Michael Kenneth Sahm, passed away on Tuesday, May 25th, 2021. He is survived by his wife, Dawn Sahm (nee Mink); children, Ashley Sahm, Heather (Corey) Whitney, and Megan Sahm; parents, Toby and the late Lee Sahm; siblings, Andrea Zettel and Steven (Mindy) Sahm; aunt, Audrey Dagold and the late Don Dagold; nieces and nephews, Taylor Zettel, Lyndsay Zettel, Danielle Zettel, Leah Sahm, and Seth Sahm; cousins, Gail and Murray Green, Cindi and Michael Pollack, Amy and Brad Glaser, and Jodi and Clark Lare.

Michael lost a valiant battle with lung cancer early this morning. An accomplished mechanical engineer who specialized in practical integrated energy systems, he held over 42 US patents, and a PhD in mechanical engineering from Stanford university, an MSE from Arizona State, and a BS in mechanical engineering from University of Maryland. He was a kind, funny and gentle man who adored his wife Dawn and his three girls. He burst with pride kvelling about his loving and supportive wife Dawn, and his accomplished and brilliant daughters, Ashley, Heather and new son-in-law Corey, and Megan. As a little boy he was known as a real rascal, and some of his escapades included pushing a button on an escalator to see what would happen, shooting a homemade rocket from his backyard that flew over a neighbors roof, and stuffing a raw potato into an exhaust pipe. At the end of his life he sent thank you cards, balloons and candy to family members to thank them for their get well cards. Michael will be missed forever, by all. In lieu of flowers, cards and donations may be sent to his mother, Toby Sahm, 2600 Gage Ct, Apt D, Baltimore, MD 21209. There will be a private family gathering only.

Michael is the second classmate of mine from Pimlico Junior High School I have lost this week. I am very sorry to hear of his passing, but blown away by his accomplishments as catalogued in his obituary. I did not know Michael well, but I remember him as quiet with a dry sense of humor. He seemed like a really cool guy and I am sorry I did not get to know him better. My condolences to his family and loved ones, and may his memory be for a blessing.

Toby and family,
My heart is breaking for your family! Michael was my first serious boyfriend and I have so many wonderful memories of him. He was smart, kind, and had a wicked sense of humor. One of the most valuable bits of information that I learned from Michael is when coming to an entrance to get on the Beltway, the first entrance usually goes to the right and the second one usually goes to the left. I can not tell you have many times that information helped me get to where I was going! Please know that I will keep your family in my thoughts and may his memory be a blessing to his family.

As my oldest boy cousin ( in a family of girls)- I was in awe of his daring and antics and just he was the coolest- larger than life. He grew up to have a family of girls and I know he loved and was so proud of his daughters. He was a kind, gentle, proud man, accomplished in life and in love. He will be greatly missed.

Dear Toby and family,

I was so very sorry to hear of your loss. Michael was one of my closest friends when we were both teenagers. He was an extraordinary human being - kind, compassionate, so fun to be with. I loved him dearly and had always hoped to see him again. My heart goes out to you all. May his memory be a blessing.
