It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Charles LeBlanc at the age of 72 on Thursday, July 5th. He died peacefully, surrounded by his loving family.
Fifty years ago, Charles married his teenage sweetheart, Rose-Marie (Sawyer). They had a great life together and two wonderful daughters, Gisèle LeBlanc and Chantal (Léger), whom he adored. Charles lived in Dieppe.
He was extremely proud of his two grandchildren, Adèle and Simon, and cherished every moment spent with them, and he never tired of sharing his favourite stories about them to whoever would listen.
He greatly admired his two sons-in-law, Michel Cormier and Serge Léger, and loved them as his own.
He loved to cook, travel, spend time at the cottage, share stories with friends and family, ride his motorcycle, hang with the coffee club, fish, and tinker in the workshop.
In addition to his immediate family, he is also survived by his sisters: Rosalie Falardeau, Ruth (Jean-Paul) Morel, Jeanette LeBlanc, Louise LeBlanc; his mother-in-law, Alma Sawyer; sister-in-law, Marie-May Collette; brother-in-law, Norman (Monette) Sawyer and several nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his parents: J. Régis and Edith (Léger); his brother, Pierre and his father-in-law, Dennis Sawyer.
The family wishes to express its gratitude for the care provided by the staff at the CHU Dumont Hospital Unit 4D, the Dr. Léon-Richard Oncology Centre and the Extra-Mural Blanche-Bourgeois.
In keeping with Charles’ wishes, there will be no funeral service.
Visitation will be held at the Chartersville Funeral Home, 363 Amirault Street, Dieppe (857-1901) on Friday, July 13th, 2018 from 2 to 5 pm.
Donations may be made to the Tree of Hope Foundation or a charity of the donor’s choice.
