Edward “Shane” Dye

Edward “Shane” Dye, age 53, of Logan, passed away on June 3, 2024, at Fairfield Medical Center following heart complications. 

Ed was born September 27, 1970, and grew up in Greendale, Ohio. He was an avid Michigan Wolverines football fan who supported them loud and proudly. On a Saturday, you’d find him several beers deep in his garage, snuggling his beloved cats watching sports. He was quite the comedian and kept his family entertained with his pranks and constant antics. He was a franchise owner of industrial company Winzer, and also sold for companies Group 31 Supply and Share Corp in which he excelled in sales for several years, earning many top salesman awards. Ed enjoyed reminiscing about his baseball/softball days to any and every one that would listen, sometimes total strangers like the DirectTV guy who was just trying to do his job and skedaddle. He also coached his kids in baseball/softball for several years. More than anything, Ed loved and treasured his family, especially his grandsons, who were his whole world. He made sure his family was always taken care of, especially his wife, Joy, of 31 years. Ed also loved his English Bulldog, Maizie Blue, although he always claimed she was “the worst Christmas present ever.” Ed made tons of friends over the years through life and through work, who will all miss him dearly. 

Ed is survived by his wife, Joy Dye of Logan; daughters, Kassi (Ryan) Anders and Gracie (Steven Merk) Dye of Logan; stepdaughter, Kaleigh Sikora of Wheeling, WV; grandsons, whom he spoiled rotten, Kale Riggs (his best buddy), Kai Anders (his tornado), and Brayden Anders of Logan; stepfather, Jim Tippie of Gahanna; siblings, Sara Dye of Lancaster and Tim Dye of Logan; special best friend, Robbie Polley of Reynoldsburg; and several nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. 

Ed is proceeded in death by his father, Edward V. Dye; mother, Astrid “Maggie” Tippie; In-laws, Joseph and Joyce Johnson; and his son, Gage Dye, who went to heaven just 8 months and 1 day prior to Ed. Ed being reunited with Gage has given the family a little peace during this difficult time. 

Private graveside services for close family will be held, where he will be buried, at Fairview Cemetery, Rockbridge, Ohio, next to Gage. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Arrangements are by the Heinlein-Brown Funeral Home Logan, Ohio.
