Leo E. Crevier, 70, of Seneca, KS, died Friday afternoon, November 28, 2003, at St. Francis Hospital in Topeka, KS.

He was born May 22, 1933, in Seneca, the son of Leo L. and Edna G. Shockey Crevier. Leo attended Sts. Peter & Paul Schools and graduated from the high school in 1951. He moved to Sacramento, CA where he worked for AT&T as an installer of telephone cables. After a year in California, he returned to Seneca and planned to enlist in the U.S. Army. He was turned down due to a health problem and then worked for his dad as a blacksmith at the Crevier Welding Shop from 1952 to 1961.

In 1961 he went to work for AT&T installing underground cable from Fairview, KS to Kingman, AZ. In 1964 he returned to Seneca and worked again with his dad. He purchased the welding shop from his dad in 1975. Due to failing health with rheumatoid arthritis, he sold the shop in 1985. He was able to help his son with a cattle fencing business, making deliveries for several years.

On September 4, 1954, he married Charlene LaFond at St. Patrick’s Church at Corning. She survives of the home.

Leo owned a race car, which he raced at Beatrice and Nemaha County Speedway east of Seneca. Earlier, he built a cabin at Lake Nemaha. He enjoyed coyote hunting and fishing. Leo was an avid computer user, often surfing the Internet. He was a family man and always kept in close family contact.

He was a parishoner of Sts. Peter & Paul Church and a member for over 50 years of the Knights of Columbus #1769, both in Seneca.

Survivors besides his wife Charlene are four sons, Daniel of Spring Hill, KS, Kenneth of Seneca, and twins Terry of Rogersville, MO and Larry of Springfield, MO; two daughters, Marilyn Sibold of St. Benedict, and Carolyn Sue Haverkamp of Goff; 17 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by a sister, Rose M. “Rosie” Crevier on March 26, 2003.

Mass of Christian Burial will be 10:30 AM Monday at Sts. Peter & Paul Church in Seneca. Burial will be in the church cemetery. The rosary will be prayed at Lauer Funeral Home at 2 PM on Sunday, with a prayer service at 7 PM Sunday.
