LECLERC, Jean Alfred Joseph
MMM, CD2
Passed away peacefully on December 11, 2015 in his 85th year, surrounded by his children and in the prayers of his loving wife Lorette Bourgeois-Leclerc , his partner of 60 years, a woman he loved and cherished to his very end. Loving Father to Paul, Marc, Pierre, Suzanne, Line (Bruce), and Phillippe (Lisa), and loving Grandfather to Marie-Elène, Erin, Austin, Marcus, Scott, Joel, Carter, Zakary and Matejko. Jean or "Johnny" to his many friends joined the Canadian Armed Forces in August 1950 serving across Canada and overseas. He achieved significant milestones throughout an illustrious career including being awarded the Order of Military Merit. His competence and a unique ability to appreciate the character of those personnel assigned to his care ensured assignments such as the first RCAF Sergeant Major for Communications Operator Training at the School of Communications and Electronics. He ended a 36 year career as the Communications Command Chief Warrant Officer, guiding the institutionalization of training objectives and standards for the communications branch. He served the RCMP for 10 years. Jean was an accomplished curler and enjoyed golf which he continued to play after his retirement. His greatest joy was spending time with his family. He has joined his beloved sons Paul and Pierre, and together they will watch over those of us left behind.
Always in our thoughts and forever
in our hearts, rest easy Dad, rest easy.

Mme Leclerc (Laurette), it is with sadness that I received the news from Jacques Landry about the passing away of your husband. I had the privilege of knowing John for many years (715 Comm Sqn in St-Hubert and CFCCHQ Ottawa). He is one of the people I looked up to as a mentor and a friend throughout my career. He was instrumental to my development as an NCM and later, an officer, by his values both as a military and a man of conviction. You and I also met a few times at social events. I wanted to offer you and your family my deepest sympathies in these difficult times.
