NORTHBOROUGH – Robert J. Lefevre, 79, of Northborough died Friday March 25, 2022 at St. Vincent Hospital.

He was the husband of Mary B. (LeBlanc) Lefevre for the past 58 years.

Bob was an avid Red Sox and Bruins fan. He loved his family very much and enjoyed camping in their RV with them. He was set in his ways and things needed to be done his way, which was always the right way. Bob would help anyone before he helped himself. Bob enjoyed working. He would come home from work,  only to get called back to work, including in  the middle of the night. Bob also traveled for work to Texas , Ohio and  France for a convention.

He was playing miniature golf in Anaheim California with his wife and Darrin.  Darrin hit his ball and it started to roll down the hill so Bob  tried to stop it and Darrin tried to stop it at the same time with his golf club . Needless to say Darrin hit Bob with his club.
