Obituary: Msg. Frederick L. LeBlanc

1517

BOSSIER CITY – Msg. Frederick L. LeBlanc, Soldier, Husband, Father, Grandfather, Teacher, and Knight. Fred served his country over 26 years as a soldier in the United States Army. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus and served as a Color Guard in the Fourth Degree Assembly. Fred and Brother Knights served God and Country, with loyalty, honor, and patriotism to America, and devotion to the church, for the greater glory of God.

He is a LSU-S Liberal Arts graduate, fall 1993. He taught children in the Johnny Gray Jones Youth Shelter for 13 years. Fred’s life has been that of service and he will be missed. He always had a “good story” to tell, and he enjoyed embellishing the details to give his story a little more “zip”. Like the time he went hunting with Daniel Boone.

Fred leaves behind his wife of 52 years, Marilyn. His children and their spouses are; son, David, wife Pauline of Steelville, Missouri; daughter, Mary Woodcock, husband Kevin of Sweetwater, Tennessee; daughter, Debora Taylor, husband James of Bossier City, Louisiana; and daughter, Rebecca LeBlanc of Bossier City, Louisiana. Grandchildren are Mercedes Shelby, Madalyn Taylor, Joshua LeBlanc, Jacob Woodcock, Jessica Woodcock and Alexis LeBlanc.

Services for Fred will be held at 1:00 p.m., Wednesday, November 4, 2015, at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Shreveport, LA. Interment will follow in Hill Crest Memorial Park. Visitation will be held at Hill Crest Memorial Funeral Home from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday evening followed by the Rosary at 6 p.m.
