Michael Q. Dyer, 69 years old, passed away peacefully at Delnor Northwestern Hospital on Monday, December 9, surrounded by family and friends, after a valiant battle with cancer. Survived by beloved wife Connie, sons Wes, Wayne and Daniel, and siblings Jeff (Susan), Tim, Hilary (Janet), and Pat (Lorna). Michael was preceded in death by his parents, Quinlan Dyer and Lorraine Mary Dyer.

Private Cremation ceremony will be held, followed by a Spring 2020 Celebration of Life event. The celebration will be a reflection of how Michael lived his life – large and with love, humor, mischief and a sense of adventure. In his work life, he was well respected, a mentor to many, and highly accomplished.  His sons meant the world to him, and friendship was everything.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Homes for Endangered and Lost Pets (H.E.L.P., Inc.) at or The American Cancer Society.

Hilary Dyer from Austin, TX

"Mike was somewhat of an enigma to me growing up because he was my oldest brother and I always thought we were so different. The two of us book-ended a decade and we saw quite a lot of things from completely different points of view. Not to mention, the perpetual teasing of his little sister. It wasn't until our father became ill and Mike and I spent time together at his bedside that I realized that actually we have a lot in common. I came to love and appreciate Mike's calm, easy-going nature, his kindness towards others, his sense of humor, and ability to have fun. I know my parents were quite proud of him. I'm quite proud of him. And I will miss him greatly for the rest of my life."

Stephanie Kennedy London from Katy , TX
