Dr. Dykes was Senior Deacon of Temple Lodge in 1910, Senior Warden in 1919 and Worshipful Master of Temple Lodge, No. 33 in 1920.
He moved to Vancouver in 1922.
Here is some biographical information on Dr. Watson Dykes. We will add more information as we uncover it.
“Dykes – Many in Cowichan will regret to hear of the passing of Dr. Watson Dykes in Vancouver on Friday. Born in Nanaimo 74 years ago, he came here in 1904 and left for Vancouver 18 years later. For many years he was associated with the school board there and, although later retired, was still called on for private practice.
He was one of the old school of country doctors. At one time he was the only medical man in this whole district. He seldom had the chance to get away. He had one of the first cars here, supplanting his old buggy. His home was on Ingram Street. From time to time he has visited Duncan, meeting old friends and hosts of grown up babies of the long ago.
His wife (nee Miss Randall) died here in 1916. Their son, Randall, served in the navy during the last war and is now in Nova Scotia. There are two grandchildren, two brothers, Joseph, Nanaimo, and Jack, Powell River; two sisters, Mrs. M. Wilkinson, Nanaimo, and Mrs. R. Clarke, Seattle. His widow (the former Miss Mabel Fentiman) is at 5962 Cypress Street, Vancouver.
