Kenneth V. Lefrançois
(1945 – 2016)
2016 began with a sad note with the passing of DG1992-1993 Ken Lefrançois at age 70.  His continuous, active service to Rotary since his term in 92-93 was exemplary.
His most recent achievement, the formation of the most recent Rotary Action Group by RI, should be a focus in addition to the encouragement and chartering of so many clubs in our District.

Below is a communication from Patrick Lefrançois, Ken's son, regarding funeral and memorial arrangements:
I want to thank everyone for their kind words.  The outpouring of love and support has made it possible for us to enjoy, remember and celebrate my father's life.
