Memorable Manitobans: Peter Dyck (1946-2012)


Born at Essen, Germany on 13 February 1946, eldest child of Jacob and Helene Dyck, he emigrated to Canada with his family and spent a year at Pincher Creek, Alberta before moving to Steinbach, Manitoba. He attended the University of Manitoba then worked as a chemist for Inco at Thompson, Manitoba before taking a job as a reporter at The Carillon newspaper in 1969. He stayed there for nearly 44 years until his death. His community service was recognized with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. He died suddenly, at Steinbach, on 8 December 2012.
