He was born July 27, 1957 in Dade County, FL to the late Edwin James and Marilyn Marie Boshoven Kaye. He was preceded in death by his sister, Jane Soloman. Dr. Kaye practiced as a family physician for more than 30 years and devoted his life to helping others "from womb to tomb." In addition to the countless patients for which he provided care, he spent much of his free time assisting those in need. He provided endless compassion, support and humor to his family, friends and patients; assisting those suffering from drug addiction and making house calls to elderly patients and his Amish neighbors. He adored working with the Oakridge High School Football Team as the team physician, and had fond memories of his time with the coaches, players and members of the community. He was a proud veteran of the U.S. Navy and Michigan State University alumni. When he wasn't watching MSU football and basketball, Dr. Kaye enjoyed spending time with his family, skiing, snowmobiling, riding his Harley and being outdoors. In addition to all his generous and significant work, he will most be remembered for his energetic personality and for bringing humor and light-heartedness to every situation. Those left to cherish his memory include his loving wife of 8 years, Kyle Ferski Kaye; three daughters, Sarah Whalen and husband Tim, Danielle Oster and husband Reece; and Isabel Johnson; one sister, Margo Barr and husband Dan; one brother, Mike Kaye and wife Dawn; one granddaughter Adelaide Whalen; three nieces, four nephews, twelve great-nieces and nephews; father-in-law, Michael Ferski; mother-in-law Lynn Willcutt and husband Roger; his beloved frat brothers and numerous friends.
