Frank Junior Lefevers, 74, of Green Ridge, passed away at his home on Wednesday, September 29, 2021. On July 25, 1947, he was born in Hughesville, MO, the son of Frank James and Margie (Blasengy) Lefevers, who preceded him in death.

Frank served his country honorably in the United States Army from 1971 until 1974 during the Vietnam War. Frank was Ditzfeld Transfer's "Master Mechanic" he enjoyed the trucks, but you knew you might be in the "Dog House" if a wrench flew past your head. He was a man of few words but led by his actions. You didn't enter the house without passing by Frank in his chair. While in his chair, he enjoyed the Chiefs, the Cardinals, or a good reality show. When you left his home, you didn't leave without hugging Frank or tickling his feet.

I am so glad that I got to know Frank. Garry and I shared many happy moments with Helen and him. Frank was a good man who loved his wife and family. I know Helen and family will dearly miss him. May God give all of you strength during this sad time.
I worked with Frank when I worked in shipping at Waterloo and when I worked at Ditzfeld. I highly respected Frank. His had a great personality. I hadn't seen him for a couple of years but am sure he will be greatly misses by those whose lives he still touched. Sincere condolences
So very sorry, Jennifer and Cory. Prayers for you and your families.
