  1. In all honesty, I have never met a more jubilant, faith filled, welcoming and loving person in my entire life. Uncle Mike always made everyone feel loved and you just felt blessed to be in his wonderful company. His concern for everyone around him was genuine and his intelligent advice in so many areas made you so grateful to have him in your life. He was one in a gazillion ! my life and the lives of my family have been enRiched to infinity and beyond by having the love of my uncle Mike. He was the most pleasant man anyone could ever imagine. We should all be inspired by his Faith, love and charity and to love one and other just as he did. So many different things will remind me of uncle Mike as life goes on ΓÇ£who has it better than us∩┐╜ ? You made us all appreciate our blessings…? Your Polish blessings before our holiday meals will live on always ….. you have enriched our lives more than words can express.. Rest In Peace dearest Uncle and thank you for being the WONDERFUL person you will always be remembered for. You were a true disciple of our Lord and a clear example of how he wanted us all to live our lives. We all love and respect you so much uncle Mike! You will be sorely, sorely missed.

  2. I will miss his happy smile and that laugh that made you laugh too. My heart is broken for all his family. RIP Mikey. Patty Sumner

  3. The best guy in the world!! Always had a smile on his face. When we were little kids, he always gave us ice cream money from his metal box from his diner days. You will be so missed!! ��

  4. Mike Lefko was my uncle. My earliest memories are of him cooking for holiday gatherings and visiting his Diners in Commack and Huntington. He was jovial, generous and kind hearted. He made us feel special. Always happy when I called, he spoke proudly about his grandchildren Ryan, Ben, Zach and Melanie. For over sixty years, he loved my aunt Kay and adored my cousins Michael, Kathy and Gail. I will always remember his cheerful smile and trademark question “Who has it better than us?� My life was so much better because he was my uncle. I know he loved me and I loved him. Rest in Peace Uncle Mike.

  5. Charlie WeizeneckerMike Lefko was always positive and upbeat. He always greeted you with that big smile and a loud booming laugh. Always at church and always willing to get the work at the church done. God Bless Mike Lefko!

  6. You couldn’t have wanted a more exemplary parishioner and simply a good Christian man. I remember him as the person most likely to welcome you to Resurrection parish when you walked in for the first time. He was easy to love and he spread a lot of love in our parish at a time when it was desperately needed. His earliest years and his latest years were certainly not easy; he bore his own sufferings patiently and remained faithful and faith-filled. My condolences to Kay and the family. I’ll be remembering Mike at Liturgy here in New Jersey. Eternal memory! Vi∩┐╜naja jemu pamjat’!

  7. Michael and our close friendship began in the U.S. Air Force in 1951/1952 as we flew combat missions with the 17th Bomb Wing, 34th Bomb Squadron in Korea. Sadly, we went our separate ways in the service, but our friendship endured over the years despite the distance between us. When not flying, Mike taught me to play chess. When power failed after dark, out came his candles and we continued playing. Where did he get the candles? The Priest knew. The Chapel. What a sense of humor he always had. You knew cooking was his favorite subject. He always talked about the diners. Flight personnel were permitted ‘fresh ‘ eggs; not powdered eggs and we just returned from a late night mission, the KP dished out a ladle of powdered eggs to Mike. My young ears heard a lot of new words. The KP never knew what hit him verbally. While our distance kept us apart, but not our friendship. My wife and I did have an opportunity to visit Mike and Kathrine many years ago when we went to Bermuda Islands for a weeks vacation. We stayed with them and enjoyed their hospitality.All of us have lost a dear friend and we will miss him. I couldn’t have had a better friend. Bless You Michael, Robert E. Reynolds A Friend, Bob Reynolds

  8. Mike, it was a true pleasure to be your personal librarian for the past two years. Your warmth and friendliness always brought a smile to my face and made the days we spoke shine brighter. I will be constantly reminded of your kind spirit whenever I glance at one of your notes that I have pinned up at my desk. Thank you for sharing your light. Rest in peace. <3
