Obituary for Robert E. LeFort

Robert Elmer LeFort passed away on Monday, April 2, 2018 at Rooks County Health Center in Plainville, Kansas at the age of 82. He was born on March 10, 1936 in Garden City, Kansas to the late Reme Joseph and Ruby Nola (Dunham) LeFort. He graduated from Woodston High School in Woodston, Kansas with the Class of 1954. On December 27, 1954 he was united in marriage to Elenore Gayle Morrissey at St. Thomas Catholic Church in Stockton, Kansas. They were blessed with five children, Janey, Donovan, Brad, Stacey, and Bobby.

Robert enjoyed working and being outside. He loved farming, especially harvesting wheat, and in his younger days he liked hunting and fishing. He was always an avid bowler and enjoyed square dancing with Elenore whenever they had the opportunity. He also liked shooting a game of pool with friends, and even had his own honorary chair at the local V.F.W.

Along with farm work, Robert spent many years owning and operating the Sears store in Stockton, then went to work for Stockton Correctional Facility before he retired. After retirement, he drove a bus and did janitorial work at the school because he enjoyed being around the kids. He was member of St. Thomas Catholic Church and was a Third Degree, Knights of Columbus member.

Robert is survived by his children Janey Denton and husband David of Stockton, Donovan LeFort and wife Cheryl of Newton, Robert Bradley “Brad” LeFort of Topeka, Stacey Rempe and husband William “Bill” of Smith Center, and Bobby LeFort and wife Diane of Grantville; grandchildren Bobby Joe and Jessica LeFort, Rebecca Grey, Sandra LeFort, Tabitha and Mike Owen, Rachel and Ian Snyder, Chauntel and David Parkison, Travis Rempe, James LeFort, Terra Rempe, Jenna LeFort, Olivia LeFort, Cooper LeFort, Luke LeFort, and Chase LeFort; and great-grandchildren Sienna, Pierce, Delaney, Saj, Kitlynn, Dakota, Mida, Roger, Haylee, Shae, Cruz, Adrianna, Alianna, Isaiah, Tre, Gavin, Kyleigh, Elenore, Eloise, and Erik.
