Michael Bane, beloved son, brother, nephew, and cousin passed from this world into the hands of the Lord on Friday, November 9.

Michael was a member of the Knights of Columbus, Council 799 as well as an Eagle Scout. He is survived by his parents, John and Deborah Nickerson Bane of Dallas, and his brother Jonathan. If you were fortunate enough to know Michael, you know he had a positive influence on eveyone he met. He fought so hard, and was so brave. Visitation will be at 6:00 Monday at St. Patrick Catholic Church, followed by Recitation of the Holy Rosary at 7:00. Celebration of Life Mass will be at St. Patrick's at 10:00 AM Tuesday, November 13, 2012 with Rev. Josef Vollmer-Koenig as celebrant. Interment will be at Restland Memorial Park. Reception to follow at the KC Lodge, 10110 Shoreview Road, Dallas 75238. "Though we can never bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower, we will grieve not, but rather find strength in what remains behind."

I worked with Michael. He was thoughtful, witty and a gentleman. Just the other night he spoke about how much he loved spending Christmas with his family. He will be missed. May god comfort you during this time of sadness.
