His death news was announced by his wife on September 9 through Mylon LeFevre’s official Facebook account with a statement:
“Last night, my devoted, courageous, and powerful spouse took hold of eternal life. I never once heard him hesitate in his excellent confession of faith for the last years of this severe, never-ending battle.
He boldly declares, “JESUS IS MY HEALER,” Several witnesses may attest to this in every broadcast and church service. He battled for his faith right up until his last breath. He completed the race. He didn’t lose hope.”
Thoughts and Condolences to his family, friends, and community in this trying time. LeFevre’s funeral and memorial service details have not been made public yet.
Who Was Mylon LeFevre?
Lefevre was born into a pioneering Southern gospel family in Gulfport, Mississippi, on October 6, 1944. He was a Gospel Music Hall of Fame member and ministered, taught, and performed while touring the country.
He occasionally appeared on television networks, including TBN, Daystar, and Victory Channel. He wrote his debut song, “Without Him,” while he was 17 years old and serving in the Army, where he was paid $84 monthly.
After receiving his Army discharge, LeFevre joined the Stamps Quartet (1966–1968). LeFevre’s debut solo album, New Found Joy, was released by Skylite Records in 1964.
Mylon was a distinctive and adored character in the Christian music community. He was a gifted musician and singer and a passionate preacher well-known for his unshakeable faith.
According to his wife’s statement, Mylon was particularly enthusiastic about winning the soul winner’s crown, as we talked about heaven throughout the years. He had the honor of introducing over 250,000 young people to Jesus with his modern Christian music band, Mylon and Broken Heart.
His greatest joy, however, was imparting the Word of God, mainly through the broadcast, On the Road to Freedom. LeFevre treasured all the years he spent in music ministry and the numerous lives he touched with his songs.
LeFevre began to focus more and more on sharing the gospel after his heart attack. About 75 churches were served by him and his wife each year. Eagle Mountain International Church in Newark, Texas, is the couple’s primary place of worship.
Additionally, he had given speeches at motorcycle rallies, chapel services for NASCAR owners and drivers, and NFL and NBA chapel services, as well as in Mexico, Russia, Australia, Canada, the Philippines, and the Cayman Islands.
