Thomas Nathan Dye, age 72, passed away Tuesday, April 1, 2014, after a very brief battle with pancreatic cancer. Originally from Tennille, he was the son of Ralph and Susie Dye, both deceased. The "Tennille Dye's" were both strong in their Christian faith, and faithful friends and citizens. Tom carried that solid foundation onto his own family and business life.  
Tom spent many of his adult years in the Dunwoody, Duluth and Cumming areas of Atlanta. He was an active member of Dunwoody Baptist Church and helped church-plant Peachtree Corners Baptist Church. 
As an entrepreneur, Tom brought the first quick lube business to Atlanta with DyeCo Fastlube, and finished the rest of his career in commercial real estate with his company, EBC Office Centers. After retirement, he remained active in the community and volunteered with the North American Mission Board as a driver for the Disaster Relief Team that brings help to areas all over the country in need after a disaster strikes. Locally, he drove a truck for the "There's Hope for the Hungry" ministry that brings spiritual and physical nourishment to the needy closer to home, and was an active member of First Redeemer Church.
Most importantly, he was a full-time husband, father and grandfather to his beloved family. His wife of almost 50 years, Jan Dye of Cumming; daughter and son-in-law, Kris and Ted King; their children, Connor, Lacy and Evan of Cumming; son and daughter-in-law, Mike and Tracy Dye; and their children Hunter and Madison of Duluth, survive him.
Funeral services will be held Sunday, April 6, at 2 p.m. at First Redeemer Church in Cumming, with the Rev. Mike Schmid officiating. A reception with fellowship to honor the life of this beloved man will immediately follow.
