Mike LeFan was born February 20, 1946 in San Antonio, TX. He died March 20, 2013 in Temple, TX. He will be remembered for reasons not trivial because he was a 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 could type 40 words a minute on his computer. He had one of the finest vocabularies of any brilliant mind you would ever encounter, and wrote four books.
As ham radio operator, WA5EQQ, he was the fastest operator in our area using Morse code. He was a member and a net control for The 7290 Traffic Net.
He is survived by his father and brother; by 2 nieces, 1 nephew, and three great-nephews.
Recognition, honors, and acclaim have been earned by this accomplished Christian. How happy the angels must have been to welcome him into the Paradise of God.
