Earl or "Pop", as most knew him, was a life-long resident of Cecilia. At a young age, he met and married the love of his life, Bessie, and devoted his life to his loving wife and their four children. His passions were many, but few stand out as much as his love of trains and collecting guns. You could often find him working in his yard, drinking coffee with friends at the barber shop, or building something in his shop. For 40 years, he was a dedicated Bridgetender for Southern Pacific Railroad. The last several years were spent traveling, having a good meal, laughing with friends and spending time with his family. Words can't express how deeply he will be missed by many.
He is survived by his wife of 73 years, Bessie S. LeBlanc; sons, Richard LeBlanc (Donna) and Glynn LeBlanc (Judy); daughter, Phyllis Denny (Bob); grandchildren, Melanie LeBlanc, Jonathan LeBlanc, Terrianne LeBlanc, Nick LeBlanc (Courtney), Sara Boudreaux (Scott), Lauren Meyers (Marc), Dray Gunter (Bethany) and Jennifer Vicknair; and numerous great-grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his son, Terry LeBlanc; parents, Clarence LeBlanc and Aline Berard LeBlanc; and sister, Nell Duhon.
Pallbearers will be Glynn LeBlanc, Bob Denny, Marc Meyers, Richard LeBlanc, Jonathan LeBlanc and Nick LeBlanc.
Pellerin Funeral Home (337-332-2111) is in charge of arrangements.
