Moncton – Charles E. LeBlanc died at the Villa du Repos on Friday morning, December 24, 2021, at the age of 94. Born March 5, 1927 in Lynn Massachusetts, he was the son of the late Charles J. and Alice (Robichaud) LeBlanc. He was predeceased on August 1, 2013 by his beloved wife Winnifred (Winnie Caissie) LeBlanc. He was a devoted husband and father, a loving grandfather and great-grandfather. Without a doubt, his family was his joie de vivre. He was also passionate about gardening, golf as well as crib and other card games. Since his youth, he has loved spending his summers in Aldouane, near Richibucto.
He will be greatly missed by his six children, Donald (Janet) LeBlanc, Danny (Claudette) LeBlanc, Joanne (Paul) Mazerolle, Annette (Roméo Duguay) LeBlanc, Louise (Ronald) Cormier, Monique (Brian) Vautour, his beloved 16 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister Yvette (late Ray) Steeves and his 2 brothers Rhéal (Jeannita) LeBlanc and Valmont (Freda) LeBlanc as well as many nieces and nephews. Besides his wife and his parents, he was predeceased by 3 brothers: Yvon, Oscar, Roger; and 2 sisters: Lorraine and Gloria.
His professional career spanned over 40 years, including with GM in Oshawa, Manager of the Beauséjour Curling Club, then finally at Alcool NB. He was very involved in his community having volunteered on many numerous committees and having followed in his father’s footsteps as municipal councilor for the City of Dieppe in the 1960s.
The family would like to thank the staff on unit 800 at Villa du Repos for the good care given to Charles over the past 2+ years.
Due to the pandemic, there will be no visitations at the funeral home and a private service for immediate family will be held. A service for larger family and friends will be held later this summer if possible.
