Roger J. Lefeber, of Campbellsport, passed away on December 4, 2020 from having a case of Covid-19 at the age of 95 at Hope Health & Rehabilitation, where he had lived for the past three years.
He was born to Stephan and Cecelia Lefeber (nee Mullenbach) and grew up on their farm in St. Cloud. He attended school and the church in St. Joe near his home.

In the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, he learned how to fix televisions and radios by mail and worked at that part time. His hobbies were working on the yard and remodeling the house. The thing he enjoyed most was researching and compiling information on all our relation, basically our family tree. He could tell you the information off of the top of his head.
