Joseph Edward "Eddie" LeBlanc
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of J. Edward "Eddie" LeBlanc on October 10, 2021, at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital. Born on May 18, 1953, he was the son of Alyre and the late Cerita (Saulnier) LeBlanc.
Eddie was a proud member of the Lions Club, as well as a Boy Scouts and Cadet Leader. Early in Eddie’s career, he worked as a heavy equipment operator for Georgia Pacific. He later opened his own business called Ed’s Auto Parts in McAdam, NB, which he loved. In 2019, Eddie put his tools up at work, retired and found a love for traveling with his wife, Carol. He had a passion for camping, being in his RV and traveling to meet new people, driving his boat and motorcycle, cooking and carpentry. The remarkable deck that he built at home for Carol, shows his carpentry passion and talent. It comes to no surprise that Eddie was a "Jack of All Trades, Master of None" and loved talking to everyone. Most important of all though, Eddie loved spending time with all of his family, especially Carol and his children.
He will be greatly missed by his spouse Carol Anne (Caldwell) LeBlanc; children Krista and Trever LeBlanc; grandchildren Jasmine, Desmond, Hailey and Dustin LeBlanc; great grandchild Luke LeBlanc; adopted children Jesse and Samantha (Brandon) LeBlanc, and her children Patrick, Xavier, Zander, Theo and Isaac; father Alyre; sister Zena MacMaster (Glen); brothers-in-law Terry and Warren; sisters-in-law June, Gail, Laurie and Crystal; his cat Precious, as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.
In addition to his mother Cerita, Eddie was predeceased by his brother-in-law Danny.
Due to the current health restrictions, a service will be held at a later date. For those who wish, donations in Eddie’s memory may be made to Crohn’s and Colitis Canada or the McAdam Lions Club.
