Honouring Louis LeBlanc
On June 27th, Joe Hudacin, Chair of the Bath Canada Day Committee presented a volunteer recognition award to Joyce LeBlance in honour of her late husband, Louis contributions to Canada Day over many years.
Louis was a volunteer firefighter with Loyalist Township for thirty years and in that capacity an active volunteer with Canada Day in Bath. He drove the Bath tub in the parade for twenty-five years. According to Joyce, the first year Louis didn’t drive the tub, there was no end of trouble with it. He had the touch. Bath children love the Firemen’s Foam, and Louis loved being a part of that every year.
His volunteer efforts went well beyond Canada Day. A quiet, unassuming man, Louis was always ready to help when and where he saw a need. He coached baseball and hockey when his boys were young, he volunteered in many areas at St John’s Anglican Church, served on Parish Council and helped with the gardens at the Fairfield-Gutzeit House and the West Bridge. Louis passed away in February 2015 leaving behind family, friends and a community he loved and who loved him.
