DYMENT Theodore John - age 87 years, March 2, 2006, beloved husband of Iona Mary (nee Routley), loving father of Carolyn Ann Johnson (Jefferson), James Adam Dyment (Annamarie Seta), Michael John Dyment (Eleanor Herman) and Diane Mary Hayden (Daniel), survived by ten grandchildren Steven, Macaira, Nathaniel, Arielle, Nicholas, Samuel, Regan, Philip, Louie, and Rachel, three step-grandchildren Chris, Rick and Amanda, and two great-grandchildren Elizabeth and Elaina. Ted was born to Adam and Alice (Horwood) Dyment in Dilke, Saskatchewan, and later moved to Toronto and then to Montreal where he graduated from the Strathcona Academy in Outrement. He served with distinction during World War II in the Royal Canadian Navy aboard the HMCS Sioux, a Tribal Class destroyer. His career in advertising began upon his discharge from the RCN in 1945 with Dyment Limited, makers of promotional and display advertising. Ted and Iona were married in 1948 at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in the Town of Mount Royal, Quebec. Ted moved his family to Cincinnati, Ohio in 1962 where he managed the Cincinnati branch of the Dyment Company. Ted and Iona lived in Hyde Park, New Richmond, and Anderson Township. Since their retirement in 1990, the couple were actively on the move between Cincinnati, their children's homes around the US and Canada, their cottage on Lake Heney, Quebec and their snow bird home on Anna Maria Island, Florida. Ted's friends and family will remember his love of the outdoors, and his knowledge and brilliant mastery of everything in Nature's surroundings. Iona and the couple's children always loved and will dearly miss their husband and dad. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, March 7, 2006 at 11 A.M. at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, 2944 Erie Avenue (Hyde Park), Cincinnati, Ohio 45208. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Hospice of Cincinnati. T.P.  (The Cincinnati Enquirer 04 Mar 2006)
