Its with heavy hearts that we, the family, announce the sudden passing of our beloved father, brother and grandfather, Eugene Dye, age 79, on Tuesday, November 28, 2023, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.

Born in Glace Bay, Eugene was the son of the late Frederick and Bernadette (Bates) Dye.

Eugene was a retired steel worker who enjoyed spending quality time with his family and many lifelong friends. Eugene enjoyed his old country music with a good glass of whiskey, and he had a great passion for sports. Dad lived and enjoyed his life to the fullest. Dad will always have a special place in all of our hearts.

Eugene shared his own unique bond with his children and grandchildren. Family was everything to Dad.

Besides his parents, Eugene was predeceased by his loving wife, Diane (Pottie) Dye.

Eugene is survived by his children, Terry (Vanessa), Claudine (Billy) Rohrback, George (Wendy), Fred (Cara), and Blain; 10 grandchildren, Jeffrey, Kyle, Maryanne, Belisca, Ashley, Lucas, George, Emily, Noah, and Nathan; many great-grandchildren; as well as nieces, nephews and cousins that he loved and adored.  Eugene is also survived by his beloved sister, Alice (the late Paul Poirier); Dad had a special bond with his adopted sister, Audrey; also survived by his uncle, Ivan Bates.

Upon his request there will be no visitation or service for the late Eugene Dye.

Donations in memory of Eugene may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.
