Earl David LeFevre, 60, of Savannah, Georgia and husband of Caryn Ellzey LeFevre, passed away Thursday morning, May 19, 2022, at Candler Hospital.

Born in Fort Dix, New Jersey, he was the son of the late Earl William LeFevre and the late JoAnn Olliff LeFevre.

David enjoyed riding his Harley and was an active member of the Southern Cruisers Riding Club in Savannah for many years. He was also an avid drummer, and especially enjoyed playing and listening to rock music. David was an excellent cook, but above all else he loved spending time with his family and friends. A very involved father and grandfather, he will be deeply missed.
