver Canucks and BC Lions. He had seasons tickets to many of them throughout the years.
These last years, Wayne could be found most mornings at the “round table” in the Royal Hotel, solving the world’s problems over a cup of coffee. He had many great friends, new and old, to which he was loyal and supportive. If anyone ever needed anything, he never said no. He was a devoted and loving family man, with a special affection for his grandchildren and great-grandson Kaden, who could always put a sparkle in his eye and a smile on his face.
We will all miss him for many special reasons... He was a big man with a big heart.

DYCK, Alannah - Monday, 09 Jul 2007
Alannah Marie Irene Dyck passed away suddenly at her home in Chilliwack, BC on July 9, 2007.
Alannah was born in Chilliwack on October 24, 1963 and lived in the area for most of her life. She was the youngest child of Jack and Eileen Dyck, and therefore maintained the title of “baby” of the family.
In her early adult life, Alannah spent some time employed as a home-care worker, until her own health issues forced her to retire.
She had a great love for all animals, especially her cats and special canine companion, Shelby. Alannah also loved to roller blade and play tennis and was learning how to play golf in recent months.
Her emotions were often expressed through her original works of art and poetry and most family members are fortunate enough to have some of these treasures to remember her by. She also became very adept at computer imaging and produced many unique photos for her family and friends.
Perhaps Alannah will best be remembered for her compassion towards those who suffered from disabilities. Even when she faced her own challenges, she was willing to offer words of encouragement to those who needed them. She made a daily habit of visiting her mother in the mornings to share a cup of tea and check up on her.
Alannah was predeceased by her father Jack Dyck; stepfather, Real Dubois; brother, David Dyck; sister, Trudy Radloff; nephew, Jason Gray; and niece, Madison Dyck.
Left to mourn Alannah’s passing are her mother, Eileen Dubois Perry; stepfather Ray Perry; siblings, Brenda (Al) Johnstone, Daniel (Debbi) Dyck, Pam (Jean) Paradis; nieces and nephews, David J., John (Shelbi), Jamie, David M., Joey (Serena), Erin (Casey), Jeremy (Deanna), Kylie, Damien, Faith-Lynn; special cousins Dan and Linda Ward; long-time friend Scott Campbell; as well as many other friends and family members.
A service to honour Alannah’s life will be held - Tuesday, July 24, 2007 at 2:00 pm at the Community of Christ Church, 9845 Carleton St; Elders Ron Fetterly and Fred Robbins officiating. A time of refreshment and visiting with the family to follow. Woodlawn Mt. Cheam Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
The family would like to thank the many friends and professionals who were a part of Alannah’s life. Your love and concern will not be forgotten.
