Mike or “Coach Mike” as he was commonly known touched the lives of many. Mike truly embodied service over self, wanting to help anywhere he could and refusing to take any credit for it. Mike was a graduate of Fair Park High School, Class of 1963, and a three time graduate of Louisiana Tech University, where he earned his doctorate. Mike was an ardent supporter of Louisiana Tech University, supporting both their academic and athletic programs.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, John Thomas Dailey, Jr.

Mike is survived by the love of his life, his lovely bride of 37 years, Elizabeth Dailey; four children, Chad Dailey, Steve Dailey, Rebecca Miller and Sarah Bates and five grandchildren, Ashlyn Alack and Ryan, Olivia, Kinsley and William Dailey.

Honoring Mike as pallbearers will be Ed Chapman, Quintin Johnson, Ryan Dailey, Matthew Nelson, Michael Jones, Dr. David Googe, Charles Morton and Joe Dailey.
