LEGANT -  On Wednesday, June 14, 2017, Rev. Harold Legant was joined with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, whom he had dedicated his life to serving.  The Lord called a strong prayer warrior and a wonderful man of God to his eternal home. Harold Legant, age 89, Tim, Steve (Laura), and Thea’s dad, is now reunited with his wife, Elaine, in the presence of our King.

Harold was born August 20, 1927 to Frederick and Ruth (Tenny) Legant.  In 1949, Harold received his Master’s Degree in Bible Education from Columbia Bible College, SC and then completed his seminary studies at Fuller Theological Seminary, receiving his ordination in 1952.  As a U.S. Army Chaplin, he faithfully served his country during the Korean War from January 1953 to February 1956. 

During Harold’s 64 years of ministry, he served as a pastor with six churches throughout Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Illinois.  With a huge heart for missions, Harold also spent time serving as the Director of the Illinois Bible Mission.  After "retiring," Harold continued to touch many lives as he traveled to visit hospitals and homes, spreading God's love. 

He will be deeply missed by his children, Tim, Steve (Laura), and Thea; grandchildren, Kyle Legant, Austin Legant, Joshua Legant, Rose Legant, Chloe Labush, and Nathaniel Labush; great-granddaughter, Blake Legant; and his sister, Marjorie Sutton. 

Preceding Harold are his three brothers, George, Gordon, and Ralph.
