Curtis Joseph LeBlanc, beloved husband, brother, and friend, passed away on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, at the age of 82. Born on November 10, 1940, in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, Curtis was a dedicated individual who left an indelible mark on the lives of those who knew him.

Curtis grew up in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana.  After attending high school, he enlisted in the United States Army on June 6, 1959, proudly serving his country for eight years until his honorable discharge on May 7, 1967.
