Obituary of Howard LeBlanc

It is with heavy hearts we announce the peaceful passing of Howard LeBlanc in the early hours of Sunday January 2, 2022 in Welland, Ontario. He will be forever loved by his adored wife of 55 years, Beverly (Briggs). Lovingly remembered by his children Tanya Christine LeBlanc (Dominic Collaco) and Kristopher Howard LeBlanc (Pamela Hendsbee) and always cherished by his grandchildren Ashley Preece and Spencer LeBlanc. Fond childhood memories will be shared by his brothers Camille and Larry.
Howard is predeceased by his parents Emile LeBlanc (1970) and Marguerite (Goguen 1994) as well as his siblings; Stella (2014), Peter (1993), Ovila "Blackie" (2017), Lee (2004), Arthur (1961), Joseph (1948), Donald (2015) and Jimmy (1992).

Howard came to Ontario from New Brunswick in 1959 in search of better opportunities. It was in Toronto where he met the love of his life, Beverly and they started their journey together. He was a warehouse manager with the same company for over 40 years before retiring. Howard enjoyed traveling to Mexico whenever he got the chance and was a fan of the Toronto Blue Jays (when they were winning, of course!)

In keeping with Howard's wishes, cremation has taken place. Arrangements have been entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905 354 2133) The family would like to express their sincere thanks to the nursing staff at Welland Exended Care (Woolcott Wing) for their care and compassion. If desired, donations in Howard's memory may be made to The Walker Family Cancer Centre.
