Robert L. LeFavour,83, of Carmel, IN departed this life Wednesday, March 15, 2017. He was born January 14, 1934 in Bryant, IN to the late J. Albert and Vera Ellen (Shoemaker) LeFavour. Robert grew up on his family's homestead and learned the value of a hard day's work on the farm at an early age. He earned his teaching degree from the University of Indianapolis and later earned his master's degree from Indiana University. Robert loved teaching, and passionately taught social studies and biology with Warren Township Schools for over 30 years.

Following his retirement, Robert enjoyed 15 years of driving school buses for Carmel Clay Schools. He loved interacting with his students in the classroom and on his bus. He took great pride in every endeavor and challenged his students to challenge themselves. Robert was a member of Southport Masonic Lodge #270, Blue Lodge and the Indianapolis Scottish Rite Cathedral. Robert was a longtime and dedicated member of Southport Presbyterian Church. Upon moving to Carmel in the early 1970's he and his wife Veda began attending St. Luke United Methodist Church, where he sang in the choir and volunteered for many functions. In his free time, Robert enjoyed classical music, collecting clocks, watches, and model cars.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Veda B. LeFavour. Robert is survived by his sisters, Judy (Douglas) Milligan and Phyllis (Jerry) Hummer; four nieces and nephews; special friend, Martha Hippensteel and a host of grateful students and friends.

Visitation for Robert will be from 11:00 am until time of services at 1:00 pm on Saturday, March 18th at Leppert Mortuary - Smith Carmel Chapel. Interment follows at Crown View Cemetery in Sheridan, IN. Memorial contributions are suggested in his memory to the Alzheimer's Association.

I had Bob in my water aerobics class for many years. He always had a smile on his face. Even though he never got the exercises right, he was devoted to exercising and was enthusiastic. When he was no longer able to come to the pool, I missed him in my class...he added some comic relief. A fine man who will be treasured in my memory.

Martha, I'm so sorry for your loss. You were so good to Bob! I am not sure if I will make the funeral, since my car will be going into the shop in the morning. But my thoughts and prayers are with you! Amy Brammer/Summer Trace
