DYCK, Ian (1954-2007)
It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing of Ian DYCK, a remarkable father, son, brother, teacher, scholar and friend. Ian passed away in Vancouver on July 15, eight months after a bone marrow transplant and seven years from diagnosis of a chronic form of lymphocytic leukemia. A proud son of Saskatchewan farmers, Ian completed B.A. and M.A. degrees at the University of Saskatchewan before receiving a doctorate from the University of Sussex. After postings in Saskatoon and Lethbridge he arrived in 1988 at Simon Fraser University, where he became an associate professor of History. His William Cobbett and Rural Popular Culture, published by Cambridge University Press in 1992, established a reputation that he enhanced with two edited collections, a dozen articles and scores of reviews. He will perhaps be best remembered as a superb teacher, a talent that won him the university's Excellence in Teaching Award in 1991. Hundreds of undergraduates delighted in his Western Civilization lectures and seminar on Popular Culture in Britain, and few professors made such an impression on graduate students. He is survived by two daughters, Jenny DYCK of Ottawa, and Katie DYCK of Vancouver; his father, Clifford DYCK, of Saskatoon; and siblings Murray DYCK of Borden, Saskatchewan, and Sherrie CULVER of Moose Jaw. A memorial gathering will be held at the farm of Murray and Linda DYCK of Borden on Saturday, July 28, at 2 p.m. Another gathering will take place at Simon Fraser in the fall, date to be announced.

DYCK, Jakob " Jake"
Husband, father, tradesman, friend. Born September 19, 1933, in Osterwick, Ukraine. Died June 21 in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, of kidney cancer, aged 73.
By Rita BISHOP, Brenda DYCK and Wayne BISHOP, Page L8
What you noticed first about Jake was his size - he did not need padding to fill out his Santa suit.
As a young man, Jake's strength became his trademark. Fellow college students nicknamed him Samson after watching in disbelief as he ripped a phone book in half. Years later he amazed onlookers when, at age 70, he lifted the back end of a neighbour's car to release an injured pet following an accident.
A machinist by trade, Jake worked at Stelco Inc. in Hamilton, Ontario, before joining General Motors in St. Catharines. Jake's skill and expertise advanced him to a supervisory role in the foundry.
Jake was a devoted husband, married for more than 51 years to Eleonore (Lori) GOOSSEN. He was immensely proud of his two daughters and his son-in-law. Religious faith was key in Jake's life. He attended Fairview Mennonite Brethren Church, where he and Lori served as deacons for 12 years.
Retirement afforded Jake and Lori time to indulge Jake's love of travel. Jake also operated a workshop in his barn, repairing bicycles, tractors and farm equipment.
Jake loved to entertain with his tall tales. His barn doubled as the meeting place for his daily coffee group; most mornings found Jake surrounded by a circle of Friends and neighbours.
If not in his workshop, Jake could be found helping his friend Chris run the Virgil Truck and Car Washington. Dealing with the public was Jake's forte. His good-humoured service style and his ear-to-ear grin made him popular.
He liked to help: When Jake learned that migrant workers from the neighbouring farm had no transportation, he provided bicycles. He kept a jar for cash donations in his workshop. In addition to the entry fee of a Tim Hortons double-double, his morning coffee buddies were expected to contribute as Jake raised money to fund a well in Africa.
He and Lori routinely delivered groceries to the needy and opened their home on three occasions to foster children. His compassion extended to animals as well; over the years, Jake's menagerie included stray cats, dogs, chickens, a horse, a goat and a pig.
In January, Jake suffered a stroke and was later diagnosed with cancer. Hospital staff were amazed at his bright attitude and enjoyed the big smile he readily flashed for his many visitors. Even the hospital chaplain stopped by Jake's room regularly to receive inspiration.
"Big Jake" was a gentle giant with a heart of gold. The big shoes he leaves behind can never be filled but his big smile remains with those who knew him.
Rita BISHOP and Brenda DYCK are Jake's daughters, Wayne BISHOP his son-in-law.

CUMMING, Reverend Doctor Ivan Everett
Ivan CUMMING died unexpectedly on Thanksgiving Sunday, October 7, 2007, at Vancouver General Hospital, British Columbia. He spent his last days reflecting, telling stories, and holding close family: Nina, his high school sweetheart and wife of 58 years children Lois (Rob SMITH,) Connie (Gordon CALDWELL,) Pat (David PEARCE) and Victor (Mary-Ann REID;) grandchildren Antonia (Steve,) Roberta (Keith), Sarah, Matthew, Shane, Andrew, Scott, Jason, Lindsey, Kate; great-grandchild Owen; sister-in-law Lillie BAILEY and nephew Larrie McDONALD and family (Andrew, Jessica, Amber, Dawn, MacKenzie;) and nieces, Doctor Millie CUMMING and Caryll DYCK. Ivan is also survived by younger brothers Len and Carman, many nieces and nephews, and great-grandchildren Haley and Kyle.
Ivan was born on September 1, 1927, and raised on the family farm in Barrie, Ontario, ninth of eleven children. His formative years with his immediate and large extended family provided him with the values, love, and stories he shared with all of his acquaintances throughout his lifetime. He was a recognized high school athlete and Valedictorian of his graduating class. Ivan earned degrees from the University of Western Ontario, Queen's Theological College, and Oberlin Theological College, including a Doctor of Ministry and later an Honorary Doctor of Divinity from St. Stephen's College, Alberta. His ministry in the United Church of Canada spanned 60 years from 1947 and 2007 and afforded him many roles. He worked in Vermilion Bay and Hilton, Ontario Golden and Burnaby (Deer Lake), British Columbia; Oberlin (Presbyterian Church), Ohio; Vancouver (British Columbia Field Secretary for Christian Education); Naramata (Director of Naramata Centre) British Columbia; Trinidad (Presbyterian Church); and then again in Vancouver, British Columbia as Executive Secretary for British Columbia Conference and Minister of Ryerson United. After retirement in 1993, Ivan continued as an Organizational Development Consultant, a facilitator of Seniors' education and activities (including the British Columbia provincial Seniors' Summits), and as an educator.
He and Nina worked and traveled the world extensively-both for pleasure and in a volunteer capacity. Ivan will be remembered as an inspired storyteller and passionate punster, a dedicated and loving husband and father, a proud and giving (great) grandfather, a leader, educator, mentor, generous friend to many, and avid curler. A memorial service, celebrating Ivan's life and gifts will be held at Ryerson United Church on Saturday, October 20, 2007, at 2 p.m. To those wishing to send cards and flowers, please do so directly to the Ryerson Memorial Centre, 2195 W. 45th Ave, Vancouver British Columbia, V6M 2J2. Memories of Ivan can be shared at www.ivancumming.ca.
