In 1872 he settled in Rutland and had since been a resident of this city. Since 1910 Mr. Lefevre had been janitor of the Watkins avenue school. He was a member of the Canado-American club.
Mr. Lefevre is survived by three sons, Arthur and Lewis of Rutland, and John of Brattleboro, two daughters, Mrs. Joseph Greeno of Wallingford and Mrs. Angie Yando of Fitchburg, Mass., and by a sister, Mrs. Angeline LeClair of Keeseville, N.Y.
