Mike Lefeber was called home to the Lord on June 18, 2022. Mike was born to Elmer and Margaret (Lawrence) Lefeber on October 28, 1951. Mike graduated from St. Mary’s Grade School and L P Goodrich High School. In his younger years Mike taught himself to play the guitar—there wasn’t any Bob Dylan tune that Mike couldn’t play!
In the early 1980’s Mike moved to Texas. In December of 1996 Mike graduated from the University of Texas with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration. In the late 1990’s Mike moved to California where he met the “Love of his Life” Lydia. Mike and Lydia shared a “Love like no other.” Sadly, Lydia passed away in 2015 and Mike was left with a broken heart.
Mike encountered some medical issues and thankfully returned home to Wisconsin where his brothers and sisters could take care of him.
With his friendly smile and witty humor—Mike was a friend to everyone he met.
Those he leaves behind are his siblings John (June) Lefeber of Morganton, NC, Jane Buechel of Fond du Lac, George Lefeber of Waupun, David (special friend Mary Lopno) of Fond du Lac, Ellie (Raymond) Hartman of Plymouth, Norman Lefeber of Fond du Lac, Joan (John) Wessing of Lomira, Jackie (Tom) Konkol of Spicer, MN, and Kathy Lefeber of Fond du Lac; sister-in-law Janet Lefeber of Oshkosh; as well as many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brother Roger Lefeber; sister Linda Lefeber; stepmother Beatrice Lefeber; and brother-in-law Herman Buechel.
Mike will be sadly missed by his siblings who were Blessed to have the chance to say good-bye as he neared his passing.
