Obituary of Aubrey LeBlanc

It is with great sadness that the family of Aubrey George LeBlanc announce his passing which occurred on Friday, March 22, 2024, at the Dr. V. A. Snow Centre, Hampton, NB. Born in Botsford Portage, NB on July 1, 1941, he was the son of the late Joe and Doris (Brine) LeBlanc.

Aubrey was one of the good guys and throughout his life he was always there to help anyone he could. Aubrey left home at an early age and spent several years working at different jobs until he started with Saint John City Transit as a bus driver. He enjoyed this job and always had funny stories to tell of some of the events that happened on his bus routes.

After many years a SJCT, Aubrey went on to work at the Saint John Airport as a heavy equipment operator. Aubrey worked there until retirement having worked his way to shift supervisor. Another place with many stories.

As a younger man, Aubrey was involved in several sports. He was a recreation league hockey player and an avid hockey fan of the Saint John City hockey teams over the years. For the last 10-15 years, he held season tickets for the Sea Dogs Team.

One of Aubrey’s biggest loves in life, other than his wife Joan, was golf. At an early age, he got hooked on golf and this remained a passion of his until his passing. Most of his golfing was at the Hampton Golf Course which he truly loved. He held many positions on the golf club board and was a great ambassador for the club. Aubrey played golf every chance he got and in retirement, he and Joan wintered in Myrtle Beach to play golf.

Aubrey also enjoyed music throughout his life. He did not like to be in the spotlight but would instead play along. He was well-known for making up silly songs for a laugh. For the last ten years or so he spent several weeks each spring with his brothers in Florida playing golf and playing music.

Aubrey’s biggest love in life was his wife, Joan. They met on the golf course and spent most of their life together playing golf. He loved her deeply and she returned the love. They made a good life together and enjoyed it living on the Bonney Road in Hampton, NB.

“Aubrey, rest well knowing that you led a good life and will be fondly remembered by all who knew you.”

Aubrey is survived by his wife of 42 years, Joan (White) LeBlanc; brothers: Gordon and Lorna LeBlanc of Moncton, NB, Wayne and Mary LeBlanc of Goose Bay Happy Valley, NL and Alvin and Lynda LeBlanc of Edmonton, AB; sister-in-law Winnie LeBlanc of Cap-Pelé, NB as well as several nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, Aubrey was predeceased by his brother Emery LeBlanc.
