Michael DiBacco, 46, of Reston Virginia, died at home on March 27, 2014. He was surrounded by family and friends after enduring a seven month battle with pancreatic cancer.
Born October 19, 1967 in Asheville, NC, his family moved to Herndon, VA in 1980. After graduation from Herndon High School in 1986 Michael attended Embry Riddle University, where he was a member of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity, Wesleyan University, and Old Dominion University.
Michael pursued a career in Information Technology. He was a loyal employee for many years with NEC and more recently with Dell. Perhaps his greatest joy was family. The devoted husband of 17 years to Shannon (Pinkman) DiBacco, they raised three children - Cameron (16), Brayden (11), and Ireland (10).
A collector of music and a student of innovation, Michael’s primary interest was his family. Always attentive, Michael was a constant presence, assistant coach, supporter, and biggest fan of his children’s various sports and art interests.
He is also survived by his parents Mike and Janet DiBacco of Ashburn; sister April Neach and her family of Herndon; and the Pinkman family of Reston and Annandale.
A celebration of Michael’s life will be held on Friday May 2, 5-10pm at The Lake Anne Plaza, Reston Community Center. Please wear green or show your Redskin pride.
