Thomas M. LeFevre

Bay City, Michigan

Thomas passed away Monday, February 12, 2018 at his home, age 82. He was born August 27, 1935 in Bay City to the late Leo and Grace (Martin) LeFevre. He was raised on the west side and graduated from St. Maryís Catholic School in 1953. On April 25, 1959 Tom married the love of his life, Kathleen Byrne at St. Michaelís Catholic Church in Pinconning. In 2017 Tom and Kathy celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary. Tomís greatest joy in life was being Dad to his five children: Thomas (Lisa) LeFevre, Annette (Greg) Keenan, Andrea (Terry) Nerbonne, Michael (Dawn) LeFevre and Angela (Paul) Welke) LeFevre, three grandchildren: Meghan (Tom) Watson, Kaitlin (Matt) Lovely and Chelsea LeFevre as well as three step-grandchildren: Noel Nerbonne, Ryan (Casi) Buhl and Rod (Carli) Buhl, twin great grandsons, Bo and Rory Watson and step-great grandchildren: Paytn, Presley, Blake and Jackson Buhl. Tom is also survived by his beloved sister Barb Kelly and numerous nieces and nephews. Tom was predeceased by his parents: Leo and Grace LeFevre, an infant son, infant grandson and brothers in-law: Wayne Kelly, James Brissette, Virgil Byrne and Robert Gillman.

In 1990, Tom retired after 31 years at the Bay County Road Commission. He was active in the community including serving as an usher at Corpus Christi Parish and a member of the St. Vincent DePaul Society. Tom served in the US Army from 1954 to 1957 and was Honorably Discharged. He had many hobbies he enjoyed including crossword puzzles, reading, history, creating stained glass windows, tinkering on and collecting clocks of every shape, size and sound.

The Funeral Mass will be celebrated Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 10:00 am at Corpus Christi Parish-Holy Trinity Church. Fr. Robert Kelm and Fr. Kevin Kerbawy will celebrate Mass. Military Honors, under the auspices of the Bay County Veterans Council will be held immediately after Mass. Friends may call at the Squires Funeral Home on Friday from 2:00 to 8:00 pm and at church on Saturday after 9:00 am. A Parish Vigil Service for Tom will be held Friday at 7:00 pm at the funeral home. Private inurnment will be held at a later date at Calvary Cemetery. Those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider memorials to Corpus Christi Parish or St. Vincent DePaul Society.

Tomís family would like to thank McLaren Hospice nurses Barb, Marci and Michelle for their compassion and care they gave Tom and his family.
