June 5, 1944 – January 17, 2022
at the age of 77 years
We hope you can join us on Sat Feb the 12th 3-6 pm at the Copper Island Pub.
It is with great sadness in our hearts and most loving of memories, that we share the passing of our Andy.
Andy was born in Saskatoon, SK and lived in Sherwood Park outside of Edmonton AB, then moved to Blind Bay, BC in 2007.
The life together with his wife Shirley of 59 years and married for 53, brought with it many great adventures. His great pride in life were his daughters, Christine & husband Cory Grundberg, Jennifer & partner Todd Butler and their extended families. His beloved grandchildren Bryce Dykes & wife Shanna and extended family, Ariana Robella, Ryean Rasmussen & partner Keith Schmidt, Kade & Jaedenn Rasmussen, his great-grandchildren Sophia & Charlie Rose Dykes and Jasper Schmidt.
He was predeceased by his parents James & Nettie Dykes, and will be dearly missed by his sister Margaret Telford & family, brother Jim Dykes and wife Lillian, along with his extended family and many great friends. Andy touched the lives of so many with his big smiles, big stories and big dreams. He made it known that he lived his life to the fullest and had no regrets.
There were no goodbyes, but rather he would say, “See you all on the other side”.
In memory of our Andy, we look forward to raising a glass to toast the wonderful life he had. We hope you can join us on Sat Feb the 12th 3-6 pm at the Copper Island Pub. Leave your sadness at the door, but rather bring your stories, your laughs and your memories of the good times you shared with Andy.
