In Loving Memory of

Sidney Moyer Dyer Jr.

July 14, 1932- Kansas City, Missouri

February 12, 2022- Denver, Colorado

Sidney Moyer Dyer, Jr., Son of Sidney Moyer Dyer, Sr. and Carmen Dyer, as born July 14, 1932, in Kansas City, Missouri, where he grew up with his beloved older sisters, Roberta and Emma. After Graduating from De La Salle Military Academy, he enlisted in the United States Navy on April 23, 1951. Sidney served his country aboard many ships, with the USS Windham Bay T-CVE-92 being his most significant duty assignment. Sidney received his Honorable Discharge from the US Navy on March 25, 1555. He returned to Kansas City, Missouri, where he met Barbara Stubbs while bowling on a Catholic Youth Organization Bowling League. Sidney and Barbara were married May 4, 1957, in Raytown, Missouri. To this blessed union, five children were born- Peter Michael, Pamela Marie, Camilla Ann, Janene Louise, and Allan Joseph. In 1966 Sid & Barb moved to Littleton, Colorado, where they raised their family. Sid worked for Martin Marietta, Honeywell, Gretchen’s, Westinghouse, and B Dyer & Associates during their years in Colorado. Sid and Barb were active members of St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Centennial, Colorado. He was a member of the original planning committee that worked to establish St. Thomas More Parish. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus, and served as one of the presidents of the Men’s Association in the 1970’s. Sid and Barb moved to Georgia in 1984, where Sid went to work for a longtime friend at Courtesy Honda in Morrow, Georgia. After Sid retired, he and Barb moved to Starbuck, Minnesota. While living in Starbuck, Sid became a lifetime member of the VFW. In 2012, Sid and Barb moved back to their beloved Colorado. Outside of his work, Sid was a talented artist and loved to write poetry. He also created a one-of-a-kind driftwood menagerie that he displayed in many shows, museums, malls, schools, and corporations. Sid donated his unique twenty piece driftwood collection to Hempker Park Zoo in Albany, MN, for their educational programs.

Sid and Barb were blessed to be married for 62 years before Barb passed away. Sid’s devotion and loving care for her was an inspiration to all who knew them. Sid peacefully passed away on February 12, 2022, in the loving arms of his son, Allan. During the last week of Sid’s life, he enjoyed visiting with family, friends, his special caregivers at Montage Heights Senior Living, and his caregivers from Compassionate Care Hospice. His “bucke tlist” consisted of giving thanks to all those who helped him and Barb any way, especially in their last years.

Sid will be greatly missed, yet always remembered, in the hearts of those who loved him, especially children, Camilla (Garrett) Dalhoff, New London, MN, Janene (John) Grey, Brooks, GA, Allan (Andrea) Dyer, Castle Pines, CO, sixteen grandchildren, and fourteen great-grandchildren. Also mourning his loss are his sister-in-law, Sr. Mary Francine Stubbs, SCL (Leavenworth, KS), brother-in-law Wayne Naylor, (Lees Summit, MO), many nieces, nephews, and all those who knew him. Sidney was preceded in death by his parents, Sidney Dyer, Sr. and Carmen Dyer, his sisters, Roberta McNamara and Emma Blackburn, his stillborn son, Peter Michael Dyer, his daughter Pamela Marie Pecosky, and her unborn daughter, Aubrey Genevieve Pecosky.

May Sid’s love of God, his devotion to Our Blessed Mother, Mary, his love of neighbor, kindness, humor, and generosity be an inspiration to us all.
