BERTIN LEBLANC

1951-2021

BERTIN LEBLANC

Following a lengthy illness, Bertin LeBlanc passed away peacefully Sunday, November 7th, 2021, at his home in Dieppe, surrounded by lots of love and warmth. Born in Campbellton NB, on the 17th of May 1951, he was the son of late Xavier LeBlanc and late Bérénice (née Michaud).

He will be tremendously missed by his wife, his one true love, Raymonde Boulay, along with his two daughters, his precious pearls, Amélie and Maryse. He leaves behind his sisters, Dianne and Micheline (Fernando) and his brother Denis (Marjolaine), his brothers and sisters in-law; Michel (Céleste), Gisèle (Pierre), François (Nicole) and Nathalie (Perry) as well as his nieces and nephews that he loved dearly.

Bertin worked as a locomotive engineer for Canadian National Railway for 35 years. Throughout his life, his greatest passions were undoubtedly salmon fishing and woodworking. Whether it was casting a line on the water or standing in front of his wood lathe, he was always so happy! His creativity and many talents allowed him to envision and achieve wonderful projects, of which he was very proud. A big-heart man, loving, warm and always willing to lend a hand, Bertin was greatly loved and cherished by not only his family, but also by all who had the chance to know him. It was often said that he was a true gentleman. Fun-loving, playful, and often teasing those he loved most, he was always game for just about anything! As his great-niece Alexandra said: "He is in our hearts now…"

We would like to thank the health personnel from the cardiology department at the CHU Dumont Hospital. Your presence and loving care provided Bertin with the best quality of life possible for almost 11 years. We also wish to sincerely thank the Extra-Mural Program’s Blanche Bourgeois Unit for the excellent palliative care allowing him to stay him.

The Family will receive condolences at the Chartersville Funeral Home in Dieppe on Friday November 12th, 2021, from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. At this time, there will be no service. At the request of the family, donations can be made to the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre’s Cardiology Department or to the Atlantic Salmon Federation.
