Lefebvre was a seasoned health care professional with extensive operational experience in the health care industry within both profit and nonprofit sectors. He retired from his position as the Group Vice President for Quorum Health Resources, the world’s largest organization that manages and operates hospitals. Lefebvre was Secretary of the FSH Society Board of Directors from 1991-2007. As an FSHD patient, he was interested in expediting a solution to the FSHD problem. Mr. Lefebvre resided in Hudson, Massachusetts, with his wife, Linda.
“Dick had fine business acumen, was a prudent financial manager, and possessed a very dry sense of humor that dovetailed nicely with that of his fellow Board member, the late Bob Smith,” said Daniel Perez, CEO and CSO of the FSH Society. “Dick was a founding board member of the FSH Society, and the first Secretary of the Corporation. His support and presence on the board was key to helping the Society grow in its early years. He was ever present at the support group meetings in Massachusetts in the 1990’s and 2000’s. I am saddened by his loss and will miss him.”
