Norman Lionel LeBlanc passed away peacefully at home, in Smithsburg, MD, on April 9, 2022 with his family by his side. He was born January 14,1938, the son of Lionel and Margaret (Saulnier) LeBlanc in St. Mary’s Canada. He proudly came to the U.S. in 1959 and became a citizen. He was serving in the United States Army when he met and married the love of his life, Marie Aline Lorraine (Lavoie) LeBlanc on June 8, 1963. They would have celebrated their 59th anniversary in just a few short months. After active duty, Norman continued in the Reserves and made his career as a carpenter, living in Connecticut until retiring to South Carolina in 2000. He was a proud lifetime member of the NRA and also the VFW of Summerton, SC. Norm was the oldest of 14 children with 9 sisters and 4 brothers. He is predeceased by a brother, two sisters, and his first grand-daughter, Valerie Magnan. He will be missed greatly by his family and friends, especially his daughters, Sheila Howarth and Monique Cuevas and husband Luis Cuevas, his grandchildren Gerard and Robert Magnan, Vanesa Moser, Alex Cuevas, and Jaimie Cuevas and six great grandchildren. Norman loved to fish, hunt, snow mobile, woodwork, but most of all he loved to play music. He played many instruments, but his favorite was guitar. He used his talents to make so many happy listening to him play and sing country and bluegrass classics. He was happiest when performing and while living in SC he was part of a group “The Four Guys”. They would visit nursing homes and play for the residents and spread joy with their music to so many. He spent the last four years living in MD with his daughter and family and continued sharing his music until he no longer could. While in MD, he was a member of St. Anne’s Church in Hagerstown. There will be a Celebration of Life scheduled at a later date. The family would like to express our sincere thanks for the help and care given by Hospice of Washington County.
