Former Chair, Garry Dykhouse to be honored at A Celebration of Excellence
Gordon Stanley of Wyckoff was recently elected to serve as Chairman of the Christian Health Care Center (CHCC) Foundation. Mr. Stanley succeeds Garry Dykhouse, who retired this summer as board chair upon completion of his term, but who will continue to serve on the CHCC Foundation Board of Trustees. Mr. Stanley previously served as Vice Chair of the board and has served on the board since 2008. Gordon Stanley was the CEO of a filter manufacturing business and currently CEO of an internet security and web site business. He has been a member of CHCC’s Golf Committee and is a past chairman of Eastern Christian Children’s Retreat. Mr. Stanley is very active in the township of Wyckoff having served as mayor, fire chief, and chairman of the Bergen County Board of Education. He was also the former Chair of the Wyckoff Planning Board. Mr. Stanley is also a 37 year board member of a Christian International Mission called Operation Mobilization. Mr. Stanley and his wife have three adult children, five grandchildren, and have resided in Wyckoff for the past 50 years. They worship at Cornerstone Christian Church where Mr. Stanley has served as an Elder and Elder chair.
“I am honored to be elected as the new Chairman of the Foundation Board of Trustees of an organization that I am very passionate about, but I am also humbled to be following in the footsteps of Garry Dykhouse, “said Mr. Stanley. “Garry has been such a gifted visionary and provided outstanding leadership to Christian Health Care Center for so many years. It will be both a challenge and a pleasure to follow his legacy of service.”
Mr. Dykhouse’s term serving as the Chairman of the CHCC Foundation Board of Trustees comes to a close at a significant time. On Thursday, October 16, CHCC will be honoring Garry and Raeann Dykhouse and Kuiken Brothers Company Inc. for their legacy of service, leadership, and commitment to our communities. A Celebration of Excellence will be held at The Terrace at Biagio’s in Paramus.
“Garry and Raeann Dykhouse have devoted most of their lives to serving the community,” said Douglas A. Struyk, CPA, LNHA, CHCC President and CEO. “Giving back to others is very important to both of them.
Garry’s foresight in founding and establishing the Foundation in 1995 is just one example of his commitment, generosity, and leadership. I am confident that Gordon Stanley will also provide the guidance and leadership that Garry has brought to the table for many years. As Garry transitions from his role as Foundation Board Chair, we look forward to honoring him at our upcoming gala.”
