Obituary for Harry VanDyke

Harry VanDyke joined his Lord and Savior on Friday, November 22, 2019 surrounded by family.

Harry was born June 14, 1925 in Nobleford, Alberta, Canada to parents Ernest and Helen (Kooy) VanDyke. He graduated from Three Hills Bible School/Prairie Bible Institute.

Harry married Evelyn Kornelis on August 12, 1953 in Sumas, Washington.

Harry was a sugar beet farmer in Alberta for 20 years before moving to Lynden in 1965. He became a flooring installer/salesman working for Ralph’s Floors until retiring in 2000.

Harry was a member of Bethel Christian Reformed Church. He felt that a person’s relationship with Jesus Christ and love for Him and His people should be your number one priority in life. He was a member of Concerned Christian Citizens, the Kings Men of Song (for 18 years), The Gideons and Monroe Prison Ministry.

He enjoyed playing hockey into his 50’s, his harmonica, and visiting with people.
Harry is survived by son Richard and his children Luke and Morgan; daughter Nola (Jeff) Lagerwey and their children Jeremy and Dayn; daughter Marilyn (Dan) Gross and their children Justin, Kristi, and Kendra; grandson Michael VanDyke, and sister Berdena Postman.

Harry is preceded in death by wife Evelyn, son James VanDyke, and brothers Ralph VanDyke and Ernest VanDyke.
