Brian Van Dyk Obituary

For us, too sudden and unexpected, The Lord our God took to himself our son, brother, brother-in-law and uncle, Brian Timothy Van Dyk.

Brian was born on February 18, 1986, in Picture Butte, Alberta, the fourth child of Berend (Ben) & Fija (Fay) Van Dijk. He graduated grade 12 from Coaldale Christian School. He worked some jobs and then went on to earn an English degree and later a Bachelor of Teaching degree from the University of Lethbridge.

He was accepted as a teacher at Coaldale Christian School, where he taught English. He worked there until his passing. He loved his students and helped them as much as he could to do well on their assignments. He loved hanging out with his friends to play games.

He will be greatly missed by his brothers and sisters and nephews and nieces: Abbotsford, B.C.: Lewis & Meaghan Van Dyk, Charlotte, Orson; Edmonton, Alberta: Maria & Murray Vrieselaar, Jolene, Marco, Bellamy and Janna; Coaldale, Alberta: niece Fallon Van Dyk; Coaldale, Alberta: Colin Sebastian & Colleen Van Dyk, Colten, Talia, Caleb, Aiden, Elijah and Samuel; Coaldale, Alberta: Marley Clark, Hilton, Lorne and Archer.

We are comforted by the Word of God: Romans 8:38-39:

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
