Lester C. “Mike” Foor, 87, of Bedford, went home to be with the Lord Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019.

He was born on Sept. 7, 1932, in Breezewood, a son of the late Rev. Ellis Coy and Annie Mae (Wilkinson) Foor.

Miller; three great-grandchildren, Jordan Miller and wife, Jennifer; Sierra Foreman and Braedon Fritz; and special friend, Annie Davis.

He was preceded in death by a brother, Samuel P. “Billy” Foor, and two sisters, Edna E. Foor and E. Leone Foore.
