Michael Bynum Ware

Mr. Michael Bynum Ware, 39, of Calhoun, Georgia, departed this life Thursday, June 28, 2018 from injuries sustained in an accident.
He was born in Cobb County on June 27, 1979, the son of James Graydon Ware Jr and Gwen Ford Ware. He was preceded in death by grandfather, Bynum Ford; and grandparents, Hessie and Graydon Ware Sr.
Michael was a well known lifetime member of the Gordon County community and was also a member of the Gordon Central High School graduating Class of 1998. He was a member at Belmont Baptist Church in Calhoun. Michael loved his children and family with all of his heart. He loved to fish, loved drag racing, and just generally loved the outdoors and cars overall. For the last several years he had worked for the United States Postal Service where he served in Calhoun, Dalton, Cleveland Tennessee, Rossville, East Ridge, and at the time of his death he was the Postmaster at the Post Office in Summerville, Georgia. Michael just genuinely loved people and was always there to help those in need. He was an avid motorcyclist, and was a member of the local Hellions Motorcycle Club. Not only do they ride and stick together as a brotherhood, but their main mission is charitable work. Michael was a true Parrot Head and a diehard Jimmy Buffet fan. He and his sister shared this same love and attended concerts together. Michael loved to wheel and deal with anyone. He had a penetrating and contagious smile and was loved dearly by his friends and family.
Michael is survived by his children, Emory Tanner Ware and Emma Marie Ware; his parents, James Ware Jr. and Gwen Ware; his sister and brother-in-law, Marie and Zack Taylor all of Calhoun, Georgia; his grand-mother, Agnes Bynum of Cuthbert, Georgia; several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, dear friends, his beloved brotherhood in the local Hellions Motorcycle Club, and his very special Postal Service family.
