Laurence Melvin Dick, aged 83 years of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan passed away peacefully at the Moose Jaw Union Hospital with his family by his side on Friday, December 7th, 2007.
Laurence was born on the family farm near Abernethy, Sask. on December 27th, 1923. He received his education in Abernethy and the U of S. Laurence worked on the family farm with his dad and brothers. During that time he met his soul-mate Vina, and they were married in Toronto at Danforth United Church on December 30th, 1948. Eventually they moved back to Saskatchewan where he was employed at the Sask Wheat Pool for 30 years, working at three elevators in Surbiton, Marquis and Boharm. While living in Marquis, Laurence was very involved in the Community Club, the United Church and the Curling Club. Marquis was a good community to raise their family. After retiring from the Wheat Pool, Laurence worked at Macleods Hardware Store. Laurence enjoyed golfing, traveling, the Saskatchewan Roughriders, gardening, meeting his pals at the Park Hotel and was a life time member of the Elks Lodge #7. His greatest enjoyment was his family and all the fun family gatherings that we had together.
