I was so sorry to hear about Dr. LeFevre's passing. He was my professor 8 years ago. His patience and kindness with me as I learned his course material made him my confidant throughout the rest of my education at U of A. His presense is already missed.

Dear Mrs. Lefevre,

Billye and I are heart broken to hear of Dr. LeFevre's passing. I shared lunch and spoke with him at a MBTC seminar in April 2001.

Joyce & Family-Dianne and I are so sorry to hear of Walt's passing. You will all be in our prayers. We have such fond memories of the times we spent together on Arkansas Registration Board meeting trips. Walt has always been one of my heros as a shining example of "how to be an Engineer". Walt was one of the most brilliant and forward thinking people I have ever known. May God bless and comfort you during this time. Sam & Dianne

Dear LeFevre family,

Candace and I are deeply sorry to learn of Walt's passing. He was a wonderful man in such a myriad of ways. I suppose that most will remember him in his role as educator, but I especially remember him and all his family for their involvement in the early days of the Arts Center of the Ozarks, then known as the Springdale Arts Center.

I was still at the University of Arkansas as a student when Duane Cline and
