Millis – Mr. Robert J. LeBlanc, of Millis, formerly of Waltham, died on Monday, April 6, 2020 at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge. He was 87.

Bob was born in Waltham on December 5, 1932, a son of Nova Scotia natives Moise and Mary (Murphy) LeBlanc. He was a graduate of Saint Mary's High School in Waltham and served with the United States Army during the Korean War.

He worked for years as a self-employed carpenter and builder and in later years worked with his son, Craig, at Allen Harbor Marine Service in Harwich Port. From a tribute that Craig posted on the marina's website . . . "His official title was "Facility Manager" but he was so much more. In his 87 years he had learned countless skills working in construction and serving in the Army that allowed to him be able to solve a multitude of problems that came up at the marina, both with the buildings and the dock system. He treated the business like it was his own and I could always count on him to be there to help with anything, day or night. Any fellow employee would tell you that Bob would be the first one to offer a helping hand or advice on a project. My father loved being around boats and fishing. He should have worked at a marina his whole life. He will be truly irreplaceable."

Bob was also a member of the French-American Victory Club in Waltham.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sisters, Esther Krinsky and Jeanne Burley.

He leaves his wife, Bernadette A. (Connor) LeBlanc; his children, Susan Griffith (Joseph) of Amesbury, Robert LeBlanc, Jr. (Louann) of Sandwich, Bruce LeBlanc (Tomoko Okada) of Tacoma, Washington, Joyce Kramer of Sandwich, and Craig LeBlanc (Vicki) of South Yarmouth; his step-children, Justin and Christopher Desrosiers, both of Millis; his grandchildren, David LeBlanc, Robert LeBlanc, Juliann LeBlanc, Roxanne Wilson (Zachary), Stephannie LeBlanc, Christian Griffith, Brandon Kramer, Katelyn Kramer, Bryson LeBlanc and Rylan LeBlanc; his siblings, Rita Guzzi of West Newton, Kenneth LeBlanc of Allston, James LeBlanc of Plymouth, and Karen LeBlanc of Yarmouth and many nieces, nephews and their families.

As result of the ongoing health crisis in the world and our community Bob's funeral services will be private.
