Texte de l'avis de décès:

Steven Martin Lefebvre, 64, Madison, died unexpectedly on March 31, 2005, while in Houston, Texas. He was born on Jan. 1, 1941, in Green Bay, Wis., to Edward and Jean (Martin) Lefebvre. He arrived minutes after midnight and was the New Year’s Baby. Steve grew up in De Pere, Wis., graduating from St. Francis Grade School and St. Norbert High School before entering the Norbertine Order. He was a serious and reflective young man. Like many of his generation, he ultimately left the Order to pursue a different path. His considerable talent found many homes, all within the paper industry. Through the years, he held leadership in several companies, among them Fort Howard; Little Rapids Corporation/Green Bay Tissue Mill and; most notably, as the first President in America for the Swedish-based company Duni Bila AB. Throughout his professional life, he recruited and mentored many young people. He was noted for his generosity of spirit, his intellect and his humor. He was a wonderful storyteller, especially when recollecting his boyhood and all the characters who passed through Kraemer’s Drug Store, where he worked in his youth.

He was a passenger on the last run of the historic 20th Century Limited and rode the entire routes of the Orient Express and the Trans-Siberian Railway. He loved Rome and twilight in Venice.
