Born November 4, 1952 in Jackson, Michigan, to the late John and Joy Dwyer passed away Saturday, June 16, 2018 at age 65.
Michael was raised at the boys’ home in Jackson, Michigan, and graduated from Jackson Northwest High School. He was then taken in as a foster child, in Ann Arbor, of the late Rosemary Jacob, whom he considered his mother. Mike was a longtime bartender at Post #7309, V.F.W. in Mason and was also a former construction worker. He was an avid coin collector, NASCAR collector, MSU fan, and enjoyed gardening and landscaping as well as sitting on his porch. However, first and foremost was his family, especially his two grandsons!

Olson, II; sister, Dawn Dwyer; sisters-in-law, Eileen Hunter, Doreen Dwyer, Carol Kempf, and Linda (Mike) Bartlett; brothers-in-law, Randy (Elly) Kempf and Mike Kempf along with many nieces, nephews and special friends including Jose and Ron.
