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

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.

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!! ❤️

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.

Mike 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!
