Dick Dyk, age 89, of Platte, SD was called home to his faithful savior Jesus on Thursday, October 22, 2020 at Platte Health Center Avera. What a glorious celebration as he once again embraces his mother and father. A family reunion is being held at Heaven’s Gate. Entry is NOT based on his lifetime of service, his sweet character, or any wonderful act that Dick accomplished while on this earth, but ONLY because of Jesus’ death and resurrection and Dick’s personal acceptance of that gift of salvation. Eph 2:8

Dick was born on June 24, 1931 in Platte, SD to Harm and Nancy (Dykstra) Dyk and graduated from Platte High School in 1949, then entered into the service of our country by joining the US Army. He attended basic training in Fort Sill, Oklahoma in 1950 and served overseas in Korea as a surveyor on the front line during 1951. Dick’s military service ended in 1953. On October 13, 1955, Dick was united in marriage to Margaret I. Star at the Corsica Christian Reformed Church in Corsica, SD.

For 34 years, Dick and Margie lived on a farm northwest of Platte, SD. Their home was blessed with four daughters. In 1989, due to various health reasons, Dick and Margie sold the family farm and moved into Platte, SD where Dick worked in home construction.

Dick loved to study the Catechism and had the pleasure to teach it to many young people in the local area.

Dick had a love for auctions and all things antique. A vast collection was accumulated and liquidated many times throughout the years. Dick also loved flowers and had an extensive garden for many years. Anytime someone would stop to look at the beautiful flower garden, he was quick to give God the glory.

In 1992, Dick suffered a massive heart attack and had a quadruple bypass. He has always been very grateful that the Lord spared his life at that time and that he was blessed with many more years.

In 2000, Dick and Margie started traveling to Cary, Mississippi during the winter months where they felt called to serve the Lord as volunteers at the Cary Christian Center. This mission was a deep passion where they served until 2015, meeting many people that have remained lifelong friends.

Dick leaves behind: his wife of 65 years, Margie Dyk of Platte, SD; four daughters: Vicki (Gorden) Munneke of Harrison, SD, Julie (Scott) Feenstra of Corsica, SD, Peggy Starr of Washington and Amy (John) Rambadt of Gravett, AR; 10 grandchildren; 11 great grandchildren; six siblings: Harriett Namminga of Springfield, SD, Clair Dyk of Sioux Falls, SD, Henrietta Star of Mitchell, SD, Gerald Dyk of Platte, SD, Carolyn (Fred) Hofman of Brookfield, WI and Billie (Sam) Childress of West Chicago, IL; two sisters-in-law: Cora Star of Washington and Alyce Bareman of Holland, MI; along with many nieces, nephews and friends.

He was preceded in death by: his parents, Harm and Nancy Dyk; three sisters-in-law: Candace Dyk, Pearl Dyk and Dorothy Zoerman; and five brothers-in-law: Jack Zoerman, Stan Bareman, Alvin Star, Don Star and Jake Namminga.

Memorials in Dick’s honor may be directed to: Gideons, PO Box 223, Platte, SD 57369.

Remembering you in our prayers today and in the future, Margie. What good memories Barb and I have of sharing times in Cary with you and Dick. The drive from Platte to Cary in your Cadillac with the silly mirror that kept moving down when we went in reverse and the dinners in Cary where you shared your wonderful cooking with us as host and hostess of the Cary Christian Center. We will cherish the memories of sharing a last name but no other known connections to past family memories. What a wonderful legacy the two of you are leaving, with many things, but especially your work in Mississippi. Thank you for your dedicated work there and for the many people’s lives that you touched.

My sympathies to the family. What a blesssing to know Dick is in heaven enjoying all of his wonderful Savior’s blessings. I felt privaged to work on the farm with Dick for 3 months one summer when I was 16 years old. I learned a lot from Dick. We worked hard and we ate real well!! I always tried to milk more cows than Dick did, but never could beat him. I remember it as a fun summer. God bless you all. Bob & Linda Westrate
