Michael E. Mefford, 63, of Fairborn, OH, passed away unexpectedly on April 6, 2021. He was preceded in death by his father, Jesse L. Mefford, his mother, Joan F. Davis, his oldest brother, Ronald L. Mefford and a nephew, Raymond S. Mefford. Mike (Dad, Poppy) was a proud, loving father and grandfather whose life revolved around his family. He loved shopping for, planting and tending flowers, a past time he shared with several of his children. He also loved visiting his children, sitting around a fire, playing corn hole and sharing memories and stories full of laughter. He wasn’t materialistic and he knew what was important…to love and be loved. He spent as much time as possible with his family. He is known by all who love him as a kind-hearted man, who didn’t have a mean bone in his body. His laughter and sense of humor will be sorely missed by all…his passing has left a huge hole that can never be filled. Our hearts are breaking, we are devastated and we are wondering how we will live without seeing his face and his smile, hearing his voice and just knowing he was there whenever we needed him. Mike is survived by his children Jessica M. Mefford, Matthew J. Mefford, Sara D. Mefford, M. Wade Mefford and Katherine A. Mefford, as well as his step-children Kelly (Tom) Mader, Lora Mefford, Scott (Shi) Mefford and Heather (Dan) Bell. Mike is also survived by a brother, Richard R. Mefford, and ex-wife Brenda D. Henderson. Grandchildren: Haley (Brandon Wagoner) Mefford, Aubrie and Gwen Miller-Mefford, Madalyn Cohen, Paisley Mefford, Harper Mefford, Akira Mefford, Cammron Mefford, Britny Mader, Cole Mader, Daniel Howard, Cody Mefford, Garett Mefford, Sierra Mefford, Kaleb Mefford, Gavin Gibbins-Mefford, Great-grandchildren: Easton and Autumn Mefford- Wagoner, Mateo Mader, Grayson and Elliza Mefford, Leanna and Aiden Estepp, Aryanna Adkins, Nieces and nephews: Angela Auckerman, Richard R. and Amberlyn Mefford, Jane and Jesi Mefford Friends who are family: Joseph Pate, Artie ‘Chester’ Baker, Stephanie Pittman He also leaves behind several pets, who he loved like his children.

I remember when every time we had a fire how you were there, laughing, smiling, and just being the silly you. I remember you used to watch me when mom went to work, and you treated me like one of your kids. I remember how every time we came walking in to katys, you would act like you were slamming the doors on us, and you would laugh. I remember when I was a kid, and you used to give me $15 dollars allowances each month, and told me not to tell the other kids. I miss everything about you, I always wanted to spend time with you, I never wanted this to happen. I love you, we love you. You will forever be missed and forever be in all of ours hearts. I hope you're here with us, and I hope you're still smiling, watching as Easton and Autumn misbehave, laughing at the stresses they cause me. I hope to see you again one day. Rest in Heaven
