In Loving Memory Of

Harold Irving Dick

 

Harold Irving Dick, resident of Grande Prairie, formerly of Peoria and Wanham area, passed away on Tuesday, January 24, 2017, at the University of Alberta Hospital, in Edmonton, at the age of 88 years.

Harold was born in Beiseker, AB on September 26, 1928. At the age of 7, his family moved to homestead in Peoria in the Peace River country. In 1949, Harold married Elaine MacDonald, the local school marm, and they gradually built a successful mixed farm where they remained for the next 55 years.

During his years on the farm, he thrived on the land raising grain, cattle and other animals as he loved nature and raising his family with the farm way of life.

He believed in hard work, paying for things in cash, and helping others. There wasn’t anything that he couldn’t fix, often with few resources. He loved the outdoors: hunting, fishing, camping, trapping and made many a call behind home plate.

After retirement he enjoyed watching the “Blue Jays” and “Oilers”, woodworking and spending time with his grandchildren.

Harold will be sadly missed by his wife Elaine of 67 years of Grande Prairie; children: Wayne (Gail) of Sturgeon County, Barry (Linda) of Calgary, Laurie (Glen) of St. Albert, and Greg (Shari) of Nelson, BC; 9 grandchildren; 2 great-grandchildren; as well as numerous family and friends. He is survived by his sister Lavina Huether of Grande Prairie, brother Harvey (Connie) Dick of Lacombe, brother Richard (Lacy) Dick of Kelowna, and brother in-law Bob (Ellen) MacDonald of Leduc.

He was predeceased by his parents John and Helen Dick of Peoria, sister in-law Eileen MacDonald of Cold Lake and brother in-law Alvin Huether of Heart Valley.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Monday, January 30, 2017, at 1:00pm, at the Jackpot Grill Conference Room in Grande Prairie (10904 92 Ave.). Viewing will be held prior to the service. Cremation and Interment to take place at a later date.
