Memorable Manitobans: George E. Dyck (1939-2008)

Educator, community activist.

Born at Sand Beach, Saskatchewan on 9 December 1939, he moved to Manitoba at the age of 10. Shortly thereafter an accident left him in a wheelchair. He attended the University of Manitoba graduating with a BSc in 1964. He was a graduate of the first class of Nuclear Medicine Technologists from Manitoba in 1967, and obtained a MSc degree in 1980. He was an instructor in Nuclear Medicine at the Health Sciences Centre then at Red River College, retiring in 1997. During his career he was an active member of the Manitoba Association of Radiological Technologists and received the Bill Doern Service Award in 1987.

After retirement, he served on numerous boards and committees, including Wheelchair Sports, Canadian Paraplegic Association, Handi-Transit Advisory Committee, ILRC Kite Festival, 1010 Sinclair Housing, Manitoba Social Services Appeal Board, and the Canadian Centre on Disability Studies.

He died at Winnipeg on 27 June 2008.
