Justin was so loved, he belonged to all of us. Justins uncles in Winnipeg, Robert Dyck, Marvin Dyck (Marlene), Dave Dyck (Yvette), Kelvin Dyck and cousins Jared, Kristin, Michelle, Leslie and Travis and their families. Predeceased by Aaron and Anne Dyck (grandparents). Also left behind was his favorite companion Plinko who never left his side.
Justin was born in Swan River, MB but shortly afterwards moved to Winnipeg where he spent the majority his school years, participating in organ lessons, hockey, soccer, football, baseball, cadets, but his favorite hanging out with his friends. Later moving to BC where he completed his senior high in Kamloops. Justins favorites memories and dreams were of the years after graduating when he worked in silvaculture in the bush with his brother and his buddies at his side having worked in the Queen Charlottes, BC, Alberta, and even Montreal and Quebec and where his school years in French Immersion in Winnipeg were quite helpful. After being diagnosed with brain cancer 10 years ago he couldnt work as physically hard but loved his part-time job in shoes at Winners in Kelowna. He fought his battle with cancer bravely and was our hero, living life to the fullest. There were difficult times but he handled his life with dignity and a smile. He loved the outdoors and camping, his computer, his herbal remedies. He loved to travel and spent wonderful family vacations in Mexico, LA and his favorite, Vancouver Island. Over the past few years Justin obtained his motorcycle license, his firearms license and boat license and enjoyed driving his little old boat around the beautiful Okanagan lakes last summer.
The family wishes to express their thanks to Dr. Sauciuc, Justins oncologist and the staff at CSI (Kelowna Cancer Centre), Dr. Chamberlain, Dycks Pharmacy and everyone involved in his care and which without we wouldnt have had these past 10 precious years with him.
You will always be with us Justin, never forgotten, always loved;
rest in peace our dear Justin.
