Metamora, Michigan ~ Dyke Howard Hanson, age 68, of Metamora, Michigan passed away on Wednesday, May 11, 2022. Dyke was born July 29, 1953, in Peoria, Illinois to the late
Gerald and Alice Hanson.
Dyke was a very talented man. Among his many talents was his love for woodworking, being a handyman, working on his Ford Fairlane, telling jokes, and brewing his own beer. In his free time, Dyke could be found outside riding his motorcycle, boating on Lake Lapeer, water skiing, or scuba diving with a group of his buddies. Dyke spent most of his career working for EDS and then later retired from Eli Lilly. While Dyke was a very active man, God and his family always came first. Dyke never met a stranger and loved staying busy, helping others, and attending his kids' and grandkids' activities.
Dyke is survived by his wife, Sharon; son, Jeffrey Dyke (Sarah) Hanson; daughter, Andrea Kay (Brad) Smith; and grandchildren: Ryder, Reagan, and River. He was preceded in death by his parents, Gerald and Alice Hanson; brother, Curt Hanson; and sister, Gayle Fidler.
