He was born in Micajah, West Virginia on February 23, 1943, the son of the late Paul and Helen Burrell. The first in his family to graduate from high school, Lenford emphasized the importance of education to his children. He was a hard worker who possessed many skills and operated multiple successful businesses throughout his lifetime. He loved time spent at the station and store and missed it often during his retirement. A car enthusiast and avid outdoorsman, Lenford had a strong sense of values for work and his family. His greatest joy was being surrounded by family and friends, especially enjoying time with his grandchildren. He always offered kind words to others, never knowing a stranger. He will be remembered for his kindness, laughter, and easygoing attitude that welcomed others. Lenford was dedicated to God. He was saved and later baptized on March 25, 2012 at Bud Baptist Church by pastor, Tom Lusk.
