Born in Crowley, La in 1939 to Henry & Vivian Clement LeBlanc. Henry was a wonderful son, husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He was also a very active and prestigious member of the community. This kind and loving man had many accomplishments throughout his lifetime. He was a graduate of Jennings High School Class of 1956. Henry served his country proudly in the United States Army during the Vietnam War from 1961 - 1964. After his military service, he attended NLSC college of Pharmacy and graduated in 1967. He practiced pharmacy in Natchitoches and Leesville from 1967 - 1972 where he managed Gibson Pharmacy in Leesville. Henry moved back to Jennings in 1972 to work for his family insurance business, Hebert & LeBlanc, Inc. until his retirement in 2007. He was the first person in Jeff Davis Parish to be awarded “Certified Insurance Counselor” in 1979. He was a past board member of the Chambers of Commerce, a member of Our Lady Help of Christians Catholic Church, and past choir member. He was a 3rd degree Knight with the Knights of Columbus and a member of American Legion James O’Hall Post 19 from 1973 to present where he served as commander twice. Elected JALH board member in 1975, he served 32 years until retirement in 2008. He was also past president of the Leesville Jaycees and Jennings Jaycees. Henry was also a member of the Jennings Lion’s Club from 1976 to present and held several offices including president twice and life member of the La Lion’s Club Crippled Children’s Camp in Leesville. Henry gave his all everyday in everything he did and he loved unconditionally. His faith was always strong no matter what obstacle life put in front of him. He gladly bared his cross without ever doubting or questioning God, a true blessing and inspiration to so many people. Henry was the definition of Love, Loyalty, & Strength. He had a high principle in business and his personal life. He never met a stranger. He had a great sense of humor and loved to tell jokes. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, traveling, barbequing, and all kinds of music especially the saxophone. Henry’s memories and love will be in the hearts of many forever and always.

Those left to mourn his loss and cherish his memories is his beloved wife of 49 ½ years and best friend, Linda Moos LeBlanc of Jennings; 4 children, Henry Joseph LeBlanc III and wife Maria of Houston, Tx, Mark Aldwin LeBlanc of Atlanta, Ga, Lara LeBlanc Riley and husband, Bobby of Lake Charles, and Lisa LeBlanc McGillvary and her husband, Bob of Dallas, Tx; and his 13 beautiful grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
