Life Legacy


Mike LeFan was born February 20, 1946 in San Antonio, Texas. He died March 20, 2013. He will be remembered for reasons not trivial because he was special and an uncommon man. He was in a class all by himself. “Victim of polio when he was eight years old”, yet he was so superior to most that the word “victim” seems out of place. Granted, his nights were spent in an iron lung and through the day he used a portable respirator. He did not walk or dress himself and his arms and legs were immovable. The same with his right leg but the left foot was different – he could move his toes. With them he held a pencil, paint brush and telegraph key. He was the fastest operator in our area using Morse code. He typed 40 words a minute on his computer. He had one of the finest vocabularies of any brilliant mind you would ever encounter. He wrote four books.

Recognition, honors, and acclaim have been earned by this accomplished Christian.

He is survived by his father, James LeFan; a brother, Kevin LeFan; by nieces, Jaima Ferguson and Marla Beimer; nephew Ryan Beimer; and three great nephews, Caleb, Bryce and Grant Ferguson.

How happy the angels must have been to welcome him into the Paradise of God.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the “Arms of Hope” children’s home, 7065 Love, Quinlan TX 75474.

A memorial service will be 2:00 PM Friday at Western Hills Church of Christ with Minister Joe Baisden officiating. Visitation will follow the service.
