In Loving Memory
October 19, 1950 – April 3, 2016
Charles “Pewee” Troy Dyche, Jr. passed away peacefully in his sleep after a long battle of lung cancer that he managed with grace and courage, on April 3, 2016 in Fairhope, AL. He was a loving and devoted husband and father. Charles was a native of Greenville, MS but resided in Daphne, AL for the last 8 years. He is an Army Vet who served and protected his country in the Vietman War. He had a tremendous love for fishing, hunting, and sports. He enjoyed all of these things with his family and friends. Anyone who knew Charles knew he never met a stranger, was a genuine great man, and would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. He always lived by and instilled in his children the saying, “Treat the janitor with the same respect as the CEO.” Charles will always be remembered for his contagious smile, huge heart, big bear hugs, infectious laugh, and generous spirit. He was one of a kind and missed dearly by all that knew him.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Charles Troy Dyche, Sr. and Frances Jeanette Dyche and his brother, Michael Wayne Dyche.
He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Yvonne Dyche; children, Kourtney (Josh) Sligh of Mendenhall, MS, Shawn Moose of Greenville, MS, Ereka Dyche, Brittany (JR) Lamb, Chad Dyche and Caleb Dyche all of Daphne; grandkids, Christian Webber, Blayne and Kayden Moose, Maddie Sligh, Cohen Dyche, Easton Jones, and Harper Lamb; siblings, Sharon (Mike) Pennock, Brenda Dyche, and Scottie (Jocelyn) Suddoth. He leaves behind many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, and friends.
The family of Charles Dyche acknowledges with sincere thanks and appreciation, the many prayers, visits, meals, calls, cards, flowers, and many acts of kindness shown during our bereavement. Thank you to our community for their overwhelming support throughout Charles’s illness. Thanks to his loving and devoted aid, Jackie, who was there to the very end. May God continue to bless you all.
