Henry (Bud) Dyk went to his heavenly home on Monday, February 6, 2017.  He was born February 24, 1920, to Peter and Alje (Vander Woude) Dyk.   He grew up in the Gallatin Valley and attended Manhattan Christian School for nine years.

Henry married Louise Nell Droge in Manhattan on February 11, 1947, (almost 70 years ago). They were blessed with three children.  He was a dairy farmer for 31 years and named in Wataview Farm.  He sold the dairy in 1979 and formed a partnership with his son, Ron, to grow seed potatoes and other crops.  He had enjoyed helping out on the farm even in his 80’s.  He loved spending time driving the tractor meditating on the goodness and mercy of God.   

He was a charter member of Bethel Christian Reformed Church.  He was one of the original building committee members who were instrumental in getting the church built.  He served as an elder in Bethel Church for 12 years.  Being a life-long member of this church was very special to him.
