Born on April 14, 1943 in Washington, DC to the late Joseph and Doris Dye, Michael graduated from High Point High School in Adelphi and continued his studies at the University of Maryland.

He enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle, boating and, most recently, restoring a 1962 corvette. Michael is survived by his companion and wife of the past 25 years, Beth Ann Dye; two sons, Michael Collin Dye of Linthicum Heights, MD and Garrett Dye of Edgewater, MD; and two sisters, Linda Hayes of Edgewater and Suzanne Glorioso of Clearwater, FL.
