Randy Dyck

November 1, 1961 ~ August 13, 2023 (age 61) 61 Years Old


Randall “Randy” Dyck, age 61, passed away peacefully after a courageous and well-fought battle with cancer on Sunday, August 13, 2023 at Clover House, Swift Current, SK with his wife, Sandra, and family by his side.

Randall Henry Dyck was born November 1, 1961 to Henry & Anna Dyck in Swift Current and grew up in Rosenhoff, SK with his six siblings. Randy married Sandra Allan on January 15, 1983 in Swift Current and together they raised two children — Heather and Kurtis.

In 1985, Randy received his interprovincial seal (red seal) in construction while he was working for Ben Banman at Buddy Construction. When Ben retired, Randy did some sub-contracting until joining Wallace Construction in the fall of 1994, when they were just getting started. Randy remained with Wallace for 30 years until his passing, everything he set his hand to, he put his heart into. He loved working at Wallace Construction and in a tribute they posted online, it’s clear that he was a valued team member and that the staff there weren’t just coworkers, but friends.

Randy quickly became one of our most relied on employees and even more quickly, a friend. Randy was with us before we had a commercial space, before we had equipment and trucks or employees to juggle. He worked on thousands of projects – big or small – we could trust Randy with it all, and so did our clients. Randy was “our guy” for a lot of things — stairs, framing, doors and windows, and all things hunting. We know his workmanship and 30 years of dedication helped us get where we are today, words will never express our gratitude.

Anyone who knew Randy also knew that he was passionate about the outdoors and hunting — that was his happy place. Be it northern Saskatchewan for moose and elk, Smeaton, SK for bears, or southwest Saskatchewan for deer, he loved it all. Many content hours were spent driving around and “spotting” for deer, a Sunday afternoon drive was a given, especially in fall as it closed in on hunting season.

From the online tribute, “Darrel (Wallace) shared two bear hunting trips with Randy where they were able to reminisce, relax, and enjoy each other’s company in the tree blind between naps. No cell phones, no emails, no worries from the “outside world” to distract from their experience.

Family was incredibly important to Randy and he took his grandkids under his wing, teaching them how to shoot a rifle and sharing his love of the outdoors. On camping trips, they dubbed him a “land-lover” as he preferred being in nature but on land, not in the water. Randy was always in front of the BBQ, cooking for everyone, and especially enjoyed what he was able to bring to the table from hunting. Randy loved a good cup of coffee, especially Tim Horton’s, and enjoyed many visits over coffee with his friends, where conversation would inevitably turn to rifles and hunting.

Randy had a shy smile, a wonderful chuckle, and warm and welcoming nature. He will be deeply missed by everyone who knew and loved him.

Randy is survived by his wife, Sandra Dyck; his children, Heather (Pascal) Gaetz and Kurtis Dyck; his grandchildren, Kiara, Kaeden, Emberlyn, Jessilin, Randalyn, and Zeric; his mother, Anna Dyck (Swift Current, SK); his sisters, Lorna (Bob) Barrie (Banff, AB), Grace (Jim) Smith (Canmore, AB), Darla (Kelly) Cassidy (Swift Current, SK), and Sandra J. Dyck (Swift Current, SK); his brothers, Bob (Marilyn) Dyck (Rosenhoff, SK) and Steve (Shauna) Dyck (Regina, SK); his sisters-in-law, Cheryl McKinley (Swift Current, SK), Carol Pope (Swift Current, SK), and Darlene (Tom) Trithart (Broadview, SK); and by numerous nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, and cousins.

Randy was predeceased by his father, Henry P. Dyck (1991); his parents-in-law, John (2017) & Verna (2000) Allan; his brother-in-law, Gordon Allan (2009); and by his sister-in-law, Melody Parks (2022).
