Steven J. LeBlanc, who was born on July 3, 1946 in Napoleonville, Louisiana, sadly passed away in his sleep into the loving arms of his wife of 42 years, Fadua Roedan LeBlanc, on October 14, 2012 at the age of 66. He died of kidney and heart failure while resting in his second home in the Dominican Republic. Steve was preceded in death by his parents, Lee LeBlanc and Yvonne Boudreaux LeBlanc, and his brother Lionel. He is survived by his brothers, Donald and Charles, and his sister, Mary; as well as wife, Fadua, his two children, Michael and Cher, and his two grandchildren, Brett and Sean. First and foremost, Steve was a Christian. He went to church religiously and was a proud member of the Knights of Columbus in Friendswood, Texas. He always had a "work hard – play hard" attitude. He was a mentor to many and he said what was on his mind, for better or worse. He was a master at using "tough love", but for those who really knew him, he was always more loving than tough – and he had a heart of gold. Steve was able to enjoy 10 years of retirement, where he did some consulting work, but he spent most of his time "helping people" in a very anonymous fashion. Steve's wishes were respected and his viewing, funeral and burial were all done at a rapid pace in the Dominican Republic, just 2 weeks after he returned from his home in Friendswood, Texas. He always told people that he never really wanted a sad funeral, he wanted a party where there was live music and family and friends talking about "the good times." In respect of his final wishes, a website has been created as a platform for friends and family to communicate and properly plan this event.
