It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear father Ernest Vincent LeBlanc92, of Lower Wedgeport, Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia. Ernest passed away peacefully on April 7, 2021, at Yarmouth Regional Hospital. Born on May 24, 1928, Ernest was the son of the late Eloi and Monique (Pothier) LeBlanc of Wedgeport. He grew up in Lower Wedgeport and started working as a fisherman in his younger years. He then worked on Don Raymond’s yacht, the Nellie D, as an engineer for 5 to 6 years. Ernest and Iva moved to Ontario where they lived in Toronto, Oak Ridges and finally Caledon where they settled and raised six children for the next 30 yrs.  He worked in the plastic industry for the rest of his working life in Ontario. They returned to their home province of Nova Scotia in retirement. Ernest loved star gazing and astronomy, was a handyman, a wood craftsman, an avid Blue Jays fan, enjoyed playing crib, skating on the pond, as well as many card nights with his siblings and up until his eyes failed him, he loved to read. He never tired of learning something new.  Ernest was a loving and kind father, Grandpere and Great Grandpere and will be greatly missed. He is survived by children Larry (Debbie) LeBlanc (NS), Giselle Holman (ON), Rick LeBlanc (NS), Kathy (Ron) Wiegard (ON), Paula (Bruce) Reardon(ON) and Denise (David Pesce) Rescorl (ON), and a sister Blanche Doucet (NS). Also, grandchildren Kimberley (Nick), Jennifer (Ryan), Mark (Lisa), Megan (Nicholas), Charlotte (Tyler), Brody, Joseph (Diana), Christopher (Amy), Victoria (Spencer) and great grandchildren Emelia, Luke, Mya, Samantha, Madison, Anthony, Nathan and Cameron. Aside from his parents Ernest was predeceased by his wife Iva (Hubbard) LeBlanc and by many siblings. He will also be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews. The family would like to extend our gratitude to the staff at Yarmouth Regional Hospital on 3 East for their care of our father in his final days. 

Arrangements have been entrusted to H.M. Huskilson’s Funeral Home and Crematorium, Yarmouth.

A service will be held at a later date.

Remembering Ernest: A steadfast man who worked hard, had a good sense of humor and loved his family. After retirement he was never bored always finding something of interest to do. Carpenter, repair person and things in the garden keep him busy. In later years after his wife passed away he capably lived on his own keeping in touch with family and friends.
He was a welcoming host and a great chef which has made for many nice memories for his family. Always loved… we miss you Ernie.
Heinz and Jean Wiegard.

Condolence from Brian & Terry Lynn Pellerin on April 13th, 2021 9:19 pm

We send to your our deepest condolences.
Your father was a very kind and gentle soul. Always checking out things to see how they worked.
I remember him walking into your home with his lunch box in hand and a smile on his face.
If you had a sleep over on a Saturday night.. you were going to church the next morning, if you were catholic or not! Both of us experienced this… lol
He was a very punctual man. . Soo many memories of your Dad & your Mom, flood us both.
We did have the pleasure of visiting him after he moved down East. Living the maritime life..
Our hearts are sadden
RIP: Mr Leblanc

Love Brian ( P-nuts ) & Terry Lynn ( Hunter ) Pellerin

Kathy, Ron and Brody,
Our deepest condolences to you and your family.. He lived a long and full life but it is still difficult to loses your dad.

I remember many years ago when my father passed away I received the following message: remember me with laughter and smiles, for if you remember me only with tears then I have left you nothing at all. From what I heard and have read here today, your dad had a great sense of humour so you have many, happy memories.

Condolence from Dan Hayes on April 18th, 2021 9:07 am

Condolences to the family. Remember Ernie as a good and dedicated person. Always a smile. Dan Hayes
