October 1, 2014 – Calgary, AB
A good and gentle man has gone quietly into the night. John Angus LeClair, beloved husband, father and grandfather passed away on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at the age of 84.
John was born December 27, 1929 in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia to Harry and Stella. He was the much loved brother in a family of six sisters. John graduated from St. Francis Xavier University in 1950 and received his RIA (CMA) designation in 1959. In 1956, he married Patricia, the love of his life, and together they had four children. John had a long career with CN, retiring in 1985 to enjoy golfing and spending time with his grandchildren.
John’s every action in life spoke of his love for his family and his faith. He was a man of intelligence and integrity; always kind, always patient, always there. He will be missed profoundly and be remembered for all the days to come.
