October 11, 2005

James Duttera LeFevre, a retired Sun circulation department supervisor and world traveler, died Sunday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center of injuries suffered in a fall a week earlier. The Westminster resident was 92.

Mr. LeFevre was born in Littlestown, Pa., the son of a teacher, and raised in Taneytown. He was a 1931 graduate of Taneytown High School and worked at the old Glenn L. Martin Co. plant in Middle River before beginning his career in the circulation department of the Baltimore Sun Co. in 1946.

Mr. LeFevre was an out-of-town circulation supervisor at his 1978 retirement.

He liked working in his flower and vegetable garden and planting trees on the grounds of his Westminster home. He also was an avid hunter and fisherman.

"He loved to travel and take cruises. We visited Scandinavia, Europe, Australia and attended a performance of the Passion play at Oberammergau" in Germany, said his wife of 65 years, the former Dorothy Harman, a retired Carroll County teacher.

Mr. LeFevre also liked to collect and refinish antique furniture, his wife said.

Services will be at 11 a.m. tomorrow at Myers-Durboraw Funeral Home, 91 Willis St., Westminster.

Mr. LeFevre is also survived by two daughters, Christine LeFevre of Lake Placid, N.Y., and Lynn M. Lindsay of Westminster; three grandchildren; and four great-grandsons.
