September 5, 2020 Ahmeek

Emil E. Dyni, 75, a resident of Senter Street in Ahmeek passed away at his home on Saturday morningSeptember 5, 2020.

He was born on March 31, 1945 in Laurium, a son of the late Emil and Marie (Kipina) Dyni.

He graduated from Calumet High School with the class of 1963 and later attended Northern Michigan University.

Emil was a veteran having served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War.

On August 17, 1974 he was united in marriage to the former Bonnie Hendrickson at Faith Lutheran Church in Calumet.

Emil was employed at the Keweenaw County Road Commission for 28 years retiring in 2003.

Emil was an avid outdoorsman, hunting and fishing in the Keweenaw since he was a child. He enjoyed hunting camp with long time hunting buddies Bob Meyers, Paul Mohar, Bob Orent, and the late Joe Galinis. His favorite hunting companion was his wife, Bonnie.

Every fall Emil spent many hours gathering acorns and apples to feed the deer during the winter. He would then go several times a week to Eagle River to feed the deer with deer feed, topped off with acorns and apples. He had one deer that would wait for him to hand feed her apples. She was there for many winters. Emil was a true sportsman.

Preceding him in death were his parents and a sister, Tammy Lang.

3 grandchildren: Ethan, Colin and Alannah

Hi Bonnie;
I just got this information about Emil passing away. I am sorry to hear that.
We were in the 981st Military Police Company together and were Dog Handlers in Vietnam.
I was born in Trimountain in October 1945 so Emil and I had things in common even though I had been raised in Arizona since 1952.
I always liked Emil and he was a good, clean cut person.
I don't have any pictures of him. When we got to Vietnam I was in the Central Highlands at Camp Radcliff near An Khe, across from Pleiku. There were only about 15 of us at our base protecting everything. I don't know where Emil ended up in Vietnam.
Thank the Lord we made it home.
Did he get exposed to Agent Orange? I did and I am terminal now, maybe one year left to live until I see my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who died on the cross for me.
I only made it to two reunions and never saw him in 2009 or 2019.
Lord be with you!

Emil and his whole family were part of my Eagle River family so many years ago. A kind, witty sweet child and man. He remembered us, as we will always remember him. Love and sympathy especially to Bonnie, Dody and Candy. Emil. sent me a photo back in the 70s...
